Day 92 (27 Sep 21) - worked extensively on pre-shot routine today - grip, shot flight, landing area, alignment (shoulders, hips, feet).  Even though I kept the shots to the backyard, the focus was on repeating the setup steps no matter the shot distance, to ingrain a good solid pre-shot routine.

Day 212.  Did the ruler putting drill (indoors, on a carpet) several times this evening, focusing on shoulder movement.  Did well but didn't keep explicit track of how well.

Day 93 (28 Sep 21) - Tried a new routine in my practice round.  Taking a cue from @iacas and their recent round of Best/Worst I read where ChiChi Rodriguez said he would do Worst Ball practice rounds.  Tried it this morning at Minnesott as I knew I would be playing Best Ball this afternoon.  Sure is hard to hit your 2nd shot from 20yds back when one tee shot was not that good.  Also when on the green, having a putt run past meant paying the penalty.  Really made for a strong day of course management.

Day 213.  Wind-down when I got home today was ten minutes practicing quarter swings with my pitching wedge : a shot I didn't hit particularly well a few days ago, mechanically.

Day 94 (29 Sep 21) - Had a good round of 8i and Birdie Ball in the backyard today.  Worked on the pre-shot routine and getting the shot to land where I planned. Funniest moment was when my grandson hit his onto the back deck and without hesitation said, “Paw-paw let’s not tell YaYa!”  Was likely the most confident and comfortable session of swinging an iron of late.  Hope to carry that same feel and comfort to the course next time out.

Day 214.    Relaxation after work was ten minutes hitting quarter shots with my pitching wedge, focused on technique (as all was inside, off a mat, into a net, but real balls).

Day 95 (30 Sep 21) - Got to play 18 at RiverBend today.  Used the "slow" pace to make changes in the club choices, i.e. not just hitting the same clubs I usually do when at those distances on the holes.  It made for an interesting round of scrambling at nearly every hole as I was getting on with the third on the fours and fours on the fives.  Chipping was the best ever today with the 8i and 9i.  Had good pitches with the 52deg wedge.  I am stoked that this part of the game is coming around.  Learning to quiet the mind and the body to get things working in harmony.

Day 20:

Golf pit session with SHOT VISION app for a launch monitor (60 min).

I've serious doubts that the DISTANCES reported are accurate.  However, it's nice to have some sort of measurable for comparisons. 💡

    • 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.
