Day 41

Indoor putting practice because it got too dark to practice outside. I kept the distance at around 3-6 feet.

Day 40.  Throughout the day, hit about 40 full swing shots (including rehearsal, etc).  Indoors, off a mat, into a net, mostly real balls, sometimes foam.  Focused on level pelvis in setup.  Hit most of them well, so pretty much all the good shots I could have hit on the course over the weekend happened in my house today.

Day 230

Did a little Planemate stuff with and without a ball working on hip/core turn.

Then hit 20 balls with my 55* wedge using 9-3 swing really focusing on clearing hips.

Finally hit another 20 balls with an 8-iron with full swings, same focus.

Day 67 - Back to my Evolvr drills, really focusing on a straighter trail arm in my backswing. I would love to film tomorrow, it’s been a few weeks.

Day 150 - Worked on the same pieces as yesterday for about 30 minutes. Very muggy and I sweat like Kevin Youkilis.

Day 8:

24 minute golf work out session.

In rotation i did the following

Stretching, hamstrings, back, shoulders & neck

2 sets of 10 cross arm swing drill

2 sets of 10 Driver drill

2 sets of 10 sklz tempo grip trainer

2 sets of 10 sklz gold flex

utilized the izzo swing trainer band

Note: on Friday i had expanded the sklz sets to 3 sets of 10.  It felt great but by Sunday i was paying a heavy toll.  My right shoulder gave out on the back nine.  I have decided to stick to 2 sets of 10 durring the golf season.  When the off season hits i will expand then.

Day 231

Superspeed workout.

Did more practice focusing on hip/core rotation. Did Covid-19 day-5 pump drill, 9-3 swings, and full swings.

Started to feel something new; when hips get open it feels like the club is being delivered late to the ball. Not sure if this is good or bad. Need to record it and send to my instructor.

Day 20:  Range again.  Just tried to focus on stance and posture.  Worked on clubs throughout the bag.  Felt great with irons, as soon as a hybrid or something longer got in my hands, i had no clue where it was going.  Need to get some stance vids and pictures up in the swing thread.  See how that is progressing. And then move on to Lesson 3 in Hogan's book.  Have a feeling I'll be on that lesson for a good long while.

Day 41.  Busy day, but still found time to hit about twenty balls, same routine as yesterday (indoors, into a net, focusing on setup).

Day 21:  Played 18 this morning.  Its almost like I'm just not that great at golf.  Going to keep working on it. After my first 4 drives were ugly slices right, I decided I didn't care what my drives looked like, as long as they weren't right. Well, turns out ugly 150 yard snap hooks aren't great either.  Putting saved me from a truly atrocious round.  Silver lining... it wasn't that long ago that I'd have been more than satisfied with scoring 100.  Need to keep perspective.  Happy to be upset about shooting 100.  But fully aware I can do better.

Day 30:

I'm going ham on my takeaway work. I'm a fan of the Pomodoro technique while on the clock, so my work is punctuated by breaks of split-handed takeaways followed by regular takeaways to A3. I found the ultimate feel for me to get to A3 with much straighter arms and in an all-around better position.

Day 9

I played 18 holes today. Starting to hit the ball better and better.  Putting really sucks though

Day 42.  I played today, if we can call it that.  I did make a birdie, I did not make much else.  I need to give some careful thought tonight and tomorrow to what's going on, if this is a fluke or if I'm not practicing as effectively as I should be.  Poor drives and hitting my clubs shorter than I remember hitting them.
