Day 414:

Warmed up a bit working on priority piece with 7-iron before doing a superspeed workout. Not a great superspeed session. Also need to find a drill of some sort to work on getting sternum more over the ball instead of hanging back, as the current feels aren't doing it for me.

Day 399 - February 1, 2021:

Putted in the hallway while waiting for the shower to dry. The door is much better now, and the new silicone caulk looks nice.

Day 2 - Same story as yesterday.  Started out with drills to focus on takeaway and forearm rotation.  Then moved into a few full swings.  Doing my best to stay focused during the full swing portion.

Day 29 - Backyard chipping and some full swings.  Started with the chipping, focusing on half-back swings through follow-thru.  Again working on rotating through the swing to clear the hips.  Using my 845Silver Scot 8i, I worked on distance control - i.e. placing each shot about yard past the previous.  Also did the reverse with the shots starting about 2 yards apart but ending up at the same target.  Finished up with some full swings with the harder foam balls (they will fly close to 100yds on a full driver swing), using the 7i of the same set - good flight with these balls as they were starting right and coming back around to the left.  Historically I have always been pretty much start right and go further right.  Tomorrow, weather dependent, may be able to get back outside and do some more with the irons.

Day 111: Shovel. Shovel some more. Shovel a bit more. Then after I stopped feeling like that old Knight in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, I did some chipping in the basement.

Day 401 - February 2, 2021

I got off by one day so I'm making the adjustment here. I spent 30+ minutes downtown after a lesson working on the whole backswing motion. I recorded an earlier swing (my swing topic) and then worked on making it a bit shorter. Right thumb a little longer and a bit more on top, a bit more "down" in the backswing… Overall, pretty good though. Happy. Going to start working on the A3-A5 stuff.

Day 32 - Pretty busy day, didn't get around to filming for Evolvr. I did have time for slow backswings and getting my weight forward, though 🙂

Day 415:

Did some work with the COVID-19 practice plan Day-5 drill. I think this one might help me cover the ball more. I struggle with this drill for some reason, so I'm going to be working on it a lot.

DAY 30 - blast putting in office; focus on pendulum consistency. I will head over to course this afternoon and putt on green there as well since it'll be a balmy 45*

Day 30 - Work with the wedges (PW & GW) on 15 - 25 yard chip shots.  Created a new game called "fill the gap" - 1st shot at the longer distance around 25 yds, the 2nd shot around 20yds - then the remaining 3 shots had to "fill the gap".  1pt for every shot in the gap  (and online +/1yd either way), -1pt for short and -2 for long.  As I was using just 3 balls for scoring max points per session was 3.  I averaged 2 pts per round as I invariably would have one come up short.  Also worked on the ladder drill as noted in LSR.  Did okay, but could not consistently stack the ladder.  Good thing was the sunshine and my shadow - could use it to look at form in the address.

Day 402 - February 3, 2021

Good hour or so hitting about 50 balls. Didn't record anything, but strikes were solid even when easy, and swings were better lengths.

Day 416:

More COVID-19 day-5 drill. Seeing some improvement today after watching the video again. I think my pump of a couple inches was much too big, so once this was shortened contact improved.

After that I did some full swing warmup with 7-iron, and then a superspeed workout.

    • 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.  
    • Pretty amazing for a $500 box. Close enough for me.  
    • I played roller coaster golf. This is going to be a lengthy recap. I’m not expecting people to read through the whole thing; it’s more for my own entertainment purposes to go back over some of these holes. Day 1 (Sandbox and Mammoth Dunes) I made par on #16 at SB by hitting a PW as hard as I could to the front of the green and then putting from there to 8’ from the back hole location. The hole was 170 from the tee and the longest club I had was PW. It sounds a lot easier in writing than it was. I didn’t play that well at MD. Probably hit a few good drives, but I don’t remember doing anything remarkable. Day 2 (SB and Sand Valley) Made birdie on #7 at SB. Teed off with putter, hit it to 3’. Hit an 8i on #16 at SB to 8’. It’s a Redan and I hit a fade. @DaveP043 showed us how it’s supposed to be played by hitting a draw to the front of the green and letting the ball roll up to the hole about 6’ away. Didn’t play well at SV on the first round, but I hit some good drives and made a few pars, including on #18 where I hit driver-3w into the sand area to the right of the green, hit a 30 yard blind sand shot just off the green and made par from there. Day 3 (SB and SV) Birdied #7 again at SB. Again teed off with putter but not great, holed a 20’ putt for birdie. Quit golf on the 3rd hole at SV, so naturally, I birdied #4. Hit a good drive and 2h just left of the green, had a ridiculous putt from the top of a hill that hit a sprinkler head and trickled to tap in distance. Hit 4i-2h on #6, GIR and 4-putted. Dave measured my first putt - I was 40 yards from the hole. Hit a perfect drive over the sand pyramid on #7 (I was on top of it the day before), followed by an easy 2h I wanted to run up to the green, which I pulled slightly but it bounced off a hill and rolled onto the green anyway. Had a 30’ putt for eagle, 3-putted for par. Birdied #12. Like @saevel25, I also went driver-7i and put it on the green. Made par on #14 which I described in the Best Shot of the Week thread. That 6i was probably in the top 5 most pure shots I have ever hit. It started on the line I wanted, turned exactly how I pictured it, and flew exactly the right distance. Missed the 6’ putt for birdie which I really wanted to make with the other group watching on the tee. I hit a good drive on #18 and tried to hit a 2h into the fairway short of the green. Ended up flaring it way right into the Sahara. Matt later asked if I hit a good shot because it looked like I was posing, and I told him I was so gassed I just didn’t want to move after the shot 😂 Day 4 (Lawsonia Links x 2) Got my best score of the trip here with an 87 in our first round. I hit some good shots, but nothing really spectacular. Just made fewer mistakes overall. Made birdie on #9 after hitting my drive into the fescue. Hit a 7i back into the fairway and a low spinner to 3’, which was still outside Dave’s blind third shot from the fairway bunker which he put to 2’. Day 5 (Lac La Belle) Made a really good decision to grab breakfast at Fresh Baked Cafe in Oconomowoc. The beers were cold at the end of the round. I seriously played like crap.
