Day 82: Sep 10

Golf lesson, focusing on Continuing to improve my clubpath & clubface control. It’s getting there for sure - I can focus and deliver an accurate clubpath, but I leave the face open. So been working on over exaggerating the right moves, both during the lesson and later practicing into a net.

Day 17:

Played 18 - tied a personal best with 76. Everything felt sharp, but kind of fumbled the ball on the goal line with 3-putt bogeys on #17 and #18.

Worked on things in the hotel room after getting back from a 36-hole day with the college team. Big mirror in my room is nice!

Day 65: Played 18 in a state mid-am qualifier. Missed qualifying by 6, but I fought on the back 9 and broke 80, so I’m pleased. Ball striking was excellent, putting was bad.

Day 18:

Continued working on downswing feel hitting balls with 3-iron. Also did some backswing work focusing on hinging a bit earlier and getting deeper hip turn.

Afterward did a Fit for Golf workout, and a little pitching practice to cool down.

Day 130 - Finally got back to the range, wedges and irons were great, driver wasn't. Battling the weird toe ball snap hook.

It started improving towards the end when I focused on left forearm priority piece. 

Going to keep working at it this week in prep for a tournament on Sunday.

Did The Stack session tonight too.

Day 316, September 12, 2023

Played nine holes, then went to the range to specifically work on the driver. Just have to really exaggerate one of the things.

    • Day 92- Short, slow swings with short practice club. 
    • Day 65: 3/1/24 Putting and chipping indoors during an all-day rain.
    • Day 488, March 1, 2024 Went downtown and worked for two hours. Starting to add some speed to the downswing move. Got the Quad out for the last little bit… Swing speeds were 93 MPH when I was going nearly full speed (6I), path ranged from +2 to +5.5. AoA was occasionally -5°, but sometimes +1.5°… because I've been doing so much work with my arms I just have to spend a little time on my legwork and collarbones staying "in" the shot a little. I could deliver -4 to -5° pretty consistently when I thought about it a little. Smash was 1.3 on the "bad" ones to 1.4 on the good ones. Launch was a bit high, but that tracked along with the AoA of course. That stuff I'm not worried about. Again, it's just remembering to use my lower body correctly. Very pleased with today's results. I spent much of the time at 83 MPH or so.
    • Day 236: played 18 holes. Started off well, finished terribly. But hit a lot of good shots, and my best shots were really good. 
    • FWIW, I ordered something else from them and the items were delivered yesterday. Great prices on what I purchased. As soon as package arrived, I again deleted the app and unsubscribed yet again.
