Bummer, my post didn’t go through yesterday. 
 

Day 16 - Yesterday was grip work and filming my Evolvr videos. Today I got my feedback, worked on my pivot with a “helicopter drill” I was given. I’ll film it tomorrow.

Day 177

Mevo arrived today! Last few UPS delivery attempts have been delayed by local demonstrations, so I wasn't sure it was going to come in today or not.

I kind of jumped right into setting it up and swinging. I was hitting with my 7-iron and was getting some really bizarre carry and spin numbers - like 190-200 yards carry and 2300 rpm. Then I realized that the I had driver selected for the club, which must have been influencing the algorithm. Once I switched to 7-iron, the numbers seemed to align pretty well with what I see on the launch monitor in my lessons - 160-165 carry, 6000-7000 rpm.

Now I just need to start figuring out the best way to use the Mevo for practice.

Day 95 - played 9 at 6:30 AM again. Three pars and driving was pretty good with 4/7 fairways and only one miss put me in a bad spot. Approach shots were off though. The ranges will open again next week, so I will work on it there.

Day 179

Did a little exercise with the Mevo this evening to see if I could quell some of the variability I was seeing in swing speed. I warmed up with 15 balls, and then hit 20 more balls, stepping off the mat, doing a pre-shot routine, and then hitting the ball. The process seemed to work well, and I was able to get the standard deviation of SS down from 3.9 mph to 1.6 mph.

Day 96 - Worked on driver and 6 irons drills and filmed to upload to Evolvr. Also did superspeed training and hit 106 with the green and 99 with the driver. I repeated the driver to be sure and got 97.

    • 1) Yes, I'm sure Lydia has said stupid things in her life...... BUT....but in from of a camera....I'm a LPGA fan....I'm struggling to remember anything stupid she's done or said when a camera was rolling....good on her. 2) agree 3) agree
    • Looking at the 2020 Symetra player priority list...from your 1st post....I thought it was Kristy McPherson...she's won under $2.5M...but she's not a long hitter....then I thought it might be Vicky Hurst (a fairly long hitter).....but she's toiled longer on the Symetra vs. LPGA...and won about only $1.6M...both have been on Solheim teams. If #1 really has been a LPGA leader in driving distance a few years ago...I'm thinking Joanna Klatten...but she's made less than $500k and not been on a Solheim. So unless the info on Pro #1 is incorrect....I'm struggling who on the Symetra fits the info provided. The members had/have a big intangible.....course knowledge....IMO....it might be worth 1 or 2 strokes per rd.....IMO....member #1 had a bit on an advantage not having to play in the group with the gals (nerves) and the ability to watch them a bit in the group ahead....hope he plays with the gals in rd 2 & 3. The Symetra pros play for a living...no surprise on their process, work ethic and day to day muscle memory....I believe the members all have regular day jobs and just naturally talented golfers. Symetra pros are talented.....and yes we are not comparing them to the LPGA premier pros in this thread....but there's a bit difference in talent and mental toughness of elite LPGA pros.....especially the top 30. Glad you're having a great time playing with the gals....it's always GREAT playing golf with really TALENTED female golfers which is so rare to play a random rd of golf with.
    • Realistically the men have three advantages. 1) Length - Here I am assuming the men are bigger and stronger and all of you are playing off the same tees. 2) Strength - In a scenario where you are in deep rough, in a plugged bunker lie etc, where strength is an asset, like gouging out a ball. 3) Home course experience and knowledge - Yes, the ladies are members of the course, but they will probably play it a couple of times a year at best, whereas the men will probably be playing it 2 to 3 times a week. If the men are able to convert this properly, maybe the +2 golfer has a chance.  The scratch and 2 golfers will be out of their depth, and the +2 golfer will be struggling unless things go his way. I normally would have said not a hope in hell, especially against the Solheim Cup player, but the above give the +2 a glimmer of hope, though nowhere close to 50:50. More like 20:80.
    • Yep, agree.  But as mentioned in my previous post he chooses to play to his strengths.    We are veering way off course.  The intent of this thread was to provide a real-world experience of low cappers playing against established women professionals.  I have been around this game an awfully long time, had the luxury of playing against some Nike Tour players back in the mid 90's and some senior tour players in the early 2000's...both times I was throttled and left in awe of just how good those guys were/are.   However, this opportunity to play with the women was nothing short of extraordinary.  And I know many of you have often wondered how your game would fare against women professionals.....hopefully this thread will provide a little insight from multiple perspectives.
