Day 15, did some really slow swings to work on my PP. I felt yesterday that when speeding up, I regressed a little bit.

Day 60, December 30, 2022

Worked with a student on GEARS and his daughter earlier today, then got some work in while waiting for Natalie to show up so I could let her in and head out. Filmed a video, too, when I was done showing how luck plays a role in making even a 22' putt.

Day 31: 12/31/2022

Once again, I was at the indoor range early.
Started with my priority pieces. Then worked on some extra priority pieces ... kind of an old one that's come back again. 

I did the @iacas putting distance control drill from 15 feet into a 6 foot target area today. 
That took me a little while to get it. My score was like 20 something. 

Finished up with the ladder putting drill on the practice green. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Day 45 (31 Dec 22) - Received a challenge from the grandson to see who could hit a hole-in-one in the backyard.  We set up about 30 paces and emptied the shag bag on the ground.  He was hitting more of a chip while I was hitting pitches.  End result  - we both had a ball to finish about 4” from the hole literally side-by-side.  Was a fun way to practice around the green style shots while hanging with grandson for the last 5 min daily challenge of 2022….

Day 16 - Nice day today, so I did some block practice hitting chip and run shots with my 9-iron in the yard. Not much run, but I could work on the strike and see where the ball landed.

Day 32: 1/1/23

Went to the indoor range again today. Worked on mostly my priority pieces.

I also did a lot of chipping and some work on pitch shots. 

I didn't do any putting today. Tomorrow is probably going to have a lot of that. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs.

Day 1 - Just spend 5 minutes working on gripping the club. Working on getting the club more the fingers of my left hand, as well as strengthening the right hand. Feels weird, and I need to keep cleaning this up.

Day 17 - Putting practice on my PuttOUT mat and trainer. Worked on speed of short putts (1' to 6') by stroking the putt at such a speed that it returns at least 12" but no more than 18".  First in order followed by random.

    • Is Rory McIlroy close to joining LIV Golf in a $850m U-turn? While all eyes were on the Masters this week, a rumour that won’t go away was growing louder: that... Really hope this story isn’t true. Ugh.
    • We have too many casual 'fans' anyway. Good riddance.  All hail King Sceff, repeller of the casual fan! Heh heh.
    • Ok, got a range session in. The results were either shank (like 3 shots) or flushed shots. 🤣🤣🤣 The goals were… Swing easily, it’s been a while Focus on the pause and hands stuff. Just swing, don’t stand over the ball forever.  Shanks were from not doing the hands stuff right.  I think focusing on hands down faster, is going to save my back. I don’t need to shallow with the body, which is spine crunching for me.  Ball flight was neutral really. Either a slight push to slight draw.  Also, shallow divots! 
    • A few interesting things to share. I recently finished my 4th protocol, which was neural drive. My speeds generally went down: I did have to get a new radar device during this, so it could be the result of 2 different devices (although still the same system). Still, I was surprised. I took a week off to give my body a bit of rest before starting the next protocol. I'm doing full speed spectrum again. After this one, I might switch to the cruiser protocol for a bit, which is a creative protocol instead of the normal protocols. We'll see when I finish (probably June), and what I'm thinking then.   Another thing is that I've switched from the swing speed radar. FlightScope recently updated their software and Mevo's firmware so that Mevo can be used as a swing speed device. I have a Mevo (not a Mevo+), so I decided to give it a try. I've used it for 2 sessions. I'm actually a little disappointed in it. First, it's a little annoying to set up at first - updating the firmware was a pain because the app kept crashing. I use a second iOS device (iPad) for the Mevo, and it wouldn't work well without the second device. The stack app hasn't been updated to reflect that the Mevo is available, so I don't know if that's causing any issues. Most importantly, I don't think the Mevo is all that accurate with the swings. Around maybe 20% of the time, I'm getting misreads or no readings. For a misread, I mean around 10 mph under what I would expect. That doesn't happen when using the Mevo with actual balls. Mevo does miss shots occasionally, but this is significantly more frequent than that. I'm going to keep using it and see how it changes.  The easy answer is to get a Mevo+, I know, but the biggest issue with a Mevo+ is that it won't work with my indoor set up. I don't have enough room in my garage at the moment for enough ball flight.
