Day 153.  Before grocery shopping, I stopped at a putting green and worked for half an hour on 3' and 30' putts.  The end of the 3' practice included taking 17 shots to finish all 12 for my clock drill (not great, but not as bad as a month ago) and the 30' finished with my final six putts from 30' (due to this green, they weren't significantly different on the clockface, so I'm still getting a similar read, but I know better than to assume it.  And of course, I had to hit them the right speed) with a total of 11 strokes (five 2-putts and I also sank one).

After lunch and before gym, I did the quarantine days 9 (again, with feedback from yesterday) + 10 (which took a while to get right... I'm not even sure I got it right, video to show up later today).

Addendum:  I haven't figured out my trigger for the day 10 practice plan.  That's going to take me a bit more thought

Day 63, July 27, 2021:

Three-quarter swing work again today, hey I may lose a little bit of distance, but I know where the ball is going.

Rinse, Repeat, keep working on it kind of deal. I’m having small successes with the 3/4 swing so something must be working.

Day 31 (27 Jul 21) - Played nine hole best ball with the men's church group.  Love this format as it often presents shots from ranges I may not see that often.  Also there is no pressure in this format as you have ample opportunity to get GIR or par or better when putting.  Was able to focus on the form and making solid ball contact especially the irons and fairways.  Great day with the latter, not as strong with the former.  Good up and down work around the greens as we had to scramble on several holes to make par (the age range was 5 to 85, the youngest - my grandson, the eldest one of the guys at church who has just started to play again).

Day 577 - July 27, 2021

Worked on the backswing work after a late lesson. Just ten minutes or so, but it's good to have some mirrors back again.

Day 113 (7/28/21) - Did some putting on the rug today, focused on the target when I made my stroke. Putts were only 3-4 feet, but I can see enough benefit, at least on short ones, to give it a try on the course.

Day 32 (28 Jul 21) - Played nine today with the 5yr old grandson.  We got back before the rain started.  Used this practice round to work on ball striking and carry distance.  Using the Approach S20, I had planned to used the back distance of the greens as the "carry" factor on the approaches.  Of course if the pin was in the front, then I used the middle distance (center of green) to figure what I needed to carry.  Planned well, executed poorly as the round had only 1 GIR and 4 nGIR.

Day 154.  I practiced the "snapping sticks" quarantine drill a bit more today, both with the alignment stick and my 6-iron (I seem to feel it more in my right arm than my left, although once I've gone for 30 seconds, I can start to feel it in my core).  I also hit a dozen full swing shots with my 6-iron (indoors, off a mat, etc), the usual practice routine for them, focusing on takeaway and position at the end of the backswing.

Day 114 (7/29/21) - 

Practice green - Worked on chipping with my 58* and 6H to different holes and from different lies, then putting out. Then played 5-holes of chip and putt, scoring a 13.  When putting, I focused on the hole, rather than the ball. 

Range - Hit a small bucket. With wedges, hybrids and fairway woods I focused making sure the low point of my swing was in front of the ball. For driver, I focused on swinging smoothly and making sure the low point was behind the ball. The 2-3 best drives I hit today, bar far, were using the Distanza shaft in my G400.

Day 33 (29 Jul 21) - 1st time playing a "new" to me course, about an hour from the house.  This was a great day to work on course management as I did not "know what to expect".  Got there early enough to spend a few moments on the putting green - which was key as this course has the best greens I have played all year.  Ball rolled true and it took a good touch to not over shoot the holes.  Back to the course management - heavy rains yesterday made the course "cart path only".   Having to think through the next shot and approaches made this the most rewarding round in a long time.

    • Day 53: Did some yardstick putting practice indoors, and some rehearsal/swing mapping with a PW, also indoors.  
    • Day 207.  If you think I hit some 6-iron shots today, you're right!  But I also spent 30 minutes putting on a real green by taking a break to do so;  I didn't do drills, and I mostly hit from 3-12' ; the shorter ones I focused on doing my best to make it, the longer ones I wanted to get close enough to have a chance but, if I missed, to miss them long with a short return putt.  I also spent ten minutes hitting half shots with my 54 degree (indoors, off a mat, real balls). 
    • Mostly firstname lastname.  No titles;  if I did, somewhere between a third and a half of my active contacts would have the prefix Dr. and that would just be confusing.  A few are in there as pseudonyms;  even though no one goes through my phone, it's just in case as I don't think they'd want their personal number getting released through my carelessness.   A few are missing last names, usually if I don't know that information about them for some reason, and a few have reminders if I only sort of know them or if there are two or more people I know with the same first-name last-name combination.   Scrolling through the contact list, I have a ton of people I haven't had any communication with, phone or otherwise, in over a decade.   The only time I have ever known how I'm stored in someone else's phone was back in college when I, at some point, found out that my then-girlfriend had me stored in her phone as "Bozo."
