Day 47 (Feb 21 2021) - Easy day of pitches with the 58 and 50.  Work focused on dropping the club through the swing to feel the bounce.

Day 434:

Intended on doing a superspeed workout, but a minor strain in something around the left side of my collarbone that flared up a bit, so just did some Covid-19 day-3 backswing drills, and then hit some 50% speed (feel) shots with 7-iron, focus on recentering/flow.

Day 420 - February 21, 2021

Pot Day! Long day downtown, 7:30am to 5:00pm, but a good day. Got a lot of strain on the ol' Whoop. Got some practice in briefly, namely pitching practice. I hit a pretty incredible flop shot with the toe down, almost over my head.

Day 1.  Played today, if we can call it that.  Actually I played well, not counting putts, which is my preferred scoring method but isn't actually allowed.  But for real, I putted horribly.  No, really, 12+ strokes lost putting.  I hit 8 GIR + 5 near + another green with a full swing to set up a par attempt and didn't break 90.  Like, this was bad putting even by my standards.

After dinner, I went to a nearby course that has a lit practice area and putted for 30 minutes.  No drills (this putting green, at least tonight, didn't seem set up for that) but got some decent practice in.  Going to have to be a nightly thing for the next week before a fourball match on Saturday.

Day 48 (Feb 22 2021) - worked on Shoulder Pitch drill from Day 2 of the 30 day Challenge last year....while I did not video it, I was in front of the mirror.  Seeing much better on plane shoulder rotation than from a year ago.  Good to revisit these drills in the dead of winter.....

Day 47 - despite playing relatively well a couple of weeks ago for my first time out this year, on the range that day Prior to the round, I was “drawing” everything 20yds left. I felt like I had an abnormally strong grip, and so I weakened it for the round and, again, played relatively well. 
 But I’m struggling with my grip still. Nothing seems comfortable. So I worked on it today going back to the basics.

Day 421 - February 22, 2021

Fifteen minutes before lessons working on some things. I was swinging back a bit too far, in trying to get height, I got too much. Good session in the end, that started out badly and needed a good thought to right the ship.

Day 435:

Still have some soreness from the strain around the left hand side of my collarbone, so no superspeed or full swing stuff today. I did some COVID-19 day-5 and day-3 drills, and then a little bit of indoor putting (yardstick).

Day 2.  Before dinner, I spent ten minutes in my golf room hitting 6-iron shots;  some full grip, some flight grip.  About a shot a minute.  After dinner, I went to a nearby course with a night-lit putting green and putted for 45 minutes.  The cups were cut about 2-3' from the edge of the green, so I couldn't do an around-the-world drill, but I did plenty of different directions and distances.

    • Not all bunker shots are played the same, pending sand condition, the lie in the bunker (uphill, level or downslope) Most bunker shots played from the level area, I splash the ball out with a solid thump of the sole of the club. Uphill, it's more about hitting behind the ball a certain amount to create a cushion of sand between the ball and club face. Are you thinning the shots, or hittting them fat or something else? 
    • Yes, my comment was meant to be a compliment to the title "Stay Inquisitive and Keep Learning" The podcast was very good, I like the how you and Jason touch base on many topics which golfers are seldom aware of with what the teaching pro's considers when working with students. I added my opinion with trusting the swing, something that is seldon a thought.
    • There's a ton more to it than that. You're probably flipping and adding too much loft to the club. Have you been fit for clubs?
    • Nah. The damaged area appears to be from divots. And most of those aren’t in the depression. Play it. Your white paint budget must be much higher than mine.
    • If that is fairway and not light rough the damaged areas should be marked and deemed GUR. But not otherwise.
