Day 142: Arctic outside so I spend the morning constructing a version of @iacas Butt Board. I want to use it more for early extension work from one side. It’s only 3” deep from the other side, but I have some stock to add 1/2” for the set up work if needed. Used it for a few minutes.

I also did some repair work on my nets.

Day 12.  I had two five-minute practice sessions during work breaks today.  I was mostly checking that I could swing and hit a ball, given my arm (vaccine in arm yesterday).  Success!  Off a mat, into a net, real balls, 6- and 8-irons.

Day 59 (Mar 6 2021) - new drill for pitches in the backyard.  It’s called the saw horse drill....set up the sawhorse about 10’ in front of the hole....start pitches and/or chips anywhere from 10yds on out.  The goal is to land the ball in front of the sawhorse and get it to release and roll through the “gate” (sawhorse legs).  Pretty challenging to not let the ball recoil off the legs!

Day 13.  Played 18 holes today at my home course (although it's now about a 45 minute drive from me).  I shot a 96 (GG says 89;  I did not finish hole 17 and had to take net double bogey).  We played from the tips.  Why.  This is not a course I should be playing from those tees.  We made good time though.  Some highlights include three GIRs (plus on-in-three on a 462 yard "par 4", the last shot being a 42 yard pitch to  a back pin, so I'd argue that should be mentally thought of as a fourth GIR) and making a great 5 on the par-4 5th (I'm happy with a five there from any tees).

Day 447:

Forgot to post yesterday, but did COVID-19 day-3, -4, -5 drills, and superspeed workout.

Played 18 today. Short game was really good, with 8 up/downs. Was overdoing palmar flexion early, but settled into a happy middle ground after a few holes. Had a swing thought for backswing, touch lead shoulder to chin, to make myself do a full turn. Best ballstriking round in awhile, and broke 80.

Today’s strokes gained vs. tour player:

Day 60 (March 7 2021) - "long distance pitches/approach practice today (from the neighbor's yards ranging from 50 to around 75 yards out) with the 6i and 8i and the hard foam balls with the target being the sawhorse setup at the hole.  "Good" was landing within 10 yards, "Great" was landing within 5 yards and "Excellent was landing in front of the sawhorse and rolling the ball through the legs.  Not easy, by any means!  A fun way to practice proper backswing, downswing motions - also the lies were anywhere from tight grasses, to slight uphill, slight downhill....

Day 61 (Mar 08, 2021) - Today was "bounce" back Monday.  Got in the yard, temps in the 50's and worked the bounce of the 58 wedge.  Again using the sawhorses as the target zone.  Went two methods - pitching it short using the bounce to get the ball "near" and letting it roll through the leg gates, second - a little tougher - pitching it over the sawhorse but landing before the hole to roll in.  The horse is set about 6' out so there is room to land and roll.  Was a lot of fun and makes working the bounce a real challenge to get the proper flight.

Day 145: Worked on a new feel with my existing drill, pushing the left hip back while keeping the belly button pointing down. Did this with my BB and then without and filmed it. Making progress on the EE and rotation is better at impact.

Day 146: Range work today evaluating ball flight with ball position. Worked on my drill at the start and used those feels. I was letting my hands turn over through impact for a bit and that was causing hooks. Once I figured that out, flight got better and repeatable. I didn’t notice that tendency hitting into my net. I will focus on that next net session. 
 

The season is getting close. I hope to play next week.

    • I had a putt and it was windy that day with crusty fast greens. I had a 10 foot birdie putt and I lipped it out and had 8 inches left. I did not mark it. I walked up, took my time, and when I took the putter back and as I changed directions the ball moved at least 4 mm and I don't really know for sure whether I hit it while it was moving or not. I gave myself a penalty even thought he rule of the ball moving has changed. If I did not cause the ball to move there is no penalty and I did not cause this ball to move. But what is the rule if you actually hit the ball while it moves? Or even if it stopped moving and you hit it without placing the ball back in it's original spot. 
    • Day 94 (10 Apr 21) - Played 36 today, flew solo, so there was plenty opportunity to work with club selection, shot types...big focus was approach shots, esp from 150yds in. Worked on approach shot scenarios - based on distance out, and what club combo would work best.  Good day of field application of the LSR guiding principles....
    • Wow...matsuyama winning would be huge. 😒 He’s going to have a pull a Greg Norman to lose. 
    • A first for me as I played 36 today - flying solo (used a golf cart as my foot would not let me walk that far) so it was pretty quick playing. This was at the other local course that I will spend a lot of time at this year.  Rd 1 was an 88 (45/43, 7/14 fairways, 37 putts) - big takeaway, driver was consistent, putting okay - greens are still lumpy, bumpy, irons inconsistent). Rd 2 was a 93 (46/47, 10/14 fairways, 34 putts) complete with a birdie on 2. Putting was more consistent.  With the course’s greens in less than optimal shape, approaches bordered on serious pin hunting. Side note - played up one set of tees in 2nd rd - to see if there would be a significant score change.  Overall an enjoyable time of working through shot scenarios and seeing what worked and what didn’t.
