Day 12

Played 18, played very poorly so I had lots of practice due to so many attempts to hit the ball.

The Driver just disappeared, frustrating as the last time out on Thursday i was crushing the ball

Day 32:

Hit a lot of balls at the Chautauqua outing today. Had my first golf lesson ever, and I couldn’t be happier with the direction I was given.

Lots of work to do.

Day 235

Played 18. Tried to work on my dynamic hip feel. Hit more pushes/blocks off the tee than I’d like, and some approach shots were unintentional high, spinny cuts that landed 1 club shorter than a normal shot. Pushes/blocks are a path issue and the unexpected cuts are a club face thing, so noted that on my scorecard for next week practice.

Did 5 minutes of practice backswings in front of a mirror before bed with a focus on the newly developed feels to help effectively engage the lower body.

Full swing practice with my PW and 5i. My main focus was keeping my trail arm tucked in during the swing.

Day 46.  Managed five minutes with my usual routine of 8-iron and 6-iron, indoors, off a mat, into a net, first two plush then real balls.

Went away with the family for the weekend.  I did my 5 minutes every day, but didn't get around to posting here, so we start again at 1.

Day 1: Went to a practice bay at PGA Tour Superstore.  Wanted to hit full and partial wedges (gap, sand, and lob) on the launch monitor.  Really happy with the consistency and knowledge from the session.

    • Go back and look at Golf Digests Hot List from 5-7 years ago online and find the game improvement category. The Hot List is a bit of a joke I realize but you will see the offerings from all the big companies for that year. Then just go on Ebay and see what you can find putting in whichever club looks good. Ping, Callaway, Taylormade, Cobra, Cleveland, all good options.
    • Few different things to look at here. First as already mentioned 6.5K spin is really high and no shaft is going to bring that down by itself. I would like to see that number under 3000. I would suggest taking a look at where you are making contact on the face of the club as that can greatly influence the spin numbers. Also just fyi, that head is going to produce more spin than something from the last 4 or 5 years. I would almost be tempted to say find a new driver and just go with the shaft that comes with it. What loft is on the current driver as that will also play a big role in spin and launch? Also did not see any mention of ball flight height. Assuming its really high, but wanted to check if it starts high or rises up after launch. If you want comp shaft recommendations to the Slay, which is technically mid price range by todays pricing, there are tons out there. VA actually calls this shaft a high launch, low spin design. Now technically that isn't really possible as launch and spin go together ie high/high or low/low. It really looks more like a mid launch and spin design to me. Similar options to look at could be Aldila Tour Blue 55g (Ebay around $60), any Mitsubishi Blue board style (will say blue in name or have blue color on it) again in 55g (Ebay around $80-$200 depending on model) would be too options. What else did you hit during the fitting, as that could help narrow down options.  Last thing, I might watch this video below I did concerning finding the ideal set up for your driver. Again the swing is going to be the biggest influence but impact position on the face will also play a large role.  
    • I golfed today. I golfed with some of my regular golf buddies. I almost backed out, but am happy I did not. Was feeling kind of down after last weekend when I SUCKED. Today was a much better experience. I did win the front nine, but am not sure yet on the back nine. After I totaled up my score I am happy. My friend Larry asked me 'Where were you last week?". I answered, "I have no idea". Golf... stupid game  
    • Sometimes I hit a few and putt a few. Sometimes I'll swing a couple clubs to loosen up.
    • I don’t have a warm up routine. I don’t usually hit balls at the range before a round, maybe putt a few minutes but that’s it. I do swing my driver maybe 5 times and crack all my knuckles at the first tee before starting my round.
