Day 64 (17 Aug 22) - played 18 with son and grandson today.  Good day in course management and adjusting to super soft conditions.  Wedge play was very solid, irons/long clubs so so.

Day 10:

Skipped practice yesterday due to friends in town that I haven't seen in awhile. Today did some work with 7-iron on getting correct backswing depth, and hit a few balls.

Also tried the "makeable putts" game, albeit indoors on a rug, with a golf ball as the hole.

Day 24: This morning's practice was slow motion "swings," more like serial posing, stopping at A2, then A4, then rehearsing the transition move dropping the club, shallowing the shaft, and motorcycling slightly. Then move down to club horizontal (P6), impact, then follow through. I did it in front of a mirror for some of the swings. After a few minutes, I tried combining the move to the top and the transition into one move. At the very end of the session, I, I hit a couple of foam balls. (When I do a correct transition with shallowing, my brain thinks I'm going to shank the ball...which I probably will, for a while, if I can manage to get this integrated into my swing. Hence the foam ball practice. I didn't shank any of the foam balls.) Breaking down these components, by far the hardest one for me when actually swinging and not moving though poses is getting from the transition to P6.

Day 32: 8/18/2022

My practice had been really good lately, but today I couldn't quite get it right. 
Worked on my priority pieces with the 6-iron and never really got into a groove. I did my usual things but I didn't feel as though I was getting my usual results. 
Switched to working priority pieces with the driver and had similar issues. It just wasn't quite right. 

I did do the "makeable putts" challenge twice and one of them I did pretty well. I got a 31. So there's that.

Day 165.  I gave myself a practice session of about 15 minutes and about a dozen balls to clear my mind between reading drafts of a paper of mine that's due soon.  My usual rehearsal steps and indoors and so on.

Got to the range today. Worked mostly on my driver. Only hit like 30 balls. Took me about an hour. 

Then I headed over to the putting green to do the "Makeable Putt Challenge".

Day 166.  Another dozen, same as the past few days.

This has been a long week at work, and I'm glad for this challenge because without it I might make an excuse to not hit any balls, and I'm still glad I did the normal practices.  I acknowledge I'm not varying it very much the past week.

Day 25: Today I played a simulated round. The warm up was focused on my transition move, trying to shallow the club and have it not get more deep and behind me. I decided to “play” the round and commit to swinging that way even if I missed the ball. The goal was to work on the move even during a round, even though I know it wasn’t a real round. The scoring was terrible as I had alot of difficulty hitting the ball solid. Path was too much in to out but face angle was less shut to path than usual.

    • Wordle 468 4/6 ⬜⬜⬜🟨⬜ 🟩🟨⬜🟨⬜ 🟩⬜🟩⬜🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 forgot to post this yesterday Wordle 469 2/6 🟩🟩🟩⬜⬜ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 started to get excited as the 1st three filled in on my 1st guess😀
    • Equalled my personal best today shooting 80. Needed a par on the last for 79 but caught my approach heavy and needed an up and down for par. The chip just didn’t roll out as much as I wanted so I missed my par put by a couple of inches.  On the plus side I shot my first ever double bogey free round and first ever no sixes round (I thought this would have me breaking 80 but too many bogeys) I must head over and claim my badges 👍
