Day 14 - Finally making some progress with my weight shift, but my backswing has shallowed out a bit. Rehearsing some backswings to get that in a better place.

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 382 - January 15, 2021

27 balls focusing on the "out/up" part of the backswing. Some half swings (which were longer than that), some bigger. Also did my speed training stuff, with the Mach 3 stuff.

Day 397

Took it easy today and just hit some balls with 6-iron working on priority piece, with lots of slow rehearsals between balls. Also did a little bit of putting around the dining room table (on a rug).

DAY 43  January 15th   Started out around the chipping green, working on tempo using a Metronome.  Set at 65 bpm it smooths out my swing, ... I tend to rush on the downswing... so it helps.   Then over to the putting green for an hour... did the STAR Drill from 3 feet, (5 tees set up in a star pattern around the hole).  Had to go around 5 times without a miss -- which means you have to make 25 in a row.  Did that then distance drills from 20 and 30 feet.  Finally off to the range to work through some drills to help with rotation and stability  over the ball.  Finished with 20 drivers -- I can feel and see I am hitting them longer -- the Super Speed Challenge is paying off.

Day 11 - Worked on post impact follow through as I tend to stop rotating and making chicken wings.  Was able to do late setting sun chips/pitches where I could barely make out the flagsticks in the fading light.  Went to “see it/feel it/trust it” mode focusing on what I am feeling thru the setup, backswing, downswing and follow thru.....

Day 398

Played 18. Pretty rough round today, priority piece just not coming together quite right. Probably need to get some time on the driving range to see how different feels are translating to ball flight.

If I have energy this afternoon I'll do a superspeed workout and log in the TST gSheet.

Day 94: Cat in the Hat kind of day, so all I did was chipping in the basement. I also plan on taking one day off each week for full swing work.

Day 12 - set up the net in the back yard today to allow for full swings with all irons and metalwoods.  Work on driver face impact, i.e. footspray on the face.  Focus was on keeping the ball strikes in the center.  Did okay, most were just below centerline on center or just toward the toe.  Also work on the long irons, tend to fat them.  Used the mini mat setup about 6" behind the ball to keep from hitting fat.  This worked!  Will pick back up with tomorrow with more work on ball contact.  Also learned a great lesson - 7irons will clear the net if you set up just right.....had to retrieve one ball from the neighbors back yard....at least there was no broken glass or dented vehicles.

DAY 44  January 16   Spent a couple of hours on the range half of which was hitting drivers.  Trying to build more speed and consistency of hit.   I hit a few irons, but the grips... needed to be replaced, so I headed over to the PGA Superstore to have 6 irons re-gripped for free!!! Yes, FREE because I had a gift card :-)

Day 383 - January 16, 2021

Mach 3 stuff to demonstrate, not for me (I’ll do mine tomorrow), then in the few minutes I had between juniors and a group of five adults, hit about 15 balls. Less exaggerated than the previous time(s).

Day 13 - more straighter right elbow work. I was crushing it today (for me anyways). Admittedly, I had secondary focus of initiating the downswing with left hip and I think that was helpful. But ball contact felt great

Day 16 (of last 17, 3 in a row) - Used a rocker board to help with weight shift.  First time using one, didnt feel great while using it, but swings after using it seemed pretty good. Getting close to putting up some progress on my swing thread.

Day 384 - January 17, 2021

Small reset. Same backswing feel, but focused a bit on a turn and a small pressure shift, as I've been exaggerating it and then had to be super aggressive about going forward.

Hit some good ones at the right height and some shallow divots after awhile.

    • Congratulations. 16 yards is a ton. I'm curious. First, how did you arrive at 17 yards? Did you hit a bunch with your old gamer and then hit the SIM2? Second, What did you replace with the SIM2? And had you been fitted for that one?   
    • I've heard this rule suggested over and over again. I'm interested to hear what you all think. Should free drops be allowed from fairway divots? What about pick clean and place from a fairway divot?  Golf World Reacts To Paige Spiranac’s Bold Rules Suggestion Is golf in need of a rules change? Paige Spiranac believes so after watching the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday. On the final hole of the tournament, Lee Westwood smoked his drive down the fairway...    
    • A worst-ball scramble does not sound fun to me. It reminds me of some of the awful high school football conditioning drills our coach had us do at the end of practice. For example, each position group would have to run a quarter mile in full pads at the end of a 3 hour practice. The RB/WR groups had 60 seconds (not totally sure on the time, it was over 25 years ago). If anyone didn't finish in time, we had to do it again. And again. And again. Until everyone made it in the allotted time. It was completely miserable. That said, "fun" is personal preference. My sister loves running marathons, which sounds awful to me.
    • Hey All,  I just purchased a new SIM2, and boy oh boy am I excited.     Now, I don't want to sing the praises of the Sim2 too much here, because, honestly, I was getting very similar results from the new Cobra and Callaway as well.   But, while getting fit,..   ball speed was up, and launch angle and spin rate were much improved.  Also, it appeared I was making pretty significant gains in dispersion as well.   I know a lot of this has to do with the shaft I was fitted for, every bit as much (if not more than the head).    anyways, I'm excited.   thanks all.
