Day 34 - December 4, 2021

Hit balls after junior lessons today. Starting to integrate the downswing feeling into my four-step swing… Swing to 2 or 2.5, to 4, to 5.5 or 6, pump and go. When I pump I make sure to throw the shaft behind me a bit more.

Day 163 (04 Dec 21) - mirror work, still fighting to have good rotation thru the swing, shaft position at impact and finishing with good rotation.   Definitely doing it in slo-mo helps.  Well worth the time.

Day 127:

Played 18 this morning. Cold morning but started off pretty well so didn't think it was affecting me, but ultimately played poorly on the front, and good on the back.

Day 405: Pulled out the Tour Striker PlaneMate and worked with that today. The protocols are in line with my priority pieces. I filmed them and things looked pretty good but I need to let my weight go forward more from the top.

Day 2. 12/07/2021

Day 1 of 30 day Covid-19 practice plan (early backswing).

Nice feel to this drill, thinking it might transfer well to pre-shot routine. Hitting balls into net from A2…. Wow solid strikes.

Day 167 (07 Dec 21) - worked on foot position today,  doing full swings with both driver and 5i.  Went from open to neutral to closed, paying attention to flight of the hard foam balls.   Note - just realized I forgot to post yesterday’s drills (easy pitches w/7i in the backyard - per rules I “missed” posting more than two days w/the past 28, tomorrow begins Day 1 again)

Day 129:

Worked on backswing, recentering, and start of downswing today. Mostly indoor rehearsals while I was in various meetings. Also hit some balls into the net outdoors, with an 8-iron.

    • Thanks for creating this thread @iacas. I’m nearly done with a first read of the book. Just starting the Mental Game section. I’m a big fan of Jon Sherman and Practical Golf. I also listen to The Sweet Spot podcast and appreciate what he and Adam are adding to the community.  My initial take: about 80% of what is covered in this book is in Lowest Score Wins. And in many cases, LSW covers it more effectively by giving succinct actionable advice. There’s a theme and flow that both books use: Use information at hand to manage expectations Pick better targets (for driving and approach play) Learn how to drive the ball further Incorporate random practice to supplement blocked practice LSW does a better job IMO of helping steer the reader towards effective use of practice time by introducing the concept of “Separation Value”. Four Foundations is going to help folks that haven’t read LSW. I found myself finishing several chapters with “is that all???”, hoping Jon would provide more details and actionable advice. For example, Jon advocates becoming a “one trick pony” and limiting your menu of golf shots. I think he could have gone further to help players analytically arrive at an appropriate “sub-menu”. So unless you are just a golf book junkie like I am, if you’ve read LSW I don’t think you’ll find much new here.
