Day 40

Played a Par 3 course tonight to help work on accuracy with my short irons.  My wife really enjoyed the round as well.

Day 265

Superspeed workout and more work on my priority piece with slow 7-iron swings. The feel that was working well seems to have gone dead so I’m a bit lost at the moment. Going to film and email teacher tomorrow and see how I’ve progressed. Lesson next week, so it’ll get sorted out soon regardless.

Day 75.  Some combination of 12 holes of match play (I "won," 1 up) and "let's hit balls, but on the course."  Of course, I focused on my usual for my swings, but without the wall drill available on the course.  I hit some very good shots today on a golf course, although the goal wasn't really on keeping score or even following the usual rules (like picking a tee box consistently).  

This was at a private course where a friend of mine is a member;  we got onto the course with a few hours before sundown, after work, to play what we could.

Day 24

Did an hour on the range and finally got some slo-mo video too post on my swing thread but when I upload it to YouTube it shows up in regular speed (Iphone x). If anyone knows how to fix this please pm me so as not to derail this thread.

Day 42

Went to the Practice Area and focused solely on Wedges. Went thru all the wedges on full swing.  Then I spent time hitting my pitching wedge using my putter swing.  I am really liking this approach from the fairways on short shots up to 80 yards.  It is accurate and really no fat shots.

Day 31:  Played 9 holes this morning.  Not the best round ever.  Kind of a reality check after the weekend I had with the driver.  I thought I had found something that was working.  The problem was not knowing exactly what it was.  Also missed a couple 3-4 foot putts.  Good news was the short game was good today.

Day 76.  Played match play with a friend, 16 holes (stopped due to lack of light).  Was up by 4 with 2 holes to go when we stopped (we were more keeping track of up/down than a strict match play).  Overall score with ESC and the two missed holes posted appropriately was an 88 on a tough course -- a great outing!

Day 266

Decided to turn my practice session into a workout. Warmed up with some 7-iron 9-3 swings focusing on priority piece. Then hit about 50 balls as hard as I could with a full backswing. Cooled off with some partial wedge shots and pitching practice, about another 50 balls.

Day 25

Probably TMI but I did a very light session today since I'm in prep for a Colonoscopy tomorrow. If I pull off practice tomorrow I'll be surprised. Maybe some mirror work since I will be in the bathroom most of the day 😂

Focus today was just on getting to the top and trying to get to A5 and A6 on plane. Lots of focus on my weight shift since I tend to fall down with my head towards the ball a bit.

Day 32:  Went to the short game practice facility in a nearby suburb.  Worked chips, pitches, and sand shots.  Threw a few flops in there too.

Day 42

Great range session.  Focused on PW, 48*, 52* & 56* wedges. All at full swing then half swing with each. Finished with PW using putter swing for pitching.

Then I went to the launch monitor and hit my 5 wood and Driver.  The Driver is getting more and more consistent.

Day 77.  Played 18 after work with a friend.  Shot an 87, which is very good for the course I played.  I had to play the 18th in the dark, and laid up on a par-4 because I wanted to know if I had carried the water and wouldn't be sure in the lack of daylight.  Five sixes, including on a par-3, and still shot an 87.

    • Day 320 Superspeed workout, then some mirror work on takeaway/backswing, and finally hit some balls with 7-iron. Hit the ball well today. Still searching for a good feel/thought to take on course for backswing piece. Current one is okay, but I think I can come up with something better. 
    • Update - I sent an email to Arccos support about my Caddie Link order, again, and received this prompt reply (in part): "... We did begin fulfilling pre-orders at the end of September and then the first week of October our manufacturer informed us that due to COVID they are unable to acquire the needed materials to complete further devices for the next couple of weeks so shipments have halted for the time being. Shipments of the devices will commence the first week of November. We greatly apologize for this delay and issue and once they send yours out we will be sure to send you tracking and status updates."  
    • Hi all, I was fit into both the Mizuno JPX 921 SEL irons (which is a combo set of 6-GW Mizuno JPX 921 tours and then 4-5 JPX 921 Forged) and the Taylormade P770 irons.  I hit both pretty well, and thought the Mizunos had a slightly better feel but the Taylormades went slightly further.  Both had good spin rates and descent angles, although the Miznuo was slightly better on those factors for me.  I feel pretty torn between the two, I like them both a lot looks wise.  My fitter said it was a really close and tough call but that at the end of the day he would probably suggest the Mizunos for me because they're cheaper to get customer shafts and grips with, the lie can be bent more, the higher center of gravity helps a small amount with my miss (a hook), and they will last me longer as I continue bringing my handicap down.  On the other hand, the P770s are a touch more forgiving and go a little further, so it's a tough call for me. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts between the two or advice or perhaps would just like to share which they would pick in my shoes. Thank you.
