Day 71 (18 Mar 2021) - more work with the 58* wedge  and pitches from 5 - 25 yards (the limit of the backyard).  Continued work on getting the bounce happening to get the ball up and down and near the target.  Pretty good success today - only took about 40 swings and only two shanks.  Good thing - I knew it as soon as impact happened - totally different feel/sound.

Day 155: Played 18 again today. Scored really well even though I was pulling some shots. Had two birdies. Also had this lie on 9 after my drive.

My approach was short, but made par with a nice up and down. Also parred my nemesis hole finally.

Day 458:

Raining today, with no letup in the forecast until tomorrow morning, so nothing outdoors today. No full swing or superspeed. Did some feel drills indoors with a wedge to work on palmar flexion and recentering/flow. Also did some indoor putting on a yardstick.

Rain again, staying inside. 

About 20min of short game / impact drills.  Hitting and working on the feeling of timing the hands, arms, and body rotations.

Day 68 - spent 30 mins on Blast putting for rhythm and bead. I am playing tomorrow afternoon. @iacas, is it illegal for me to use my Blast device on the course in competition since it may fall into the category of heart rate monitors providing feedback?

Day 72 (19 Mar 2021) - more inside work as the rain fell.  Chipping work with the 7i and whiffle balls.  Not a lot of excitement in this, just working on undoing some bad mechanics of fileting the face open on takeaway. As I was hitting down the hall, which is 48" wide, my goal was to flight it part of the way (its about 35' long) and getting the ball to bounce and roll out nicely.

Day 459:

Planned to do superspeed today, but 2nd vaccine dose side effects set in hard around midday and zonked me out. I was able to overcome fatigue and headache to do some COVID-19 day-3, 4, 5 drills, and also some flow/recentering mirror rehearsal.

Day 446 - March 19, 2021

An hour of the same thing as yesterday: transition work to miss the noodle, and yet somehow the ball comes out straight! 🙂

Day 26.  Despite it being a busy day, I found a few five minute intervals to hit 7-iron shots (indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls) for some continued practice.

Day 157: Worked on partial and full irons swings. Contact has felt a bit thin this week. I did the dry erase test and found I was hitting toward the toe. So I made some adjustments. Also film the swings and worked on opening the face more at set up.

    • It seems it would be difficult to get the ball to stop on the green. Bump and run can be judged. But let’s say a 150-170yd…it’d be hard to hurl the ball far enough to get there but with a high enough trajectory to stay on the green. Seems like every shot outside 100yds would have to be a bump and run.
    • For those who have tried golf a few times and find it too frustrating(like my wife), I can see where this might be fun for some. Consider me open minded. But that is coming from a snow boarder and someone who also enjoys disc golf as well.  🙂
    • They probably have to pay the same rates so it won’t hurt the course in that aspect.
    • All evidence wold indicate that Tiger has put it in many, many more holes than Jack.   But seriously, Tiger was much better at scrambling and making stunning recovery shots than Jack. But Jack didn't seem to find trouble as often as Tiger.
    • They say it’s been allowed on some courses. I just can’t imagine too many letting these guys crowd the tee times. Maybe a course that’s hurting for business? And I assume you charge the same green fee rate? Dress codes? Yeah….I dunno….not too big on this one.
