Day 81, January 20, 2022

Long day even though it didn't start until 12. 🙂 Second student really couldn't work well, wasn't paying attention, or really being conscious.

So, ten minutes after that, all of which were probably a bit too fast, but which I hit pretty well.

Day 5:

Holy shit!

5pm and there is still daylight, no more lingering Covid fatigue, felt great to go outside and hit some balls finally.

Hit 20 balls total. First 10, worked on backswing, multiple rehearsals, and then a slow swing through the ball, just sort of punching it into the net. Next 10 worked on transition move, with multiple rehearsals from top of backswing, and then a less "punchy" downswing, trying to go at about 75% full speed (probably closer to 95% just due to the exhilaration of finally practicing again).

Day 44 (21 Jan 22) - winter mess outside, so worked on two different areas.  First was purely on the hand position on the grip at setup, involved mirror work.  Getting the lead hand followed by the trail. No swings, just “getting a grip”.  Second part was with the grandson - we worked on putting accuracy.  Groups of 15 balls at about 12’.  First was to lag it to within a 1’ area.  For a 5 yr old he settled in to where he was averaging about 10 of 15 in the zone.  Best I did was 13 of 15.  Then we set up the putting target. Only counted those that went in and the target spit it out.  He did pretty good with a best of 6 of 15.  Best I did was 8 of 15.  Love it when drills are fun and a teaching moment to another generation.

Day 6:

Did more outdoor practice with priority piece today. This time focused more on the transition since this is the true priority piece, but before hitting a ball, did 3X backswing rehearsals, 3X transition rehearsals, and then ball.

Hoping to get some extended outdoor practice time on the Mevo+ this weekend and  get some updated LSW shot zones since I haven't revisited these for awhile, and also record my January swing for my swing thread (part of 2022 goals).

Day 30, 1/21/2022

Mirror work again. Same thing as before. I did the no club thing. Then the PVC pipe. Then the club across the collarbone and finally with the club. 

I also did two putting drills with 12 balls each. Started with the gate drill while trying to sink a six footer into a 2-1/8 inch hole. For this drill there's a line drawn on my putting green. I use a ball on either side of my putter head as the "gates". Then I try to calmly roll the ball down the line into the small hole 6 feet away without hitting either "gate" with my putter head. 

Then I did the second putting drill which is again a six footer. This time through an actual 1-3/4" gate that's 2 feet away from the ball and 4 feet from the hole. (Okay not a hole I used the Putt-Out for this one.) Once again, 12 balls. I try to get them through the gate and into the Putt-Out. Once in every 20 or 30 I actually stick one in the Putt-Out mechanism.

Day 31 1/22/22

I got up early this morning and did a little left over work in my office. Then I got to the important stuff and knocked out my mirror work. 
The next two weeks work should lighten up a bit, so I hope to get more and varied practice in.

Day 45 (22 Jan 22) - Sleet and snow last night, so inside work today.  Spent time doing setup work in the mirror.  Grip, stance and turn (less arms, more torso), getting weight on lead foot and trusting the lead foot will support.

Day 91 (01/22/22) - Worked on setup with the putter today, using a mirror to make sure that my eyes were set consistently. 

Based on some really inconsistent putting in 2021 using a standard length putter and claw grip I had been moving towards switching to armlock putting, which I had been practicing pretty hard this winter. However after seeing David Edel's video on the claw and trying his approach, which includes using a strong left hand grip, I am so pleased with the results that I've decided to stick with the claw. Hence the time spent on getting the setup right.

Day 7:

Did more work hitting balls outside today. Lots of wind last night blew the net and mat all over the yard, so spent some time putting my practice area back together and measuring out distances for Mevo+. Worked with 7-iron doing rehearsals on backswing piece, and then hit balls with 7-iron working on transition.

    • Yeah, I get there every year, or more, but it still seems like yesterday that we were all together, relative strangers for a day, good friends just a couple of days later.  This year, I'll be spending 3 weeks at Talamore, 1 week with a group of guys, the second week for Thanksgiving with my wife, and then staying another week in order to attend the USGA Rules Workshop at Pine Needles.  I'll be interested to try the Top Tracer, and to see the new short-game area at Talamore.  
    • It only seems like about a month ago...oh wait, cause I've been going every August since then. 😉 We moved our annual Myrtle Beach trip to Talamore because of how awesome this event was and have not looked back. https://coachjimsc.wixsite.com/talamore2022 Also Talamore has added Toptracer to the driving range and our group was picked to be the first guinea pigs.
