DAY 56  January 26   I got out to the range in the afternoon for almost three hours.  I worked on a single thing for almost the entire time.  I worked on improving my left wrist position at impact.  I have a tendency to be a flipper... and this has hurt my consistency.  So today all about the left wrist position.  To make it more random, and engage my brain, I varied the clubs from 3 wood, to 5 iron to 7 iron to pitching wedge.   Then I hit a dozen drives and just bombed them -- for me!!! LOL!!

Day 25 - Back to full swing work in the yard today - even on the frozen ground.  Irons skate really good on frozen grass/turf.   Focus today  - foot work, specifically stance width.  Played around with narrowing the stance on the irons, I believe I have been having too wide a stance and that has inhibited the body rotation.  Finding that just narrowing it by 3 inches or so makes all the difference.  Want to work on that more - so maybe that will be the Saturday exercise.  Overall - shot trajectory was much more consistent.  Seeing positives by making small adjustments with each session.

Day 28 - Been working on one of the Key #2 drills, it really seems to be helping. Let's me really focus on both my backswing and getting my weight forward. Here's the drill:

Day 5

Halted my Gold Flex work out.  Need to listen to the body, getting joint pain.  My right knee was flaring up.

I did Day 22 of the Covid challenge.  Really needed this drill to get things squared away with set up.

Once I finished doing those drills I used my 8 iron and started with small short swings keeping Day 22 in mind.  Worked up 1/4 then 1/2 then 3/4 and finally finished with 5 full swings.  Also kept in mind getting wide on back swing.

Very happy with center face contact.  Yesterday I was either center or toe contact.  Today, center thru all, well except the very first ball that I missed the net and lost the ball somewhere in my warehouse, uffda.

Great day, set up fixed, center contact where it should be, ball was going down line excellent.  

Just really happy - great 40 minute practice session

DAY 57  January 29th.   Went to the range when the temperature got up to 64!  Yes I am a "weather whimp!"  Spent 2 1/2 hours working through drills again from the book, "How to Train For Golf Like An Olympian."  As I was working through these drills I was focus on better impact position with my left wrist getting into a better position.  When I do this, I feel like I can hit the ball as hard and fast as possible using the energy from my right arm extending.  Also did lots of swings with the Gold Flex, dynamic stretches, ...

Day 396 - January 29, 2021

Full swing work before a lesson, and after I kicked a guy out of the hitting area. 😄 (Not really.) I wish I had more time today, but it was going well. It still feels SO FAR out and away from me.

Day 411:

Tried to find some feels/thoughts for covering the ball better. Tried some different things hitting half shots with 7-iron and then some hybrid. Yard is a little too muddy for setting up tripod, but it’s supposed to dry up a bit over the weekend and next week so might be able to get some video to check on this one.

    • I can relate, but like yourself, I like the challenge of achievement.   I have a great opportunity for a miracle!  wait... I need a miracle or something like that!
    • I will not put a white belt on my clubs!   A couple of the guys I play with on the weekend purchased new clubs and bought club covers.. ugh.   
    • Yeah, no. I’m giving you a 4/10 on the Golf Swing Guru Crackpot Scale. You lost points for: No visual aids. Like, at all. No citing a YouTube video claiming this swing shows off what you are talking about. No mystical looking 1990-style website. No avatar of some part of the body or a golf swing. You gained points for: Suggesting that you alone know the truth or facts at play here. Misusing big words you clearly don’t understand. Citing Ben Hogan. Try harder next time. You can do it!
    • I saw a guy do this the other day with his 6 and 7 iron and both clubs landed within 5 feet of each other. I told him that he shouldn't get so angry but to check his lofts as he obviously had a gapping issue!  🤣
