Day 124 (10 May 21) - more backyard golf with the grandson today.  He loves to chip with hard balls - so we did a series of bump and run drills.  For me more work on keeping the ball centered on the clubface and then landing it where I "saw" it land.  When struck heavy, knew it immediately.  Clean strikes totally effortless and ball landed close to where I envisioned it.  More work here as I lose too many strokes greenside.

Day 210: Range work today. Focused on keeping primary axis tilt through impact to reduce EE. Range was wet so a lot of splatter shots. Finished with some short game work.

Day 77.  More wall drill, mostly with the wall and not with the club in my hand.    At one break I did grab a club and practice a slow backswing that felt like what I'm doing with the wall drill.

Day 510:

Did some weight/pressure shot drills in my office at work without a club. Did more takeaway/backswing work at home, and hit some foam balls at slow speed incorporating backswing and weight/pressure shift elements.

Day 211: Range again today. Playing the next three days. Worked a bit on my EE with various clubs, then on alignment. My irons are drawing more than I would like and I’m having trouble aligning right. I get all turned around with ropes going one way and station separators going another. I guess I’m a bit OCD with respect to lines.

With driver, I’m having to play the ball far forward to get the ball flight I want, basically at my middle toe. My instructor is OK with this. For my other clubs, I basically have the ball at my left heel and just widen my stance.

Finished with sand and short game work.

Day 37 (5/11/21) - Spent about two hours at the range. First I hit a medium sized bucket (about 70 balls) using the "Justin Rose Drill" (thanks again Darkfrog) and hitting only my 7i, 6H or Driver. Started with slow swings chipping the ball then worked up to slightly faster swings with more of a partial swing. When I got out of sync, it was back to the chips. 

Then played 9 holes of "Pull back" on the putting green, shooting a 22.

Day 125 (11 May 21) - Worked on staying in the swing today with full swings using the hybrid and fairway.   Wanted to work on getting the ball airborne without slices/dices/tops/flops.....Actually I worked from top of backswing through finish, taking time between swings to analyze what was good and not so good.  To close it out, took some swings with the 5i as well.  All from the comfort of my backyard, my neighbor's yard and hard foam golf balls.

Day 511:

Did some recentering/flow practice without a club. Worked a bit on speeding up takeaway/backswing but making sure not to speed up and cheat turn. Hit foam balls at slow speed and full speed.

Day 78.  I know I sound like a broken mp3 saying this, but wall drill.  I'm really getting used to making my chest feel like it's facing down and back, and it's feeling more normal (which either means I'm doing it consistently or I've regressed;  I need to take that video to find out)

Day 126 (12 May 21) - rain today so nothing outside.  Mirror work focusing on getting hips clear to complete the turn.  Worked face on as well as down the line in terms of mirror watching.  Also played around with stance in terms of flaring feet and getting to a good "weight forward" ending position my trans-metted left foot can handle.  I will say this much - compared to videos from last April during the 30 day challenge, I am seeing better rotation.

Day 38 (5/12/21) - Did the "Justin Rose Drill" without a ball, about 10-reps each with Driver, 7i and 9w. Then did the "Forehead on Wall" drill for several reps to work on steady head.

Day 79.  Got video today, I have to process to upload to evolvr.  I did a wall drill on video and also did an attempt at a slow swing with a 6-iron on video;  did some practice with each prior to filming.

Day 512:

Did the same takeaway/ backswing priority piece work, recentering / flow work, and some Justin Rose drills. Then hit foam balls with driver to work on concepts with a longer club.

Day 39 (5/13/21) - More "Forehead on Wall" drill for several reps to work on steady head, then "Justin Rose" drills (in my yard) with a whiffle ball.  About 10 reps with my 7-iron followed by 15 or so with Driver. I worked out what should be a pretty good pre-shot routine, at least for now, incorporating the drill, which I found helped my tempo too. 

I will be doing the "Justin Rose" drill for a while as I find it really helps several aspects of my swing.

Day 127 (13 May 21)- chip and putt drills with the grandson in the backyard.  Good work on gauging landing and rollout.  Finish with putts across some lumpy, bumpy turf.  Grandson loves as it closely replicates work onto and on the greens.  He often calls how we are to play - around the tree, over the pretend water, across the fire pit...

Day 513:

Did some recentering/flow drills without a ball, and then hit some foam balls in sets of 3, with lots of rehearsals between shots.

Went inside and setup Live View Pro camera, and did some digital mirror work focusing on keeping backswing on plane, and then some transition rehearsals working on starting things on plane in the downswing. I really like this digital mirror, probably should set it up more than 1-2X a week.

    • 1. So people who fail out, have to pay loans back, but if you graduate then your loan should be forgiven? I don’t see why banks would ever give loans out then. With that logic, I would think college would become less accessible not more accessible.    2. If you don’t think cost should be an issue, then are you willing to pay for others to go? Things cost money. That’s life, that’s reality. Someone will have to pay for it…are you willing to pay for others to go?  I have two kids I’d love for you to pay for.  I’m not willing to pay for others’ college education as it’s a privilege, not a right. I’ve already paid for my own.  Again, people should be responsible for themselves and stop acting as if they are entitled to everything regardless of their ability to pay for things.   And if you and others who want their education paid for and want to live in China under their form of government, go ahead. I’m not interested in that. 
    • I think it might be said that if you can succeed in college then you are entitled to loan forgiveness.  Do you want China and other countries far exceeding us in education?  The bottom line is that loans shouldn't be a factor.  We need to find a way for kids who have a drive to succeed in school get to go to school.  Advanced education, in certain areas, should be covered.  Doctors and lawyers and such...
    • It sounds like you’re arguing that some students would have to drop out is a reason to forgive the loan…as if college college is an entitled right…that everyone is entitled to college.  It’s not; it’s like a car: you might need it for a job or career, but you’re not entitled to a car. You can buy one if you can afford it.  With that line of logic, where do you draw the line?  If I can’t afford my house and I would otherwise need to be homeless, then is the bank supposed to forgive my loan?  I’m not entitled to anything I can’t afford. It’s called living within my means and being fiscally responsible.
    • A lot of students, if they didn't take out the loan, would have to drop out of college.  In the STEM areas we need those students in school.  So I'm not terrifically opposed to forgiving loans.  Also, it's a small boost to the economy, allowing those graduates to spend their discretionary income and feed the the consumer economy. I paid off all my student loans... took some time.  Now, I need to call a credit card company or two to see if they'll forgive my loans...
    • I’d agreed with this logic 100%. I paid off my loans. It’s called being responsible for your decisions. Simply enough, I think people should be held responsible and be accountable for the decisions they make. I think our society is becoming increasingly irresponsible or denying personal accountability as people want to make excuses as to why they shouldn’t be held accountable for their own choices.    Ignorance is no excuse. They made the decision. They should seek wise council before taking the loan out. Maybe they could learn from their mistakes instead of bailing everyone out and they learn nothing except that they won’t be held responsible for the decisions they make.   having said all of that, moving forward, I’d agree college unjustifiably expensive and reform would be welcomed
