Day 132: Went to the range for a change to work on my priority piece and see ball flight. Slipped into the bad habit of just hitting in the middle of the session, but then recovered. The balls were those awful floating type that were really beat down. Not much to gain on distance, but start direction helped.

Day 49 (Feb 23 2021) - Got to go to the course today to play.  Worked on course management, primarily where did I want to hit the approach shot into the green from on the 4's and 5's, in essence working from green back to the fairway.   Have to say it is much more comfortable hitting a shot you really like into the green as opposed to one at an awkward distance.

Day 422 - February 23, 2021

Today was a long day. Spent two hours downtown practicing. About 20 minutes of that was putting. Now, I don't hit a lot of balls, but there's a lot of work, a lot of rehearsals, etc. I started out with a 9I and things weren't good. I got them better by re-focusing on the just lifting of the arms, soft right arm, and then using the arms a bit more to start down instead of the body. Finished with some 6I that were pretty good.

Got the Live View Pro today, so I'm really looking forward to using that so I don't have to completely disrupt everything to look back in the mirror, AND so I can see how long my swing was right after I hit it, without having to trim or go back and record, etc.

Day 436:

Did COVID-19 day-5 drills, and then some 75% speed full swings with 7-iron working on recentering/flow. Also did COVID-19 day-3 left hand reach drill as a rehearsal before each full swing.

This is the camera that is similar to what Mirrorvision app does right? Will you be posting any comments/review on TST at some point? I was looking into it before I got the Mirrorvision app. Would be interested to hear your opinion on its value.

A review, yes.

Day 3.  For 45 minutes tonight, I worked on putting on a real putting green.  One of the cups was about 5' from the edge of the green, so I was able to do an around-the-clock drill from 4', and it only took me 19 putts to do.  Either I got better in a hurry or it was an easy hole location.

Day 423 - February 24, 2021

Good long two+ hour session today. Focused on making the right sized backswing - not too small, not too long. Arms lift up in front of me, but not very far. I hit some 8I, then some 6I. I finished up with a 3I and really tried to feel that my setup was not getting too far forward.

Day 50 (Feb 24 2021)- Work on full swings with irons and driver(s) in the yard (temps in the 60's today) and hard foam balls (getting 70-80yds flight).   Working on maintaining steady grip pressure and flow through the downswing - I tend to get too rushed.  Noticed better ball flight by simply humming a steady note through the swing - to resist the grunt reflex.  Made me think of my friend who is always humming "Roxanne" by the Police when he plays.

    • Day 1 - after playing 9 holes yesterday (first time holding a club in a while), I hit a few balls into the backyard net focusing on PP or straighter right elbow
    • I got Moderna boostered today! Yaaaay! Now I’m bulletproof…
    • Went to see Dune today.  As a fan of the original book series, I liked this movie a lot. I thought they kept the same pacing, and the important parts from the book. There was a few specific details that were lost, and rushed. I understand the direction they took, being this has to be a 2.5 hour movie that covers the first half of the first book (if I remember correctly). I like the grand scale of the movie, and how they introduced all the major players in the story and did some good world building. Being that, the movie for some could drag a bit. It is not the fast pacing style of movie you tend to see today. For me, I give it a tap in Birdie. I could totally understand some people who might not like this movie at all. Dune is one of my favorite books of all time. I just think the story and characters are really good. I felt like they got a great cast for the movie. Modern special effects really help the world building.
    • Actually not today but last week but my first ever competition. I was good off the tee, not so good off the deck. Putted ok (for me) and played relatively smart. Shot big numbers overall but net 33 points on stableford and finished second in my class. Got paired up with the club champion (plays off +2) and another low handicapper (4) so I was super nervous 😬 but they were so encouraging and patient that I actually managed to relax and play better stuff on the back nine. Really super positive experience. Tommorow I play in the annual club closing tournament: a 1-3 club (depending on handicap… I get 3) team scramble over a cross country course (in vintage golf dress 🎩). Not sure what to put in my bag for this one … I an thinking 4 hybrid (24 degrees), pw and putter but open to advice….
    • Want to sell a like brand new Ping G425 Max 3 wood (14.5 deg).  Seem limited use and the wear reflects that.  One tiny scratch on the bottom of the club but other wise it is mint.  I have a standard Ping headcover and a custom Ping leather headcover I will include with it.  It will have the captured screw with it.  I can include a Ping wrench if you need it.  No trades please. Asking $215 shipped.  PM if interested
