Day 83 (18 Sep 21) - Played 18 today.  Decided to use the DF992 putter today on some of the toughest greens to play that I have played of late.  Result - previous round 36 putts, this round 38.  Not great putting in either case.  To be honest, I am move comfortable with the Odyssey White Steel #5 as opposed to the DF992.  Also was a good day of defensive approach shots to the greens and then trying to not "overread" but rather trust the read and putt consistently.  Had a number of putts that either just skated by or lipped out.  Could not complain.

After shouting a 98 today (under 100 -- 1st time ever!) and feeling I could've done much better...

Day 8:

Practiced with irons... specifically focusing on setup and tempo (30 min).

Here's a typical view I had of the pin today.

Day 9:

Worked every club in the bag in my golf pit... emphasis on "feeling the lag, uncoil, and strike!" (60 min).

Weekly plan: focus this week will be on irons, as I plan a return visit to Lake St. Clair Metropark.

Day 50:

Played 18 this morning. Overnight rain made the course a little sloppy. Fairways were wet and hadn't been mowed, and greens were punched, sanded, and also unmowed. Didn't have my best swing, but made it work for the round, and scored pretty well.

Day 84 (19 Sep 21) - worked on tempo with the putter this evening.  I want to get an "automatic" sensation happening where I don't want to be guessing the tempo, but know it.  Sort of like muscle memory when playing guitar chords - your fingers automatically know where.  I know that putting is not that great in separation value, but also know that being comfortable with the flat stick is key as well.

Day 204.  Several times during football Sunday, I took 5-10 minute breaks to hit a few practice balls.  As always, the focus was on the slow correct swings.  I think several small sessions might be better for me than one extended long session:  I don't always have good discipline as I go past the 15 minute mark, and sometimes I catch myself raking in a ball and hitting it right away;  by contrast, when I consciously start a short session, I'm going to at least set in with what I set to do.

    • Every year they have a "big deal" hickory tournament south of here in Oregon.  Totally fascinates me.  Hickory clubs, dressing the part, flasks etc.   Personally, I'll take my hickory on the BBQ pit... USHO/2021 – Northwest Hickory Players  
    • I was always a big Mighty Mouse fan:  
    • Well, with their QB back, Penn State decided to lay an egg. Though, with the new college football overtime rules (going to 2-pt conversions after the 3rd OT), they went to 9 OT!!!! There was a point that neither team converted on a 2-pt conversion a combined 8 times in a row! No one could get 3-yards! I am more upset that this devalues Penn State when Ohio State probably trounces them. 
    • Shorter flight, no spin. Gotta land it before the green a lot and let bounce it on. I like hitting the driver. I find it really forces me to swing smooth with a mild tempo. You don’t really use the Wedge(Niblick) around the greens other than when you are forced to flop it over something, which is tough to do. Often you will use a Mashie which is lofted similar to a 7 iron around the greens. The biggest learning curve is just in hitting the ball cleanly. The front edge on these clubs is very sharp.
