Day 1 - restarting this challenge again after letting it lapse a while back.

went to the course this morning and spent 20 mins putting working on bead. Then went to chipping area and spend time on chipping lengths 10-15 yds and shorter pitches or 20-25yds. 

was fun. Wish I could spend more time chipping/pitching. Gonna go out and working on PP (keeping right elbow straight in backswing) for 10mins.

Day 46

Played 9 holes at my Home Town course.  Hit some extra balls separate from my main ball and hit some practice shots.  Since the course is pretty unusual with a lot of challenging shots it was nice.  Just nice hitting the ball on the course i grew up on, worked at and my family has been members for well 50 continual years

Day 35:  Forgot to post my practice yesterday, but its my first missed day.  Been working on my swing basics, and getting a baseline for what I think my swing should be.  So when things go haywire the way they did this week, I'll have something to check back against.  I've also been trying to address what has been going on with my right hand at the top of my backswing.  Think I have some solutions, but time will tell.  Yesterday, was full swing work only with the 8 iron.  Today was mostly 8 iron and ended with the driver.

Day 30

same focus and drills as yesterday. Feel good about getting to A2. Started adding in a forward press as my swing trigger. Still struggling with not getting steep at beginning of downswing.

I wanted to practice putting today, but when I got to the course near me, the practice putting green was closed. 

Day 82 - spent ten minutes indoors with my gap wedge, quarter half and full swings.  Indoors, off a mat, into the net, real balls for quarter and half shots, foam for full (I'm still not convinced it won't go over the net since I don't really control height on my wedges well).

    • You know, as a musician I find a lot of similarities between learning a musical instrument and golf. I don’t think I’ve found any two hobbies more similar.    When it comes to equipment, the similarities hold true. A professional guitarist will be able to make a cheap First Act guitar from Walmart sing in the same way a scratch golfer will play scratch golf regardless if he uses his own clubs or yours. The overall result is pretty much the same regardless of the equipment. The skill of the player eclipses it in importance.    I think in both hobbies, cheap equipment has come a long way, to the point where the differences are subtle. In golf I notice more expensive clubs have less cosmetic defects. The material is better, meaning the clubs are less likely to break, and definitely in the case of wedges/irons wear down. But is that to say a cheap club is going to break in a year? Probably not. To be honest, most of it just feel. The strike of an expensive club feels smoother, sounds better, and frankly is a more enjoyable experience in most cases to hit. 
    • So, that's really a thing? Never even heard of it. 
    • @ajl, it seems to me that what you're asking isn't about the performance or design differences between one set of irons from one manufacturer versus another, but simply what the difference between a premium set of golf clubs and a generic or a knockoff set is? The answer, as in all products in life, comes down to quality. A premium manufacturer cares if their manufacturing process produces X% variation from club to club which can result in differences in performance from set to set. A clone company won't and they know their customers don't, so they don't invest the time or money into having higher manufacturing tolerances.

    • Are you kidding me? I’m in first place and did not get my alert this week.  Another season torched  because of failed reminders (I know it’s ultimately my fault but I’m pissed regardless)
