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.

    • I saw a guy do this the other day with his 6 and 7 iron and both clubs landed within 5 feet of each other. I told him that he shouldn't get so angry but to check his lofts as he obviously had a gapping issue!  🤣
    • Traditional rating measurements show a decrease in viewership, but imho, the streaming options are pretty good and probably took away viewing via cable. Anecdotal, but the comments section also complimenting the live streaming on the site. 2021 Masters Ratings: 5.52, 9.45 Million Average Audience For CBS — Geoff Shackelford  
    • You’re probably right; people who speak in absolutes & hyperbole as well as people who feel the need to defend their expertise (in leu of letting their statements speak for themselves) tend to avoid admitting mistakes as the first group isn’t interested in actual numbers/facts and the second group is more concerned about how others perceive them. But I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt for now
    • I figure I should talk about my workouts somewhere other than a Google sheet.  I set up a rack in my garage a few weeks ago and have been using it MWF mornings before work.  Today I did 140 lbs squats, 125 lb bench press, and 205 lb deadlift, plus warm-ups for each.  I don't plan to advance mine as quickly as I did when I was getting back, but rather focusing on being comfortable with them.  I'm sure Rippetoe would disapprove, but I also don't eat enough (or I don't eat the right things?) to advance as quickly as some people do in his program (I'm also not as young as some people who go through Starting Strength).  About ten years ago I had a period of about a year where I was at the gym every other day and got some good numbers going then.  😕 
    • I agree. This season felt choppy, at best. Verstappen, the number 2 driver in F1, had about 30 seconds of total air time the entire season. They waited until the last 5 minutes of the series to let Hamilton speak on the big social justice issues going on.  The "Man on Fire" episode was pretty good, but even then they kept jumping from the crash to a different story in the same episode. Very bizarre.
