Day 23 (30 Dec 21) - Played 18 today (last round of the year).  Focus was on the grip and keeping it strong.  More predictable ball flight for sure and better overall accuracy. Great day of on course work!

Day 9: 

Okay, so yesterday I did a bunch of mirror work and then tried to translate that to hitting balls. I filmed a couple of my swings (the first, the last, on in the middle). I want to look at them before my next mirror work session. So, I'll have time to do that later. 

So far this morning I did 10-15 minutes of putting. Which was mostly bead work. I did the old string drill on six footers. Then I did the gate drill. Each of these with a dozen balls.

Day 24 (31 Dec 21) - got in the yard for a few moments, worked on some pitches with the SW, my go to club around the green.  Focus today was on gripping down vs my grip position to get the bounce working best.

30 day Covid-19 practice plan day 25 (proper sequencing)

Day 431: Drizzle let up enough for me to get some work in with 6 iron, driver and PW. Worked on my priority pieces with 70-80% swings.

Day 69 (12/31/21) - Played 5 holes at North Kingstown today.  With all of the rain we've had this week, the course was soaked and given the heavy air, the ball didn't go anyplace, not to mention my really poor swings for the first few holes. Had a great time however. Also made use of an empty hole to practice 50 yard wedge shots, first with my 53* SW then with my 49* UW. 

I also got to try out my new Shot Scope V3. 

Happy New Year everyone!

Day 10: 

Okay, so yesterday I did a lot of mirror work. Trying staying in super-slow motion. I've already done a little more of that today. I plan to do even more. 

I also already worked on some putting today.
Since the old string drill was still set up for six footers, I spent 10 minutes on that. I always like to do the gate drill after the string drill, so I spent a few more minutes on that as well.

The other thing I plan to do today is put a grip on an old wedge I found in my closet. I'm going to stick that in my office with some dimes and foam balls. I'll do chipping drills during breaks in conference calls. 

2022 = Get Better.

Day 62, January 1, 2022

You can't practice every day of the year if you don't practice the first day of the year. 🙂

Spent an hour before juniors this morning and then about ten minutes afterward. Same stuff.

    • Right. But they are televising it in the morning.  I don’t know why they do that? I suspect it’s the PGA. Anyway, who are you watching/rooting for?
    • I started to post this in the US Amateur thread, but don't want to derail that discussion with LIV....but I was absolutely shocked to see David Puig in there after competing in multiple LIV events.  Turns out, he has not accepted any prize money or contract money from LIV in order to keep his amateur status. Makes for an interesting case, since by playing in those tournaments, he forfeit his chance to join Korn Ferry or another PGA Tour Umbrella tour through NCAA standings.  But he's not accepting money from LIV, presumably to return to school for his senior year, so he doesn't have income or a long term future with LIV either.

    • I'm aware of the issue that site awards (https://thesandtrap.com/awards/) are not appearing as they should in your "postbit" or beneath your signatures. I've alerted the developer of the plugin/application and he is (hopefully) working toward a fix.
