Day 63 (6/06/21) - I fell asleep last night without adding this practice....worked on half swings with a noodle set at about 45* with the goal of getting rid of my over the top move.

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 234: played the first steamy round of the year with a friend. I sweat buckets and had to wear rain gloves. Played ok, but was a bit off. Shot an 84 from the Blue tees (longest on the course).
 

I did see a doe and her fawn, two Mockingbirds harassing a Red Tail Hawk, and saved a painted turtle from almost certain death by lawnmower. Little guy did not appreciate it.

Day 537:

One of those days where I felt completely unmotivated to do anything - physically and mentally exhausted. Finally scraped myself off the couch and did some indoor bead putting practice, and some backswing work with LVP camera.

Day 104.  Wind down after work, 30 minutes in the golf practice room.  Setup, slow backswing, stop at the right spot, reset, after three good backswings, take a fourth and swing forward.  Again, the whole thing is slow.

Day 1 (8 Jun 21) - streak broken (missed more than 2 days of posts in the last 28) so starting over....pitches with the 54* from varied distances and lies with the goal to get the ball to land and check quickly.  Distances were from 5yds up to 30 (about max in my yard).

Day 65 (6/08/21) - Went to the range today:

  • Warmed up with some chips on the putting green and partial wedge shots on the range,
  • Hit 20 balls with a 8-iron, mostly partial swings, with a noodle set at 45* to discourage/prevent/re-educate my over the top move,
  • Hit 12 Drivers full swing trying to maintain the feeling from the noodle drill, and
  • Finished with a few shots from the practice bunker. 

Good practice session overall...short and focused.

Day Fourteen, June 8, 2021

Hit some shots with a slower feeling arm swing... that actually went farther... What the hell, I hit 60°, 54°, AW, 8i, 6i, 4i.... oh and I worked on my posture and widening my swing radius.

Day 528 - June 8, 2021

Practiced downtown for 15-20 minutes before a lesson. Really felt some good flow with a much "less" arm action.

Day 538:

Did some swing mapping for downswing with LVP camera, and then hit some balls outside. Think I might have found a good feel for clubface control during downswing.

Day 105.  I didn't get the same length of wind-down as I got yesterday, but after work today I did get ten minutes of slow 7-iron swings, with the aim of slow to the top, making the top at a better place than it was a week ago, do that a few times and then hit the ball also on a slow swing, as if I were trying to send it 75 yards on a full 7-iron.  Swings are slow, I don't think I'm getting it as slow as 75 yards though.

Day 2 (9 Jun 21) - Pitch drills today using the PW.  Was initially sloppy in the ball striking, "felt" completely out of sync.  Consistently thinned a good number of the shots, so I stepped back, slowed down and decreased the swing to about 1/2 swing to work on mechanics.  By the end of the drill ball was much better coming off the club.  While not a great day, it was a good day.

Day 529 - June 9, 2021

Do I get to count practicing my grip for 15 minutes while trying to figure out just WITF @woodzie264 was doing?

Okay, I played a few holes with Nat this morning.

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
