Day 482, February 24, 2024

45 minutes on slower downswings after JEP and a lesson. I can't let the grip get too slack or the results aren't quite as good, even though I'm going slower. The shaft tends to stand up a little bit in my pseudo-transition.

Day 2: 2/24/2024

I did backswing work without a club, with a piece of pvc and with a club in front of the 2 corner mirrors in the basement for 10 minutes today.

I also putted with the putting mirror and perfect putt today. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Day 74 (25 Feb 24) - Grabbed the TA 845s PW (48*) and the Indi GW (50*) for some closest to the pin backyard pitching fun.  Hit from 15 yds, 20 yds and 25+ yds.  Enjoyed the difference in technology of late 80’s vs 2023….better spin with the 50, really nice roll out with the 48….

Day 231: Range day! Hit balls for about 45 minutes - working on downswing stuff. Filmed a good amount, too. Still doing better with slow swings and not getting there with full-speed swings. Finished off with 10 driver swings. Not going full out with driver was really good. Going full out was a little more wild, but that's okay. Then went and putted for another 45 minutes or so. Filmed a bit there to check on some things. Productive day!

Day 55 - Some backswing and transition work. If I get the backswing right, my hips don’t turn. If I get the transition right, my backswing is abbreviated. Need to join the two together.

90 minutes with @DrizZzY this morning. Getting near the end of the slow downswing work. Going to start adding speed to it in March.

Day 75 (26 Feb 24) - At grandson’s request, we got the DivotBoard out this afternoon.  It’s fun working with him on making solid shots.  The board really shows when you fat or thin it, even got the missus to hit a few with her 7i.  Really like it when it’s a family drill session.

Day 4: 2/6/2024

I got a lot in today. I did my overspeed training. I also worked on my backswing in the basement mirror and then raced out to the garage to hit some balls into the net, trying to emulate the backswing stuff I did in the mirror. 

Later I played18 holes on a golf simulator. Which was fun.

    • Wind wreaked havoc.
    • Bruh. Simmer..😂
    • Yes, I listened to the first couple of seasons but just lost interest in the content .. I think they have proven as many of us already know it's really hard to get to scratch ... esp as we age ....  I was feeling confident in hitting my target this year of 5HC range(got to low 6s) but hit a wall in my short game in a few comps and now just over 9HC !!!! ...gutted but know it can go down just as fast esp during summer only 2-3 holes killing my score every round .. mental issues with one PAR3 at my local I think I've had a PAR on once in 20+ rds... I have great respect for anyone playing off low singles + golfers ...very impressive skills    I do wonder how playing different courses can help one's HC aspirations ... my local is well know tough greens and tight lies to bare sand pockets close to fairways/greens..  my closest 18 holes course I play at and score much better on average ..last three rounds +7 +6 +3 ..Vs my course best +6 with many much higher
    • Just turned on the TV. Damn.. cut at +6?? WTF happened? Wind? Greens?
    • I’m actively saying “miss it” or “ hit it in the water” on every Dechamblow shot. Can’t stand the guy and his phony scientist schtick.
