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]

Day 31 - headed to a family event so did a quick 5 minutes of mirror work still on the same piece of getting the club more upright on the backswing and shallow on the downswing.

    • HRV points toward recovery more than sleep from what I have seen. My sleep is always high but my recovery may or may not be. 101, nice! I was talking to a friend of mine and his is always high. He showed me a screenshot from yesterday and it was 115.  I made it a point to look at my strain this morning when I woke up but before I got moving around much. It was 0.0 as well so I believe you’re correct on hitting the heart rate threshold. I have just never looked at it that quickly. 
    • If you are 'old' you will surely be familiar with the pre 2019 definition of 'Lost Ball'. The new version says  Lost/1 – Ball May Not Be Declared Lost A player may not make a ball lost by a declaration. A ball is lost only when it has not been found within three minutes after the player or his or her caddie or partner begins to search for it. For example, a player searches for his or her ball for two minutes, declares it lost and walks back to play another ball. Before the player puts another ball in play, the original ball is found within the three-minute search time. Since the player may not declare his or her ball lost, the original ball remains in play.
    • I'm in the same boat as Dave. We golf together often, go to sporting events together and it's all about the grand children when it comes to sports and sporting activities. I did vote for "Other"
    • Plumbrook is short and none too difficult. But a fun course to play and go try to hit bombs all day. If you really play it to score (For me long irons or fairway woods off the tees for well placed pitch and chip in opportunities) it can be an easy course to score on. Greens are usually in good shape and roll true. I lived very close to Chandler Park until I got married in '91 at the age of 32. I used to play 9 in the morning on my way to work on those long days close to the summer solstice.
    • How to get rid of the stuff, that is the question I have. I don't feel like just throwing out my stuff but the thought of selling, packaging and shipping is not appealing. Plus I don't think my stuff is worth anything really. At last count I had 11 putters, 6 drivers, three sets of irons, and an untold number of wedges, chippers, hybrids, etc. Is there a place you can donate to?
