Day 139: 5/14/24

ProSendr indoor practice and completed the first 3 protocols. Wish the wrap was a little larger. I don’t think I could hit hit balls and have it stay on my wrist. With dry swings it does help me with proper backswing and wrist position.

Day 309: Putted on my mat for a while. Just focused on start line and making a stroke with no head movement. Seemed pretty good.

Day 14 (15 May 24) - Worked with the SW in the backyard, short pitches from 10yds up to 30yds.   Focused on ball placement in stance - ball back, ball forward, ball center.  Afterwards moved to inside the shop to work on putting pace on the rug - putting one way gives about an 8' putt, going the other a 6' before bumping onto the adjacent rug.  Focused there on the line - picking a target point about 18"-24" out and making sure the ball rolls through that point.

Day 11: practiced chipping at home. 

I may not hit the ball far, but at least I find all of the pretty flowers.

Day 140 5/15/24

Stack Training Full Speed Spectrum session 12/24. Second highest swing speed of this program, but 3 mph off my high and 8 off of all time high. Good session but PRGR radar must have missed 30 swings. Pretty heated near the end.

Played 18 holes with @rwolfe from the white tees. Arms up a bit more, then not lazy. Crushed a few, hit a few goofy ones.

Day 34:

Continued priority piece work, but more focused on the transition/shift part. Slowed it down and hit mostly 9-3 shots. A few full shots at the end.

Day 311: did a stack session. Then went to the range and did a session focused on slow, specific swings, working on my priority piece. Then went to the practice green and did a stack putting session. Good practice day!

Day 35:

Hit 10 balls working on top of the backswing into transition piece. Think I have arrived at a pretty good feel and initial feedback of start line and launch (where ball hits net) are pretty good. Need to do some work with Mevo+ and mirrorvision to make sure that I am actually getting where I am trying to be, and also that I haven't f'ed up something else.

    • Day 322: lighter day with some mirror work. Working on the downswing feels to get the hips more open. 
    • A flushed towering 152 yard 8-iron that never left the pin to a foot and a half on the 17th hole after a solid drive. The ensuing birdie putt completed our two man team match claw back to even after being four down through 10.  Tied 18th and the match but felt like a win.
    • A gross 6 under for a scramble is not that good. I would buy it. Our gross winning score is usually 17-18 under. First time I've heard of a handicapped scramble.
    • Absolutely. If my skills were reversed and I was a better putter than driver of the ball, I would have made that 8-footer. For double bogey  Mine is completely blind because it goes downhill starting basically right at the corner of the dogleg with the fairway sloping left to right. I know the line to take from experience, but just to give you an idea how it sets up, I hit directly over the two trees that the white line on my screenshot passes over, with a draw. I'm pretty sure my ball landed on the left side of the fairway. The safe way is to just hit it 220 to the corner and leave yourself just under 150 into a pretty large green, but there's very little reason not to be aggressive on this hole.
