Day 4:

Worked on my setup adjustment using the patio door as a mirror. Still too fatigued from recent cold to have oomph to start The Stack speed training, and too dark to record swings.

Day 81 (10/13/22): Only had time for a very brief session today. It was hitting into the net. I started trying to just hit 3-9 o'clock shots, but was getting poor contact. So...I went back to preset drills, impact preset. Did about 30 of these and then slowly progressed to short swings.

Day 217.  Yesterday was the second miss in a 30 day window, but not the third, so I'm okay.

For today, I played 18 but really faltered at the end.  On par-5s today, I was four over, not very good.  Despite hitting only 2 GIR, I shot an 86.  I can't wait to figure out my SG values, but that has to wait for tomorrow.

Day 121 (14 Oct 22) - Busy day helping a good friend who recently lost her husband with the move to the new home they had purchased just before he passed.  Still got in some work on the setup process I have been doing of late.  Did experiment with ball placement - more forward, more back, in the middle.

Day 82 (10/14/22): About 15 minutes of short swings concentrating on impact position, followed by another 10 minutes of normal pitch and chip shots, just trying to groove swing length and contact. Followed this with a Stack system speed session.

Day 83 (10/15/22): I just hit balls for 15 minutes working on the downswing feel to get the right impact position. I followed it up with 18 sim holes. I played Scioto at 6200 yards and shot 74. Was not getting the best contact but was avoiding trouble and I made the best of birdie opportunities.

Day 219.  Thursday's round I hit some short irons quite poorly, so I decided today would be short irons day.  I did my usual practice routine with the tilt drill, but with an 8-iron instead of the 6-iron.   The goal was the usual practice and being more comfortable with a short iron.  I think I achieved the first part at least.

Day 84 (10/16/22): Last night's practice was on grip and set up, trying to fix this tendency I have to "drift" in my set up and grip. I seem to morph over time to having my hands too far in front of the ball at address, leading to a bad positioning of the shaft at the top of the swing. I worked on the address feel with different length clubs and different ball positions. I also played about 12 simulated holes, Royal Melbourne, on the sim. (Sorry again for a late post...fell asleep as soon as I hit the pillow.)

    • Lexi Thompson abruptly retiring from professional golf at 29 years old The reasons behind the surprising decision are unclear, though Thompson is expected to address the media on... I don’t find this surprising.
    • Oh man I had one today. Ball below and I still chilli dipped it!!
    • Playing Cog Hill #2 yesterday with @cedrictheo and @NatalieB… we get to the par-three 7th, a 185-yard (or 145-yard) par three. There's a St. Judge Million Dollar Shot challenge on the hole if you choose to participate. The rules: $20 entry Hit the green, get your $20 back. Hit it to ≤ 10 feet, get $50 back. Hit it to ≤ 3 feet, get $100 back. Hit it in the hole, get $10,000 back. (No, I don't know where the "million dollar" bit comes from). We all decline, though in hindsight I wish I had just given him $20 for our group and said "keep it, please." I step up… and hit it to 30". @cedrictheo steps up… hits it to about 40". @NatalieB steps up… and we both tell her how bad she sucks, how terrible she is, etc. because she hits it to about nine and a half feet. 😄  If we had all entered we'd have won between $110 and $140. Ha ha. (I'm still glad we didn't as that would have been TAKING money from charity.) Anyway, three really good shots on a tough hole. The guy running the challenge must have thought we were nuts. He said "Man, you guys really should have entered!" 😄
