Day 298 - October 21, 2020

I hit balls while waiting for a student to show up today. So sore. I made small swings, as I've been doing so much wire pulling and reaching and work and lifting and carrying the past two days (with carpet installation and moving things, etc.).

Day 20: Played 18 today. Foggy at the beginning. My rangefinder didn’t work!😜 Played OK. My driver is coming along nicely. My long irons, 3W and hybrid need work.

Day 299 - October 22, 2020

Did some putting while messing with an audio sync issue on the new TV. I think resetting the DirecTV might help fix it, but stuff is recording right now. 😄

The new living room carpet will not really work for putting at all. It's very "textured."

Day 123.  Yesterday (10/21) was the second miss within 30 days (yesterday + 10/13;  previous miss was more than 30 days ago).

Today, I did 45 minutes of putting practice, around the clock drills from 4', generally around 24 putts to finish the twelve,  thus averaging around 50% from 4' -- not good enough. 

Why am I able to do the ruler drill so well and miss so many within 4'?  Do they break that much?

Day 314

Did takeaway/backswing work. Not quite there with nixing the right hand regrip mid backswing, although significantly improved.

Still searching for a feel/thought for completion of backswing.

Day 316

Worked on figuring out a feel/thought to take on course for what I’m working on lately. Came to “right hand, right heel” as the mantra. “Right hand” part to not move my right hand into a strong grip during takeaway. “Right heel” part to get my weight pressure into the inside of my right heel, which means I’ve done a good turn.

Hit about 30 balls, using this thought.

    • Day 347 Did rehearsal backswing practice in patio door mirror. Then did some tempo drills with 7-iron hitting balls at about what felt like 75% speed. 
    • Day 2 Week 5 Worked on 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9 irons. Focus on that 3/4 swing and correct grip.  Finished up the session with my Driver 
    • I play local sports podcasts on a Bluetooth speaker in my cart, but only when playing by myself (which I usually do) or with my family for whom I know it doesn’t bother.
    • Weird Science, bogey. This movie is just dumb, and only nostalgia keeps this from being a double or worse. Additionally, the fact that it's like 80 minutes helps. At least it's over quickly.
    • I enjoy posting these and going back through the thread and reading my old thoughts on my round. Also happy I was able to play today even though the temperature was around 42 degrees. The theme of my round was greens. More specifically missed greens. Front wasn’t awful. Hit 5 greens. Hit a SW to tap in range at 9 for a birdie and played the front at +3. I did miss at the 3rd with a gap wedge. Missed at 6 with a 9 iron. Back 9 was a mess. I hit one green. My really bad misses were at 10 with a gap wedge, 12 with a U wedge, 14 and 16 both with SW in hand and to compete the side I dunked a 9 iron in the drink at 18. All I had to do was par the 18th to stay under 80. And I made double for 81. Actually drove the ball well. Funny I shot 2 under a few weeks ago while hitting 3 fairways all day. Today I hit 7 fairways and couldn’t break 80. Hope this isn’t my last round for the year. Like to end on a better day.
