6/8:  Got to the club today.
20 mins. range session for warmup, but mainly worked on getting swing grooved back in w/some ball flight feedback
Walked 18 holes; worked on not breaking left wrist down (causing my hook).  Shot 89, which is okay but a little disappointing based on how I'd been practicing and striking it (up until the last few days anyway), but my full swing game was low-80s...from 80 in and around the greens, just a whole lot of meh.

June 8th:- 5 mins chipping, followed by 10 mins full swing; aiming for a full shoulder turn while maintaining key#1- steady head.

6/9: Putted for 45 minutes. Didn't use the level today, to see if I could trust my reads without verifying the exact % slopes. Definite progress in how I read greens after taking Aimpoint as i was able to get some decent reads. I can't say I'm very good at using my feet, but I think it's some combination of feet and eyes and general awareness. Perhaps I'm getting too familiar with this one practice green though! I'll have to move around to different places.

Also swung without a ball for 10 minutes on the range- to see if my neck could handle it. Progress. Hopeful to swing and hit some balls next week.

June 9 - A bit sore from yesterday's round. I may have to ride when playing for a while. Did some shoulder turn work and swing feels from my Evolvr lesson. I hope to film some this weekend. Also, I will do some pitch and chip work in longer grass later. I had some fluffy lies and my shots went short yesterday.

6/9:  more pitching and chipping practice; some slow-motion full swing work to work on getting the club from going back too flat on the backswing.

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."

Like how you just slip it in there that not only you have a "golf room" (unless of course the wife sent you out to the wood shed, literally!) and that it is "new"

I would imagine a fair I number of folks in the sand trap are a wee bit jealous!

 

6 min on the train doing my lay stretches amidst the crowd

5 min Sklz swing trainer

visitor is staying thru Sunday (ugh) when I take off for two weeks of travel. Think I'm gonna have to do Sunday golf and risk the wrath of the wife!!! If I don't post after Sunday, you know what happened!

6/9:  Pitching work in the yard.  48 balls from 35yd. "tees" to my flag/hole.  Worked solely on getting good lean (inline impact) and using my body to drive the swing.  Result was very solid impact, low and spinning, though I hit several a bit long.

Still setting it up.  Check out its progress: 

 

6/9 : in addition to some mirror practice, I went to the range to work on my latest priority piece (having hands less way inside at the top).  I also wanted to see some ball flight to convince myself I wasn't about to start snap-fading everything (although I know that isn't a problem as long as it moves me in the right direction, but I will utterly panic when it happens).

Bucket of 33 balls, outdoors.  The first 20 or so were all set up, take a backswing, stop at the top and check, sometimes using the camera, then address again, stop at the top and check, the slow motion the downswing, then if I did the first two things well, I'd attempt a full shot.  And I hit some really good shots on the range today, mostly with my 6-iron.

    • Yeah, I don't really see the problem with what he said in the interview. Nothing wrong here imo. He's not the biggest fan of team events and isn't quite comfortable in it compared to every other week where it's just himself. Just because he's one of the best players in the world doesn't mean he's supposed to be a huge fan of team events. IIRC, Tiger didn't come across as the most enthusiastic player in those events either, at least not in some parts of his career. People are different and not everyone enjoy playing in a team. Some love that stuff and soak up all the energy. Others have their energy sapped by those things. It is of course the same for every player, deviating from the typical tour routines, but people deal with it in different ways. Brooks might be one that struggle more with the transition, but I doubt he's the only one.

    • Day 47: A little work on priority piece and a little work on COVID-19 day 6/7 drills.

    • Day 201.  Played 18 holes today.  A course where I should have hit more than the 5 GIR I hit and should have shot lower than the 87 I did.  The driving range was closed before the round, and I hit my opening tee shot O.B..  😞  Not sure why I missed so many shots, especially driver, right.  Will have to do some outdoor practice to complement my indoor practice to ensure I'm not getting wild.
