Day 6: yet more drills for the arms.  Also pulled out my PRGR monitor and tried @ 10 swings. Not a speed train session but more of a stress test to see what the foot could handle.

Day 1:

My back yard is finally dry for the most part after a very wet winter (hope we're through the majority of rains). I was able to get outside the last two weekends and do a bunch of yard cleanup and tidying, including setting up my practice area. Bought a Net Return to replace a Spornia net which is completely falling apart (which replaced a Rukket that didn't fair any better). I am looking into new mats as well, as mine is worn out where it matters.

Been practicing intermittently when weather allows, but haven't been able to commit significant amount of time to work on priority pieces from lessons. As a result my golf game is going the wrong direction, so I am going to try to get a practice streak going again.

Today I worked indoors on a backswing piece from my lesson 2 months ago, and then worked outdoors on a palmar flexion transition piece from my lesson last month hitting Almost Golf balls with a 5-iron. Don't have my next lesson scheduled, so plan is to put in 2-3 weeks of work on the current piece before seeing teacher again. Will also get back into The Stack and Fit for Golf starting next week.

Day 47: 4/10/2024:

Got to the range today. Worked on my priority pieces with a 6 iron. Then spent some time trying to hit targets again. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Day 106: 4/11/24 Masters First Round 

Stack Full Speed Spectrum training session 22/24 for this program.

2 mph shy of my high speed. Had to practice in the garage due to rain. Footing was a little slippery at times. Still had some high swing speeds, but was inconsistent with 195 grams with 7 mph variance in speed.

Day 527, April 11, 2024

Got some work in before a lesson showed up early. Not as much work as I wish I could get in, but 15 solid minutes.

Day 119 (11 Apr 24) -  Played 18 at Minnesott today - what started off let’s have fun with gusting winds with the threat of rain to gusting winds and steady rain.  As I made the turn on the back nine, I had thought about calling it but stuck it out.  Actually it was a good exercise in persevering, just not something I would do every day.

Day 99 - Was feeling better today, but opted to take it easy to get ready for a tournament Saturday. Made some easy swings into a net; PRGR had my swing speed about where it normally is.

    • Day 172: 6/12/24 Chipping with a variety of clubs trying to simulate Pinehurst. Had a lot of fun.
    • I can use those, but let's get really picky about the right camera angles. And about taking up a good amount of the frame.
    • I am not sure how much rain they got recently, but it is going to be in the low to mid 90's at Pinehurst, and SUNNY!. That course is going to be firm fast and probably very difficult. It will probably get more difficult into the weekend. I suspect a lot of close tee shots end up in the waste land area, and the greens are going to be brutal. This will not be a soft course. 
    • Finally back to my Evolvr lessons.  I was not happy with some of what I saw in the below.  I am happy that I seem to have stopped holding my right arm against my body but I think I am hitting the ball well before my hip turn.  At first I thought maybe that was because I was tired and the foot was hurting but a couple days latter I had a friend shoot a video of me at my league on the very 1st shot, well rested and not hurting, and I did the same thing.  So I am not thinking it is a more common issue for me.  It will be interesting to hear the official comments. (FYI, I know the dates show different but that was typo, both videos are form June 8th)
