Day 291

A bit of indoor putting, recovering from what I hope is a short term food-related gastrointestinal issue.

Day 50

Worked my priority piece and same routine, but also played around with ball position and did some putting focused on cleaning up my stroke. For ball position I think I tend to play most balls too back in my stance. I'll really need to be on the range to work that further.

Day 18 -  playing in a couple of scrambled in the next week, so it hit some balls trying to not think about technique...just wanting to make solid contact.

Day 276 - Sept 29, 2020

Power was out yesterday, so I'm giving myself that day. I played 13 holes. Today I played 18, albeit from the white tees as the course was soft and Richard plays the whites. I hit two drivers. 😛

Day 102.  Ten minutes in the practice room after work;  6-iron, off a mat, indoors, into a net, real balls (when one was involved).

Day 51

I decided to mix it up today after going to Golf Galaxy to try out some new irons. I struck the ball terribly but realized I was overswinging as I'm prone to do on a simulator. It got me to thinking about the LSW section about practicing at the edge of your competence. I realized that I had been practicing with very slow swings and not redefining where my edge of competence was. So today I filmed a series of swings starting with what felt like 50% then moved up a little faster and progressed to a series where I was swinging like I did on the simulator. I found that with each step up the speed ladder my swing slowly deteriorated but was still much improved over where I started even at full speed. My conclusion was that I need to start practicing at about 75%-80% in the garage if I'm going to get to the next level. Those swings we're good but seemed to be the point where more flaws started showing up on occasion. If I can't get it mastered at that speed I might need to go to 60% or so and then try back at 75-80%. In reality I would like the 75-80% to be my standard swing and not always feel like I'm going after it hard every time when I'm on the course (which is a tough habit to break for me)

Day 2 - went to the range today, but ended up playing as no one was there.  Very windy. I skipped three holes to get around two old guy foursomes. Played in 2 hours.

Day 277 - Sept 30, 2020

Got in some good work with a 3I, 6I, and 9I earlier today after a lesson.

More of the same, as usual: hands feel like they go away from me, stay in front of me, and go up a little. Half swing. Then go as hard as I can down, with my collarbones.

Day 103.  Quarter and half swings with a gap wedge;  indoors, off a mat, into the net, real balls (except rehearsal swings, of course).  Done throughout the day, taking breaks from work in the adjacent room.

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long.
