Day 16:12/12/2023

I got some nice work in at the outdoor range today. 

Worked on a thing where I slide my rib up a wall. ... Well, not literally. ...

Got some nice work in with my wedges as well. 

I still plan to do my overspeed training tonight. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Day 407, December 12, 2023

Practiced for 30 minutes or so. Backswing, mostly, with a little tiny bit of slow downswing stuff just to layer it in. But 90% of the attention was backswing, and it got a lot of rehearsals.

Day 4 (13 Dec 23) - Easy swings with the 7i today.  Worked on tempo and wrapped up with purposed shot shaping using hard foam balls.  Hitting from across the way, I can use the tulip tree as a target to go around or over.  Worked on shaping a fade, a draw and straight shot around and over the tree.

Day 408, December 13, 2023

30 minutes downtown doing a lot of backswing work but mixing in the dash of downswing work. Hit more 9I than 6I today, I think, or very close to it.

Day 17: 12/13/2023:

Did my overspeed training first thing this morning. Forgot to do it yesterday. ... oops.

Then on lunch I swung by the outdoor range and worked on some stuff. Mostly my piece where I slide my rib up a wall. But also dropping my rear and pushing it away in the downswing. 

I finished by hitting some targets with wedges. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs.
