Day 51

Full swing practice with my 3h and 3w. I've had some trouble with these 2 clubs lately during play. 

I'm going to continue to practice with these clubs more during the week.

Day 77 - Going back through my latest Evolvr videos, really need to focus more on the hips turning. Going to do some mirror work when I'm done.

Day 6:  Hit some balls into the net in my backyard.  Didn't work on anything specific.  Just wanted to swing free and easy.

Day 7: Played 9 holes at my "home" course. Cleanest 9 holes of the year so far. 2 pars, 7 bogeys, no sixes. Didn't hit any spectacular shots, especially on approaches, but there weren't any disaster shots. And the couple that weren't great, i was able to follow up with a decent enough shot instead of making it worse with another not great shot. Golf is much more enjoyable on days like this.

Day 52.  I played today.  Played the par-3s and par-5s in a total of even (one birdie and one bogey, each on a par-3;  parred the other two par-3s and all three par-5s).  Didn't make so much as a par on a par-4.  Shot 17 over.  Four doubles and a triple (there are 11 par-4s at this course).  Some of those six fives on par-4s felt better than others.  Very happy with strokes 2-5 on hole 11. 

Improved my ringer score for the birdie challenge by 3 strokes today, all on par-3s.

 Happy also with how I finished.  After going 6-7 on the last two par-4s, finishing par-par-par especially with the 16th being a bit of a nemesis par-3 for me.

Day 8:  Played 18 holes today hoping to continue my amazingly consistent play from yesterday.  And it was anything but consistent.  Not that I'm not generally happy with how I played. I did a terrific job recovering mentally from disaster holes, and I'm very happy about that.  The problem was, there were 4 disaster holes.  In the first 7 holes.  On the front 9, I had 5 pars, two triples, a quadruple, and a quintuple.  Just incredible.  I settled into the back 9 just fine and played a decent 9 holes.  All in all, this would have been a great round for me, had i kept those holes on the front 9 to double bogeys.  Instead, its just another round where you try to take the positives.  In this case, the positive is 9 pars. All time best for me.

Day 53.  Went to the range to hit balls outdoors (as if I didn't hit enough yesterday!) and get some video.  Hit plenty of great 8-iron, 6-iron, hybrid, 4-wood, and driver with only a few poor shots mixed in.  Where was this for the first 15 holes yesterday?

Either way, I focused on the setup and on not rushing.  It's easy for me to not rush at home -- no one's here, I have all the balls I want and can stop and come back and so on.  I feel some of my shots outdoors have been rushed lately, so I want to practice that, and practice it outdoors.

That's it for challenge purposes;  I will be doing speed sticks outside later today.

I’ve been basically working on my game every day since I’m working from home during Covid and can work on things while listening to calls and stuff so I’m not sure why I haven’t been doing this. 
 

Day 1: my primary focus is eliminating OTT and being more balanced, steady head (see my swing thread for recent video). i am keeping it simple and rotating between 3 slow mapping swings and one full swing with a foam ball. I am using my 4 iron since I am struggling with my longer clubs. 
 

I hope it’s OK to use the same practice over and over because I’m really trying to focus on one thing until I’m ready to move on to the next area of focus. It’s pointless for me to work on other things until I finally get this down.

Day 162 - Played nine today. Heat got the better of me but I played pretty well. Focused on the feel of trying to fade the ball on every shot as per my Evolvr lesson. For the driver, got a nice push fade. For the irons, slight push draw. I think this will be more controllable.
 

I noticed a lot of players at the PGA were playing fades. I like the height I get and the misses are less extreme.

Day One!

I have a Medicus Vision Track Pro

I took 20 balls to the practice area, and for each ball I:

- Set up at A1 with the ball in the middle of my stance

- Slowly swing back to A3, trying to keep a sense of weight somewhat forward

- Track the club path along the path line, and forwards again

- Back to A3 and then swing through, trying to ensure I don't foul the swing fault marker

- Observe the shot shape

 

I hit the fault thing about 3 times... I thought I'd do it much more - I've seen myself, and I have a dreadful out-to-in swing path on the downswing.

I hit a draw about 3 times... I thought I'd do this more, if I didn't foul the fault thing, since I tend to deliver the face slightly closed relative to the swing path, so I assumed if I made contact on that path I would pull or draw the ball.

I hit a huge slice about 16 times.

Day 40:

Did some pump drills for 5 minutes. Lots of photo review of myself vs some lower handicaps (which showed a few areas to work on). Long net session planned for tomorrow with some video.

    • I have a TheraGun knockoff; KRAFT. Have had it for two years now. It is quiet (60dba); has three speeds 1800, 2100, 2400 - I usually use 1800 with the ball attachment. Once a day minimum I use it all over - well what I can reach - soles of my feet, calf muscles, front and back of upper legs, glutes, upper back - particularly the area between neck and shoulder and about 6 inches down. I will also take it to the course and use on the upper back - as that tends to tighten up during the round. Here is a youtube video by Bob & Brad (Physical Therapists) - they post lots of helpful videos.       
    • It’s kind of a weird situation, though, because the guy improved to the point that he wouldn’t even qualify for the flight he’s already in. I’m assuming the competition is gross scoring within the flight.
    • 79 today for a differential of 5.8. Ball striking with the irons was better but my wedges and putting were awful. Couldn't control the distance or direction at all with how bad I was striking it for some reason. SG (compared to scratch) Driving: 2.49 Approach (>100 yds): 0.19 Short game (<100 yds): -2.66 Putting: -2.40 I also track the "Tiger Five," which is a better way of quantifying all the silly mistakes I make during my rounds. These were: Bogeys on par 5s: 0 Double bogeys: 0 Three putts: 4 Bogeys with 9-iron or less: 2 Blown easy saves (which I quantify as any nGIR that isn't in a bunker/deep rough or terribly short sided): 3
    • Very recently a thread was started here about PingEye2 iron sets and subject was some folk (experienced players) were seeking out these clubs to play AGAIN.  I have played Eye2 irons for many years, now on my second set as the first set was stolen.  As old as this design is, people have always got good memories and respect for these clubs.  and you can find sets for $100 or less ALL DAY LONG.  Buy a set, re-grip, and he's set up - to see if he likes the game.  With the difference from buying sets suggested, you have $$ for that driver and putter (these clubs will be more per each than a couple sets of Eye2s). and a bag. Be sure to put new 'velvet' grips on the properly fit clubs (according to the Ping site) and your son will have the best starter set he could find - and he may just play them for years to come.  You know, you're Ping.  PS - I had been planning on a new set of irons just because but when I tuck one up close from 100 or 150 yards, I forget about it.  I am shopping putters tho.    
    • Seconding this. Pretty much any OEM's game improvement or super game improvement from a couple model years ago will give him the performance and forgiveness he needs for a solid price. Just make sure you do your research on the ebay seller. I've had good success with it, but if you are more skeptical, there are plenty of second-hand retailers online.
