Day 23 (30 Dec 21) - Played 18 today (last round of the year).  Focus was on the grip and keeping it strong.  More predictable ball flight for sure and better overall accuracy. Great day of on course work!

Day 9: 

Okay, so yesterday I did a bunch of mirror work and then tried to translate that to hitting balls. I filmed a couple of my swings (the first, the last, on in the middle). I want to look at them before my next mirror work session. So, I'll have time to do that later. 

So far this morning I did 10-15 minutes of putting. Which was mostly bead work. I did the old string drill on six footers. Then I did the gate drill. Each of these with a dozen balls. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Day 24 (31 Dec 21) - got in the yard for a few moments, worked on some pitches with the SW, my go to club around the green.  Focus today was on gripping down vs my grip position to get the bounce working best.

Day 69 (12/31/21) - Played 5 holes at North Kingstown today.  With all of the rain we've had this week, the course was soaked and given the heavy air, the ball didn't go anyplace, not to mention my really poor swings for the first few holes. Had a great time however. Also made use of an empty hole to practice 50 yard wedge shots, first with my 53* SW then with my 49* UW. 

I also got to try out my new Shot Scope V3. 

Happy New Year everyone!

Day 10: 

Okay, so yesterday I did a lot of mirror work. Trying staying in super-slow motion. I've already done a little more of that today. I plan to do even more. 

I also already worked on some putting today.
Since the old string drill was still set up for six footers, I spent 10 minutes on that. I always like to do the gate drill after the string drill, so I spent a few more minutes on that as well.

The other thing I plan to do today is put a grip on an old wedge I found in my closet. I'm going to stick that in my office with some dimes and foam balls. I'll do chipping drills during breaks in conference calls. 

2022 = Get Better.

Day 62, January 1, 2022

You can't practice every day of the year if you don't practice the first day of the year. 🙂

Spent an hour before juniors this morning and then about ten minutes afterward. Same stuff.

    • Cycling to a golf course definitely adds an adventurous twist to the game. To make it feasible, consider paring down your gear and opting for lightweight equipment. Investing in a bike rack designed for golf clubs can also help ease the transportation process. Planning your route carefully and allowing for extra time can ensure a smooth ride to the course.When it comes to protecting your bike and gear, bicycle insurance is essential. Considering the investment in both your bike and golf equipment, it's wise to have coverage for unexpected events. You can explore bicycle insurance uk to find a policy that fits your needs.
    • Are these one putt percentages? Even if those three buckets between 12 and 30 feet are all 1 for 2, that's high. 3 for 6 from 12 to 30 feet is a serious outlier. The others could be: 15/16 6/11 7/12 5/13 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/9 67 putts total, which is probably 2 rounds? My rough shot at strokes gained for that lot would be: -0.6 + -2.8 + 0.0 + 0.5 + 0.5 + 0.8 + 0.9 + 0.0 = -0.7 (PGA Tour baseline). Over two rounds that's pretty good and extremely good for a 15 index baseline. I'd think a 15 index would be expected to be somewhere in the -6 over two rounds. And that's with 3-6ft killing you.
