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.

    • The only problem I found on bending clubs are the ones that have little plastic/metal inserts on the back side of the clubs.  Because of these inserts, some local proshops, and/or club builders won't touch them for fear of breaking/cracking/popping those inserts. The owner, in need of an adjustment, may be required to send their clubs back to manufacturer. 
    • Day 478 It arrived today. What arrived was my new driver: a Ping 410 Plus with Alta CB Red Soft Regular Shaft. As I am still getting used to the new toy, I started with all the adjustable parts set to the most neutral settings.  Soon I adjusted to help with a slice. All after that change were straight where I was aiming.  I seemed to have picked up 10 MPH in terms of ball speed.  I need to work now on the results not being so high. I intended to hit only 20-25 balls.  I ended up hitting 45 as this club made driving fun.  It was easy to hit towards  various target greens.  What I need to adjust after a few more practice section I the launch angle to lower the fact that wit my older drive I tend to hit high spin. I rarely, if ever, fall in love with a club so quickly, but even with days of getting used to it ahead, as I said in my review on the Ping web site, it was love at first whack.
    • Was wondering if anyone has played here. Playing the ledgends course. 
    • Totally agree with keeping them standard length to start with. Can always grip down when they are long, but can't go the opposite way. Bending Pings is difficult at best and don't assume you will be able to have it done easily. May have to send back to Ping if you want them bent after the fact but they can do it.
    • Day 28 What a GREAT day!  This is why everyone should have a golf coach! So, about 5 weeks ago I was playing great. Then suddenly I completely lost it. Then I got hurt (non-golf related, but screwed up my game). When I came back from my injury I was pretty close to hopeless.  I got with my golf coach and he and I worked through what all had changed in my swing. It turns out I had made a minor adjustment without realizing it. Then I made an adjustment to counter act that adjustment, then another and another and pretty soon my swing was nothing like what my swing used to be like.  My coach brought up the video of my swing when it was good. We compared it to where I found myself after … I'll call it my melt down. Anyway, my coach was able to quickly get me back where I was before. Suddenly I was striping the ball down the middle again. Yay!  Anyhow, back to today's practice. I hit trajectory drills with the driver. I'd hit a high fade, then hit an 8-iron shot. Next I'd hit a low draw, then hit a hybrid. After that I'd hit a high trajectory drive, then hit a 4-irion. Basically I'd work through the 9 shots with the driver: high, medium and low, Draw, straight and fade combinations. But after each driver shot, I'd hit a different club from my bag, picking the club pretty much at random. I didn't want to hit any club more than one time in a row.  In the end I hit the ball so well on the range I had to run out and play 9 holes. My game has returned, I went 3 over for 9. I hit the ball so much better than I'd been hitting it recently. It felt great.  That's the reason everyone should have a golf coach.
