Day 443:

Did some backswing/takeaway drills (COVID-19 day-3 and something I found on AMG YouTube). Then some COVID-19 day-5 drills. Then some full swing balls with 9-iron and 3-hybrid.

Day 9.  Spent a fifteen minute break earlier today hitting 8-iron and 6-iron full swings, off a mat, into a net, real balls, indoors.  Hit about as many balls, careful to make sure I am at practice pace.

Day 139: Long session today. Redid the PlaneMate protocols for full swing transition, downswing and impact, which are really close to the drills I’ve been doing. Then I worked on my drills with 6 iron and driver and filmed them.

Day 56 (Mar 03 2021) - Easy swings today with the 7i and PW working on maintaining a steady head and proper weight shift.  Very enjoyable moments of making good consistent contact.

Day 59 - Frustrating day of practice. A bunch of swings, slow and full speed, trying to open my hips enough during the backswing. Each time I seem to get it, something else seems to go wrong. Golf, gotta love it.

Day 430 - March 3, 2021

Played 18 holes at Lonnie Poole Golf Course (NC State's course). Played from 6950 even though we got NO roll. Raleigh isn't sandy like Pinehurst. 😄

Day 10.  Rain outside meant I couldn't do the speed sticks, so I had to make due with 8-iron and 6-irons, as per usual, off the mat, into the net, while indoors.  Two sessions of about half a dozen balls each (and about as many minutes each time).

Day 57 (Mar 04 2021) - More work on initial takeaway, using the drills from Day1 of the COVID-19 Practice plan.  Finished with chip shots in the backyard with real golf balls.

Day 11.  Today was a good day for practice.  I found half an hour in the afternoon to (slowly) hit balls (indoor, off a mat, into a net, real balls, 6- and 8-iron).  I also had time for Speed Sticks in the backyard.  I am encouraged by Green 112 mph on the final iteration.

Day 58 (Mar 05 2021) - 1-2-3 drill with putter this morning.  1 pace from cup - single ball, make it into the putting green cup and move to 2 paces out, now I have to make 2 balls in a row before moving to 3 paces out and of course 3 balls have to be made before I get to 4 paces which for my short stride is the limit of the green.  Focused on keeping head still and not "looking" - target point a spot on the mat about 18" in front of the ball.  Followed this up with going with 8 balls in a row from each position before moving to the next (why 8 - its all the "real" golf balls I have in the house, may scarf another 4 from the used ball pile in the shop to give an even dozen to work with).

Day 57 - putting in office for Speed control.  At 32ft, this is a huge improvement from the “old  pre-Blast, pre-putting pendulum trained me”

Makes me jealous that the hall at the house (which is where I work as well) is not fully carpeted as it is about the same length.  Then again - the hardwood floor can offer challenges when putting with the plastic ball - like putting on ice.....

yeah, this "carpet" runs around 11 in one direction and 10 in the opposite, so it's faster than most greens I play on, but I'm just working on the consistency of my motion so it works. It's definitely nice to have

    • I have a Cobra Baffler 4 hybrid in my bag, and that is one of my best clubs.  Enough loft to get the ball airborne and the T-rails underneath ensure I get decent contact in most lies.  Plus, a Cobra hybrid would probably go well with your Cobra irons

    • You don't get to lay in bed with murderous human rights abusers and then expect to get a favor from the very golf establishment you are trying to disrupt with said bed partner.
    • Meanwhile in NJ, it’s going to be 90° this weekend when I play. It’s 50° today. Weather is weird.
    • Keep that stuff away from Michigan!  We're wet enough in my area.
