Day 67.  Played in a club tournament.  Shot an 83 (no birdies, nine pars).  Three double bogeys:  a GIR + 4 putts, plus two three-putts after missing greens (one from sand, one from a short sided pitc

Day 202: Range work before my COVID shot. Focused on setup and center face contact. It was a bit frustrating because what works on my home net setup is off on grass. Plus the dry erase wasn’t working because the grass was wet. My swings felt good, but I was off center.

Day 116 (2 May 21) - Played 36 on another putt-putt course in Myrtle (celebration of grandson’s b’day).  Both courses had some serious elevation changes/undulations.  Great exercise in green reading and pacing of ball.  Also the had putters with metal heads and regular balls such as Bridgestone, Pinnacle, etc.  Ball more realistic coming off the head thing.

Day 502:

Played 18 today. Worked in new rehearsal in pre-shot routine for recentering/flow and shoulder turn. Bad day scoring overall on account of two bad holes, but overall ball striking was better. Still a little inconsistent with start line. Short game was below average.

Day 30 (5/2/21) - Watched the Day 1 video for the 30-day practice plan and did the drills with intention and attention. Playing 18 tomorrow afternoon (it's great to be retired :-D) and will probably run through the drills again in the morning. Something which I determined that I did on Friday is Eric's warning about Seniors flipping the club inside and top up of the take away. Everything went really bad from there, so I want to ingrain the correct feeling.

Day 69.  Thinking about yesterday, I could have used some better trouble/recovery shots and some UW chip shots.  So I spent about ten minutes on each of them earlier today;  indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls.  5-iron low quarter shots, UW quarter swings.

Day 117 (3 May 21) - On the course today - with plenty of scrambling around the greens with wedges and irons.  Focused on where I wanted the ball to land and roll out after.  Bounce drills from last  year's COVID 19 challenge came into play as a good number of the shots rolled to where I was left to putt at 10' or less.  The bad part is the course we were playing has challenging greens, not in undulations/slopes but they are in very rough shape.  You cannot be hesitant or the corncob surfaces will get you.  It teaches a consistent-confident putting stroke.  Of course if I ever play an ultra nice course, I won't know how to putt......

Day 503:

Did some work with Live View Pro camera and foam balls checking on shoulder turn priority piece. Still missing the mark on this one and doing too much with arms/hands and not turning shoulders. Will work on exaggerating shoulder feel more and record again tomorrow.

Day 70.  Long day at work, but I was able to sneak out and practice quarter shots with my UW for about ten minutes (indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls).  Admittedly, this was done more to wind down and get my mind off of everything than practice, although that benefit was welcome too.

Day 204: Rain let up so I got to the range and worked on setup, alignment and center face contact. Still a bit off to start. Finished with short game work, sand and green side chips.

Day 493 - May 4, 2021

Kinda played nine holes today. DIdn't hit a bunch of putts or anything, just helped Natalie play along. Hit a good drive and a nice 5I to just shy of the third hole, a par five. Downwind more than usual. Not a lot of roll though.

    • I really can't think of disliking courses to a point of calling them the worst I have played from a design POV. Like few other post's above it is conditioning that can make me to not ever want to come back.   I've played a course where the 'greens' are simply tighter cut grass here locally (not sure worth mentioning the name. They weren't pretending to be anything better - $9 for the round). But of course, it was clear after the first hole that I had overpayed.. lol.  Although @mattm16, I would feel like an absolutely spoilt brat complaining about anything I've ever played looking at your 'course' pics. hah  
    • I'm not a fan of Pete Dye courses either, but Mike Strantz is the one I like the least, from a design perspective. 
    • I don't like courses that have a creek or hazard that spans like 250-280 off the tee, especially when its on a par 5.  My preference is to at least have the option to hit driver, totally fine if the landing area at 270 or whatever narrows or is tree lined or bunkers or something, but at least let it be an option, don't force me to lay up to 240 off the tee on a 525-550 yd par 5. There are at least 2 courses around me that have multiple of those holes and I steer away from those courses when possible. There is a 3rd course that has 2 holes like that too but those par 5s are shorter, more around the 500 yd mark, maybe even high 400s depending on where the tees are located so they're still reachable with 2 really good shots.
    • I've seen a guy do the toe/heal/toe/heal thing so that's why I was just making sure😉
    • Pete Dye forces you to play the course his way. Which means, on this hole, hit it 250, then hit it 150 to this green. He has a lot of constriction points, and force carry.  I played TPC Sawgrass, it is kinda meh visually. There are about 3 blind tee shots you need a caddy to tell you were to aim or you end up in a bunker or water. Then there is hardly any spots to run the ball up. His courses feel gimmicky.  Jack's courses are just meh to me. They are not fun to play. I think he puts to much priority in hitting the perfect tee shot. Its been a while since I have played one. My opinion now might change.
