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 51 - Struggled today extending my trail leg in the backswing, so slow swings focusing on that.

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.

    • Day 505: Worked on backswing stuff, and added in some “Justin Rose” rehearsals. Hit foam balls at slow speeds.

    • I know this is off topic but wanted folk to know that if they install the 14.5 update it's important that they now get the 14.5.1 update which fixes some security issues with the 14.5 update: Apple releases critical iOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1 security updates The iOS and iPadOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1, and watchOS 7.4.1 updates contain security patches along with an App Tracking Transparency fix. Thanks.  
    • I think you’re on the right track with this. You don’t want to lift the heel just for the sake of lifting it, but you also don’t want to forcibly keep it down, either. Some people can make a good turn without lifting the lead heel and some can’t. The heel itself is not the important part.
    • I find, as an old geezer just a bit away from the edge of the mortality table, that lifting the lead heel and letting my lead knee point towards or even slightly behind the ball, gives me a bit more rotation and the act of replanting it improves my pressure shift to the lead foot. My handicap is slowing creeping downwards so it seems to be working for me or, at least, it FEELS like it's working...  😈
