Day 307

Worked on takeaway, specifically not moving my right hand grip. Did 20 rehearsals and grip checks.

Did some airplane/helicopter drill working on getting lead shoulder behind the ball. Then did 20 rehearsal backswings to that point.

Finally hit some balls trying to put it all together.

Been 2 weeks since last superspeed workout, so will start that again next week.

Day 117.  I know it's a 5 minute challenge, but I'm not super excited that many days I'm doing only five minutes (or close to it).  So today, I spent 40 minutes hitting balls (usual meaning;  so, slow rehearsal swings etc, not just beating balls) indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls.  One of these days I'll do this outdoors and not on the course and will get video for evolvr again :-)

Day 66

Spent time on the Covid Pitching drill. Turning my focus to getting back to a more balanced approach to my practice since my full swing has been much improved. I'm not stopping my work on my full swing but I need to stop neglecting the rest of my game if I am going to see score improvement.

Day 15: Got in 18 before the rain today. Well, almost. Rained on 18. Drove better playing the ball just off my left big toe and teeing it up higher.

Day 308

Pretty much same deal as yesterday. Worked on takeaway and not moving my right hand stronger on the grip. Only 10 rehearsals and checks today, and squeezing the club harder with my trail hand feels more natural now.

Did some more airplane/helicopter drill working on getting lead shoulder behind the ball. Then did 20 rehearsal backswings to that point getting lead shoulder behind the ball, and weight/pressure onto the inside of my trail heel.

Hit 20 balls with a 7-iron being mindful of all the previous stuff.

Did some partial wedge practice as well to unwind, with 20 shots each with GW and SW, trying to hit my standard distances for my 50% "feel" swing. My distances, on strikes that are not a little thin or a little chunky are usually +/- 5 yards of expected, which is pretty good for me.

Hit some balls downtown working on my same old piece (backswing stuff). Putted (quite successfully) with my foot at the course.

Day 119.  Do I know how to play golf?  I messed up (very badly) the first five holes (+11 through 5) and still posted a 91 (ESC from 92).   Had an 8 on hole 2 and a 2 on hole 8.   Improved my standing in the 2020 TST Birdie Challenge (home course) to +3 and had short putts on holes 1, 10, and 15 that would have improved me on those too.  How have I only played seven rounds at my home course in 2020? [not being in the same city hurts my ability to do that]

    • What is happening is the layers of the material the shaft is made of are breaking down. Some graphite shafts are made in a veneer like manner think of it as thin sheets of graphite are overlaid to create the shaft. Bottom line is the shaft need to be replaced. You can find replacement shafts on ebay that are inexpensive.
    • Little slow in posting this, still smiling over this shot. Last Saturday I played at Oldfield CC in Bluffton, SC.  It was a rainy day. #2 I hit my Drive straight down the right hand side of the fairway into the bunker about 260 to 270 in the rain.  Looking at my ball I was sitting about 155is out in the trap, the trap was wet so the sand was not fluffy that relieved me as I felt the shot would easier then. I went up a club as I usually do from a fairway bunker.  Decent lip to clear but felt I could get my 7i up in time to do it.  I went for a standard all ball contact before ground, hovered my club and nailed it perfectly.  It was a beautiful looking ball and landed pin high just right at about 10' from the pin and just stuck there. Missed the putt for birdie but got my par. Still feels good thinking about how that shot felt and flew.
    • Shot a 79 yesterday, that I wasn't necessarily proud of. Started out great. It seemed so easy, a 38 on the front 9, then for some reason, lost my swing on the back and carded a 41 with 2 double bogeys. and a bogey. Today, I made up for it with a pair of 37's, for a nice 74. 2 bogeys, 6 pars, and 1 birdie per 9. Nice consistent golf.
    • Speaking of deniers... it's been several months since I've heard anyone say covid-19 is not as bad as the flu.  276,000 covid deaths later (vs. 22,000 flu deaths) and those deniers have gone silent. And speaking of vaccinations... I like the idea of the $1500 incentive to get the shot(s).  Though I think $1000 would get the same results.  I bet that incentive would move 70-80% of the anti-vaxers off the schneid.  They're fickle and easily bought. Then we'd quickly get our herd immunity.  And I can remove this damn mask.
