Day 414:

Warmed up a bit working on priority piece with 7-iron before doing a superspeed workout. Not a great superspeed session. Also need to find a drill of some sort to work on getting sternum more over the ball instead of hanging back, as the current feels aren't doing it for me.

Day 399 - February 1, 2021:

Putted in the hallway while waiting for the shower to dry. The door is much better now, and the new silicone caulk looks nice.

Day 2 - Same story as yesterday.  Started out with drills to focus on takeaway and forearm rotation.  Then moved into a few full swings.  Doing my best to stay focused during the full swing portion.

Day 29 - Backyard chipping and some full swings.  Started with the chipping, focusing on half-back swings through follow-thru.  Again working on rotating through the swing to clear the hips.  Using my 845Silver Scot 8i, I worked on distance control - i.e. placing each shot about yard past the previous.  Also did the reverse with the shots starting about 2 yards apart but ending up at the same target.  Finished up with some full swings with the harder foam balls (they will fly close to 100yds on a full driver swing), using the 7i of the same set - good flight with these balls as they were starting right and coming back around to the left.  Historically I have always been pretty much start right and go further right.  Tomorrow, weather dependent, may be able to get back outside and do some more with the irons.

Day 111: Shovel. Shovel some more. Shovel a bit more. Then after I stopped feeling like that old Knight in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, I did some chipping in the basement.

Day 401 - February 2, 2021

I got off by one day so I'm making the adjustment here. I spent 30+ minutes downtown after a lesson working on the whole backswing motion. I recorded an earlier swing (my swing topic) and then worked on making it a bit shorter. Right thumb a little longer and a bit more on top, a bit more "down" in the backswing… Overall, pretty good though. Happy. Going to start working on the A3-A5 stuff.

Day 32 - Pretty busy day, didn't get around to filming for Evolvr. I did have time for slow backswings and getting my weight forward, though 🙂

Day 415:

Did some work with the COVID-19 practice plan Day-5 drill. I think this one might help me cover the ball more. I struggle with this drill for some reason, so I'm going to be working on it a lot.

Day 30 - Work with the wedges (PW & GW) on 15 - 25 yard chip shots.  Created a new game called "fill the gap" - 1st shot at the longer distance around 25 yds, the 2nd shot around 20yds - then the remaining 3 shots had to "fill the gap".  1pt for every shot in the gap  (and online +/1yd either way), -1pt for short and -2 for long.  As I was using just 3 balls for scoring max points per session was 3.  I averaged 2 pts per round as I invariably would have one come up short.  Also worked on the ladder drill as noted in LSR.  Did okay, but could not consistently stack the ladder.  Good thing was the sunshine and my shadow - could use it to look at form in the address.

Day 402 - February 3, 2021

Good hour or so hitting about 50 balls. Didn't record anything, but strikes were solid even when easy, and swings were better lengths.

Day 416:

More COVID-19 day-5 drill. Seeing some improvement today after watching the video again. I think my pump of a couple inches was much too big, so once this was shortened contact improved.

After that I did some full swing warmup with 7-iron, and then a superspeed workout.

    • I’ve had my Leupold GX-2 since 2010. Don’t remember the price, but perhaps around $200-300. Not a big investment if divided per year or round. I’ve spent way more on balls. It’s not a replacement for the course guide, which I always want to carry if they got one. The rangefinder is a distance measuring tool and doesn’t show the layout of a hole. Many courses around here doesn’t have much in ways of markers. Typically 200, 150 and 100 meters. So the on-course aid hasn’t been affected by the tools. I used to have to study the guide, look for one of those three markers and try to walk off and guesstimate distances. Now I can focus on my approach, where to aim and quickly get the distances I need. I play faster and better with it.
    • 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.
