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.

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.

    • So yesterday I tried it. I played from 6280 yds. I haven't done this before. I usually play 5400 - 5700. So why? Because at the driving range some guy had a GC2 and got my driver carry at 214 yds. which with rollout should be around 230. But that's when I get into a groove. Usually I'll have to say it's around 200 carry because of mishitting the ball. But I had to try it. The course is rated 76.5/129. The front 9 was a dumpster fire. I'd locked myself out of my house and long story short, as a result I didn't get to the course but 2 minutes before my tee time. No warm up. No putting. Straight to the first hole and straight to the first duff. It took me 6 holes to warm up - I'm 68. I need to hit about 20 balls to loosen my back. Front 9 ended with a double bogey and a 58. Stopped for a hot dog and two Tylenol.  Back 9. I was determined to play better. I'd been going for pars on the front 9. I decided to play for bogeys. Stress-free back 9. I shot 45. One GIR. 18 putts. 4/6 Fwys. I left myself shots I liked - 40 to 70 yd. pitches with my 54 wedge. But this is playing for bogeys and not for pars. Some of the par 4s, I just couldn't reach in regulation. Well, I'd have to take the chance of a 7W landing and holding or not landing in a bunker so I just chose to lay up and hit a pitch that I knew I could get to about 9 feet from the hole. My 54 is my bread and butter. 9 straight bogeys.  So 103, but I don't even want to think about the front 9. Just the 45 on the back 9. I don't know if I'm going to do this again. I don't see breaking 90 from that length being possible. Highlights of the round  4th hole: Chipped in to save par. Always read the green when you chip.  12th hole: Lousy lie with the ball way above my feet on the fairway, choked down on a 7i and put it dead center of the fairway on the approach just short of the green. The shot was exactly as planned. The hole has "hell" to the left, two big bunkers in the front, and "more hell" if you go long.  16th hole: Holed out a 35 foot putt to save bogey. 
    • Yeah, but his eye wasn’t getting any better. Six over for the day and shooting two under the last eight holes. If he thought he had a shot and the eye wasn’t bad enough, he would probably have tried. I don’t think people can do the Tiger blaming on the WD.
    • At the point he WD he could not know he would miss the cut. Unfortunate but 6 over with plenty of holes left he could have made the cut. 
    • Thanks! That statement must have have been written by a PA or management company. What 20 something talks like that?     I suppose he was certain of missing the cut, so fair enough. 
    • You should have budgeted more for the hotel than the round of golf 🤣 Hopefully you got a good night's sleep:
