Day 40 - Pre-putt routine work today. Focused on keeping my eyes on the line, not freezing over the ball and starting with a trigger.

Day 90, January 29, 2023

Good 30 minutes today. Nearing the end of the "backswing" work. Might extend it for a little bit with some HackMotion work to Valentine's Day.

Day 59: 01/29/2023

I'm still working on backswing work. Been doing it a lot in the mirror. Today mostly slow motion, but I also used the pvc pipe and the no club thing. Gotta get myself more video soon. 

 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Day 19/20 jan 29: got feedback from my evolvr submission and spent 5-10 minutes watching it working more on my setup with the wall. Plan to spend a lot of time the next little bit doing it. I’m finding it difficult

Day 29: Mirror work again. Same thing as the past few days - grip, A2, and speedier in the early backswing.

Day 20/21 Jan 30, 2023: Have spent time today getting into proper setup a couple inches from the wall and in front of a mirror. Had a bit of an aha moment where it took a bit of a different routine to get into posture. Instead of standing and then bending at my waist, stood like normal then kinda shifted forward to ensure my weight was on the balls of my feet and then bent. Kept the butt off the wall and kept me balanced differently. Now I gotta make that stick,

Day 60, Jan 30, 2023

I did mirror work combined with running to the garage to try to recreate the feel I would have in the mirror. 

I also reviewed my recent videos of my swing.

Dude, I know you mean priority piece, but I am far too immature to read that you've been focusing on your PP and not giggle. 🤣

Day 61, January 31, 2023

I had a good day of practice today. Got to the range and worked on my priority pieces (PP...🤪). I did mostly block practice with my 6 iron before switching to some random practice trying to perform the same swing with the same focus on priority pieces with my wedge, my 5 wood and my driver. 

Then I spent about 20 minutes hitting lob and/or sand wedge to a number of different targets from about 20 yards up to just under 100 yards. 

Later, I happened to be visiting a customer out near a Golf Galaxy so I went inside and test drove a couple of drivers. That was fun, but nothing impressed me enough to feel I'd need to make a switch. I hit the Callaway Paradigm, The Cobra AeroJet, and a couple of the new Titleist offerings. I maybe hit 5 balls with each.

Day IVIII:

This morning, sheltered from the frosty New England winter in my humble abode, I endeavored to continue my journey to become more skilled at this beautiful yet frustratingly painful game known the world around as ‘Golf’. Using slower motions, I labored on my motus prioritas, priority movement in layman’s terms, to improve the repeatability of the proper hand, arm, torso coordination needed to effectively deliver the club face to that tiny dimpled orb. I labored for the better part of one quarter of an hour.

Henceforth, I will reference this athletic labor as ‘working on my MP’, so as not to illicit mirthful reactions from our 7th grade level membership who attended primary and secondary educational institutions in the greater Chicago Metropolitan Area.

Day 42 - Since I can't top @boogielicious's erudite description of his practice today, I won't even try, LOL.

Busy day today so just a few minutes putting practice (mostly on pre-putt routine) and chipping with my 49* wedge and an AlmostGOLF ball.

    • Cycling to a golf course definitely adds an adventurous twist to the game. To make it feasible, consider paring down your gear and opting for lightweight equipment. Investing in a bike rack designed for golf clubs can also help ease the transportation process. Planning your route carefully and allowing for extra time can ensure a smooth ride to the course.When it comes to protecting your bike and gear, bicycle insurance is essential. Considering the investment in both your bike and golf equipment, it's wise to have coverage for unexpected events. You can explore bicycle insurance uk to find a policy that fits your needs.
    • Are these one putt percentages? Even if those three buckets between 12 and 30 feet are all 1 for 2, that's high. 3 for 6 from 12 to 30 feet is a serious outlier. The others could be: 15/16 6/11 7/12 5/13 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/9 67 putts total, which is probably 2 rounds? My rough shot at strokes gained for that lot would be: -0.6 + -2.8 + 0.0 + 0.5 + 0.5 + 0.8 + 0.9 + 0.0 = -0.7 (PGA Tour baseline). Over two rounds that's pretty good and extremely good for a 15 index baseline. I'd think a 15 index would be expected to be somewhere in the -6 over two rounds. And that's with 3-6ft killing you.
