Day 74

15 minutes of indoor putting today after regular weekend round. Had a rough round on the greens. Completely botched 4 birdie putts inside 15 feet, and by botched I mean didn’t even get inside 6 feet. So putted back and forth across living room rug using a ball as a target.

Day 37.  After yesterday's round, I particularly felt I could have hit my half shots a bit better (in retrospect, I don't know why I thought that, as I had so few to hit).  Anyway, so I did 10 minutes of half shots with my U-iron (gap wedge, from the iron set), indoors, off a mat, not actual golf balls (but balls, not just practice swings).

Day 49 - February 17, 2020

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

Hit 30 balls or so, with Luke and Breckin. Really exaggerated the move in transition (which probably means it wasn't doing it much), and hit the ball well when I felt that. Excited about the next month or so.

Day 38, February 17 2020.  15 minutes pitching (half swing, U-iron) off a mat, into a net.  Focused on setup, as I realized I was pushing a bunch when I was lazy about this.  I wonder if that's come up in rounds?  I'll make it a point of focus.  Also, among my not-golf-balls, I really like the plush ones better than the whiffle ones.  Also, hitting a real ball with a half gap wedge in my set up makes me nervous.

Day 75

Missed Monday 2/18.

Did some Planemate advanced protocol transition drill today. No golf balls, just the transition motion with the full swing band in my office.

Day 50 - February 18, 2020

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

Messed around with the counter-weight SuperSpeed clubs that just arrived. They are too light, I concluded, for working on what I'm doing. So, I spent five more minutes doing mirror work.

Day 39.  Speed Stix, protocol one..  First time with triple digits (100 on the nose) on the red stick in this iteration.  

Didn't do the Speed Stix the past week due to not feeling as great.  Somehow didn't stop me from playing two rounds of golf in the time though.

Day 51 - February 19, 2020

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

Hit a number of balls today righty. Really liking the last feel I had yesterday. Hit one shank when I went pretty slow, and the rest were smashed.

Also hit about 30 balls lefty with my 8I. The swings felt like half swings, which probably means they were 3/4 swings. 🙂 I like the lefty clubs… except the shitty Winn grips.

Day 52 - February 20, 2020

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

Relatively light day. Mirror work for ten minutes listening to a podcast in the morning, and some putts in the afternoon to check out a teaching feel.

Day 41.  Two different practices.  Went to a real putting green (with my real putter and some real balls on real grass).  Did 3' and 6' putts.  I attempted an around-the-world from 6', but without carefully marking beforehand.  I made 9 out of 12.  There was a time not too long ago 2/12 would have been a good score for me on that.  And this green breaks more than the one I used to practice on.

Then got home and did speed sticks, protocol one.  113 mph for the Green Part 2, might be a personal best?

Day 42.  I spent 10 minutes hitting half swings with a 9-iron (typically the longest pitch shot that comes up semi-regularly).  Off a mat, into a net, combination of whiffle and plush balls, a few real ones.

Day 78

Frustrating practice day. A little tired and achy from a long day of being on my feet, so didn’t feel like dealing with Planemate bands which require extra effort.  Hit some balls with 6, 7, and 8-iron, working on completing a full turn before starting downswing. Contact was really poor, thin and off the toe almost every strike. Maybe because it was dark. Had to hit a few little pitch shots to finish up just to feel like I had some solid strikes.

Day 54 - February 22, 2020

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

About 20-25 6-irons in preparation for playing 18 tomorrow near Pittsburgh.

Oh, and I hit one driver, and the tee broke, so I gave up on that.
