Day 41 (27 Dec 22) - Played an afternoon 18 with grandson at Minnesott.  Course had thawed from the cold snap that started last Friday.  Good afternoon noon of steady pace as we were the only ones on our side of the course.

Day 27: 12/27/2022

Backswing in the mirror work today. 
Basically I did my backswing a few times in slow motion without a club. 
Then with a club across my collarbone. Then with a piece of 3/4" PVC pipe and split hands. Finally with a club. 

Rinse and repeat.

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Day 28: 12/28/2022

So I got to the indoor range today around 5AM and spent some quality time working on my priority pieces. 
I took some video and used that for personal feedback to compare feels to reals. 

Then I did my new favorite putting drill for speed control. 

Finished up with some chipping practice and headed out of there. 

A really good practice session this morning.

Day 29: 12/29/2022

Went to the indoor range early this morning again.

Worked on my priority pieces. I felt very stiff and slow, but got good work in. I filmed my swing from both down the line and caddie view. I sent those to Yoda. I also got some nice chipping work in and then I did a putting drill. I did the drill off the putting green because I found that the area in front of the nets is a faster surface. Since nobody else was there at this time I was able to use that area for my putting practice. Here's a time lapse video of my first attempt of the day at the putting drill. I got better at it with subsequent attempts.

I do not recall you walking that fast last time we golfed.  Looks a little like an old Charlie Chaplin movie.  Is that part of the drill? 😜

Day 59, December 29, 2022

Quick practice session today, because the stupid GEARS sync thing via "Task Scheduler" didn't seem to want to run on its own for whatever reason. Worked fine at home.

Day 30 ... Woo-Who! ... : 12/30/2022 

I got to the range early again this morning. 5AMish.

I started with my priority pieces. Then worked on my video taking skills. I'll review what I shot later on. 

Then, I chipped to several targets for about 15 minutes. Then I worked on short pitch shots for about 15 minutes. 
Next, I did Eric's speed control putting drill. I used the area in front of the nets for this drill as it is a faster surface. 
Then over at the actual putting green I used the the putting mirror for about 10 minutes. 

Finally, I finished with the putting ladder drill to an actual hole for about 10 - 15 minutes.

Day 44 (30 Dec 22) Spent some time working with the putter.  Did the side-by-side drill (where I set two balls beside each other) and put them at the same time.  Helps with squaring the putter - get heely and the closest ball shoots out ahead, get toey and the outer ball takes the the lead.   I like the challenge of the drill.  Also worked on pacing the putts.

    • What brand is it? Are there actually items you can't buy online? If you want the Chinese stuff. I'd look closer to home first, even if they are also made in China. Some of the Temu stuff is stupid cheap and I'm not buying it.
    • For anyone in Europe, it seems they still got grips in stock here:  Puregrips   I may just order some myself. Having used only the Pure Pros I'm tempted to order DTX.
    • Day 323: another light day. Just putted on my mat for a bit. Working on start line and a good stroke. 
    • Day 143 - Made some swings working on shallow hands in the backswing, a good weight shift, and more hip turn in the downswing. 
    • Day 46: Really struggled today, maybe some fatigue from a long weekend with lots of yard work, family time, and two early rounds of golf. I just could not find the ball at all with full swings. Slow, fast, super slow, medium speed, it didn't matter. I was hitting all sorts of terrible shots; chunks, shanks, tops, pulls, pushes, basically every miss was a possibility. Stopped after about 20 balls and hit the mental reset and changed course to "still head" fundamental practice while making easy swings. Hit the ball well doing this. Stuck with it for about 15 balls, and then did a little pitching and chipping practice.
