Day 48 (12/8/21) - Just noticed that I messed up the date yesterday. It should have read "Day 47 (12/7/21)".....

More putting practice today. I started out by carefully checking my setup from the front and side; repeated several times. The worked on making "perfect putts" on my PuttOUT mat from 1' to 6'.

Day 1 (08 Dec 21) - Starting over today with some basic putting work (it has rained all day, so inside it is).  Used the white stripe side of the putting mat to work on alignment. Used the parquet flooring (6” squares”) for foot alignment.    Funny thing I was consistently getting it in using the white line from 3 and 4ft. Just the opposite when I moved over to left side - no line, bigger hole - consistently  pushing it just right of the hole.  Still a great way to get in some putting work on a rainy day.

Day 130:

Cold and drizzly outside so continued working on cupped wrist backswing feel to keep club from going too much inside, and also working on transition move. Transition feels good in slow rehearsal, and okay striking balls at slow speed, but hasn’t translated to 100% speed well yet.

Day 2 (09 Dec 21) - played 18 at RiverBend today.  Worked on “feel” at impact, in essence having head down, most of my weight on lead foot, hips rotated, lead wrist probated w/good shaft lean.  Sounds busy, but working thru the mental checklist helped as I would  set up with the “feels” in place, do a few waggles and then make the swing.  Have to say overall ball striking much more consistent.

Day 49 (12/9/21) - Did Day-1, Early Backswing, from 30-day practice plan inside. Paid particular attention to grip, stance and ball position. I did right and left wrist only then pivot. Hit some pitching motion shots outside after the snow melted.

Day 5. 12/10/2021

30 day Covid-19 practice plan day 04 (lead wrist condition)

 

For me this drill was more about lead wrist awareness. Never before been so focused on my lead wrist conditions at address or at the top or at A6. And, guess what, makes a lot of difference at impact!! A definite “ah ha” moment for me.

Thank you Erik!

Day 3 (10 Dec 21) - played 18 at Minnesott today.  Worked on setup focusing on head down, weight forward.  Staying focused in this area is giving more predictable ball flight and distance.

Day 132:

Went outside in the dark and hit balls with 8-iron, working on transition move. Used Mevo to track launch angle. Happy with how launch angle has decreased back to previous "norm", but it was too dark to make good assessment of start line (night time, black impact cloth on net).

    • What shaft is your friend using?  Maybe a good place to start is that shaft profile.  From there, you have a pretty nice budget to get whatever irons you want.
    • @Nick-uk Just a thought, you can always get your lie adjusted (whether you do it now or later).  It’s pretty simple to have done down the road.  I had mine adjusted 1 degree upright after the fact. FWIW… We’re similar height, similar distance with the 7i.  I’ve been playing the DG S300 and S400 for as long as I’ve been playing, and very happy with them.  I did try different shafts once, ran back to the DG.  I can only assume the DG product life has existed for a long time for a reason. Also, unless someone is quite short or tall, most people will be fine with a “standard” fit.
    • Unless I’m working off of outdated information, the standard Dynamic Gold shafts haven’t really changed much in decades. They’re known to be low launch and high spin, kind of the preferred trajectory of yesteryear. Again, spin rate alone is not enough information, but low spin rate + low apex height suggests an issue to me. It could just be your swing, but it’s also possible that shaft doesn’t fit you anyway. Just for reference I’m a “low spin” ball striker myself, but my 7i averages 5900 rpm, not 4000. My average apex height is 95’ though. I play KBS Tours. I was fitted out of DG S300 years ago. They don’t work for me.

    • Some of them know and care quite deeply. Your statement is wrong.
