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.

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.

    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long. 
    • I did not play at all last week.  My most recent score before today was a hieroglyph from two weeks ago.  Truthfully it was probably 94 or 95, but I did not keep a proper score.  There was alcohol involved. It rained heavily last night.  So I got us on at beautiful and challenging Osprey Point, the crown jewel of Palm Beach public golf courses.  I can only get a tee time when it rains and people cancel.  I am increasingly suspicious that morning rounds are being given away by politicians for unethical reasons because the "public" tee times are simply never available before 2 PM. Anyway, the course was a mucky mess with intermittent rain.  I got an 89, kinda good for me. I could not get a putt to drop today. But (to toot my horn a bit) the driving has definitely been switched ON for the past few weeks.  I hit driver on 11 holes today, 8 fairways, no penalty strokes, and they were bombs. I sure hope that I have turned a corner, though probably not.  It will all go to pot again soon enough.  I should not even speak of it publicly or suffer the wrath of the golf gods.  But while this lasts, confidence in the drive opens up some wonderful options when you can hit it much further than the people you are with. The courses are just not long enough.  Have a look at Falcon 4 at Osprey Point:   I love smart designs like this. The score card says 315 from the gold tees, but that involves laying up on the dogleg (which you can't really see from the tee box) and pitching onto the green like an intelligent person.  This hole is a trap. You can see the scrub brush barrier.  It's only about 12 or 15 feet high. The green is small and elevated, but the scrub brush hides the elevation.  There is not a lot of room to miss on the left. I have gone for this green twice in the past.  Both times I over-swung and pulled it into the woods. More recently I have simply played it properly.  But with the driver working I felt emboldened today.  Sure enough I found success at last.  My pic is not great here.  The drive came up slightly short of the green, not really 292. It hit the incline and just stopped.  I was close enough to putt though.  Yeah, I three-putted.  Oh well.
    • Just curious, how many of us plan to use BD for the masters?
