June 9th:- Played 18 today. 40 out,42 in for an 82 total. Feeling that the practice is starting to pay off.

June 10 - 15 minutes of slow driver swings working on my new drill from my Evolvr lesson.  Used my shadow to make sure I was keeping centered on the hip turn. The drill is for me to keep the swing wide on the back swing and narrow on the downswing. Trying to reduce casting. 

I also did about 10 minutes of chips and pitches in the yard. My grass is a bit long, so it was like US Open rough. :-P

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 were in decent spots except for one. 

So I decided today, I would try to build on it. My alignment was a smidge off on a few shots yesterday (they went straight where I was aiming however). So today was get my alignment right day. Just making sure I'm square to the target, as opposed to a little right or left. For the most part the misses are manageable, however, my proximity to the hole needs to be a smidge better. It's getting there. I'm getting close to where I have that 10+ GIR round. It's nice using an 8-iron from 150 yards as opposed to 7-iron (or 6).

6/10: Played 18 today, shot 91. Didn't get much time to warm-up and had trouble finding my swing early on. Had a few quick doubles that dragged down the score right from the start. So, so from there until the back nine when I found a groove, won 8 holes straight and finished, up 3 skins. ;-)

6/10.  I know pre-round range is for warming up, not practicing, but I ignored that this morning.  I wouldn't have played today if it wasn't a club event, and I haven't seen many of the guys in a while.  And I actually hit a good number of good shots during the round anyway.

Okay, what did I do for practice?  All outside, real balls.  Small bucket:  take a backswing, check position.  Reset.   If the previous one was good, take another, but now go slow on the downswing to rehearse that.  If that goes well also, reset and take a swing.

During the round, I tried to check my backswing on the practice swing when I had time, but didn't go through the full above.  I hit enough good shots where I think it was the change, and enough bad ones to remind me why I should plan my practice schedule and playing schedule together.  Hopefully I didn't hurt my progress by doing this.

6/10:  Hit a round of 16 pitch shots in my yard from my 40yd. tees.  Focus was not only inline impact, but also keeping that inline feeling just a little through impact.  Result was very nice: 16 out of 16 hit solid and true, with only 1 pulled about 4 yard left, and 1 pushed ~3 yards right.  I was pleasantly surprised, given the kinda strong bourbon and coke I had just about an hour prior...I was still buzzin' pretty good. ;-)

Later tonight, hit a round of 20 foam balls w/my TourStriker p7i off my mat to my target flag.  Did a little grip check through the set, and main focus was inline impact via feel of my left shoulder driving down through ball to create lag.  Good session.

Finished with 3 sets of 20 full swings w/my OW--really going after it, working on keeping form and balance through an intense S&C session.

Hope to play tomorrow evening after our family reunion tomorrow, but that may be a pipe dream, as we usually end up at family's house for a while afterwards.

6/11:

Played 18 today.   My goal was to work on Key 1 and 2.   I did the wall drill before playing and it helped with ball contact.   I played the best round of the year.   Maybe there is something to this 5 keys stuff :whistle:.     I had 8 GIR and another 9 nGIR.   A work in progress..

Bucket balls on range before playing. Good contact and distance. Too bad did not translate to course

6/11: Got six holes in this afternoon before the lightning showed up. Four over with 3 pars, 2 singles, and a double. Lots of rain the past week but course was in great shape. Greens are filling in and speeding up (since the aeration a while back)...I knocked three 10-footers almost 5-feet passed the hole, something I almost never do.

Other than that, driver is getting more dependable with each round and irons were working well from the start, which was nice. Also had a couple good shots with my 3W.
