Day 87.  Busy day, but I still found time to spend five minutes hitting half and quarter swings, with my gap wedge, in my practice room, indoors, off a mat, real balls, into a net.

Day 36

More posture work along with very slow swings. I rigged an alignment stick behind me to force me to get on plane and I cannot do anything but take slow swings at this point without hitting it. We'll see if it gets easier with repeated practice.

Day 51

Went to range tonight and hit a large bucket.

Focused hard on the Driver rotating between wedges, 9 Iron then hit 3 iron and 5 iron.  It was excellent tonight to hit golf balls again

Day 41: Missed yesterday's post when I played 18, and played well. Really good with the driver. Shot 86. Today, I worked on the shortcomings from yesterdays round: lob wedge and fairway woods/hybrid off the deck. Swing thread update should be coming soon.

Day 262 - Sept 15, 2020

Went downtown to work on something before heading out to play 18 holes today in Ohio. Good work. Just felt more "into" my right hip and knee and not letting them float quite so much.

Day 36

Same as yesterday. I'm really liking the immediate feedback of the alignment stick. Today I was able to swing faster than yesterday and only hit the stick once and just barely grazed it. I may have finally found something that will help me eliminate the OTT. I'm staying with this drill for a while.

Day 1 - Did some set up and backswing work with a shaft without a head. Shoulder is improving but I can’t swing a full weighted club yet. Felt good to start to do something.

Day 52

Did my SKlZ training set tonight and followed that up with Winged Foot chipping practice from the progressive rough in my backyard.  Dang is it ever getting deep and tough.

Did 2 sets of 10 with the SKLZ grip tempo and 2 sets of 10 with SKLZ Gold Flex

Day 279

Skipped work on priority piece today and worked on a couple sub-pieces.

1 - did a bunch of rehearsal swings working on not dragging club too far inside on backswing with 5-iron through driver. 
 

2 - hit a bunch of balls focusing on “knuckles facing target” to square club face, because as I work on priority piece, I start leaving club face open.

Hit a bunch of balls with these 2 sub-pieces. Didn’t focus too much on the hip piece, but it kind of started working on its own toward the end.

    • Day 54 - Trying to get comfortable with this new setup, just hitting some balls indoors. 
    • I’ve never tinkered with swing weight before, and when I build a set of irons I usually just settle for the feel of the clubs as-built with the idea that I’ll eventually get used to the different feel. That said, my main set of irons feels perfect to me (probably just familiarity with them), and adjusting swing weight is something I’d like to be able to do in the future to make my other sets feel closer to them. I’ve just never invested the time to work on it. 
    • Day 321 Did mirror work on takeaway/backswing piece, and then hit balls with 7-iron and 3W working on hip turn piece. 
    • 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.
