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 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.

    • It’s been 3 years since I posted a swing video but this offseason I am planning on doing a lot of work on my swing (I’ll be taking lessons every 3 weeks for 4-5 months). I just had my first lesson and we are working on shallowing out my swing, neutralizing my grip and getting me to stand closer to the ball. The first video linked here is my swing at the beginning of the season (showcasing my steep over the top move) and the second video is my swing today 10/21 about two weeks after my first lesson. I am currently a 15 handicap. I shot 12 over twice this year and one time shot 9 over. 8 iron in both videos.  
    • When I watch FO swings on my V1 app from various pros, they all seem to be similar those positions regarding club face. I don’t know if doing anything with this is beneficial but rather correcting body movements to create this ?    I believe it’s something that’s supposed to happen but many amateurs try to force it. Usually it’s another mechanic that’s faulty but they try to manipulate the forearms/wrists to release. Don’t know numbers but videos I just watched all have very close to 60*/120* to me.
    • I’m really curious to see vaccination rates in that young demographic and how that plays out since the risks are so low.  
    • -60-120 sounds like a lot but I have no idea how it compares.     -I would think it benefits face control to reduce it.  Or maybe the shallow the shaft/sasho stuff making it easier to close is relevant to discussion but either way that amount of closure happens? -I think it happens.      -my guess is others have less with more body rotation.  But it’s a straight up guess.  
    • My guess is they may have you specify that you're using the Titleist ball, but it will be better with the FlightScope too.
