Day 113

Actually did more practice swings than real swings today. Reviewed a lesson from a couple months ago and worked on feels for making a full turn. Did 5-6 practice / rehearsals before each ball. Hit 10 balls with a 7-iron. Swing feeling a little better.

Day 5

Sunday, March 29, 2020

Another session in the backyard swinglab.  Hit some full shots with the 7 iron, and then "played" the front nine of Sugar Hill Golf Club, which has closed for the COVID-19.  I used my launch monitor, and estimated the shots that I would have based on how I hit it.

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

Mirror work in the living room. Tomorrow I'm going to start filming my April series of lessons.

Day 114

Did a Superspeed workout, and hit some shots with 7-iron at what felt like 50% speed working on full turn and hips not moving/swaying.

Day 30 - Still raining so it worked on positions without a ball in the basement focused on a rubber tee. Then I set up a little soccer net and chipped into that.

Day 92 - March 30, 2020

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

About 15 minutes working on my backswing. I tweaked it a bit after recording some initial video. I wasn't turning as much, which is what I was worried about, so I shortened the arm motion and increased the turn again.

Day 6

Monday, March 30, 2020

Had physical therapy and had to mow the lawn, so no hitting into the net. 😥

Worked on getting my hips to start my swing with a weighted club.  I'm taking it slow and easy from the top, trying to quiet my hands, while getting them faster through the impact zone, while trying to get my hips open at impact.

Day 115

Started hitting some balls with 7-iron at 50% speed and it was alright. Ramped up to full speed and started shanking the shit out it, to the point of the ball missing the net entirely. I think the Coronavirus pandemic is in my head and causing me to lose focus.  Went inside and putted. Need a lesson but everything is closed with the shelter in place at least until end of April, and likely longer.

Day 93 - March 31, 2020

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

About 30 to 40 minutes downtown. Maybe a bit longer. Really messing around to try to get some good feels. Shoulder still wants to "shrug" and the hands to go down more than out.

Day 7

Tuesday, March 31, 2020

A rainy day and a trip to Sam's to shop for us and my elderly parents kept me indoors today.  Used the weighted club and worked on getting my hips open at impact.  Tomorrow is supposed to be nice, so I plan on getting out and hitting some balls.

Day 94 - April 1, 2020

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

Three hours downtown, and at the end, strained either an intercostal or the transverse abdominis on the left side. Was swinging, for me, pretty damn well, really. Only planned to hit two more balls, and on the penultimate one I felt a little something, and on the next one, a lot of something. Still, feeling like it's mild to moderate.

Day 116

Indoor putting. Haven’t been hitting the ball well at all lately when practicing (shanks), so just going to do some putting for the time being to give myself a break from mental torment of full swing work until I can arrange a lesson. I also plan on working on physical fitness/conditioning during the shelter in place through the next month in CA.
