Day 135:

Too rainy to do anything but indoor rehearsals, so that’s what I did.

Day 54 (12/14/21) - Nice day, so chipping practice in the yard. Fifteen balls each with my 58* SW (high), 44* PW (low) and 6H (bump and run) focusing on making good contact, proper setup and form, and varying the carry distance. 

I'm planning to work on these shots around the putting green in the next day or two as the whole week is expected to be god weather.

Day 7 (14 Dec 21) - played 18 at Minnesott today.  Big, big focus on iron play, had the 845s Silver Scots incl the 3i along with my older Vokey wedges (can we say non-groove compliant on irons and wedges).  One of the better days striking the irons as I love the feedback these steel shafted clubs provide over the graphite shafted SLDR irons and Cleveland CBX wedges.

Day 136:

Continued working on cupped wrist backswing feel, doing rehearsals indoors with LVP camera as digital mirror. Later hit some balls in the dark (really need to figure out getting practice in during daylight), working on transition move. Did a lot of slow rehearsals and practice swings before each ball. Start line is getting more consistently online, and launch angle looks good, but strikes aren't always clean, tend to be a touch fat and toward the toe.

Day 414: Fit for Golf workout and some work on the transition inside. Working on the feel of landing on the left side and rotating the hips before the arms. They both really move together, but the feel of hips first seems to help my sequence better.

Day 55 (12/15/21) - Hit shots with my 53* wedge using AlmostGolf balls in my yard today, using a motion which should have resulted in 55-60 yard carry with real golf balls (as a data point the AlmostGolf balls flew 25-30 yards). I am trying to shallow my swing such that I take very little divot and keep the trajectory down, hitting a draw. During the next couple of weeks, I plan to work on these shots at a local simulator and get some actual data.

Day 8 (15 Dec 21) - Mirror drills this evening- worked on swing from top of backswing to just thru impact, especially focused on getting as much rotation in the torso as possible and then slowly releasing by leading with the hips.  Easy to move fast and just blow through, hard to move slow and stay purposed.

Day 415: went to the range today. I worked on my priority pieces for a bit. After watching the video below, I also worked on ball position with everything from wedges to driver. Wedges and irons I moved forward. Driver I brought back a bit to my heel. My last MEVO + session I was hitting up on the driver 5-8 degrees, which is too much. I didn’t get any number today, but will hopefully work on it tomorrow.
