Day 449: my backs a bit tight from all the renovations I’ve been doing. So I just worked on setup today.

Lesson this morning. A bit of backswing adjustment, and then worked primarily on a transition move.

Day 27, 1/18/2022

Just mirror work this morning. 

I may get some putting and/or chipping in later tonight, but I still have another meeting to go to (on line meeting) and then gotta get ready to head out early tomorrow. So, I'm happy I was able to get the mirror work in.

Day 41 (18 Jan 22) - Worked on the swing setup today while pitching in the backyard with the 54.   Dialing in on the target was key, especially as I was doing this in the late afternoon sun - talk about blinded by the light.  Had to trust the setup and related swing to deliver.   Was also getting good spin that produced good checking of the ball.  Hope to take it to the course tomorrow.

Day 42 (19 Jan 22)  - played 18 today, saw in the front nine where the work from the past week or so on the setup paid off. Shot a 1 over 37.  Got disjointed on the back and fell off the wagon with 12 over. Will continue the setup drills tomorrow.

Day 80, January 19, 2022

Ten minutes (max) at the end of a "felt longer than it was" sort of day. At least it's in the upper 50s inside now!

Day 28. In all day meetings today plus dealing with family stuff. 
I did get my mirror work in.

Basically I did a couple of minutes without a club. 

Then a couple of minutes using a short piece of PVC pipe. Helps with the stretch and the turn.

Then with the club across my shoulders 

Finally with the club gripped normally. 

Next week I'll be hitting balls again, I expect to get some video. I'm hoping to see a big change.

Day 15: Mirror work again. Checking set up, and doing a little bit of work on the backswing. Working on some feels to try to keep the knee a little more inward during the backswing. Still checking set up though, which still needs some more focus on bending my knees.

Day 43 (20 Jan 22) - more work on the setup with the 6i in the backyard.  Focused on what happens at and after impact by working keeping the turn happening.  Finished up by making mindful swings with the iron and the hard foam balls off the tee - again working to bring the upper torso/shoulders on around.

Day 29, 1/20/2022

Another busy day with family obligations and all day meetings. But on lunch I did my mirror work. 

Once again, I started out with no club. 

Then I did a split grip on the piece of 1/2" PVC pipe. 

Then I did a club across my collarbone.

I finished up with using the club with my standard grip. 

I was also able to get some nice putting "Bead" work in. Basically I did Day 15 of the Covid-19 practice plan. That went very well. I hit very few gates. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

    • I have a putting mat in my office. It's 9 feet long almost 4 feet wide. I've drawn a line down it in order to practice hitting my line and stuff. Works fine for what it is.  While I'm not a fan of lining up a line on my golfball for every putt. I think for practice sessions it can have a lot of value.  To me this product makes sense. This is the first time I've seen it. It showed up as an add on the right side of the TST webpage. What do you all think? PuttAIM Laser Training Aid Get ready to dominate the greens like never before. PuttAIM Golf is a golf putting aid that uses laser technology to help you improve your game. This device works to ensure your putts are aligned properly and on track...  
    • Of course. I've used different words to start, but like 90-95% of the time it's been this one. And I'm unlikely to switch now.
    • Welcome to TST @Camjr.   We're glad you've joined.  
    • Angle is not a factor. I hit the ball 100’ high. Par is net birdie. My CH is 16. The rough between the bunkers is like 10’ wide though. That’s not something you’re going to try to hit on purpose. Most of the area to the left of that is fescue/native vegetation and I’m pretty sure there isn’t a flat lie in any of it. It’s the second hole.
    • Hello all.  I'm about to be 57 yrs old, started playing when I was 16, and have quit and restarted the game more times than I can count.  I had started playing a weekly round with a friend, and finally made the jump to Senior A shafted Tour Edge clubs.  Instantly gained 10 yds with an easier swing (why didn't I make that jump sooner???).  Glad to be a part of the group. Cheers all,
