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.

    • Save your money and get a good unit. Sounds like you’re serious. The problem is your budget. Unfortunately, better units simply won’t likely fall to within your budget at this point in time. The mevo+ looks promising but the stickers would be a deal breaker for me. My set up is a gc2, computer with FR1 (with all courses), country club elite mat, projector, and hitting screen. I’m sure I’ve left something out. The only problems I have with the gc2 is the fact that it over-rewards low spin shots (like driver) on the carry distance. Otherwise, it’s very accurate. Really the only data points I care about are ball speed and start line; I don’t curve the ball too much generally. If my ball speed and start line are where I want it, I’m pretty happy. Other potential issue I see for it moving forward: it does not have a LED flash like the quad so those have to be replaced after a while (long time but still). That said my foresight guy gets me what I need and has taken care of me. 
    • The Ping G410 Plus sits open at address. My suggestion is to take your grip and hold it straight in front of you with the club face is square, then address the ball. Your push should then become a draw. 
    • Erik already told you what you need to do from a technical standpoint.  I think you're trying too hard and you're getting emotional while you're playing. I can tell from your post. Emotions can help you focus in some sports, but in golf they will absolutely punish you. If you let your emotions get the better of you, they will reinforce the negative and ignore the positive while you are playing. And once that starts you might as well pack it in for the round. You and I have been playing about the same length of time. I'm a 90s golfer. I don't know if I'll ever break into the 80s consistently. It's a goal, but the world won't end if I don't. You've put more time and effort into this than I have. The biggest lesson I learned was to play the game one shot at a time. Forget the last shot that you hit. It's gone. It's not there anymore. You have an entirely new situation in front of you. Look it over, figure out how to best play it, pull the club, go through your pre-shot routine, relax, visualize the successful shot, trust yourself, and swing the club. "What happens if I hit a bad shot?" you say. Laugh if you have to. You're not playing for a $ millions. The shot is gone. You have a new shot. It's the only way to deal with it without getting negative thoughts. Play within your game. Don't try to do what your game doesn't allow you too do.  You also said "an easy 6i shot". Now I don't know if you meant to take an easy swing with the 6i or it was a simple 6i shot. English is vague. If you meant the latter, you assigned a value to the shot. It's just a 6i shot. You either make it or you don't. Saying it's 'easy' and missing it means failure. Having it just be a shot and missing the green means you just missed the green. You have to chip or pitch on. No value to the shot. A former tour pro gave me this advice. And I'll mention, this is one of the most difficult things to do, but it can keep your head clear of negative thoughts through a round. That's all I have to say about this. YMMV.
    • 101, 49/52. Long track, 6100 yds par 71. Wet so no roll.  My long game is weak but what concerns me more is my approach and wedge game let me down today.  
    • Hi Warren,  I have not started working on adding drywall for my garage. Thank you for the tips on adding insulation and soundproofing acoustic panels. I plan to take 1 week off and start doing drywall mid November. I am in Southern California so heating is not an issue. I can use a space heater if needed.  Right now I am leaning toward Skytrak because it seems like it is better for simulator golf games. I don't plan on taking the device to the range. I will checkout the Golf Simulator Forum.
