Day 380 - January 13, 2021

Did some Mach 3 training today, and made some swings while waiting for a student this morning. Still has to feel very, very "out" even though, when paired with the turn, it's not out at all, really.

Day 3

Bigger Gold Flex work out today, core and bike as well.

Focus on irons was 60-60-100 } I have to get better with ball striking.  Used 6 iron for the drill and hit 30 balls.  

Focus on Driver was 60-50-100 hit 20 balls

Center contact consistency is improving, weight transition seams to be improving.

Also taped swing for the "Soft, Straight Trail Arm Challenge".  I hope to get the video up tonight

DAY 41  January 13th... I am squeaking in just under the wire!!  I was in meetings and doing project almost from when I got up at 6:30 until now.  BUT I did fit in 10 minutes of working on my backswing with my Impact Ball and shortened 5 iron.  It is becoming more and more obvious to me that I am not rotating enough on either my backswing or my through swing.  When I do I hit the ball so much better.  Work to do!!

Day 10 - More work with the irons in the backyard.  Focus on not swinging mindlessly but mindlessly swinging.  In other words, keeping swing thoughts to the minimum.  Finding that it helps to relax and let it flow through - almost (and I hate to use the word) effortless.  More time with body core stretching exercises - finding these are really helping with rotation.   It is true - focusing on a specific pays mega dividends.   Tomorrow - hopefully may get to work with the driver swing some.

DAY 42  January 14th.   Excellent three hours at the range today.  Started with the Super Speed Sticks and getting my data.  And it was nice to see my max swing speed it up - 6 mph!!  Then spent 2 hours working through the Motion Drills from the book, "Train for Golf Like an Olympian."   Just still need a lot of work on my swing... but getting better.

Finished with three 15 minute sessions of hitting just one club... 15 minutes with wedges to targets, 15 minutes of 3-woods off the deck and off a tee, and finished with 15 minutes of drivers.  My dispersion with the driver is looking better, I will have to do a little more work to determine that.  Just felt like I was on target... used my Full Pre-shot Routine for each driver and chose a target area down range.

Day 14 (of last 15) - Forgot to post yesterday, but worked on takeaway.  Today, again worked on takeaway with smart ball at 50% and 75% swings.  Added in the feel of starting the downswing with the lower left side of my body to create the feel of lag.

Day 93: Worked on my drill and added the Soft Right Arm Challenge feel to the drill. I was worried it would change the early extension improvement, but it didn’t. Then I did SuperSpeed training with these feels and hit new highs, 104 with the blue and 100 with the driver.

Day 5

Bigger Gold Flex Day, core, stretching

60/60/100 with Soft Straight Trail Arm - 5 Iron 35 balls

60/50/100 with Soft Straight Trail Arm - Driver 15 balls

Starting to feel positive results, more consistency but the drills need constant mental thought, not automatic yet but I do not feel they will for at least a month of work.  Very happy with how my grip work has progressed.

Utilized alignment stick throughout as well

    • Yeah, @iacas, here’s another article echoing the last one you posted: CDC Studies 'Breakthrough' COVID Cases Among People Already Vaccinated COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective but don't always provide perfect protection. Some...  
    • Lesson coming up on Thursday 4/15: After 5-6 weeks of really good ball striking (by my standards), full swing has regressed. After my last lesson, I had some backswing and transition weight/pressure shift feels that worked really well. I was hitting almost everything with center-face contact (within tolerance of a mid-handicap player), AoA and launch angles were all in the right window, ball was going where I aimed it, shot shape was reliable, distance improved. Then in my last round suddenly I had no idea where the ball was going to go. I have a little deal with myself, that if I can get my index below 10 and keep it there, I am getting fitted for a new driver, so I am a little miffed at what I experienced last round. I doubt there was a sudden change (maybe there was, who knows), but what I suspect is that there was some slower, less noticeable regression that was going on, that finally transitioned into a significant on course problem. Putting and short game are still good enough (nothing special), so that at least I am not losing any strokes with these elements. I've gone back to basics for now with practicing, and I don't want to over-self-diagnose any issues and use a shotgun approach to problem solving, so happy that I have a lesson this week to figure out what's gone wrong.
    • Day 483: Planned on filming my swing today, but it got too dark to get good exposure with slo-mo phone camera videos. Did some Covid-19 day-3, 4, 5 drills. Hit some balls with a 75% speed full swing, with lots of rehearsals between balls. Hitting the ball toward heel, launch angle a bit high, and start line not great. Something is awry at the moment, but I've got a lesson scheduled on Thursday so I'm not going to troubleshoot too much right now.
