Day 39 - February 7, 2020

Full swing work again. This is going to be almost everything that I do.

Worked from home today swinging back to the top reasonably fast, to early transition and early downswing.

Day 29, February 7 2020.  I missed yesterday, first miss this batch.

Today was 25 putts over a ruler (on carpet), missed 5 right.  Way too high a miss rate.

Day 30.  February 8 2020.  10 minutes indoor swings.  5 in practice mode, 5 in "hit for real" mode since I'm playing tomorrow.  Indoors, off a mat, into a net;  whiffle and plush balls (I prefer the plush ones, maybe I should go buy more).

Day 33

Focus in full swings with the hybrids.  Both were fine off of tee and turf. 5h was better than 4h in terms of expected distance. Still need to focus to keep the fade from going too broad.

Day 41 - February 9, 2020

Full swing work again. This is going to be almost everything that I do.

Ten full swings, a few putts, a few chips. Really felt the "drop" from A4 and a slower backswing. Hitting the ball pretty well right now. Will get something FO on film soon as launch angles seem high, but they were really high last year when I was playing really well, too.

Day 68

Some driver practice working on feeling like weight stays on my back foot through impact. Hit 15 balls with this drill/feel. 
 

Also did some work with irons on not rushing into transition. So added a distinct pause at end of backswing before starting down swing.  Hit another 15 with this drill/feel.

Day 34

Did the hybrids for 30 minutes again. Did better on distance and loft again.  better because I concentrated on pre-swing matters.

Day 31, February 9 2020.  Played 18 today with Lihu, course I hadn't played before.  I didn't play well, but did hit a mere 3 GIR and did make a chip-in birdie.  I'll add up my score and post my game-golf later, right now I feel dehydrated.

Day 69

Some more of the same driver drill, feeling like I’m staying behind the ball on my trail foot. Swung at what felt like 50% speed.

Day 42 - February 10, 2020

Full swing work again. This is going to be almost everything that I do.

Just time to hit about 15 balls after a lesson today, but it took 15 minutes, so it's not THAT short of a time period.

2/11/20 - Day 1

first time posting in a while but I’ve recently started getting back into the swing of things 🙄

Today, I worked on bead with 4-6’ putts in the office between patients with great success which I’m positive will directly equate on-course performance 😏

Worked with 7-iron today, doing a drill to add a pause at top of backswing, to not rush into downswing. Did it with 20 balls. 
 

Then more of the same driver work from the last 2 days.

    • If you have been doing regrips you are already well on your way. There is nothing mystical about club making, just geometry, physics, and common sense. If you've got the vise (by far most important tool), torch or heat gun, and a drill as mentioned, those are 3 big basics. Here is what I would add. Utility knife 48 inch ruler epoxy (start with quick set) sand paper (medium and fine grit) hacksaw, manual pipe cutter, rotary tool, or chop saw. Of course if you have a built out shop a belt sander is useful, as is the chop saw, but you can do all the same stuff with manual tools. If you have specific questions about picking shafts, I would ask those separately as you have to be more specific dealing with tip diameter, weight, length, flex, etc. I would look at some videos on Youtube as a starting point. I recommend finding the Mobile Clubmaker. 
    • You sound like you’re giving too much weight to the mental game.
    • Went to the course today to just putt and chip and just get some fresh air. There were two cop cars there turning people away. Thats the second time in a week I have seen the police used to shut down a golf course. Meanwhile, the jogging path that circles the golf course boundary fence was teeming with people walking and jogging, and the local park has people flying kites and hanging out as well. I just cannot understand my local government's emphasis on keeping people off the golf course. 
    • I sort of skimmed through this so I'll just add what I'm seeing here in Massachusetts. Laid off from my job of 18 years last fall I started working in the pro shop and will be teaching at the golf school that operates at the same club.  We are a public 18 hole course with range, restaurant, bar and patio. The governor issued a stay at home advisory last Tuesday.  He was keeping parks open though.  He said " just be smart and don't play basketball or football". ... Friggin brilliant!  We closed the restaurant, bar and patio the weekend before. The course and range closed on Tuesday.  The owner of the course talked to the board of health and town officials.  Where the order specified "brick and mortar" we moved our operation outside.  We abided by most of what was listed I the survey in this thread other than members only and group size.  We also wiped down every cart that came back in.  Staff wore latex gloves. We reopened on Thursday afternoon since the town said we sounded ok.  We sold out Friday and Saturday tee times.  Friday afternoon the board of health and 3 cops came down ( and they were not social distancing) with a revised letter from the governor closing us down.  We did let everyone finish.  We told the cops they would have to go out and get everyone if they wanted them off now. I can see how stupid people are though.  We did our part yet people come together in a car.  We give hem separate carts and a few people wanted to ride together and then questioned me on the one cart one person rule.  I told them that's the rule or you get no cart at all.  It's what we have to do to stay open... This week I plan on going out myself.  I work there.   I'm safer out there than anywhere else.  Walking down the street there are others out there, going to the grocery store, liquor store.  There is no "need" to play but I'm no threat out there and nobody is a threat to me.
    • Yes some great tips ...I'm seeing many issues I need to work on ..over-swing is certainly one   currently listening to mental golf game book .. my short game nerves + negative imaging costing me so many shots I'm putting around 35-40 a round far too many 3 putts (with the odd 4 putt) and chipping pitching not the best for the same reasons.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                the majority of my recent rounds has me in great positions to birdie or least par but blow it with poor directed chip-pitch shots backed up by woeful putting..
