Day 67, January 6, 2023

Messed around with my SuperSpeed Squeeze today. I'm exploring whether it can be used to help people understand wrist conditions in addition to understanding squeeze/grip "strength."

Day 37: 01/06/2023

Hit balls in the garage on 3 different occasions. Each session was about 15 minutes long and I worked on a different priority piece each time. 

I also spent time putting the devil ball. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Day 5 (07 Jan 23) - Spent some time working on the takeaway with the putter by setting up a ball about 18” behind to help focus one taking the club straight back, barely tapping the back ball and coming smoothly thru the ball.  Then went totally opposite with some full swings with the 7i in the backyard.

Day 68, January 7, 2023

Mostly did full-speed swings today as a sort of check-in. Still felt a little bit "hold off-y" but contact was decent. Backswing is likely decent. Going to give it another week and then focus mostly on the downswing.

Day 38: 1/7/2023

Worked in the garage on my priority pieces. I kind of have 3 that I'm working on. Today I experimented with trying to incorporate all three at once. It didn't go that well. To be honest it wasn't terrible. But I'm still much better off working them one at a time. I'll spend the next few days continuing to work on them one at a time. Late next week or next weekend I'll get to the indoor range and get some video. 

Right now I'm going to get up and do my speed swing training.

Day 6 (8 Jan 23) -  pitches and chips in the backyard this afternoon.  Used it to setup the club with the ball on the outside line of the grooves.  Then purposed to swing to strike with the center of the club face.  Ended with working the other side by aligning the ball to the inner line on the club face.

Day 69, January 8, 2023

Good slow-mo stuff today on the backswing. Maintaining the wrist cup on the backswing is big for me.

Day 39: 1/8/2023

Today I worked on my backswing in the mirror and hit some balls in the garage working on my priority pieces. 

Pretty busy day today so that was all I could get in.

Day 7 (9 Jan 23) - Worked on hitting the club face consistently with the driver, 3w, 4h and 6i today.  Went the foot spray route (see pics) in the backyard using the hard foam balls. End results - was getting too high on the driver face, but was happy that all 4 swings were in the same general spot.  With the 3w and 4h I was staying more in the face center. No horrible slices or pushes.  The recent work on setup looks to be helping me have some of the most consistent contact in terms of hitting the same area of the club face to date.

Day 24 - Worked on some short wedge shots in the yard today with my 54* and 59* wedges. Set an alignment rod 5 paces from where I was hitting from to represent the edge of the green and a towel 2-paces from the alignment rod to represent my landing spot. Hit short shots aimed at the landing spot, but in no event shorter than the alignment rod. Will be working on lots of shots of this sort as I had a problem with leaving these shots short in 2022.

    • Thanks phillyk - that I think ties reasonably well to when the intent would be to stop. It's also possible that long drivers would have their stuff shifted a little from tour players who have different goals in their swings than hitting it as hard as possible.
    • Day 77. Technique work into the net. Pretty tired from a long day at the Canadian open so not my best movement. 
    • Some graphs from Dr Kwon’s research. I have these posted up at my golf school.  Dark Blue line is arms. You can see it maxes angular velocity in between p2 and p3, in this graph.   Right foot pressure maxes at approximately the same time. These graphs are an average of the pros he has measured. 
    • I agree, if you played by the rules, with someone else, in an acceptable format, post the scores.  If you want an official response, you should be able to write to your state golf association .
    • If you have the scorecards and the dates that you played, I would post them.  I don't know what the "official" right thing to do is, that's just what I would do. The main reason you're supposed to post on the day you play is so that the PCC (if applicable) can be applied because I believe those are only applied when you post scores the day that you play them.
