DAY 124   Spent 3 hours on the putting green making 100 putts from 2, 4 and 6 feet as part of the 10,000 Putt Challenge and did a lot of random putts of 30 feet plus working on distance control.  Then spent 2 3/4 hours on the range doing motions drills from my GGGA Workbook... focused on staying in posture throughout swing and downswing sequence.  I am exhausted.  Now time for dinner!!

Day 6

March 24, 2018

20 minutes putting 3-6 feet working on aim stance and stroke.

Today I used the 3 foot steel ruler at 6 feet to work on starting the ball on line, while also working on stroke, then removed the ruler and tried to repeat the setup, aim, and stroke.

DAY 125     Spent 2 1/2 hours plus on the range -- using Motion Drills from my GGGA Workbook.  Focused on remaining in my posture throughout the swing and the downswing sequence.  Then played 6 holes before heading home for dinner.  I was 1 under par for the six holes, hit all six greens in regulation... and a couple of putts lipped out or the score would have been better.   Before I went out I spent 30 minutes working through drills on my KPlayer (posture at address, half way back, top of backswing and impact).

Day 84

Easy day in the wind. Spent time on the putting green.  Mostly 5' putts, with a few longer ones thrown in there. Only used one ball, dropping it in different areas, for different pins. Used one ball for simulated course. play.

Focus was on reading the green for the shot at hand. I made it a point to have more breaking putts, than the straight ones. That is if there is such a thing as a straight, longer putt. Most of my breaking putts missed on the high side. Two even dropped in from the top side of the hole. 

One pin gave me fits. One of those if you try to make it, and miss, you wind up having a longer putt than before. Sometimes even from off the green. This was really a 2 putt hole, with first putt just to get close, without rolling away. .

Day 51 - March 25, 2018 - Top Golf for an hour. First time. Had a good time… after I figured out how much shorter the balls go (15% is a reasonable estimate).

Day 85.

Just some warm up range work prepping for 8:30 tee time. Focus is on hitting chosen landing areas with various irons. Easy swings

Going to do something different today. I'm playing with 3 old friends. I am going to play all irons. 2 - LW. There will be a driver in my bag, but don't intend to use it. Just a fun round. Expect to break 90....just barely.

Day 360:

More work today with my P4 to P5 drill. Mostly making sure my trail elbow is close to my body as it has been throughout this process.

Day 1- back on the daily training. . .

3 reps with a minute pause in between full swing reps with a couple less aggressive warmup reps. Stretching hamstrings. Working on slow movements through the transition. Tai Chi slow with weight shift incorporated into movement. Also keeping the lead wrist well pronated. Full coil backswing, lead arm straight getting past parallel. I have to focus on retaining the C-spine posture. Used a roller to work the upper back/shoulders, lats, glutes and calve muscles. Using a swing sequencing version 3 club simulator with a swing speed radar to do the above. will be using this from now on with or without SS monitor.

Morning weight 200.6

DAY 126   Spent 45 minutes on the range working on downswing sequence and good contact.  The played TPC Prestancia's Players Course from the Blue Tees,   Shot 76!!  Played with two members who were great in coaching me where to hit off the tee, and lots of other course knowledge.  Left  my Game Golf in the car, so will probably post the round tomorrow.  Now for dinner.

Day 2:

20 minutes or so working on tempo and weight forward

Images are from my zepp device and show some of today’s averages and one swing in particular which shows hip rotation

What I was pleasantly surprised about was how consistent those hip rotation numbers were without me paying close attention to it. 

Normally I’m only like 15-20 degrees open when I’m not thinking of it... so this resembles progress in the direction of better habits (knock on wood)

    • I suck, but I won $30 off my buddies so successful day I guess. I struck the ball really well all day but I had trouble finding fairways (5/14 just 1/7 on the front) this led to a ton of tree trouble that I didn't do a good job of managing. Had 10 GIR but only 2 birdies should have had more I had probably 6 looks under 8' and a few more under 15' but had some yippy strokes and didn't make much of anything all day. I was 0/7! on par saving putts my short game was pretty awful.   
    • Haven't decided if I'm going to let it count yet, but I got birdies on 1, 7 (definitely not counting this one as it was on a provisional green and played a lot shorter than normal) and 13 on my homecourse on Saturday. It was from the the red tees. I'll let it count, but with red number for now. Will hopefully be replaced with black/yellow numbers later this summer.  Missed a 12 feet eagle-putt on 1 (460 yard par 5) and sunk a 2 feet tap-in birdie on 13 (350 yard par 4) 
    • I'm with you. I pretty much don't think about it while hitting my full shots. But I always seem think about it when I'm lining up a birdie putt. I'm like "Ooo, this would be a nice one to cross off." or sometimes I just remember that I've already got this one.  The last two times I've played I've had reasonably good chances at birdie on number 7. Which at my course is a 170 +/- 10 or so par 3 over water. It's a tough hole because it's back in the corner or the golf property and kind of secluded from the wind. That is until your ball gets up in the air. Anyway, I've never birdied it. I've had two shots at it lately with putts of around 7-8 feet. 
    • Played 18 holes from the yellows (6210 yards, par 72, rating 72,7, slope 147) and was all over the place.  Shot 92 and had some excellent stretches of holes and some really bad ones. On holes 9 to 14 i made 5 pars and 1 double, only hitting 2 fairways, 1 green and only using 8 putts on that 6 hole stretch. It was looking like a good mid 80s round till after hole 15. +8 on the last 3 holes of the day is just a very, very sad way to end a round.   Shot of the day was my tee shot on hole 4, a 192 yard par 3. With a slight breeze in the back I hit a 7i to 8 feet past the hole. It landed a foot past the hole and it looked so good I stopped breathing while the ball was in the air. Missed the birdieputt, but still a great hole.  4/13 fairways, 2/18 greens! and 30! putts. A strange round of golf.
