6/6:

Played Coyote Preserve in Fenton, MI.   If you haven't played this, it is a must.  I worked on my approach shots.  I set up the net in my garage before I played and hit my 7 iron until I was comfortable and then I hit my 5 until I felt I was making good contact.  That work paid off on the course today.  I hit some real good shots (for me) and thought this week would be a very good week to continue to work on 180-100 yard shots.

Copied @roamin without knowing it.  Pouring outside most all day, so I putted in the hallway for 10-15mins.

6/6: Same, more putting. That time of year. :-D :beer:

Supposed to see the sun again on Thursday.

6/6:  Though I e-like him just fine, I did not copy @roamin today. ;-) :beer:  Rain moved out for us to just sprinkles after 4 or so, so I hit the course...
10 mins. warmup w/OW; focus on getting loose and holding posture and form
10 mins. pitching practice in yard from ~30yds.; focus on driving swing w/body (holed my second shot! but could tell it was going to be hit or miss a bit afterwards)
Walked 9 holes at club, playing 2 balls on most holes to get in the most practice.  Was off my game, but still scored ~bogey golf.  Focus was on trying to get my ish together, which I could only manage to do about half the time.  I blame not starting with a range session.  That and my shirt felt tight.  For real.  No more w/that one shirt.  Cost me 5 strokes, easy. :-P

6th June: 10 mins full swing practice, again focused on grip, alignment and the take-away. Need to maintain a slow speed while practicing. Very easy to start swinging "all out" while trying to ingrain new movements.

6/7:

Ran out of gas working around the house today.   Instead of working on my approach shots, I decided to work on some chipping.  60 minutes chipping using different clubs.

6/7:  rain finally let up, but the driving range was still closed, so I spent about an hour at the short game green chipping and pitching.  I tried some cut lobs with a lob wedge, but the proximity to a parking lot made me a little nervous.  I don't need to blade one through a windshield.

6/7: Had a small break in the rain this evening and managed to get a little alone time in the front yard with my sand wedge. It's only been a few days, but I missed her. :-P

5 minutes of slow-mo swings w/o ball, focus on hip turn/no sway, then 5 minutes of "easy" shots, focus on contact and tempo.

6/7:  Would've been a magnificent day to play, but wife put me to work on our shop reno (clean-out and demo work today), which will soon be an awesome man-cave, so can't complain.

10 mins. S&C drills w/OW; 4 sets of 20; focused on trying to maintain solid form, but had trouble doing so.  Don't know if it was the labor beforehand or what, but balance, plane, and axis all felt loose and generally un-good.  Hope to play tomorrow, but will prioritize a serious range session beforehand to try and get things back in order.  Sometimes, for me, it just takes the feedback of feeling the strike and seeing the flight to get things back on track.

5 min Sklz swing trainer. Took long slow swings to try to figure out best form. Not very convincing

June 8 - Played 18 yesterday and had to walk due to wet conditions. My left knee was not happy even with the brace. Playing 9 today. I did some stretching this morning and will roll out the kinks at lunch using my AccuPoint. For those of you that use foam rollers, try this one. It does a better job.

6/8/17:

69 days and counting. Played a few "holes" today. I made a little limited flight "foam ball" course in the yard. And played a few holes on that... Mostly focusing on smooth tempo and accuracy.

June 8.  Did two separate five-minutes each things at home.

* Worked on back-swing.  Ball, but no hitting, using the mirror in my new golf room.  Backswing to the top, slowly, aiming to get the hands above my right shoulder at the top.  This isn't the aim of the end result, but is exaggerating in the other direction, as my hands are way way way inside at the top as of my latest video.

* Medicine ball at-home driver drill from LSW.  No golf ball here, just trying the driver backswing with the medicine ball, trying to extend through the bottom area.

    • Day 170.  I got home way too late, but remembered the challenge so I'm doing some of UGP's stretches.  Probably good given how little I moved today.  (Incidentally, earlier today I saw my future golf room for the first time, better than the previous one!  Ten days until setup!)
    • Almost always putt. Either with my putter or a club from PW-7 iron using the same putting stroke depending the pin location and grass condition. 
    • Yeah you must’ve missed that. It was posted earlier by @fredf then reposted by @Missouri Swede.
    • This is good stuff and interesting to hear from someone that plays on such big greens. I have never had that luxury/challenge, depending on the green. I find it so interesting that some people love partial shots (could be full swing but reduced power), and others don't want any part of it. For me, in that same situation of 100 yards with back edge at 110, this is how I would take it. Full shots are 80-85 yards for 53o, 95-100 yards for PW, 110 yards for 9I. I would almost always take a 9I into this green, unless there is serious trouble long. A 85-95% 9 iron is going to leave me on the green almost all of the time, barring L-R miss. If I hit it super pure, or I have some extra adrenaline pumping, I'm over for sure, but close. If it is sloping toward the back, then its a pitching wedge, and an almost certain downhill putt, but that's the nature of the beast. I use a Garmin approach S20, which is fairly basic, but has done a really good job of telling me center, front and back of the greens when I have played. When I know the pin layout for the day, I do cater to that, but if I have any doubt, or it is scary at all, I play for the center
    • I have gone through the replies and the main claim is 'Serious misconduct'. I get that but it seems like a grey area. open to interpretation.  I can't find any section of the rules that describe the scenario that i provided and the rules are very specific in terms of objects, balls hit, touched, where participants stand, act etc. There are other reasons the said example could count as legitimate play. Perhaps Player B is putting away from the hole because he wants an easier uphill putt to finish the hole. Also if  Player B's ball is directly opposite Player A's ball and putts it pass the hole and just pass his partners mark it is an over hit and the putt coming back is going to show the line for the next putt. Misconduct or inherent part of the game. Have we lost the freedom to decide on the direction of the next stroke. NB. The 4BBB I am referring to would be part of a Team Stableford competion. So there is no conceding putts involved.   Ahhh I have found some clarity. Point 7.  1.2a/1 - Meaning of Serious Misconduct The phrase “serious misconduct” in Rule 1.2a is intended to cover player misconduct that is so far removed from the expected norm in golf that the most severe sanction of removing a player from the competition is justified. This includes dishonesty, deliberately interfering with another player’s rights, or endangering the safety of others. The Committee must determine if the misconduct is serious considering all the circumstances. Even if the Committee determines that the misconduct is serious, it may take the view that it is more appropriate to warn the player that a repeat of the misconduct or similar misconduct will result in disqualification, instead of disqualifying him or her in the first instance. Examples of actions by a player that are likely to be considered serious misconduct include: Deliberately causing serious damage to a putting green. Disagreeing with the course setup and taking it on himself or herself to move tee-markers or boundary stakes. Throwing a club towards another player or spectator. Deliberately distracting other players while they are making strokes. Removing loose impediments or movable obstructions to disadvantage another player after that other player has asked him or her to leave them in place. Repeatedly refusing to lift a ball at rest when it interferes with another player in stroke play. Deliberately playing away from the hole and then towards the hole to assist the player’s partner (such as helping the player’s partner learn the break on the putting green). Deliberately not playing in accordance with the Rules and potentially gaining a significant advantage by doing so, despite incurring a penalty for a breach of the relevant Rule. Repeatedly using vulgar or offensive language. Using a handicap that has been established for the purpose of providing an unfair advantage or using the round being played to establish such a handicap. Examples of actions by a player that, although involving misconduct, are unlikely to be considered serious misconduct include: Slamming a club to the ground, damaging the club and causing minor damage to the turf. Throwing a club towards a golf bag that unintentionally hits another person. Carelessly distracting another player making a stroke.
