Day 410

Didn't bother going to the course this am. Figured it would be still soggy after yesterday's soaker. 

So it was some indoor carpet stuff (putts/chips) for about 10 minutes, or so, with probably more through out the rest of today. 

Right now,  I am going to kick back with a warm beverage,  and read some of Penick's Little Red Book. Lots of good stuff in that book.

Day 7: 

Yesterday was first missed day of this cycle. Today was a great practice. Partial wedge day mainly with some full Pas thrown in for good measure. Hit to targets at 20, 40, 60, 80, and 100 yards and had to hit three balls within an acceptable range (to my eye) of the target before moving to the next target. Solid day.

Day 377 - February 15, 2019 - Got to Golf Evolution about two hours before I was needed for some lessons. Wrote up the TRUE post, and then got in ten minutes of nice dedicated practice on the full swing stuff. Getting to where the downswing has a bit more speed.

DAY 454     There will be a time when I am NOT posting, but, not today!!  Spent 5 minutes in my home office with my shortened club and doing partial swings in the door frame to help me with keeping my head still when turning on my backswing and then into impact.

Day 217:

Day ended with a quick 9 holes.  Really was one of the best I have ever shot, 4 GIR, no penalties, only one 6 and putting was fairly good.

However: when I took the ball out of the last hole, the gods of golf indicated they were fooling with me as I pulled my back solidly though I was able to limp to my care and then limp into my house.  Heating pads and Tiger Balm® did the trick.  So I suspect I will have a gentle practice on Saturday!

Day 411

30-40 minutes of short game stuff this am. 20-60 yard shots.  Some putting. Conditions were damp, but manageable. Turf was a little long due to lack of scheduled mowing. Greens were a little slow, due to the same two reasons. 

I figure they will catch up with the mowing in the short game area later today. 

Used various clubs, and back swing lengths. Focus was on crisp, ball first contact. Used an intermediate target about 12-18 inches in front of the ball for aiming purposes for the club face. That intermediate target worked in conjunction with my targeted landing area.

Also paid attention to my body posture, and alignment, which worked in conjunction with my club face, and targeted landing areas. 

Drier conditions should be back to normal in a day or two. Been wetter, and colder for this area, for this time of year.

DAY 455   Spent 5 minutes this evening in my home office working on positions in the swing with my shortened iron.  Trying to help my right shoulder/elbow do a better job of internal rotation.

Day 8:

Hit foam balls with my 6 iron. Shots didn’t feel as crisp as they have this past week. Was hitting the ball a little thin and a bit pushy.

Day 218:

Despite a day that started with a pulled back, I was still able to spend about eo minutes with half -3/4 swings with my wedges.

All felt good and it was all I could to to keep myself from attempting full swings.  I decided I could simply weight until I was feeling 100%.  Tomorrow I will do a one though the bag.  Monday will be another executive course corse to take my sense of new found gam to put towards the test.

Day 1 - 15 minutes putting, eye-to-ball alignment:

A bit late to this topic, but I dug out my old golf mat today and practiced 15 minutes of putting. Did short and long-distance puts with a focus on eye-to-ball alignment and not looking up to see where the ball rolls after impact.

Day 127: Going simple today for my mirror work. Just doing 5 minutes on my set up and grip. I could tell I was getting lazy with both during my round yesterday.

    • Rock Bottom did wee, by me  
    • I'm not doing it here just for the heck of it - I think that BPB is wildly over-rated. I think it's boring. It completely fails to live up to what it could or should be given the property. If you need to hang your hat on me agreeing that "some holes aren't boring" then that says quite a bit. Untrue. Get an avatar for yourself, please. My opinion in a nutshell? 20-26 yard wide fairways on relatively long holes force you to almost always just hit a driver and to find the really narrow fairway. There's almost never a decision to be made on the tee about the club OR the location of the tee shot. Angles don't matter, but they really don't matter at BPB. The bunkers are set into the rough, meaning that the fairway corridors have been somewhat artificially narrowed. The greens are generally flat, relatively oval-shaped, and uninspiring. There are few that have any interesting contours, interior OR exterior. Virtually every hole is a mid- to long-iron that must carry and land and stop on the green. Very few holes even allow a run-up shot. Thick rough with virtually no recovery options everywhere. Almost no half-par type holes (unless you count the ample 4.5-par par fours). A dud of a hole opens and closes the course: 1 and 18, meh. Six-hour rounds are common.
    • I prefer the Zero gloves.  It is basically a one size adapts to all.  Feels more like a second ski and I have enjoyed it over 6 months of using it.  Reasonably priced.
    • I think is it not that we are playing great golf as we are, in my case at least, playing improved or more consistent golf.  And, we don't go into detail of what has taken a step backwards as how we regain out steps forward. I felt frustrated as the OP is feeling. Lessons, video taping, taking suggestions and tips taken to heart helped a lot.      
    • Just the opposite- I think you like to take contrarian views. And oftentimes I agree with you but here I think you are way off. As it is I’ve gotten you to agree that the Black is on a great property for golf (which is a major factor in evaluating a golf course) and has at least some holes that you don’t think are boring. And no one has refuted all the shots I noted that have strategic decisions involved. Again- agree to disagree.
