Day 18, Range today because they have heated bays! I wanted to see if what I am working on in helping ball flight. I was pretty pleased. I did mostly slower swings to start but did do a few 80% swings. As long as I followed my feel, flight was a nice slight push with a little bit of curve. This was with wedge, 8 and 6 irons and driver. If I felt like I was swinging out from the top, I would pull or hook it, which didn’t happen much. The feel is  swinging down from the top and letting my right hand feel like its getting on top.

I couldn’t film because of space and it was dark and rainy.

Day 47 (02 Jan 23)  - Worked on engaging bounce with the SW today in the backyard.  Varied setup on ball - forward, middle, back - and lies - hard pan, tight and semi rough…

Since I technically missed posting yesterday’s work (see above) by failing to hit the submit reply button (2nd miss in the past 26 days), I’m starting over….

Day 01 (03 Jan 23) - Weather cooperates (70+ in Eastern NC in Jan) so the grandson and I played a quick front nine at RiverBend. Uses the round to work on swing tempo and shot strategy related to course management.  Also limited the clubs so I had to work based on typical distances I hit those clubs.  Love that type of challenge.  The grandson had a blast and said I was his favorite babysitter as I will take him to ply golf….think he has the golf bug 😁

Day 34: 1/3/2022

Chipping today. Set up 3 targets in the basement. Chipped balls with my 60 and my 54. 

Plan to do full swing and putting tomorrow. I should have a bit more time. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Day 2 (04 Jan 22) -  Worked on balance with the driver.  Started with easy swings feet together, then progressively widened the stance until I was at my normal width.  Also did some swings with most of my weight on my lead foot, trail foot behind on toe tip.  Has been a drill to reinforce confidence in the lead foot supporting my weight and rotation through the swing.

Day 20 - Slow motion swings indoors with my 9i. For each swing I was intentional about grip and stance, then slowly moving through the entire swing.

Day 3 (05 Jan 23) - More nice Jan weather, so got outside to work on the setup and initial takeaway.  Been working to keep the arms extended and not collapsing.  Hit a few hard foam balls with the 5i to finish out the drill.

Day 66, January 5, 2023

Good twenty minutes today before a lesson. I was looking forward to maybe 40 minutes… but he arrived early.

Day 36: 1/5/2023

Got to the range today and worked on my priority pieces first. I also hit some balls at targets just to see where my swing kind of is in terms of effectiveness. 
I finished with hitting pitch shots to a number of targets 30 to 90 yards away using the 60 and 54 degree wedges.

    • No, they will collect the "Stay & Play" cost at the Virtues on Sunday. I was a little surprised by that, I would collect on Saturday, but I guess the person doing the reservations & bills is located at the Virtues.  I think we can trust that none of us are going to run out on the bill and leave us in a lurch.
    • Thanks for following up. Since you're going to be booking the stay and play packages, does that mean you have to put up the money up front?
    • They're playing 16 games in each match though. Don't need much of an advantage before that number of players significantly loads things in their favor. The other team has to win 8.5 games to beat them. At a 65/35 split, that's a lot and pretty unlikely (about 10% of the time).
    • Why does the second sentence have to be true? If they're used to playing a tough course that's improperly rated, they're going to both have inflated indexes and have higher skills relative to them. If their home course features a variety of different challenges, I don't see why their game wouldn't travel well. And on the flip side, some courses and their members take pride in how hard their course is and how tough it's rated, and that bit of vanity ends up hurting them in these kinds of competitions.
    • I discussed it today but can call back and re-confirm.  I would love to be wrong on that point. Note: That may have been before they changed the hotel due to lack of room at Hampton Inn. Update on Friday Hotel: If I can give a count to EagleSticks they can get us a discount on Friday night at the hotel.  I do not have the $$ but should be much lower than the $249 the hotel quoted me. I do not have my list with me for the Friday hotels but if you want one, please post ASAP and I will get the rate and get them held. Thanks @billchao for catching this.
