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.

Day 294 - October 17, 2020

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]

    • I get it. Didn't go do a fitting. I ordered the clubs with the same specs from my last fitting. Only thing I changed was going from Project X LZ 5.5 to Accura I80 stiff shafts.
    • Use the 2MP camera and just record separate swings. Everyone does. No need to record the same swing - your swing is pretty much the same every time.
    • My travels were to driving to Northern Michigan. Garland (Lewiston, MI) in July was originally planed for May but was pushed back.  Nice thing was they let us keep the “Early Bird” rate.  This was shen I got my 1st Ace 😃. Then went to Treetops (Gaylord, MI) in September.   Both trips involved masks & social distancing but were good, enjoyable trips. The breakfast buffets were cancelled but not a big deal.
    • Good and sad tales, kind of understand that. So I left Oahu that had high concerns of controlling it to an Island that had yet to get 1 case.  All was well until Wednesday 4 popped positive, Thursday 38 and today Friday 60 something. I was tested and none in my circle including an 85 year old woman has had any issues.  So the governor/mayor answer is a lockdown. How do you lockdown an island where the population is but a postage stamp on the entire island? No worries, I plan on golfing next week. I got to log a few more birdies on the 2020 birdie challenge. Aloha, iSank
    • What's the minimum camera quality will you guys consider watching? The rear camera for my phone is 2MP and the front camera is 0.3 MP. I only have one camera and a tripod, so I can't record the side and behind at the same time. Is that OK?
