Day 31

Same as prior days. I think I figured out that I am still rolling over my forearms quite a bit in the backswing. Added in focus of getting hands higher and back with rotation of body, not rotating my forearms. It seems to have helped with OTT, but made some horrible contact on quite a few. I’m due for a video check in if I can get out to the range

Day 3

 I have a neighborhood captain’s choice tourn coming up in three weeks and I’ll need to hit  seven 5W’s in that one round (a lot of doglegs which prevent Driver off the tee) so I did my Right Elbow drills with it today and will try to give that club a little more attention that usual prior to a round.

Day 38:  Another day of swing basics.  A really positive session.  Finally started to feel less robotic.  And the results were similar to the practice sessions a couple weeks ago when I felt like I had a breakthrough.  The problem was that I didn't understand what the breakthrough was other than it felt good and results were good.  Hopefully, doing a better job of documenting my swing sessions and swing thoughts this time around will help me when the swing goes awry.  Maybe I can get back on track sooner and sooner each time.  Of course this is just how I feel now.  We'll see how I feel after tomorrow's session, and then the 27 holes I'll play this weekend.

Day 32

same practice as prior days. Trying to work in a feel at transition to help  fix my OTT. It seems to be helping but it’s proving hard to fix completely.

Day 84.  Speed Sticks protocol 1 in my backyard.  Finishing green swing was 116mph. 

Side note:  my round yesterday wasn't good from a scoring perspective, but I averaged 207 yards with my driver, despite a 146 yard pop-up on hole 2 and wet fairways.  200 yards used to be a good poke for me, still is some rounds.  I do attribute some of the difference to the Speed Sticks.

Day 48 - while under 14 day Quarantine

I copied yesterday's routine.  2 sets of 10 with SKLZ Tempo Grip Trainer and 2 sets of 10 with SKLZ Gold Flex while also using the Izzo swing trainer.  Lots of stretching as well.  Fell asleep in the chair last night before i had a chance to post  - shhhhh

Day 33

Same routine. No changes but I need to slow it down to see if I can get the transition feel to stick at higher speeds.

    • Day 70 spent an hour on the range chipping/putting and getting some video of my full swing. I’ll get it up either tonight or tomorrow. 
    • Played a nearby muni course today.  Last time there - holes 15-17 were underwater (drainage issues) so we were not able to do a full round.  Today the course was back to normal and funny thing, fairways were dry and the ball loved to roll out!  The fronts of the greens were mush, plug the ball sticky.  Made for approach shots at the front of the green tricky because too steep a landing and you were rolling no where.  For a guy who just starting to consistently shoot in the 90's it made attacking the greens more challenging.  Keep thinking about how in LSW, to aim for the big area of the green and not hunt flags.  To be honest, I had a blast with the 50* wedge as I was putting the ball exactly where I saw it landing.  Overall - cannot complain shot a 96 (48/48), gold tees (translates to around 6100yds).  Only one triple, NO SNOW MEN!, but way too many doubles to overcome.  All in all drives were some of my best ever, with them either being on fairway or just off enough the S20 saw them as in the rough.  That's okay.  Not a bad day putting, still had some 3 putts but it was me not the putter or the greens which were reasonably fast.  Would love to play this one again soon, its just over an hour away so not too bad a drive.  Thinking about taking the missus there as she is saying she is ready to go play a round.   
    • Estimated total cost not including travel and food? Can be a wide range
    • I feel like I am very close to a semi-repeatable swing, so I plan to continue my Evolvr work through the winter.  We've made some great progress that is allowing me to hit the long clubs much, much better. I had been losing 6.5 shots a round to a scratch golfer in my ability to get off the tee and approach the green and haven't played much really since 2017. I don't have any disillusions about getting to scratch at this point in my life but a sub 5 golfer should be very attainable in the future.    
    • Will do guys, just need to get it out there to make sure we give everyone who is interested enough notice. I will probably be booking the Sand Valley tee times well in advance of the date.
