Day 78 (01/09/22) -  Worked on putting touch and speed on my PuttOUT mat by stroking putts from the 6' mark while trying to have to ball stop on the front edge of the target hole marked on the mat, w/o going in. After several attempts, I was able to get most putts to stop within 6" in front of the hole (I did not get any to literally stop on the edge).

Day 33 (09 Jan 22) - Got to play 18 this afternoon with 5yr old grandson.  Course was not too busy, so no pressure to hurry along.  Worked on utilizing the grip change @iacas recommended.  That has been a game changer.  Accuracy way up, shot shape very neutral to slight draw.  Very happy with today’s work.

Day 70, January 9, 2022

I worked a long day, but got some Mach 3 stuff in today, and got some work in at the end of the day just after picking things up. A long day.

Day 162:

Played 18 this morning. Drove the ball really well, but didn’t match with similar approach play. Planned on doing some work with Mevo+ in the afternoon, but after surviving my daughters ice skating birthday party with no injuries, I was too tired to swing a club.

Day 5: Mirror work again today. Checking my set up and doing a little bit of work on my backswing. Looking better with the set up - hips are definitely further forward.

Day 19: 1/10/2022.

Started out today with Putting. Worked on the gate drill to confirm I'm hitting the center of my putter. Struggled a bit. Spent 10-15 minutes on it.

I'll do some mirror work later on and probably repeat the putting drill just because I wasn't exactly happy with how well I did... or in this case didn't do.

Day 34 (10 Jan 21) - Got to play 18 today with my son. Used this round to work on reinforcing the grip adjustment and overall setup.  We were only ones on the course, so it was easy to not feel rushed.  Seeing batter shot shapes as the ball is now hooking, not a duck hook, but definitely not slicing right.

Day 6: Worked on putting today. Got my mat out and putted from 5 feet. Focused on my set up, just getting the hands a little higher and the elbows more bent.

Day 163:

Finally getting some dry weather and sunny skies, so was planning to do full swing work with Mevo+ today, however a sick household (good chance it's covid) killed that idea. Did some grip practice and putting indoors on a yardstick while quarantining with wife and kids.

    • Except that they've already had two events (Portland, Trump's course), and will have at least one more in Boston… and are having like ten next year in the U.S. Plus, there are multiple other Tours in the U.S., they're just not as big as the PGA Tour. Once again… is there anywhere else in North America to play "meaningful" hockey besides the NHL/AHL? How about "meaningful" basketball besides the NBA or it's developmental league? "Meaningful" football outside of the NFL? How about baseball? Your points are bad because your grasp of the facts and logic is bad. It's an "investment" fund, though, so I would argue that they expect it to be profitable at some point. They don't just spend money from it, they're actively trying to "invest" it to get a return. I don't believe the "they don't expect to make a profit" angle. Not in the short term, but if it's just going to be a money hole they may just pull the plug at some point in a few years.

    • Kind of takes the ’mono’ out of monopoly when your rival tour is getting top players. It’s a rival tour and the players want to be able to play both tours. That’s the ludicrous part. Pick one. I could not have worked for Gillette and for SC Johnson at the same time. And no one in their right mind would have thought I should have been able too. So the PGAT is in fact not a monopoly because the LIV exists. That is the basic point. If the LIV tour model required making money, then one could argue unfair practices. But it doesn’t. And it’s not the PGAT’s responsibility to help LIV make money. When ATT was broken up, it was because they were controlling the entire market and dictating prices. Splitting them require them to provide infrastructure to aid the new entities. But this case is entirely different because LIV is just spending money of their own with no attempt to be a viable self-sustainable business.
    • There are more qualified people who have already responded in this thread about overall practice, but I think you should prioritize practicing the driver if you have a short warm-up before a round. Like if you hit 15-20 balls (as I often do), I prioritize the driver because it's going to give me the best prediction of my ball flight that particular day. As far as overall practice goes, I'll defer to other answers.
