Day 2: mirror work again. Working on set up, making sure my hips are more over my heels. Looks good, feels weird.

Day 16: 01/07/2022.

I reviewed my last 2 filmed swings. Then I did 10 minutes in front of the mirror. Trying to "fix" what isn't right in the video. It's a surprisingly engrained habit. 

Then I ate breakfast and did some putting practice/experimenting. I experimented with heads up putting, then also putting while looking at a spot about a foot to 18 inches in front of the ball, and then putting while looking at the ball. I wanted to kind of get a feel for what's more comfortable and what's more effective. 

Looking at a spot about a foot or so in front of the ball is the most comfortable. But the most effective appears to be actually looking at the ball. My tests and/or results are by no means scientific. Just kind of checking it out.

Day 31 (07 Jan 22) - Full swings with the hybrids today.  Worked on ball position - keeping the ball more forward.  Also worked on getting hips fully rotated while "in static" impact position.

Day 438: After shoveling the 8” of snow we got, I didn’t have a lot of energy to do too much. I did spend 10 minutes working on gripping with the club down and hitting some punch shots into my basement net. I kind of like gripping this way because it really lets me aim the face at setup better.

Day 68, January 7, 2022

Did some work on hanging/moving some nets at the academy, hanging a projector, and then some GEARS work with a student. Then hit balls for 15 minutes focusing on what I'm doing but at about 85% speed. Went pretty well.

Day 160:

Hit some balls outside today for the first time in awhile. Tried to work at what felt like about 50% speed, focus on hip turn piece, and also a little flow because for some reason, when I focus so much conscious effort on my turn, I kind of stall the flow element of the swing.

Day 3: Still doing mirror work on set up. Working on getting the hips over my heels rather than behind them. Feels weird still. Which is good!

Day 18: 1/9/2022

Slept in today. Then got up and worked out before breakfast. Did some quality mirror work. Working on staying centered over the ball. 
First step is no club, repeat until I get the feel.
Second step is club across the collarbone, repeat until I get the feel.

Third step is drawing back the club trying to get the same feel. Checking in the mirror.

    • The movie "Grease" is still one of my favorite of all time greats.
    • Slow swing speed here, so lots of headcovers: Driver - 10.5* 5W - 18* 9W - 23* 6H (5i replacement) - 27* 7H (6i replacement) - 30* The gapping from 5W to 7H is about 10 yards per club, so it works well for me.
    • I have a food dehydrator. I bought extra racks for it, too. It takes a bit of time so to me it’s not worth doing in small batches.
    • My driver is a Titleist 913D3, and beyond that my two longest clubs are the matching 4-wood, 17 degree standard bumped down to 16.25 degrees.  And then a 4i.    I used to have the 3-wood in the bag that matches the woods, but the 4-wood has a smaller head which I prefer hitting off the ground.   When it's wet/rainy conditions I swap in a hybrid and take out a 64 degree wedge that I carry for firmer conditions.   That makes the hybrid the second longest after the 4-wood.
