Day 51, July 15, 2021:

Practiced chipping today for about ten minutes or so, though my 14 week old kitten Bootsie, was doing her best Andrei Vasileskiy (sp) impression, while I was practicing it.

Day 101 (7/16/21) - 9-hole league tonight. I shot a 46 which was OK, but could/should have been 3-4 strokes better if I had not hacked up 2 of the easier holes on the course. Chipping was definitely off tonight and I only hit two fairways (of 6).

Day 20 (16 Jul 21) - easy swings on the beach today with the “navigate the sand”walking club (an old Spalding 9i) that helps me stay stable while walking the sand.  Have homework for tomorrow- wife did a “live” photo of me with the driver yesterday (unbeknownst to me) and I saw my nemesis in action - failure to fully rotate in the downswing and the chicken wing left arm as I came thru to finish….

Day 21 (17 Jul 21) - wound up at the local putt-putt course while at the beach.  A fun place to think about “the dough” part of the game.  Really like thinking about what I am “seeing” on the greens…does it break left or right, the tiers, pace of ball to hole, etc.  Good round of fun of no pressure putting

Day 102 (7/17/21) - A. s noted in yesterday's entry, my chipping was off last night. Something was missing during warmup, so today I did around 30-minutes with the Orange Whip wedge, focusing on a smooth chipping motion and distance control.

Day 143.  I redid day 3's quarantine drill aiming to be more engaged (I'm not sure this is the right description;  see that thread).  I then did some parts of day 4 again, as today was going to be day 5.  And it was;  so far, this is my favorite of the drills (so fitting to find something I love as part of a "day 143"), and I can easily see this one becoming part of my regular practice.  It feels different from how I hit balls normally at impact, so I am guessing that this would improve me.  On the other hand, I can't quite get to A4 without going A1-A3 first, so the drill took me a bit longer than planned, which is not a problem.  Videos are processing, will upload later tonight or tomorrow morning.

Day 103 (7/18/21) -  About 20 minutes in the yard (i) chipping motion with my 58* wedge and a real ball trying to duplicate the feeling of the Orange Whip wedge from yesterday and (ii) 9 to 5 shots with the same wedge and a whiffle ball to work on full swing motion.

Hit 288 balls into net at home. Practiced lobbing balls over large wisteria bush with 58-10 SM7 until I hit 24 in a row with no laying the sod over them or smacking them in the forehead.

    • A better way to say it would be using the leg to push the hip, here's a video of what I mean he's referring to the downswing but am I right in saying for the backswing should you do something similar, where you use your leg to push the hip rather than just trying to get the hip to turn clockwise   
    • 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.
