Day 91: Same thing as the past couple of days: right arm drill, getting hips more open and elbow more bent at impact. Worked in some slow and faster full swings as well. Looking forward to getting to the range and doing some filming tomorrow and/or Wednesday.

Day 169

Tried to work on hitting wedges today, but hit 5 balls over my net before conceding that my platform and mat need to be closer to the net. Didn’t feel like exerting the effort to move stuff, so worked on a rescue long iron punch out shot. Was doing okay off the mat, but I seem to struggle on course on more awkward lies.

Day 87 - played 9 and shot a 41. No hooks today but a few pushes. Good news is the ranges are opening and I can get a handle on ball flight.

Day 149 - May 26, 2020

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

Another interesting day. Went to the range at about 6:30. Fortunately the back end is in the shade. Started off hitting some half swing 7I. Did not go well. Had no feel for the swing, began searching. Hit some 8I. Chipped some drivers. Hit some wedges. More 7I. Almost none good. Some fine, but I knew they were not done "properly."

Toward the end, found a feeling when I decided to hit some 5I. Not sure why… but I had the feeling and striped a bunch of 5I in a row. Left on a high note.

But not before hitting a bunch of pitches and chips. Longer ones, 30-40 yards.

Day 3 - 5-27-20 (3/3)

This challenge was the only reason I spent 5 minutes practicing today, so I'm glad I'm trying it.  Spent 5 minutes after a long day practicing grip and start of the backswing/takeaway.

Day 171

Hit irons off my mat for a little bit, working on keeping hips more quiet in the backswing. Contact was awful, nothing felt right at all and plenty of mosquitos out, so just called it a day.

Day 151 - May 28, 2020

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

Rainy day, so I hit balls for 15 minutes before and again for a little bit between lessons today. High arms, without being excessive. I still have to manage the hips and keep the width, but yeah… high hands works well.

I worked yesterday, too, but it was my 15th anniversary so I didn't get a chance to post it. I could have at just after midnight, but that felt unfair. 🙂

    • I really don't have a problem with Bryson losing his cool in the bunker. I've seen it on the course. Shoot, I've done it on the course. He never should have said anything to the cameraman. After the round, he just should have said he was frustrated, and was sorry. He shouldn't have brought up his "brand". I think he's only 26, and I know I did things when I was 26 that I wish I could take back, but I learned from them. He'll be ok.
    • I think this is pretty interesting. I think that it is going to shift from "modern equipment makes the ball go too far" to "I don't like Bryson, he is ruining the game!" I wouldn't be surprised if his worst finish the rest of the year is still in the top 15.
    • We chemical engineers use this easy to read psychometric chart.😀
    • So which topped shot was the best one then?😜
    • Some comments from a GOLF.COM article after Bryson's win: John Wood, PGA Tour caddie for Matt Kuchar (@Johnwould😞 Bryson seems to have broken the code for Bryson. And I think he has transferred what has been done at the long driving competitions for a while now to highly competitive golf. I couldn’t be more impressed. I was watching today and thought how economical this type of game is to practice. You practice drivers, wedges, chips and putting. He won’t often have to hit mid-irons, ever. Maybe a couple a day to par-5s. But for the most part, playing the game like he is playing it, and how courses are allowing him to play it through setup, why would you spend the time on fairway woods and hybrids and long/mid-irons when they will be used so seldom. Sean Zak, senior editor (@Sean_Zak😞 I like what John said. Bryson found Bryson’s template — bomb it a mile, hit easier clubs into greens and if you putt well you’ll win. The difference between his template and other players’ is that his template works better at 80 percent of courses on Tour. That’s the bottom line. It makes it hard to imagine him missing the cut at a cookie-cutter Tour course. Does it work in Scotland? It’s hard to say right now, but across parkland America, he’s going to be dominating if he putts well.    Here is an interesting graphic (from Geoff Shackelford blog post); illustrates the difference between Bryson and the rest of the field at Detroit Golf Club and hole #1   Also from a Geoff Shackleford blog post:  A few stats of note: First player in the 16 years of ShotLink and “Strokes Gained” to lead a field in both driving and putting. Averaged 350.6 on the eight measuring holes, compared to a field average of 301.5. He averaged 329.8 on all drives at tree-lined Detroit Golf Club, compared to the field’s 297.6 average. DeChambeau reached 23-under-par to win by three strokes over Matthew Wolff, who started the day three ahead. Wolff hit five more fairways for the week, if that means anything (38/56 to Bryson’s 33/56). According to CBS’s Jim Nantz, DeChambeau’s drives Sunday ended up 423 yards longer than playing partner Troy Merritt’s. And 143 yards longer than Wolff’s tee shots on the non-par-3s. There are, of course, issues that come with all of this madness. In no particular order: I get more questions asking if there is drug testing instead of equipment or COVID-19 testing. Half of most social media posts regarding DeChambeau descend into unfair character assassination about the naturalness of the weight and strength gain without any evidence this is something other than just hard work and an excessive diet. There are undoubtedly kids and parents watching and sending junior to the gym instead of our to play or practice golf. This has always been a risk of allowing golf to become a long drive contest, and now we have an extreme example to inspire a movement. Even with CBS having their best production yet, highlighted by some excellent storytelling around the DeChambeau dominance, the sight of driver-wedge golf and 8-irons into par-5s lacks any significant give-and-take between player and course. I’m not saying it’s boring, but there is less satisfaction in watching a course unable to call on a variety of skills. The obvious question of such a dominant and shocking performance: where do we go from here on the distance debate?
