Day 47:

30 balls this evening.

Started with 7-iron and hit 5 balls, full swing, moderate speed, focusing on still head. I think I have been overdoing a hip feel from my priority piece, so I simply stopped trying to feel that thing. Contact was good, 2/5 balls were a touch fat.

Next did some short game work. Really focusing on good contact with short game shots. I don't have much time to practice short game at an actual practice facility, but I figure if I can make good contact, that will lead to some improvement. Did 10 balls with more of a chipping motion, but more of a 80% chip / 20% pitch shot. Then 10 balls of full pitch shots.

Finally finished with 5 more balls with 7-iron, same as the first 5.

Might do some indoor putting later, not sure.

Day 574, May 30, 2024

18 holes. The front nine was a worst ball scramble from the white tees. We didn't use a lot of my shots, so that's good.

Day 12 - Think I slept on my left arm or something last night, it's been hurting all day. No club, but worked on setup, grip and some short, slow swings with a tube.

Day 27:  Still nursing my shoulder so more putting practice.  

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

Day 29 (30 May 24) - Played weekly play the best drive nine hole scramble with my friends.  Was a fun round working as I put the old MacGregor irons and Penna persimmons in play.  Love the extra level of concentration required to make good contact with the clubs.

Day 78. Played 18. Hit a couple good shots but overall was not happy with how I was playing. Narrow course and my ballstriking just wasn’t good enough.

Day 575, May 31, 2024

Played about five holes without a distraction today, and about 13 while my mind was elsewhere and on the taps on my wrist and the messages I was sharing with @Hardspoon and… just generally being annoyed about what was happening.

But I played pretty well for the five holes.

    • 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)
