Day 80.  Today is a bit of a cop-out, and I debated not posting it and taking the miss.  I gave blood this afternoon and hadn't practiced by that point, so I just did more wall drill rather than swinging a club after giving blood.  I'm not sure swinging a club would have been a bad idea, but I figured I need to ingrain this turn more anyway, so...

Day 213: Did range work in the morning making some adjustments to my driver stance. Play 9 in the PM and the changes worked really well. I widened my stance a bit to help reduce EE.

Day 128 (14 May 21) - Played 18 at one of the local courses today.  Messy play through the bag, big highlight was with the 54deg wedge as I purposed to use it around the greens, which with my play today was about 18 times.....had some good up and downs and one really good blade across the green on 17.

Day 81.  Actually hit balls today as the focus.  They were foam balls (in case they went wild, which they didn't), and I was focusing on the backswing and making sure my head went back and my chest went down.  I think I succeeded;  I submitted some video to Evolvr (yesterday's) to see if I'm moving in the right direction.

Day 40 (5/14/21) - 9-hole league tonight. Shot a 49, which was 8-strokes better than my last outing. The full swing drills seem to be paying off.

Day 41 (5/15/21) - Since I haven't cut my lawn in a week, its now like the worst rough you've ever seen ;-). I used the opportunity to practice Sieckmann's "c*ck and pop" shot from "Your Short Game Solution". Clearly, this is a REALLY low SV shot (in the past year there are only 2-3 times I could have used it) but since its useful on occasion, for short (5 yard) shots out of nasty greenside rough to a close pin, I took advantage of the opportunity. Additionally, I worked on pitching motion shots.

Day 129 (15 May 21) - went to the range this afternoon as I wanted to work on long sticks, 3w and 3h.  Warmed up by working thru bag starting w/58 and working every other club (odd numbers) thru driver.  Then did some practice holes, teeing with different clubs, varied approach shots, pitches and chips.  Finished up by working exclusively with the 3w and 3h, working with grip positions to bring push fade under control.

Day 82.  I hit a few foam balls today (indoors, off a mat, into a net) with a 6-iron, focusing on my backswing with the latest priority piece.  I'm starting to find the ball on the downswing, hopefully I'm doing it right...

Day 517:

Played 18 today with new concepts/feels from my lesson to address my bad hook misses. Didn’t feel like I was playing particularly great, but scored well (79), and zero hooks. Shots that I didn’t control the club face well were straight fades or slightly pushed fades, all playable. Driver wasn’t good today but only hit it on three holes.

Day 42 (5/16/21) - Did some slow motion full swing drills in the yard today (chipping a real ball) with the feeling of keeping my back to the target as long as possible. Plan to try this on the range tomorrow.

Played 18 holes of irons-only (hit one driver on 15) with Sculley. Really focused on some short game shots, too.

Day 130 (16 May 21) - went back to the Day 21 drill of last year’s 30 Day Covid-19 plan, i.e. low point drill.  Too many strokes lately that were fat, especially the irons.  Took a thin towel, 8i and foam golf balls worked on the downswing to get more consistent impact of ground after the ball.

    • Pretty poor showing by the world's number 1 - D Johnson. I also was not very fond of the announcers. I never thought I'd say it but I prefer Faldo to the 2 announcing the Palmetto through the past few days. And, please tell me again - what powers Top Tracer? 😣
    • Finally birdied the 2nd hole!  It's a 125yd par-3 that should have been my first birdie on the course.  Somehow, it took 25 tries... A couple of the other 'easy' holes are also like that for me.  Oh well. ...can't say anything good about the rest of my round though - doubled three in a row and it wasn't bad luck...    
    • I enjoyed the course. Really enjoyed the company. Did not play well. Did hit a handful of really good shots. Generally followed shortly thereafter by a horrible shot. It was a great time. 
    • I fired up some Darksiders 2. Built some serious Scythes with 75% critical chance and 80% critical damage and 65% health steal. Also made a secondary weapon with arm blades carrying a whopping 173% health steal. Fun to coast through The Crucible!
    • Yes the back nine was much better. Only two blind shots.
