6/10/17: So GIR are "king". Yesterday I shot my lowest 9 holes of the year. 38, no birdies, but 7 pars and 2 bogeys. But I hit 4 GIR, 2 Fringes, and the 3 Greens I missed that I couldn't putt wer

My hips have a tendency to sway back (away from the target) on the backswing...  

Gonna give this a go.   6/1/2017: I spent 1 1/2 hours at the putting green working on chipping with a SW and PW and putting.   I've developed a game where I chip to the 6 holes on the green

6/8: Pitching practice tonight. 15 minutes pitching at different targets in the yard. Only focus was not going too fast and enjoying the evening.

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.

    • If anyone wants to see GG of my rounds at SV and Lawsonia, here they are. Mammoth Dunes and Lac La Belle did not upload correctly (probably because they are newer courses and not yet in GG). https://www.gamegolf.com/player/DeadManUofM/round/3081710 https://www.gamegolf.com/player/DeadManUofM/round/3081711 https://www.gamegolf.com/player/DeadManUofM/round/3081705 https://www.gamegolf.com/player/DeadManUofM/round/3081706
    • Welcome to TST.   We're glad you've joined.    I use TheGrint to keep statistics.

    • Moreover, assuming that it’s considered less safe to hit larger stones, it could be perceived as discouraging a player from taking an action that could make play more safe… There are other instances in the rules that allow for relief from unsafe conditions.  If rocks in a bunker are considered unsafe, then yeah, I was a bit surprised by that limitation.
    • I've been taking some lessons for the past couple months.  My full swing iron and wedge game continue to improve as we have mainly been working on the driver. I am very happy with the irons as far as start lines and curve goes. I feel I am close to a decent golfer with that. The driver continues to be the main challenge for me as it always is. I've been able to put the ball in play for the most part and have a little bit of speed, but path/face and strike consistency has been a struggle. I've worked mainly on some setup, grip and takeaway pieces so far. Miss right now tends to be out of the bottom half of the club. I am getting closer with the takeaway so I will likely try and add a little bit of throw in the DS and see if I can find the center of the face a little more with a higher trajectory. Maybe one day I can even put a fairway wood back in the bag. 😂
