Day 161:

Worked on some dynamic stuff slowly with 7-iron. Then hit 15 balls with 4-iron at full speed, doing a full pre shot routine before each ball. Plan to do this with Mevo+ later this week to see how it impacts shot quality.

Had a good day. Did three 10-minute sessions. First one was just mirror work (all set up). 
Then I spent 10 minutes working on my backswing priority piece.

Then I spent 10 minutes working on my hands priority piece. 

Both 10 minute sessions were in the garage on the mat into the net.

Day 114.  I just hit my 51st ball of working on the step drill from my latest Evolvr lesson today.  Indoors, off a mat, into the net, real balls, all with a 6-iron.

Day 241, June 29, 2022

Practice before lessons today downtown. Kept it short. Left thumb mildly sore. Will be fine, but didn't grind too hard.

Day 9: 6/29/2022

I too have a left thumb injury... 🤔

Anyway, I worked on my priority pieces again today with both the 5 iron and the 8 iron. Hitting ball into the net in my garage. 

Then I played 9 holes in league tonight. Hit the ball really well, kind of weird because it was the worst score I've posted all year. For one, the greens were really fury. I left many putts well short. I've generally been putting better of late. Is it also possible I hit the ball too well? I flew the green a lot. Seriously, I think I flew the green 3 times in 9 holes. Put me in deep trouble every time. Also, there were 3 times I ran out of fairway on drives. I was reaching stuff I really didn't expect to reach. Made a really nice birdie on hole 6 though.

Day 163:

Worked mostly on driver today with almost golf balls. Did some work on static change, then a bunch of rehearsals, and then some full swings. Made some improvement on the push start line, and ever so slight drop kick (graze the ground), at least for today.

Day 613: Played North Kingstown again in an early round. Played much better with the driver. I focused on slowing the backswing and transition down and let the backswing finish then start transition more smoothly.
