day 29 (I think, on my phone.)

3/2/18

chipped balls in my living room for about 10 minutes.  Then, packed my bag for Florida.  Streamsong, here I come. 

Really hoping issue 3 of golfers journal shows up on the doorstep tomorrow. Anyone get this yet? Scotty Cameron made a post that he got his.

Well I'm at 276 consecutive days. 1/1/18: I did my path drill indoors today. For those of you who don't know what this is, it involves 2 to 4 water or soda bottles a club and a foam ball. I

Day 61

10 minutes of putting, mostly at 3 feet. Used the metal ruler for 12 putts, then just putted using the same stroke. Did a couple of putts from 6 feet using a slightly longer stroke.

Took a few driver swings, working on turn, and getting the weight to my right heel on the backswing while maintaining a little flex in my right knee.

Day 29

used a towel on the range for 55 minutes. Put towel under right armpit. In the beginning the towel kept dropping, finally at the end I was able to make pretty good contact without the towel falling. Really helping me on the backswing and follow through.

Day 337:

The "first move down" drill again. Working starting my downswing with my arms instead of the body, and not getting too quick in the transition.

28 days to a year.

10 reps with a minute pause in between full swing reps with a couple less aggressive warmup reps. Stretching hamstrings. Working on slow movements through the transition. Tai Chi slow with weight shift incorporated into movement. Also keeping the lead wrist well pronated. Full coil backswing, lead arm straight getting past parallel. I have to focus on retaining the C-spine posture. Used a roller to work the upper back/shoulders, lats, glutes and calve muscles.

Hit driving range yesterday evening again, but the covered one since it was raining. Could not see any ball flights, but hit pretty solidly into the void :-D

Lost a little more weight, feel better at 205. 12 pounds so far...eating small frequent meals. Divided up my normal meals. Cuts out all my between meal snacks and I’m eating less because I always feel satisfied.

Day 62

Played 9 holes today in a pretty good wind storm. Was going for 18 holes, but the windy conditions beat me up pretty good. So much for my streak of no 6s.....lol  (46)

There's always tomorrow.:-)

DAY 93    Continuing to put in 4 hours of practice each day.  Spent 30 minutes training using my KPlayer working on address, backswing sequence, top of backswing and impact positions.   Then 3 1/2 hours on the range doing drills from my GGGA Workbook focusing on my downswing sequence when doing all the drills.

Went to the range and practiced an hour and a half. Did a lot of work, but I would say the emphasis was just on rotating well through the shot. Swing feels great - sensation is that I'm swinging more with momentum now, and less and less by directing my hands.

day 30

3/3/18

welp, I wasn’t going to do anything today, but then while planning for my round at Streamsong, I remembered it’s walking only.  I packed my cart bag.  I’m dumb.  

 

Unpacked bag bag and putted in the living room for about 20 minutes.  Then switched the clubs to the walking bag and going to re-pack. 

As a side note, got my new issue of golfers journal today.  Excellent plane reading coming up.

Used a swing sequencing version 3 club simulator with a swing speed radar to do the above.

Lost a little more weight, feel much better at 203. 14 pounds so far...eating small frequent meals. Divided up my normal meals. Cuts out all my between meal snacks and I’m eating less because I always feel satisfied. Will be adding more lean protein back into my diet. More vegetables and meat, but taking away 90% of the sugars. So far, my fat intake has been well below the recommended daily. The goal is to get to 190 before putting 100% recommended intake again. I was eating probably close to 180% daily recommended before the weight loss.

Day 30

worked on bunker game. I used my 54 degree sand wedge for 35 minutes. Green side bunker and worked on getting it out and carrying the green short, medium, and long. Short was easy. Medium was ok, most of them being short of the flag. Long was tough, a lot to carry and my dispersion was everywhere.

Day 63

Tried something different today just for fun. Because of all the posts on Norman's single plane swing in other threads, I decide to have s go at it. 

Yesterday after paying for 18 holes, due to weather, I only finished 9 hole. The guy running the course allowed me to finish out my round. 

I have an old 5i club that when using Norman's grip, and swing the club sits pretty well at address. So I played 9 holes with that 5i, and my putter

Shot a 44, and it only took 1:15:00 :beer:

DAY 94    I went a little overboard today.   Spent 30 minutes working with my KPlayer on Backswing sequence, top of backswing positions and address.   Then 4 hours and 15 minutes on the range working on downswing sequence (hips, torso, ...) while doing lots of motion related drills.   Tomorrow's range time will be all about hitting targets.

    • I moved all the single rider carts comments to this new thread per @bkuehn1952 suggestion.
    • Welcome to TST.  Yes, golf can be frustrating. Part of the game is learning to deal with the frustration.   Breaking 90 in your 1st year sounds impressive to me. Good job.
    • When I was at MidPines in NC I saw they have Finn Scooters (or something really similar) for rent.  I didn't take one, but they looked like a lot of fun: About Finn Finn Cycles are single rider electric golf carts that are sporty, invigorating and encourage ready golf. Get your Personal Golf Machine now!  
    • Has anyone used the “Scooter” or something similar? Fat Tire Golf Scooter | The Best Single-Rider Golf Solution Ride through the course on the fat tire golf scooter today. These two or three wheel golf trikes are a must have for...  
    • I guess when you KNOW you're missing the cut, might as well try something new.  But was putting really his problem?  Averaging 29 putts per 18 holes isn't awful in itself, but its possible he hadn't made anything over a couple feet.
