Day 441:

Played 18 today. Not a good day, necking the ball almost every swing, and a few shanks mixed in. Need to get some video to see what has changed. Been hitting the ball off the center during all my practice sessions. I did add a birdie to the TST 2021 birdie challenge at least.

Day 54 (Feb 28 2021) - full swings with the 7i in the backyard (limited flight foam balls) along with some chips.   Short and sweet practice as day was busy with a ton of other things to be done.

Day 11!

After dinner,  

1. Backswing work A1 to A2 feeling the weight shift to my right foot. Did ball drill, pushing the ball back after weight shift. 
2. Make backswing with left wrist facing away from me. Feels facing down at the ground from A1 to A2.

Day 56 - Reviewed some video of my recent swings, still not getting enough hip turn in the backswing. So I took some swing with an alignment rod through my belt loops, really getting as open as I can.

Day 7.  Spent ten minutes hitting about as many balls with a 6-iron.  Indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls.  Even though my ball striking is pretty good lately, I don't want to let it falter.

Day 137: Rainy day so I went to the covered range. I hit what appeared to be replicas of asteroids from the Kuiper Belt. There were mostly spherical or oblong and had marks from recent meter hits. The really didn’t resemble golf balls which is unfortunate because that is what I wanted to hit. Needless to say I worked mostly on my drill and aim. Short irons and wedges weren’t affected by the out of round balls as much as the driver.

Day 53 - range day. Working on straighter right elbow off the side early in BS. I haven’t hit this well in a LONG time. It was nice. Actually enjoyed it unlike last couple of range trips

Day 428 - March 1, 2021

Hit balls for about 45 minutes (and talked for about 30 minutes) this morning. I simplified and shortened. Liked what I was able to do.

Day 442:

Seems like the little strain around the left side of my collarbone is gone, so started superspeed again today. First I warmed up by alternating 30 balls of COVID-19 day-5 drill and full swings with a 6-iron. Then did superspeed workout, followed by about 15 balls with Driver/Mevo.

Day 8.  Spent ten minutes hitting 8-iron and 6-iron indoors, off a mat, into a net.  Took about as many minutes.  Then, I wandered out back to do Speed Sticks.  I haven't read the rules of that encouragement role, but I should:  my last time (before a few minutes ago) using speed sticks, or at least measuring it, was October 25.

Day 55 (Mar 02 2021) took yesterday off - went back to Day 3 of the 30 Day Covid-19 plan.  Know I still keep trying to collapse the trail arm - this is a good revisit to the drills from last April.

    • Too bad we lost Ned Beatty. He would’ve been good.
    • Jonah Hill would be my pick. 
    • We are entitled to nothing from Tiger and that is what we will get. Tiger's branding is strong and a non-statement is probably his best strategy.  As taxpayers, we are entitled to whatever accident reports and investigations were done by the public agency under the public records laws of California.

    • LIBERTY CORNER, N.J. and ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (Dec. 1, 2021) – Golf’s governing bodies have made available a Model Local Rule (MLR) to further limit the use of Green-Reading Materials.  MLR G-11 enables a committee to limit players to using only the yardage book that it has approved for use in the competition.  This local rule is intended only for the highest levels of competitive golf and, even then, only for competitions where it is realistic for the committee to undertake an approval process for yardage books. It will be available starting January 1, 2022. The local rule gives a committee the ability to establish an officially approved yardage book for a competition so that the diagrams of putting greens show only minimal detail (such as significant slopes, tiers or false edges that indicate sections of greens). In addition, the local rule limits the handwritten notes that players and caddies are allowed to add to the approved yardage book.  The purpose behind the local rule is to ensure that players and caddies use only their eyes and feel to help them read the line of play on the putting green.  The USGA and The R&A developed MLR G-11 in response to feedback from several professional tours. The MLR, along with question-and-answer guidance, can be found here. As the local rule should only be adopted at the highest levels of competitive golf, all other golfers will continue to be able to use green-reading tools so long as they meet the requirements established in 2019. For more information on the current rule, see usga.org/grm.
