Day 66. Short game practice, 100y and in. Better than yesterday but a ways to go.
 

Followed by working on impact technique. When I work on where the club ends up post impact, I seem to hit the ball much better. Feels like day to day incremental progress.

Day 15:  Practiced my swing, no hitting, just focused on all the feels. 

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

Day 67. Played my first 18 of the year. Not a great score but hit some really good shots for me. Highlights include a chip in for birdie, couple good drives, but even better for me a couple 6 iron approach shots landing on the green. Perhaps some of the practice is paying off 🙂

Day 2 - More grip and setup. Tried a few swing thoughts since the grip and setup stuff is complete once I start the backswing.

Worked on hips/trail leg feelat top of backswing. Hit a few balls but it was to dark to really judge results.

    • I've had a Mizuno stand bag as my back up bag for a few years. Use it every now and then. It's fine.
    • Dry weather golfer, I guess. I can do rain or cold independently but combo of rain and below 40 deg. weather same time will keep me out.   
    • I prefer playing in dry 60f weather, moderate cloud cover, with a little breeze. However, if the course is open my league plays. Therefore I have played in everything from snow to ridiculous heat, from Irish Sunshine to 20 mph wind! Not ideal, but it is what it is!
    • Dry Weather Golfer for casual rounds. A light rain is ok.  All Weather Golfer on tournaments. Bring it on! I love to play soccer on the mud or the beach under rain so golf with an umbrella is a piece of cake. Moreover this days were you can attach the umbrella to the cart. A month ago we had a rainy cold days for a 36 holes tournament. On the 1st day on hole 3 a guy on my group just quitted. The next day we were 4 again. One quitted at 9th, another at 11th and the last one lifted his ball at 12th and proceeded to walk with me to keep my scorecard until I finished the round. Respect to that guy.   25 years ago, on my teens, I even went out to play alone on heavy rain, without rain clothes or an umbrella and plenty of lightnings.. didn't know how crazy I was at that age.
