Day 586, June 11, 2024

Caddied all day yesterday (36), so hit a few pitch shots back to my player when he was warming up. That was over five minutes so I'm counting it.

Today… I played 18 holes at Whispering Woods. Front nine was exaggerated practice (hit some REALLY spectacular shots), back nine was really really solid playing with two birdies and almost nothing else that could have caused a bogey.

Day 3:  Spent a couple hours at top golf.  The woman’s pw was so short and heavy compared to mine, weird.  

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

Day 89. Did a Stack Cruiser session after a long break and crushed my previous best. Have been working out with kettlebells recently and that plus the evolvr technique work have really helped I guess. 

Then I did some technique practice. Went back to practicing setup using feels from the 30 day practice plan day 22 videos. Felt so much more comfortable over the ball.

Day 60:

Lesson today, and then spent some time later working on piece from lesson (stop dumping the clubface early). This one feels hard, and is going to force me to also  work harder on grip, which can get real palmy in lead hand.

Day 4:  Putting and practice with my irons this morning at home.  

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

Day 90. Played 9 before work. Speed did not translate onto the course. Learned a couple things about my direction though and had fun. Hit a couple good shots and a few not so good. Need to learn to save the doubles and triples and turn them into bogeys.

Day 42 (12 Jun 24) - The resort where we’re staying has a sweet 9 hole putt putt course…what better way than to roll the ball on some decent artificial greens that are not greased lightning but also not humpy lumpy. Able to work on pace and lagging of the ball to the cup with decent success …..and still lost to my grandson by 3 strokes….such is life!

Day 61:

Worked on priority piece using 5-iron with half swings, making sure grip was good before each swing. Lots of rehearsals. Initially ball starting right and curving right, so once I’m comfortable with the concept I’ll need to incorporate face/path work to get ball flight on target.

Played 18 holes with Sculley. Some really good shots in there. I'm doing the right things, and it's coming together.

    • I'm an all weather golfer. Luckily in my part of the Bay Area, it never get's much hotter than mid-70s, and the only humidity fog, so I don't have to deal with hot and humid weather. Most of the year I only have time to play once a week, and it's my weekly psychological break from the daily experience of work/parenthood so I hate to miss it. The only thing that really gives me pause is high winds, because my home course has tons of trees, and quite a few are diseased/dying. Often times when I am out playing and the weather is really shitty I will momentarily question my decision to play, but I rarely regret it.
    • I can't really vote. I'll play in 50° if it's even a little sunny and not pouring. I'll play in 90°. I generally won't play when it's pouring, ridiculously windy, or > 100° or below about 40°.

    • 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.
