Day 47.  Spent about fifteen minutes (about as many balls) practicing indoors, 8-iron (flight) and 6-iron (full), off a mat, into a net.  Plush balls the first two and then real balls for the rest.  Focused on level pelvis and arms hanging down for setup.

Day 156 - Spent a couple hours at a course today. First hour was short game work. Started with tight lies and worked on pitch and chipping motions with my 54 and PW. Followed with work from rough to different pin locations both up and down hill. Did a few flops near the end. Too many people on the green for sand work.

Second hour was irons and driver. Mostly did Key 5 work including the stick drill place about 25 feet in front. Driver has the most variability still. Finished with long pitches with 9 iron and PW.

Day 2:  Went to range.  Focus on stance, posture, stable legs, and steady head.  Happy with the results.  Consistency trending in the right direction.

Day 35:

Did takeaway work to A3 for a few minutes then did some swing motions sans club. I might stop rehearsing to A4 (and stopping there) altogether. Continuing to build feels around the new lower body priority piece. Really liking this much more athletic swing.

Day 74 - Finally filmed my latest Evolvr drill and sent it in for feedback. It's also nice to be able to hit some balls into a net, swinging in front of a mirror gets old fast.

Day 238

Did a bunch of different stuff today. Started with some recording of 7-iron full swings. Noticed I was taking the club back with an extremely shut face, like almost pointing at the ground sometimes. Did some rehearsals to feel it more aligned with my body angle, and then recorded a few more swings. Much better, and for some reason I made a better hip/shoulder turn, and contact was good.

Repeated the takeaway feel with 3W and driver and hit some balls. Also experimented with driver tee height to see if/how that impacts where the ball contacts the face. Turns out teeing the ball about 1/8-1/4” lower compared to my normal height moved contact from a high on the face more toward center, resulting in more ball speed, so noted that for next round.

Finished off the practice with superspeed workout.

Day 3: Played a practice round at my "home" 9 hole course.  Very consistent today.  For fun, played the 2 remaining holes in my par challenge straight up.  Actually had a par on 5, and had my par putt on 7 graze the edge of the cup. But since its a practice round, I won't count it.  I'll get them soon enough.

Day 36:

Long net session working on the new lower body priority pieces. Getting better at slowing down my practice, but it can surely get sloooooooower.

Yesterday, 8/4, I missed.  I believe it is my first miss in at least 28 days.  I can double check, but I think the last day I missed was in late June.  How are others keeping track?

Day 48.  Had 15 minutes to hit 8-iron and 6-iron in my practice room today, practice swings and some balls too.  Off a mat, into a net, indoors, using plush balls (first two) and then real balls.

Day 220 - August 5, 2020

Got a little full swing mirror work in. I think I was a bit too upright. I played a tiny bit more bent forward yesterday and hit the ball SO much better.

    • I want to go back one day. Got to play Bandon, but not Pacific. One day...  
    • Head of my home organization has approved my involvement with this excursion.. So barring anything out of my control I am looking forward to it. Big part of the reason for my immediate interest is that these courses (especially Mammoth) were already on my short list of destinations to plan a trip next year including Cabot Cliffs/Links and Streamsong, which I will plan for the following years to come now.  Anyway, couldn't be happier to join this group. Hopefully the planet will still be rotating Eastward next July as it is today...😉 
    • It certainly could depend on the format.  If you need 4 scores from 5 players, for instance, maybe you could take a flyer on one guy like that.  If its match play, maybe you can take a risk on losing just one match really quickly.  But if you put out 6 players needing 6 scores, do you take the chance that one player's poor day kills the entire team's chances?  I'd still take solid and steady in most circumstances, I'd still prefer to BE Mr. Consistent.
    • Well, played final round at home course yesterday and checked off #10.  Should have pared #17 but stupid 3 putt, should not have happened!  Overall for the year I golfed 11 rounds at the course, got par on 12 holes, no birdies.  The holes I failed to par are the 1,2,3,4,10 & 14 Handicap holes. The #14 handicap hole was a par-3 and I can't believe I never got par on it.  The #10 handicap was the hole I 3-putted for bogey yesterday.  
    • I think in a big match, like an NCAA Championship, the coach might want to roll the dice and go with Mr. Erratic to have a chance of winning.  Or of finishing last.  The "all-or-nothing approach" .
