Day 381:

Did some A4 to A5 work again today most of the focus was leading my body into a good position so my weight is forward. Also trying to get in a good spot where my head stays steady as well.

Day 106

More putting practice this morning. Actually more green reading, using my full routine after I get to my ball. 

First I look at the putt from behind the ball just to get a basic read. Next, if I notice a low side, I walk to the back of the hole along the low side, and take a read. Hopefully I see something similar to what saw from the front side. On the way back to my ball, when even with the hole, or hopefully even with the low point, I look for a point above the hole. That point is where I am going to aim my ball, and hope for the best.

Alot of times if I don't see a noticeable break, I skip the above routine, and aim for the hole. I tend to hit fast putts 

Note, when on the course walking up to my ball that is on, or near the green, I am already looking for slopes before starting above routine.

Day 11 of 13:

Worked on Lag putts today. Completed the drill from LSW working on hitting three balls at a target distance. If I could get 2/3 balls within 10 percent of target distance I moved back to the next distance. 1/3 I would stay at that distance. 0/3 I would move up five feet to the next closest distance. I completed the entire drill every five feet from 25 feet back to 50 feet. I only had to move to a closer distance one, and the distances that gave me the most trouble were 35 and 45 feet. I completed the drill in roughly 20 minutes.

DAY 147    Bored being inside since it is a little chilly and WINDY today.   So spent time with my Impact Ball and shortened golf club to work on backswing and top of backswing.    Also did a lot of small projects so when tomorrow comes I will not have them to do so I can enjoy most of the day on the range and golf course.

Day 73 - April 16, 2018 - Pitching practice. Used a little less hand action. It's tough to pitch off mud, but that's what we've got these days, so I wanted to fine tune that a little bit.

Day 382:

More practice with my A4 to A5 drills, along with a couple impact drills Craig e-mailed me. One was trying to feel as if you were sweeping the turf with a broom to get the dust off the "floor". Through all of this "bi-polar" weather, that "Spring" has brought to Upstate NY, I remain perfect for 2018, and have continued my streak.

Will continue to swing a weighted club 20 times a day even when I play. To strengthen and stretch my muscles! 

Putting this evening!

Day 107 cool & breezy

Just a straight putting morning session. 

Stroked 25, 1 footers. 20, 2 footers. 15, 3 footers. Lastly 10, 4 footers.  Made 92% of them. My intent was to make all of them. 

After that, I stroked 10 more balls in the 30' +/-  range. Intent was to get the first putt close. Then, make the second one. The pin I was aiming for had a left to right break nearer to the hole. Most of the putts ran 10' +/-  past the hole.

Day 12 of 14: 

Driving Range today. 3 wood off the tee. Hit 20 balls (after my warm up) going through my routine and set up and tried to keep 80% of the balls within my shot zone. Started off REALLY well, but ended up getting 15 of 20 balls within my shot zone for a 75% "score". Had about 10 balls left so I hit partial wedge shots to a flag about 40 yards away. tried to land it in different spots. I am really enjoying my new pitching technique...I think its going to make these shots a lot of fun again.

DAY 148    Spent two hours plus on the range working on staying in posture and downswing sequence.   Then played 14 holes... the course was crowded so we skipped 12-15.  Still have a ways to go to bring the range to the course.... though I was only 4 over par for 14... missed 4-5 birdie putts short of the hole and on a good line.  Grrr....

Day 108 Perfect weather.

Nothing but 4+/- footers today, using only one ball. This meant after dropping the ball, I had to refocus on making the putt. Making the read, finding my aim point, taking my stance, alignment,  and then stroking the ball. Rammed in 43 of 50.

Day 383:

Worked on a couple impact drills with Craig today. Had my lesson today. My A4 to A5 position is good now we're just fine tuning, so the 160 yard 6-irons are now closer to 180 yards.

Day 62- range work today; hit through the bag, but spent 70%-ish of the time on 130-160yds with focus on steady head and centered turn. I've noticed the last few range trips have been significantly better...I think of this has to do wit me being intentional about slowing down my tempo.

    • Bryson DeChambeau hits a drive even he hasn’t hit before  
    • I got a new net and mat so I can do some testing with the Mevo this off-season. I want to have a much more accurate understanding of my carry distances. I will hopefully do some work with the driver as well. I will also be able to continue some Evolvr lessons into the spring, and then just do monthly checks throughout the summer with my instructor to make sure I am not regressing with any of the priorities. Second part of the Mevo work is to figure out which 3 of these clubs will make the bag. I plan to also keep a standard 4 iron and will get some numbers on that. I only have 2 wedges after my PW so I have room for three clubs. I’d rather have the versatility up at the top end of the clubs anyway. I’ll try to get some numbers and post them here to make the decision on which 3 clubs I will be keeping in the bag. Lofts are 20, 19, 18 and 15.5.
    • In the US the threat is about 69 deaths per 100,000 population (Johns Hopkins University). Pretty small but expect it would increase some if we just unlocked everything.  I am not in favor of lockdowns, they do more damage than the virus would do.  I am in favor of reasonable (problem is who defines reasonable) restrictions on some activities.  In the specific case of golf, I mentioned what is being done in this area in my first post.  Seems like these are reasonable and not much of an effort for the courses to do. 
    • Employees must not be too happy about the move. Unlike Orlando, golf in Connecticut is extremely poor to non-existent December through March. Hope they bring their indoor golf simulators with them.😉
    • I just use my iPhone. There are adapters for tripods. Others just mount their phone or camera on their bag. Bag height is good because it’s hand height. In a practice session, I will set up either face on or down the line and check camera angles. DTL I will lay a club along my toe line and aim the camera there. Then I film that side. I will do driver and 6 or 7 iron and maybe wedges. Then switch to the other view and repeat. It takes a little practice, but once you’ve done it a few times, it’s easy. Try not to fuss about getting a perfect swing. Ones that feel good or bad actually look pretty similar. You want your Evolvr instructor to see what you have. I will set up, but not film until I’m warm and ready to film the drill or swing. Lastly, trim the video down. I post it to YouTube and just put the link in Evolvr. You don’t have to worry about file size that way. I post as unlisted and full HD.
