Day 407 - February 8, 2021

Pressed the reset button a little. Right elbow work. Getting it high, high, high early. About 30 balls, maybe 40. Good session, though, considering.

Day 35 - step drills outside with full swings and foam balls, working to get the ball consistently going right to left. Focus on the weight shift on the step and getting  the hips to clear. By end of drills ball flight was moving hard starting right and coming back left.

Day 421:

Did some COVID-19 day-5 drills, which I really like. Not 100% sure if it is helping my priority piece, but the better I get at the drill, the better my ball striking gets, and since it doesn't seem to be hurting anything, I'm going to continue with this one. After that, did some full swing warm-up with a 7-iron, and then superspeed workout.

DAY 68  February 9th  Seems like I just posted this yesterday, and the day before!!!  I excited about tomorrow since I will be able to go back out on the range!!  Weather will be fantastic -- high of 80!! 

So with my limited time available.  Continued to do a Mike Bender drill that focuses on rotating and not swaying as you work your way through the downswing.  Using my home office wall instead of the famous Mike Bender Green Wall.

Day 408 - February 9, 2021

Fought with the dishwasher (it won the battle but will not win the war) today, so I just rehearsed some things in the mirror at my house.

Day 422:

Started with some COVID-19 day-5 drills, and then some full swings with 7- and 5-iron. Got a chance to film before it got too dark, but didn’t see much improvement, and in some swings seemed to be hanging back worse.  Went back through some old lesson notes and found some stuff about centered hip turn, and having more “quiet” hip movement along the target line during backswing/downswing. Hit a few more balls and it felt improved and launch angle was definitely lower, but too dark to get any decent video to confirm.

Day 36 (Feb 09 2021) - More full swing drills working on making solid ball contact.  Used the small practice mat to help with over the top.  I know that if I come over the top, I will "nail" the small bad and send it about 18" forward.  Started with half swings, focusing on impacting the ball then the mat.  Also purposing the weight shift to the front foot - still a long way to go there (as my body wants to protect it from any pain).  Used what I was "feeling" on the mat to the grass as I would hit the foam balls back to the mat focusing on the thought process "smooth, steady, swings".  

Somehow I failed to submit this yesterday - found in my "drafts".....

Day 37 (Feb 10 2021) - (NOTE: Today is day 8 of the self-imposed quarantine due to the missus testing positive for Covid).  Double gate drills in the backyard again using the grandson's play goalposts as the downrange target and tees.  I really like the visuals this offers! (Note: Pic below is from November - grass much greener then!)  First few swings were 1/4 to 1/2 swings at slow and steady to get loosened up.  Had a couple of chunks where I was "trying" too hard to go thru the gates.  Adjusted the "mental" by counting back to myself "smoooth and steaaaadddy" ( almost a 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 type cadence).  It is amazing how easily the club (7i) flowed through the tee gates and the ball starting just right of the goal posts and coming back to the center.  Not all shots were that pretty but it is rapidly becoming good muscle memory.  Maybe its time to video the swing again.....

DAY 69 February 10th   The Covid 19 second vaccine shot has kicked my butt!!  Real tired today, but still got out for a little over two hours, working my hip rotation and thoracic spine rotation, during the downswing.  Making some progress, hit lots of shots that match the swing pattern I am working on.  Now time for a nap!!!

Day 119: In the morning after shoveling, worked on chipping aim with 12 foot chips. Made it harder by setting up the Blast Motion box and chipping over that avoiding nailing Brad Faxon in the face. After lunch, worked on my priority piece then did SuperSpeed. All this shoveling is making me tired. Only hit 102. And it’s cold and will be for another week.

Day 423:

Did a little bit of COVID-19 day-5 drills, maybe 15 balls or so. Warmed up hitting some 7-iron and hybrid, and then did a superspeed workout. Later I did some swing mapping.

    • Really?  Knowing the name of the caddy would spoil the podcast for you?
    • Day 1: Aftermath of wife's company end of year celebration on Tuesday put my plans on hold, so trying again, again, again or whatever. Worked on backswing - focus on width and depth, with a little bit of toe-up feel. Did this indoors because it's starting to rain, used mirror vision to check on things (need to do this more often/always).
    • Played the back nine again at Minnesott with my son and my friend who’s working back from nerve injury to his right hand (numb little and ring fingers).  He’s contemplating larger grips so we brought a couple irons - one midsize, one jumbo.  He hit a few with each and said he could feel the clubs in his right hand better.  He’s going to work with a fitter about the best grip for him.  How did the round go?  It was a bogie kind of day - one dbl, two pars and six bogies for a 44.  Hit 5 of 7 fairways, the drives were finding the short grass today.  Not quite the same on the par threes, caught the tee shot with heavy 9i on 12 to nearly pin high, but right of the green. Pitched the 58 over the bunker as the pin was tucked tight.  Two putted for bogie.  The other three, 14 was a 6i flushed that landed ball at the back of the green and bounced just off.  Bumped the 50 to get the ball close - not close enough for a one putt par, but rather a two putt bogie.  While it wasn’t the up and down saves for par, felt the overall game was consistent today.  Best highlight was that there were only 18 putts - no three putts today!  
    • Day 23 (08 Dec 22) - Played the back nine today at Minnesott with my son and my friend who recently moved back to the area.  Drill work is paying off as I continue to see more consistent shot results. 
    • I didn't know the gaps were going to be that big when I ordered the kit. The installation instructions as far as mounting them were pretty lacking, I'll do some more research and see if I can find how others have mounted it but I'm not sure how much closer I can get them to each other based on how big the brackets are and how far the brackets/motors stick out from the ends of each tube.   Edit: I did just realize I could make the side screens roll up on the insides rather than the outside like they do now which should help close the gaps some
