Day 85 - Hit balls into a net while working on my wrist hunting and my hips/shoulders turning.

Day 251

Still working on the priority piece with several new feels. Not sure which one works best as far as achieving the desired position/movement so I recorded a few swings with each one and sent to my instructor to get some input on which one looks best, and that’s the feel I’ll stick with.

Ball striking was pretty good today, but mostly making slow, 9-3 swings.

Day 9: more of the same practice and seeing progress. I think I will post an update on my swing thread soon. Slow swings and then some full swings focused on getting to the top. I feel I am in a good position and have started working on feels to help me get started in the downswing and it looks like I am slowly getting rid of that initial down movement. Key for today was trying to start downswing with left knee starting towards target. Promising results after a few video reviews.

Day 170 - Played 9 at a par 3 course as a break from painting. Didn’t strike the ball that well but had five pars. Lots of good short game shots.

Day 16:  Chipping practice.  Off of my mat and into a hula hoop into various locations around my backyard.  Hoop indicated the landing area, not the hole.

Day 61.  After yesterday, I wasn't happy with myself so I made two blocks of time to practice.

First block, 30 minutes late morning, did the wall exercise for 5 minutes, then hit two balls (after several slow practice swings, and a slow swing).  Then a few more iterations at the wall, then two balls, and so on.  

Second block, hit a few balls slowly and then went out back to do speed sticks.

All ball hitting was indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls (did not use plush today).

Day 28

Hit a small bucket of balls out at Tustin Ranch and then played 17 holes before it got to dark.

Made some seriously positive strides today. Discovered my grip was to weak and really strengthened my left hand which lead to very good control with my Driver.  Starting to hit the ball better and better.

Day 86 - Filmed my swing today for feedback. Happy with the wrists in the backswing, shoulders are coming along. Hips still need work.

Day 252

Worked on new priority piece. Think I figured out a feel/swing thought that gets me in the right position so stuck did a bunch of 9-3 swings with that, then worked up to 75%-speed full swings.

Did a superspeed workout as well.

Day 10:  more of the same from yesterday but did a little extra day 2 COVID to work on my torso turn. I am much improved but seem to be stuck and unable to get that little extra improvement that is needed. Still encouraged at my progress. I should be able to be more consistent with the improvements made. 
 

edit: check my swing thread for a new FV.

Day 17:  Playing 18 each of the next 2 days, so just wanted to keep things simple.  Hit a few free and easy shots into the net.  No launch monitor, simple on-course swing thoughts, free and easy tempo.  Did some chipping and putting games/drills.

Day 62.  Twice had a few minutes (at least five minutes each time) in the practice room with my usual routine now -- against the wall a few, then two on the mat, then back to the wall then back to the mat. 6-iron, real balls, off the mat, into the net when a ball was actually hit.

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • 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.
