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 88 (01/19/22) - Warm enough to practice outside, so I did the low point control drill (Day 21) followed by partial wedge shots with a sand wedge.

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.

    • Welcome to TST.   We're glad you've joined.   
    • As @iacas wrote above, there's nothing disingenuous about it. I am quite sincere in my skepticism. FlightScope, a company founded to measure projectiles for defense (and continues to operate in that capacity), is a world leader in ballistic tracking. Their devices require a minimum of 15' of space (7' behind the ball at address and 8' of flight). And even with Titleist RCT balls, it still guesses the spin rate on some shots. The Mevo is just a radar device and is $500. The SwingLogic SLX Hybrid X3 Pro is a radar device, GPS, Bluetooth speaker, power bank, and waterproof, for the same price (MSRP). And it requires only 3' of space (you need more than 3' of space to swing a golf club, BTW)? I have to believe sacrifices are made somewhere. Actually, this thing is supposed to provide full shot analysis, right? Like the Mevo+ with Pro Package, but at a fraction of the price? Yea, I'm skeptical. I watched the review video on their site reviewing the SLX MicroSim, BTW. I don't consider that comparison to TrackMan "accurate." Is it in the ballpark? Sure. But is it accurate? Not really. Not by my standards, anyway. Some of us care about that.
    • Yeah, a brain fart. I would be killing it on the Hooters tour if I had a better........mental game. 😜
    • Day 165 (23 May 22) - still nursing the left foot, so I worked on transition from backswing to downswing using the 3w.  Followed with hitting hard foam balls (about 15 total) from my yard to my neighbor’s and back.  
    • Day 204, May 23, 2022 35-45 minutes working on the feels: Shift Hinge in a way that my arms pull across (which doesn't happen, that's the feel) Right wrist stays flat Throw face open/behind me as I shift. Went pretty well.
