Day 265 - Sept 18, 2020

Rehearsals in the patio glass doors. Feeling as though the shaft is \ and I'm turning against my right leg and staying into the ground there.

Day 92.  Played 18, hit 4 GIR and shot a really poor score, just like yesterday.  High slope rating courses, especially on first play, really get to me!  I have to figure out how to do better in those circumstances.   GameGolf stuff I'll get done tomorrow.

Damn, my post from yesterday never went through. Hope this counts. 

Day 39

Same practice except I moved the road to the other side towards the target line. I liked the change and am seeing continued progress

Day 40

I don't have much time today due to traveling to visit son in college so I did 5 minutes of mirror work focused on a centered pivot. Picked a spot on the mirror working my left shoulder down to it while keeping my head steady. I'm hoping to swing this evening when I get home but it might be late.

5 Minutes Daily Practice - Day 1

The past month I have been struggling with my Driver, lost a lot of distance and shots all over the place except in the fairway.  It has been over a month since I focused any practice on it so after reading the 65-20-15 topic I decided to make that the start of my 5 Minute Daily Practice goal.

Went to the range with my wife as objective observer.  Her first question was "If you are hitting towards that flag, why are you aimed so far left?"  so I spent the next 10 minutes working on my initial setup to get better aligned with the target.  Was still hitting like crap, but at least aimed correctly.

Next I pulled out some Impact Stickers and quickly discovered I was hitting high on the hosel almost every shot.  Worked on lowering the tee and making sure I knew how high it was teed up and also setting up a little farther back from the ball. Once I started getting more consistent contact the ball was going longer and mostly on target.  Still need to get more consistent in the sweet spot but this a major improvement.  Attached is a photo of the last impact sticker.  Not perfect, but much better.  I think I will repeat this tomorrow to get the tee height and set-up distance more consistent.

Day 1 again. Was able to do 15 minutes of pitches and chips without pain. If I feel ok tomorrow, I will go to a course and do short game work.

Day #2

Went to range and worked hitting sweet-spot more consistently, focus on not crowding the ball and proper tee heigh.  I felt I have the initial setup and tee height correct, was hitting consistently 10 yards either side of target on most shots.  Still a tendency to hit near Hozel but so much better and close enough to get the “ forgiveness”.  Now that I am not crowding the ball I need to work to keep my downswing on plane.  At least many were 235-240 today which is good for me, especially if near the target.

    • Personally I'm leaning towards these options, but am open to what everyone else wants.  We probably want to try this during the week if were booking SV tee times 30 days out. I am thinking we start golfing maybe on Monday the 19th or Tuesday the 20th.  Again, I am very open to discussion on all of this. 1. Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box $290 2. Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box $290 3. Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box $290  4. Sentry World ($155) or Mammoth or SV and the Sand Box ($290) 5. Lawsonia ($120) or Erin Hills($320) - If you would be doing this on the way out it would be recommended to maybe fly out of Milwaukee and you may want to get a hotel nearby for a next morning flight.  So, costs: The 4 days of golf with Sentry world would be roughly $1025 for the golf. All 4 days all at SV would be $1160 5 days with Lawsonia $1145. 5 days with Erin hills or Whistling to something else you would want to do...have fun and good on you for having limitless income. A word of advice for Whistling and Erin, Whistling requires a caddy i believe, so your probably looking at ($750) and Erin has so many blind shots that you likely need one.   If someone wants to just golf the first three days, that is an option too.  @Slim_Pivot I apologize I was a bit low maybe on my initial calculations.  I was originally thinking of 3-4 days instead of 4-5 days. I am all for as much golf as possible though.      
    • Sorry for the silly-long delay in replying! The course closed in October 2016. I've never been back to the park. Our club (Braeside GC) survived after moving to Selsdon Golf Course and we're doing pretty well, except for the women's section which has dwindled badly. The other club (Beckenham GC) disappeared after moving/merging to somewhere else that wouldn't allow to retain their identity (I think they only had around 10 active members).
    • If you stay with Footjoy stay with the medium. It will likely be a bit long, but the elastic is so bad better to go with the proper sizing.
