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.

    • If you’re using your wedge as a shovel, it’s not the bounce that’s the problem.
    • I like to collect these too, I'm an old guy who likes real hard copies, I have about 70 of them from courses all around the country and the world.  I know I have a few of the ones you show in this photo.  I also have brand new books for Sand Valley and Mammoth Dunes, ready to be used in a month from now..
    • As others have mentioned, this assumption is incorrect. The ball could be sitting on the right half of the cart path and the nearest point of complete relief be on the left.
    • The NPCR is point for the ball which affords complete relief for STANCE and SWING from the condition from which you are taking relief, is no closer to the hole, and is nearest the original position of the ball (with a couple more restrictions).  This sounds like we agree, take.  This general description comes from the definition of Nearest Point of Complete Relief.  As others have said, this NPCR might mean you have to drop in a bush or behind a tree or on the side of a steep slope on in really tall grass, you don't get a choice, you have to use the nearest.  So make sure you know where your drop will be before you pick up your ball. In your link, go to 16.1b, just after Reference Point, if you click on the phrase "nearest point of complete relief" you will automatically be linked with the Definition for that term.  This is a really positive thing about the Rules of Golf online, in both the R&A and the USGA versions, all defined terms referenced in the Rules are shown as hyperlinks to the actual definition.  You may want to read through the Interpretations on this Rule and Definition, they make it pretty clear.
    • What is there to be confused about? You haven't taken relief until you are taking FULL relief, meaning you aren't standing on the path (or whatever it is). So--- the closest position is the closest position. Otherwise, in the illustration below, relief would be at B2 if you were on the right hand side of the path (or whatever). Which wouldn't be relief.
