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!

    • This season I was consistently shooting in the high 80s. Played some of my best golf and I am really happy with how straight I am hitting the ball right now. The ONE thing I would change in my game is simply the height of my drives.    I hit about a hundred balls today on trackman and with the driver I am getting average clubhead speed of 120 mph, launch angle 7 degrees, 268 yds carry. It’s bugging the hell out of me to see these low bullet balls, and despite trying all this year to deliver more loft (I’ve had a few lessons trying to fix just this issue alone), I just can’t seem to do it.  I currently play a stiff shaft Taylormade R1 set to 12 degrees loft. I’m thinking about possibly experimenting with one of those super lofted (16 degree) drivers. Has anyone ever tried this, and if so did it actually make a difference? In advance I just want to also say, yes, I agree an equipment fix in this case is a bandaid for a larger problem. But I’m also just trying to have fun with my game and if buying a higher lofted driver helps this problem, I’m happy to take it for now.  
    • Day 129.  During the workday, went to the next door room to hit some 6-iron shots;  indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls. 
    • Day 320 Superspeed workout, then some mirror work on takeaway/backswing, and finally hit some balls with 7-iron. Hit the ball well today. Still searching for a good feel/thought to take on course for backswing piece. Current one is okay, but I think I can come up with something better. 
    • Update - I sent an email to Arccos support about my Caddie Link order, again, and received this prompt reply (in part): "... We did begin fulfilling pre-orders at the end of September and then the first week of October our manufacturer informed us that due to COVID they are unable to acquire the needed materials to complete further devices for the next couple of weeks so shipments have halted for the time being. Shipments of the devices will commence the first week of November. We greatly apologize for this delay and issue and once they send yours out we will be sure to send you tracking and status updates."
