Day 9 (16 Dec 21) - temps in the 70’s (eastern NC in Dec), got outside and worked on bump and runs with the 9i in the backyard.  Gotta love weather breaks like these.

Day 416: Worked on my priority pieces today with 6 iron and driver and filmed them. They felt off, but looked ok on the video. Finished with the MEVO Plus and some 7 iron swings.

Day 10 (17 Dec 21) - Birdie Ball and 8i today.  Worked on the full swing and getting the desired shot shape.  This was after watching a bit of Golf School this am on the Golf Channel and they had the Golden Bear giving some tips.  Worked on keeping the arms extended, and that led to getting a slight draw shape.  Best shot was I the last set where I struck it solid enough to “backspin” the Birdie ball.   Never did that before.

Day 417: Got some work in before the snow. Noticed in reviewing yesterday’s work that my head was moving back a bit too much in my efforts to get my hands higher. Focused on keeping the head steadier while getting the hands higher.

Day 48 - December 18, 2021

Half an hour after juniors working on the soft right shoulder. It's funny how good I can hit it when I'm staring back at a mirror the whole backswing (behind me), get there okay in about five or six seconds, and then just hit it from there. 😛

Day 58 (12/18/21) - Putting practice today. I'm switching to arm lock and so spent most of the practice focusing on setup and form in swinging the putter.

Day 139:

Took a day off yesterday to rest a sore neck.

Today worked really hard on the SLOW part of 5S. I guess I was also working on my cupped wrist backswing feel and a little bit of palmar flexion stuff on downswing, but my practice intent was to practice going slow and I think I did a good job. Used Mevo to track club head speed, and once I got in a groove I didn’t have any swings higher than 75mph (typical 90-95mph depending on my energy level and how warmed up I am).

Day 11 (18 Dec 21) - Worked through full swing keying on weight shift and head position during takeaway-top of backswing-just before impact and post impact in front of the mirror, no club, working consciously through each.  Controlled tension is not easy.

    • @bkuehn1952Thanks for that response.  What is the value in 90% handicap.  I understand how it would lower the HCP of the best players, but wouldn't it harm the high handicappers?   Thanks.    
    • I love the grind. I learned to love it from Mr. O’Grady. We would show up at sunrise and leave at sunset every single day of a MORAD school. Wish he’d let me go to another one.   I do a 90 minute to 2 hour session everyday. 30 minutes mechanics. 30 minutes measured practice hitting to targets and measuring proximity… Then 30 - 60 minutes either on mechanics again or playing a simulated round.
    • Use official handicaps. Make everyone who plays sign up for a handicap. Using handicaps based on tournament play is better but it takes a long time for a player to have a reasonable number of scores. Yes, the new handicap system starts at three scores but I think the resulting number has low credibility. Also, it takes a bit of work to calculate the “C” handicap. If you have 40 players, make two flights. Make the split wherever it needs to be to get equal flights.  If there is a large spread in the high and low index in each flight, consider using a percentage of the handicap (90% is recommended). Your Club Champion should be the player with the lowest gross average over the season with a minimum number of events required (5?). You can also award “Net Player of the Year” to the member who wins the most gift certificates.
    • Been on the diet since April 2019. I take it to prevent cluster headaches, which I've suffered from since age 13. The keto diet somehow stops neurological issues like epilepsy and cluster headaches for some reason. They don't really know for sure how. I suspect it has something to do with an inflammation reduction, at least in regards to the cluster headaches. There are also some possible benefits for alcoholism, or alcohol use disorder as it's called now. The Ketogenic Diet May Play a Role in Treating Alcoholism This dietary intervention may help with detox and cravings. The diet's not for everybody though, agreed there. I think a lot of people do great on carbs. I however definitely don't unfortunately. Keto helps me a lot.
    • It is interesting that according to the poll, more members carry a 4 or 5 iron than a 9 iron. I suspect some responders may have misunderstood the question and listed their longest iron rather than all the irons they carry. Or maybe the info is spot on.
