Day 542, April 26, 2024

A lesson no-show, no-called (he had the wrong time even though the last text was confirming the time… 😛), so I used 45 minutes or so of that time to get some good work in.

Day 134 (26 Apr 24) - played Minnesott today, worked with the mid-irons and approaches (especially the 7i).  Scoring was a little higher, but I was focused on making the needed adjustments to the swing to achieve desired distances.

Day 15:

Full swing work with a 6-iron. The recentering / transition feel is working well. Ball starting is a slight push and bleeding a bit right, but very playable (at least based on what I am seeing on Mevo+).

day 44 - slow deliberate swings into the net with a focus on weight shift and hand path. I might sneak out to the garage a few times through the day working on this but my hands are steering to blister lol

Day 122: 4/27/24

Supposed to be a Stack training day but I was beat after yard work today. Practiced chipping and putting at The Creek. The practice green is pretty slow but the session went well.

Day 135 (27 Apr 24) - played Bradford Creek today while waiting for the missus fly in from her extended visit with the grands.  Good day to stay focused as it was a hurry up (groups pressing from behind) and wait (groups taking their time ahead)…a good day to stay mentally in the game - play the shot and not get frustrated in the waiting…

Day 114 - Pretty busy day, but managed to squeeze in some mirror work. Focused on softer knees throughout the swing, with high hands in the backswing.

Day 16:

Same thing as yesterday but did it with driver and Almost Golf balls and no launch monitor info. Contact center-ish, a bit high on face and toward toe, I’d like start line to be less right.

Day 17:

Played 18. Had a hard time getting into an athletic mindset over the ball, and made a lot of uncommitted swings.

Day 45. Played 9 at my new club from the front tees. Driving needs to improve but I did get a birdie and score 45, which for me is great.

Day 136 (28 Apr 24) - Easy day - short low running pitches in the backyard with the 9i. Kept the distances to 20 yds or less.  Worked on getting the ball to finish at or just near target point.

    • With Sergio they played the whites, saying that they wanted a challenge and it would be too easy from the reds. If Bryson had played with Sergio on this course and this day instead of DT then they'd have gone quite a lot lower.
    • Day 8: did a stack session.
    • Gotcha. Don't remember it being that short in Paige episode (the only other one I watched in it's entirety), but to be fair I wasn't paying close attention to the hole lengths. 😜
    • Probably relative to the other courses he has played in the break 50 series. He's done them all from the front tees.
    • So this wasn't a bad watch. For a guy pushing age 80 he strikes the ball well. I mean, if I am doing what he is doing 30 years from now, count me in. Imma pass on that putting stroke though.... wow. That's saying something with my putting skills. Not making fun of it but it's almost like he had to keep the putter from falling out of his hands after impact every time. Not sure if that's a recent thing but it plays out like some neurological condition.   BDC claims 'it's a hard course' to break 50, and then proceed to play putt-putt tees with 320-yard par 5s.. lol. Dood drove almost every par 5 from the tee. Anyway, not exactly the 'greatest round of golf that has ever been played' as expectedly self-advertised by 45, but I've certainly seen worse by far.
