Day 283

Played 18 today away from my home course. Usually a course where I shoot in the low 80s, so I was optimistic for a good round. Played really well during the front 9. I was striking the ball well, and my short game and putting were solid, giving myself a bunch of chances for birdies and pars. Then I just got completely eviscerated on the back 9. Shanks, big push slices OB, topped drives, chunked chips, etc. My shot tracker says I scored 40 on the front and 53 on the back but I showed up 2 minutes before my tee time, and forgot to grab a scorecard, so I'll have to review the round on Shotscope to make sure strokes are counted properly. 

I think that I was thinking too much about priority piece while playing. So back to practice so the new feel doesn't require as much conscious effort on my part.

Day 23 - Some practice on the range followed by 18. Range went well, 18 was a rough start. Seems that turning my hips in the backswing is leading to a consistent pull, unless I leave the club face open.

Day 2 - Felt good enough to go to a course and practice short game. Did chips, pitches and some easy sand swings. Below is one of my favorite drills, pitch shots over a bunker. I marked a hole in the other side with a tee. Did both short amount of green and a lot of green to work with.

Day 42

I spoke too soon. Saw some regression today with my swing but I noticed I was swinging harder than normal. Slowed it down and it got better but did not feel or look quite right.

Day 268 - Sept 21, 2020

Worked on chipping with Natalie at Kahkwa in advance of her PAT tomorrow.

Wow! Congrats and best of luck! I know that’s stressful even for folks who would otherwise have the game.

Day 57

Got to the Practice Facility tonight, warmed up with my 48* Wedge and then worked on my 6 Iron as it has given me fits this season. Then I hit a bunch of sand wedge shots from all over the practice bunker, fried egg, in foot prints, at the lips, feet out bunker ball in trap, sitting on top of sand,, at the back of the trap. It was a lot of fun.  Thenni worked my bump on run shots as well as out of the rough.

At the end I hit about 20 shots with my Driver. 

Fun night of practice showing lots of work needed.

@iacas, I wanted to ensure what I said was clear because I reread my post, I could see where you might misconstrue my words and intentions. I don’t think that’s the case though (I know we have our little “battles” here and there, but at least for my end, there’s a great level of respect). I was trying to wish her well and that I know it is very stressful. I know guys who have the game and they were really worried and barely passed when, in competition or a friendly round, they otherwise play really well. So please don’t take what I said to mean that I was saying she doesn’t have the game. I’m sure she does! Anyway, I just wanted to make that clear here. I apologize if my message was taken the wrong way. I wish her the best of luck. I’m sure she will do well!

    • Day 122.  More carpet putting;  larger room, a bit more time, different spot, same ruler.  I am beginning to think bead is not the problem with my putting. 
    • Great idea @cipher, yep I'm definitely interested.
    • Day 49 - More swings working on my new setup. 
    • Hello everyone. The golf gods have pulled me back in, and I’m hoping it will stick this time. Just scheduled my first lesson in over a decade, so maybe some financial investment will help keep me in the game. Here are a couple of swings from tonight. Now that I’m back, still working on getting more depth in the backswing.    9i DTL: 60-70 yard LW DTL: Plan is to get a couple of lessons and then a fitting. These clubs are too short and 17 years old at this point. The instructor fits Mizuno and Ping, and the new Hot Metals Pros look great. The new Ben Hogan’s are also quite attractive, but I won’t have a fitting option. 
    • As someone who plays roughly 6 month of the year with rain gear I feel qualified to say, most, if not all rain gear is an enormous struggle to fit.    Let’s start with pants. They are ALWAYS too long with a waist that is not matching, usually too small. Foot-Joys pants are lousy elastic in the waist and I have to wear a clip at the bottom to avoid dragging my pants all over the golf course. Nike has the best in my opinion. Sizing is easier and not ridiculously long length.    Jackets rarely offer much “give”. Most are hard to swing in. I have purchased the $250 top of the line, same problem. I recommend undersizing as many of the good brands will do a fair amount of stretching. Foot-Joy when undersized is good, also I like Nike undersized also. Nike has quite a bit of give and is the best in my opinion.  I also have an Under Armour that gives nicely too.    I don’t like pullovers but that is probably personal preference. Hard to get on and off easily. Don’t get me started on zippers. Foot-Joy has nice zippers, everyone skimps there and it is the first place the jacket begins to break down.
