Day 333 - November 27, 2020

Played 18 holes with @Hardspoon today. Back was a little funny, and it was muddy but not wet. Back was fine but my body just wouldn't cooperate and swing. Pissed me off. 🙂

Well I'm at 276 consecutive days. 1/1/18: I did my path drill indoors today. For those of you who don't know what this is, it involves 2 to 4 water or soda bottles a club and a foam ball. I

Day 48: went to the range today to do some shaft/club head comparisons. I picked up a 75g Project X Hzrdus Smoke Black 5.5 shaft for my 3 wood. I use a 60g for my driver, which I really like. My current 3W shaft is an Aldila NV 2KXV Blue 70g R shaft. I’ve been having trouble with dispersion with the Aldila. I also have an Aldila NV 2KXV Orange 75g R shaft which is higher launching. I did not do MEVO because this range has horrible balls. But general feel was the PX shaft launched a tiny bit lower, but it felt easier to control with a full swing.

I also put Project X LZ 5.5 shafts in my Mizuno MP59 6 and 7 irons, switching from TT AMT Black R shafts. I play these shafts in my Titleist 716 CB irons. I really like the launch and feel of these shafts. The Mizuno head launches a bit higher but felt excellent. 
 

There is another range that has better balls that I will go to during the week when it’s less crowded and use the MEVO.

Day 334 - November 28, 2020

Worked on the backswing again. Arms feel like they ONLY lift or go up, turn carries them back a little bit. Still feels like, when I do it properly, that the path is out to start and not inward at all.

Day 1

worked on my pendulums and practiced some green reading for 20-30 mins before being picked up for an impromptu 6 holes of golf as my buddies drove by the practice area on their way to their 3rd tee box. I was topping/thinning shots today... which was weird, but hit some great sand shots and putted well (for me).  I tried the “butterfly grip” for my sand shots after watching a video and was pleasantly surprised. It felt awkward as all get-out, but produced some of my best sand shots that I can remember.

Day 335 - November 29, 2020

20 balls downtown after some lessons/juniors. Focused on making sure the arms don’t lift AWAY - the arms LIFT and the turn carries the hands in. I don’t have to take the hands BACK as the turn does that too.

Day 2

went to course for an hour of chip & putt. Worked on Pendulums but was frustrated as this course rolled closer to a 10 whereas the course I went to yesterday was closer to an 8. So my pace was way off and (while a better putter would be able to make those quick adjustments) I really struggled to find the right pace for those 30-40ft lags. 
Chipping was decent.

Day 352

Played 18 today. Really stiff and sore from painting and moving furniture around all weekend, so only carried 8 clubs. Focused on good takeaway/backswing and tempo. Played pretty well, except for 2 holes where I was +7.

Great day, just felt real nice, solid 60 minutes.

    • Yes I have 2* weaker loft on my irons. Because I love traditional lofts and I hit it equal distance with 36*, but with more spin.
    • And with that, you lose. (In the minds of many.)
    • Perhaps that guy is(was) the exception? Plus, I think the 6,000,000 number might be way low. ... not that it matters. I get your point and I also immediately thought of that guy. It's kind of hard to argue that he's not 100% evil. For now, I think it would be wise to leave him out of the conversation. That one is still very painful for a lot of folks.  Having said all of that. I don't think we've ever had a president who is(was) 100% evil. 
    • Yeah, it’s an old topic. Was more appropriate here than the 2021 TOC topic.
    • Haven't posted a video in a while. I have been working really hard on my swing... REALLY HARD.  Anyway, I don't have any new video to post. But I do have some old video to post.  I'm just sticking these here as a benchmark to where I was. The first one is a 2009 video of my driver swing. This is back when I was working with my previous swing coach. I was playing well at the time, handicap was around 10-14. My miss at the time was a snap hook.  I know the exposure stinks. Again, it's just a benchmark for me.    The next two videos are from 2015. At the time I was between swing coaches. My handicap at the time was around 16. Although I distinctly remember playing some great and some horrible rounds at the time. At the time I was really REALLY REALLY fighting the snap hook. Some days the snap hook would be manageable and I would score really well. Other times, I simply wouldn't be able to get off the tee. The swing coach I would get about a year and a half after these videos were taken would be the swing coach I'd end up sticking with up until now.  Again, I'm just sticking these here for my reference.
