Day 7 - Played 9. Putting was garbage, short game was inconsistent, driver was off. Scorecard was mostly pars and doubles, not ideal. Scramble tomorrow morning, hope I can be our “safe drive” guy. Not sure after today...

Day 26

Managed to get in a 10 minute practice this morning. Did 50% swings focusing solely on an exagerated feel at the start of the downswing to get the club more on plane. It looked great on film. The plan is to repeat this for a few days and then slowly up the speed to see if I can get it to stick in my full swing.

Day 251 - Sept 4, 2020

Played nine holes at Whispering Woods. Shot… 35? 34? I haven't done the GAME GOLF yet. I bogeyed 6, had at least two birdies. Probably 35.

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 43

I played 18 tonight with my Wife.  Frustrating round.  Five 3 putts, granted the greens were aerated but still, five 2 putts.  

I posted Day 42 yesterday.  I don't know why it didn't post,

Day 268

Worked on my priority piece again. Started with half swings with a 7-iron, and then moved ahead with full swings, with a variety of clubs. Driver, 3W, 5-iron, 7-iron, and PW, hitting about 10 balls with each. I tried a swing thought of "noodle arms" because I think I sometimes get too much tension into my forearms and wrists. The thought seemed to be effective during practice.

Day 8 - Played in a scramble with some buddies, game was much better today. I gave us a safe drive on almost every hole and had some solid approach shots.

Day 34:  Played 18 holes.  Did some things well, most things not so well, and a few things dreadfully.  Also worked on some 25+ foot putts on the practice green.

Day 79.  Did my usual "I have only the time to do five minutes of practice, but I am going to do five minutes" routine.  A few swings, no club, near a wall to establish how I turn, then a few swings on a mat, then a ball, then a few more swings, then a ball, and then repeat again.

Day 269

Played 18 today. Started 2 hours later than usual (8:30am) so warmed up at home with 9-3 swings focusing on priority piece. Got to the course and just focused on “noodle arms” and trying to swing without technical thoughts. It was almost 90 degrees by 10am, and 95 degrees when I finished. Ran out of water on the 11th hole and had some nasty blisters on my heels/achilles area, I suppose from sweating more than normal. It was good practice in focus and perseverence.

Day 28

Played 18 at Edgewater in Lancaster, SC. Very erratic round but I could see some improvement from the work I’ve been doing. Short game was horrible but I expected that since I’ve been doing nothing but full swing work for a month. I seem to have gained a club length back that I had lost but I am still really struggling with the longer irons. Hybrid was improved. 3W was a disaster. Driver was much improved.

Day 253 - Sept 6, 2020

Hit 20-25 balls downtown after lessons. Then got a call from a student/player on my college team and had to handle that. But the 20 balls went pretty well. Hands go out and shaft feels like \.

Day 45

Working on Mom's house so little time play golf.  Got 10 minutes of swing drill of throwing the ball to continue to stop that over the top swing.  It has been working as my consistency on the course has really improved.  I have not been cutting the ball and hitting it very straight.

    • 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.
