My post from yesterday did not record so I hope this counts:

Day 67

worked on easy extension drills with a chair behind me. Focused on not separating from the chair. 

Day 68

 played 18 today. Ball striking was still showing progress although I started to fight a big hook with my driver on the back 9. Putting and chipping continues to cost me strokes. 37 putts today even with a hole-out. I need to work on my short game badly.

Day 310

Played 18 focusing on takeaway without regripping my right hand, and making a good, full turn. Hit the ball well for the most part, but did have three really, really bad swings where I did the “regrip during takeaway” thing which resulted in costly misses. Redo those three swings and I think I would have scored pretty well, but that’ not how it works, so ended up scoring a 94 with one each of a quintuple, quadruple, and triple bogey.

Day 120.  Five minutes putting on a ruler on carpet.  Made most of them go the full 36" on the ruler (and continue another several feet).  I didn't bring my cord for GG on the trip so I can't analyze yesterday's round just yet, but I suspect putting was a culprit.  I feel like on half or more of the bogey holes, I had a <= 8' putt for par, but I made approximately none of them.

Day 69

I continued incorporating early extension drills into my normal practice routine along with the Covid pitching drill. Also rolled a few putts down a yard stick.

Day 18: Play 18 at a new course in RI, Fenner Hill. Very nice. Drove the ball well with 50% fairways, but some were just off. Greens were fast!

Day 311

Did more takeaway and backswing practice. Did some slow rehearsals in the mirror to make the connection between the position I am trying to achieve visually, and the feeling in my legs/hips/shoulders. Hit 20 balls with a 7-iron after, with a rehearsal before each ball.

Was going to do a superspeed workout this evening, but a stupid injury is going to delay restarting that for a couple days at least.

Day 312

Putted a bit in my office because I am on-site today to take care of a few things before resuming the WFH routine. If my shoulder/back is feeling okay, I might do some short game practice later today.

spent an hour on the range chipping/putting and getting some video of my full swing. I’ll get it up either tonight or tomorrow.

Day 122.  More carpet putting;  larger room, a bit more time, different spot, same ruler.  I am beginning to think bead is not the problem with my putting.

Day 71

pitching drills and my normal swing routine. Paying extra attention to my downswing feel to clean up my plane.

    • Updated Nevada rules, have to start wearing a mask on the range, went into effect yesterday 👎 Doing a lot of slow reps, taking it to 4 withe knees staying over the feet and then breathing into it. Legs are looking more stable, matching up well with the handle being more forward/shaft steeper on the downswing. When I can keep the femur "spread" it feels like the club works "straighter" into the ball rather than under and out to the right.   
    • Day 348 Superspeed workout and some tempo drills with 7-iron. Hit the ball really shitty, hope it was the dark. 
    • Isn’t the ‘low spin’ pertaining to the inner core as far as a smashed hit as with driver and not with a descending hit with grooves as from an iron? 
    • No. I only have 3: 48, 54, and 60. I’d rather have more clubs at the longer end of the bag. It is generally far easier to finesse a wedge than a long club. Additionally, when you finesse a wedge, it’s easier to retain spin and hold the green. Conversely, when taking something off a longer club, it’s harder to maintain spin and adequate landing angle to retain the green. Therefore, I’d rather have more opportunities at a stock number on the longer end of the bag than carry an additional wedge. 
    • Iron set wedges are 44(Pw) and 49(aw) vokeys are 54s and 60k set wedges are mainly full Shots. The 54 does everything inside 75 yards except bunkers and if I’m short sided in rough (that’s the k) I’m thinking of getting new irons next spring but wondering if I’ll have to get a 50 degree wedge (will most likely drop my 4h if 5i is long enough) with all of these new long hitting irons. Rogue x has a 46 degree gap wedge!
