Day 169:

Did some full swing work with Mevo+, using 7-iron and 4-iron. I'm happy with where my launch angles are right now, and I will verify on GC4 next lesson. Didn't count these as shot zone mapping since I was also working on some mechanical changes at the same time, but I wasn't unhappy with dispersion - just a few pulls/bad left misses, but main miss is a push with a bit of slice.

Day 250 - Busy day with stuff around the house today. Did swings with my Orange Whip Wedge to work on tempo for finesse and distance wedge shots; more work with finesse shots from the rough. I think that I have a technique down which will work well, now need to take it to the practice green.

Day 22 (06 Jul 22) - Worked on putting stroke today - primarily focusing on the length of backswing compared to through swing.   Practiced lagging putts at varied distances and to specific target points (goal was to just have the ball roll to or just past said points).

Day 251 - Small bucket at the North Kingstown range today. Started with Distance wedge block practice, PW thru LW, two swing lengths (shaft parallel and left arm parallel) then hit Drivers for the last 10 balls. Finished with some time on the practice green hitting shots from various locations in the rough and fringe and then did some putting speed work.

Day 17: 7/7/2022

Spent time at the range today working on my priority pieces. I didn't hit anything really well and started "hunting". That made things worse.

Not a great practice session today. I'll try to do better tomorrow.

Day 123.  Played 18 today.  Didn't play particularly well, at least according to the scorecard.  It felt like I had longer clubs into the greens than I usually do, but I missed a ton left/right, indicating that I selected clubs well, hit them well, and just that's where they fell in my shot zone.

Day 24 (08 Jul 22) - rained at the beach last night, nice compacted sand.  Took the old 9i to hit sand shots off compacted as well as fluffed sand.   As it was crowded, the shots were limited to greenside bunker style up and downs.  One of my fave beach sand drills as it focuses on how much sand I need to grab based on the softness of the sand.

Day 252 - 9-hole league tonight (back 9); shot a 10-over 44 but generally played poorly (including a 4-putt on the 17th). Generally frustrating night.

    • They’ve acquired the #2 ranked player in the world and have held three tournaments with previously ranked ( DJ #18) PGAT players. How have they hamstringed LIV exactly?
    • Day 158.  Putting practice for 50 minutes.  6' drill for "make each twice" took me 53 putts.   Small sample size and all that, and I wasn't able to get more than two to fall in the second go-around (as in, made the putt both the first two go-arounds), so that number is higher.  But... I'm happy.  I then did 8 step, 10 step, 12 step, 14 step putting for distance.
    • I just read a post on another site which claimed that the 15 tourney minimum only applies to golfers who wish to have voting privileges on the PGAT. Does anyone know if that is indeed accurate? If that's true, could a player compete in less that 15 events and, if he earned enough points, still maintain their PGAT card for the next season and compete in the FedEx playoffs?
    • I did this challenge today: 1. 2 putt from 5' long    1pt 2. 2 putt from 12' long   1 pt 3. 2 putt from 15' long   1pt 4. 1 putt from 6'              2 pt 5. 2 putt from 18' long    1 pt. 6. 2 putt from 12' long     1 pt. 7. 2 putt from 15' short     -1 pt. 8. 2 putt from 18' long      1 pt.  9. 2 putt from 12' long      1 pt. 10. 2 putt from 5'               1 pt.    9 points. For all of the 2 putts except one, I left tap ins. All putts were from different directions on four different holes on the practice green Tough challenge, but will be good for my playing in the long rung because my first attempt reflects what I really do during a round. 
    • Thanks for the response, Fritz. I thought that players needed exemptions whenever they played events other than on the PGAT, regardless of whether it was opposite another PGAT tournament.  You are wrong, on both counts. If you knew me you would know that.  I'm most certainly not afraid of an argument, although it's an exercise in futility on internet message boards in almost all circumstances. Now, we could argue about which is more restrictive but I'll refrain from that debate as it would be fruitless. I can see both sides of this 'restrictive' debate and will leave it there.
