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.

    • Agree about the 913D3 and D2. 915 and 917 were better, and the TSi2 is way better. 
    • Showing and proving are two different things. This wasn’t a properly designed experiment. Sample size is small and not randomized. It may work for you, but having a properly fit putter could work just as well.

    • I think from the OP all players felt it was in the PA or the opponents would not have pushed for S&D. The question I am struggling with is making a "Reasonable Judgement" on where the ball crossed into the PA to identify where to drop.  In the OP photo the red line (possible path 1) crosses into the PA just a little past the 1st bunker (Not where the red line ends, more like half-way along the red line) and the white line (possible path 2) enters the PA past the 2nd bunker.  It's hard to tell from the diagram but is the difference between the 2 points 30-40-50 yards?  The greater the distance between the two potential areas the less likely to make a "Reasonable Judgement" of where it entered and where to drop.  I understand that without TV Cameras and Forecaddies none of know exactly where our ball may have crossed, we pick a tree, bush or other landmark and use that, but at what point does it become impossible to make a "Reasonable Judgement".  Also, I understand the problem with the word "Reasonable" but that is what I see in Rule 1.3 per below. https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=pe&section=rule&rulenum=1   Adding on, even in the OP they said it would be guess where it went out.
    • The AMC guys think (and show) the arm lock produces a more consistent stroke: My putting is so bad these days that I'll probably go try one.
