Day 5: worked on my bead with the putter for a little change. Putted on a yardstick. First time trying this. It was ... interesting to start and then I did okay.

Day 39.  A dozen balls hit with good, full swings with an 8-iron, focused on setup, in my practice area.  House guests tell me the noise doesn't travel that much, but they were aware I was hitting golf balls.  Good to know!

Day 289

Just some dry, no ball swings this morning. 

Focus was on a one piece take away to the top, and starting my down swing with a left hip movement. As the club head passed through  the impact position, I wanted feel my wrists release, and hear the "swoosh"  sound made by the club head speed. 

Did about 20 of these swings using my 6i practice club. Then another 20 using my 2i practice club. In place of a ball, I used tees, just clipping thr tops of them.

DAY 327    Rise and Grind!!  2 hours on the range working on getting more forward shaft lean and my chest more over the ball at impact...... since these two were the areas I need to address next based on my playing lesson last Friday.   So I hit balls off downhill lies, used my Impact Snap, did Pump Drills, ... slow motion drills.   Made some progress, though still a long way to go.     Will work indoors and on my patio after dinner.... to get in more reps.

Day 255 - October 16, 2018 - Spent a good 15 minutes working on my backswing and downswing pieces. I'm still loving the "right palm out" feel. Could do more "braking" but I'm not too dismayed. Today was a good session.

Day 40.  Today being Tuesday, it was putting day.  I got a good 30 minutes in, mostly within 10', after work and before a social engagement.  Real balls at a real grass putting green (my home course's practice area).

Day 33: 

Range day. Off of mats so instead of wedges as planned I worked on my full swing priority piece...key #4. Established a better posture than as of late and conducted the "pump drill" with my PW and 6 Irons. I would mix in a series of full shots here and there. Hit some really good shots...and some shanks lol. All part of practice I guess.

Day 100! (Never thought I would make it here!)

Time constraints are limiting me to 10 minutes of swings off a mat.  As this is different from my usual work, it makes it seem as if I were not working enough.  Focus was on position of hands on every aspect to the swing.

Day 20

10 minutes working on backswing and top of downswing. Having real trouble keeping the club reasonably in a swing plane as I I tend to drop the club towards the ground and then coming down inside-to-outside.

DAY 328     2 1/2 hours on the range working on improving my forward shaft lean, impact, ...   used Pump Drill, hitting off downhill lies, 9 to 3 Drill, and Impact Snap.    I am making some progress, still a long way to go.   One of the very nice things is that they just introduced hundreds of new golf ball on the range.... sweet!!

    • Posers gonna pose. Who cares?.....It doesn't matter? Why?.....I don't think these players are cheating....some people just have bad days.....though when I see a + cap post two scores in the 90's in an event...I gotta laugh a bit...one bad day...ya things happen....back to back scores in the 90's???....assuming other scores aren't really high in their flight....then they had brutal conditions to play in. There are far more vanity capper than sandbag caps....vanity cappers are harmless and only hurt themselves in events or gambling. Tournaments need not care.....they want to collect the entry fees. I do know some legit young competitive Ams here not post all their rds played (likely what they might call practice/casual rds)....they generally only enter competitive event results....likely to showcase their caps when they are applying for scholarships and/or entry into high level Am events.
    • Ugh, we caught a guy pulling that shit in a tournament once. He didn't get invited back. 
    • 🤣 probably should have been "descent". But it doesn't really matter. It's all just a big string of BS anyway.
    • Added #12 to the composite page. I tried to cut the corner of the dogleg left, but caught the lip of the bunker, which slowed the ball down and left it on the downslope past the bunker, so I had a really low shot that bounced on and settled about 6 feet from the pin and then made the putt. I nearly also added #15, a 175yd par 3, the ball was tracking the flag but came up 15 feet short, and the putt came up 4 inches short.  I only need #14 and #15 on the composite sheet: the home course is another story (still 10 holes needed).
    • Played my first 18 holes since late 2014 today.  I shot a 106 (66.2 / 117), which I was really surprised by.  I actually shot better on the back 9, which is the opposite of what I used to do.  I used to play 9 holes almost exclusively and stretching it to 18 seemed to just fatigue me and it showed on the scorecard.  My son (12) and I had a great time.  I scored 2 pars, should of had another 1-2.  There were so many stupid strokes on the card.  6 penalties, 2 3-putts, 2 times I took 2 strokes in the same bunker, on top of your normal duff/skull from a weekend warrior.  It makes me feel really good, because through all of that it felt like I was on track for 120, not 106.  It tells me I'm not that far away from the mid 90s again.  When I played a lot (2-3 9s a week about 6-8 years ago) I'd normally shoot between 42 and 45 like clockwork.  Granted this new course is slightly tougher with tighter fairways, I feel like I'll be back to a place where I'm shooting respectable scores. Where I'm struggling most, like I was in 2012-2014, is distance.  I simply don't hit the ball that far.  It makes playing even somewhat forward tees (3rd set from the back) really tough.  I tracked a few of my better drives (3w, I have no control over the 1w) and on a great shot I was only getting 200-210 out of it.  My 5i is about 155 and my 7i is about 135.  A 375 yard par 4 is common and nearly impossible for me to reach in 2.  If I actually wanted to go for it, I'd need to pull a 4h for my second shot.  That's just not good for me, so I'll hit 3w, AW, AW, to give me an opportunity for a 1-putt par or more likely a 2-putt bogey.  A 350 yard par 4 will at least let me go 3w, 5i.  So yes, I'm dealing with that.  I need to figure out where to get 10 yards throughout the bag, or learn how to hit a 1w with some confidence.  I'm sure newer technology would help, but my clubs (Taylormade Burner 2.0) aren't that old.  I have noticed that newer sets have a 7i loft where my 5i is.  That makes me wonder, is it as hard to hit that new 5i as it is for me to hit my current 3i (as they'd have the same loft)?
