DAY 58 January 30th.  I dragged myself out the door and headed to the range to continue to work on my game.  I was a tired from the hours I have been putting in on the range, and a couple of projects for upcoming tournaments.  The Heroes Ladies Intercollegiate which starts next weekend.  I am the team leader for the Scorers and Shuttle Drivers.  The scorers will be entering the scores live throughout the tournament.... so scheduling, communicating, ....  Then the LECOM Suncoast Classic a Korn Ferry event starts the next week and I am a chairman of a group of volunteers for that event.

Now about the almost 4 hours I spent on the range.  I started with the Super Speed Challenge, knowing my speed was down from being tired, and yes indeed, I never cracked 100 mph, all 5 swings were either 98 or 99 mph.  I even checked the unit with a half speed swing... and it registered 50 mph so I know it was working.

Then a long range session, hitting almost 300 balls.  I went through almost 25 different drills, when doing that today I was focusing on my rotation with my hips and not "goat humping"  then on my right shoulder coming down and under versus around.  Making progress.

Day 29 - Same as yesterday, key #2 drill using Mirror Vision. I’ll do this a couple more days before filming some swings for Evolvr.

Day 26 - got opportunity to play today at the 2nd closest course to my home, regular course was closed due to frozen greens.  Course was relatively empty, so it was easy to work on footwork, specifically setup on pitches and chips.  Continued working on foot spacing.  Found that by taking a moment and locking in on where my feet are, things flowed. Not fat shots, very controlled distances, no soaring blades.  Wound up shooting my beat round there to date by 7 strokes, that could have been easily 14 fewer!

DAY 59  January 31   Went to the course... and begin by spending 15 minutes using the Pelz Putting Tutor to train and get feedback on starting the ball on line... I was satisfied with the results.

Then headed over to the range to work through several drills.... in short it was a disaster!!!  It was soooo frustrating.  Something was wrong and I could just not figure it out.  Finally I decided that my tempo was not consistent and I was swinging way to slow and carefully.  This happens for me when I spend several days on drills.  So I turned on my Tour Tempo app, and set it to play the 27/9 tempo.  I decided I would use my driver... at first it seemed a little fast, only because I had been too slow from all the drills. Then my tempo kicked in and I smashed a lot of drives in a row!!  Then I hit 20 balls with my 7 iron, and again I hit them cleanly, straight and long.   So while it started poorly it ended well... lesson learned.   Work on your tempo more often!!!!

Day 1 - After a rather lengthy and particularly unproductive swinging session on Saturday, I must have subconsciously put it out of my mind so deep that I forgot to post about it here to break my streak.  And yesterday, between digging myself out of the snow all day, and the freedom of not being bogged down by a streak, I took the day off.

Today, I tried to focus on drills and confirmation rather than swinging blindly into a net for way too long.  I did just that.  Spent some time watching golf Sunday, and watching how the back of their left hands traveled through the backswing.  Really tried to notice how quickly the back of their hand got to be parallel to the plane.  Today, I did some drills to try and drive that home.  Get my forearms to turn my hands over and swing my arms around my spine with the back of the hand defining that plane.  Felt pretty good and effortless.  Will try to do these drills all week and see where that gets me.

Day 28 - quiet day of putting work.  Did this one in sock feet - focusing on foot pressure.  As the left foot is toeless, I have a tendency to overload the right when standing.  In socks on the hardwood floor allows me to focus on balanced pressure through the tic-toc of the swing.  Likewise, much work on keeping the head still - could not hear the clunk of a ball in the cup as it was with foam balls....good workout on learning to be quiet and trusting the stroke.

DAY 60  February 1    Monday's are my days off from going to the range.... thank goodness it was 59 degrees out and 20 mph winds, who wants to spend hours in that!!  So I went into the garage and worked with my backside slight off the wall and did swings with a shortened PVC pipe.  This provides feedback on my working my hips properly on the downswing versus thrusting toward the ball, and also that I need to move my arms down under my chest.  Great drill!! 

Tomorrow is cold also... so probably back to the garage!! LOL!!

    • Might be slow, but I'm sorta liking these guys...
    • Slow play is not keeping up with the group in front, unless its a group of really fast players.   The question is how to remedy it.  I play with guys who shoot high 70’s low 80’s whose pre-shot routines are intermidable.  In addition they are elderly and just move slow.  So as the young-un in the group I rush, especially on the green.  They play from the correct tees, it just takes them forever to go thru their routine.   Yesterday I played as a single.  Arrived at the course at 3 and was told to be off before 5 due to league play. I finished in 92 mins and played thru two other groups.  My goal is to not 3 putt and no 7’s on the card.  Shot 85. High scores does not automatically mean slow play.  
    • Day 63, July 27, 2021: Three-quarter swing work again today, hey I may lose a little bit of distance, but I know where the ball is going. Rinse, Repeat, keep working on it kind of deal. I’m having small successes with the 3/4 swing so something must be working.
    • Day 153.  Before grocery shopping, I stopped at a putting green and worked for half an hour on 3' and 30' putts.  The end of the 3' practice included taking 17 shots to finish all 12 for my clock drill (not great, but not as bad as a month ago) and the 30' finished with my final six putts from 30' (due to this green, they weren't significantly different on the clockface, so I'm still getting a similar read, but I know better than to assume it.  And of course, I had to hit them the right speed) with a total of 11 strokes (five 2-putts and I also sank one). After lunch and before gym, I did the quarantine days 9 (again, with feedback from yesterday) + 10 (which took a while to get right... I'm not even sure I got it right, video to show up later today). Addendum:  I haven't figured out my trigger for the day 10 practice plan.  That's going to take me a bit more thought
    • MD: 89 (Black/Orange combo tees): 89. Up and down sandy on 17th was nice. One of my better sand shots of the week.  SV: 98 (Black tees).. Tough day. Bit too much of a course for me from black tees. Drive on 18 uphill was a bright spot that stood out though.  SV: 89 (Orange tees).. phew.. much better. 2nd shot on 16 uphill from 198 out over bunker with a borrowed 3 iron (thanks @DeadMan.. :-)) that dropped and stopped within a two feet for a kick-in might be the shot of the week for me.  LL: 92, 92 back-to-back on the same day. Tried my darndest hard to break 90 but couldn't twice. Best shot 8 iron on 7th par 3 from 155 for a bird.  Lac La Bell: 107. Forgettable day score-wise except for holes 15-16 where I finally hit couple of good drives.
