Day 43: 1/12/2023

I'm kind of doing some of the same things each day right now. Working on my full swing in the garage and putting with my devil ball. Today I got in the garage 4 times to work on my priority pieces. Each session is probably no more than 10 to 15 minutes tops, but I like getting out there a couple of times per day. 

Then I spent about 10 minutes putting 6 footers with the devil ball. I made 2 of them. Hitting the devil ball on a 6 footer is not lay up. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Day 3:

 

Went to the club range and spent 15 balls very deliberately setting up properly. After that, I noticed in my video I took yesterday that my pivot was sloppy and not what Erik taught me last year so I did about 15 minutes where I would do the pivot drill he gave me twice, then swing slowly and hit the ball. Then I worked on the rope drill for another 10 minutes. I was done practicing and as I was walking off the range the head of the greens committee invited me to play with him so I did for fun. After all rain the course was very sloppy so we didn't keep score but I did get 4 pars in 9 holes. Not bad considering.

Day 44: 1/13/2023

Today I worked on hitting balls in the garage net in slow speed. Pretty much trying to combine some of my priority pieces. Then later I went to the indoor range and took video of my swing. I found that 2 of the 3 priority pieces I've been working on looked pretty okay. So, tomorrow I'll focus on the one that still needs work and then take some more video. Rinse and repeat.

Day 74, January 13, 2023

Window had a hole in it, so got about five minutes of work in downtown, then about ten at home. It's cold. 🙂

Day 28 - Did Bruce Rearick's vision test today, which showed that in my current setup, my perception was that the line moved to the right. By moving closer to the call and standing taller, I perceived the line to be straight at the hole. Will continue doing this test.

Day 45: 1/14/2023

Got in a lot of practice this morning at the indoor range. I started out focusing on one particular priority piece which "feels" like its lagging behind the other. I did a lot of slow motion swings hitting the ball at what to me felt like 40% (so it was probably like 75%). I spent a lot of time on that, then I did some filming of my swing. 

After that I worked on chipping for about 15 minutes. Chipping to several targets, but mostly working on my technique. Letting the club almost drop into the ground and keeping the shaft slightly more vertical than I'd normally like. 

I hit some pitch shots then finished up with @iacas's putting speed control drill. (What a great drill BTW). Today I did it from 12 feet into a 6x4 foot box. Took me a while to get the first one. But then I was about to repeat it after only 7 balls. 👍😁👍

That's good. I have a hard time making it look right, but if I get out over it too much it definitely looks left.

Long day. Juniors + a junior golfer after that. So, mirror work in the morning when I got there… after looking at the hole in the window. It'll be fixed Monday or Tuesday.

    • Day 322: lighter day with some mirror work. Working on the downswing feels to get the hips more open. 
    • A flushed towering 152 yard 8-iron that never left the pin to a foot and a half on the 17th hole after a solid drive. The ensuing birdie putt completed our two man team match claw back to even after being four down through 10.  Tied 18th and the match but felt like a win.
    • A gross 6 under for a scramble is not that good. I would buy it. Our gross winning score is usually 17-18 under. First time I've heard of a handicapped scramble.
    • Absolutely. If my skills were reversed and I was a better putter than driver of the ball, I would have made that 8-footer. For double bogey  Mine is completely blind because it goes downhill starting basically right at the corner of the dogleg with the fairway sloping left to right. I know the line to take from experience, but just to give you an idea how it sets up, I hit directly over the two trees that the white line on my screenshot passes over, with a draw. I'm pretty sure my ball landed on the left side of the fairway. The safe way is to just hit it 220 to the corner and leave yourself just under 150 into a pretty large green, but there's very little reason not to be aggressive on this hole.
