Day Three - I didn't pick up a club, but I read several chapters of Lowest Score Wins... a lot of it seems over my head because of my level of golf and because I can't relate to the numbers (no average women's stats or even LPGA), but I can surely use the concepts to help create my own plan for improvement.

They're the same concepts. The LPGA has some pretty bad stats keeping, too, so I apologize but there's not a lot out there that's "good" to use.

But the same concepts apply - hit the greens, putting is the skill you're closest to an LPGA Tour player at, distance matters, etc.

25 reps. Stretching hamstrings. Working on slow movements through transition. Tai Chi slow with weight shift incorporated into movement.

Range work went pretty well yesterday afternoon. Used Mevo and other than the carry distances being all over the map possibly due to really bad ball striking. More or less the same kind of strikes I did on my 80 par 70 round yesterday (http://www.gamegolf.com/player/lihu/round/1985690) Used A Pro-V1 circa 2014. 

Turns out the Tai Chi swings I do in the morning get decent distances, but my lack of focus when I relax too much really cause me to strike pretty poorly.

Also noticed that to hit my maximum distances I really need to be on top of everything. Going to work on a little pre shot routine again instead of just swing-swing-hit.

Note that these are Srixon range balls 1pc range balls with approximately 6% reduction in initial velocity due to compression and other effects done by Srixon.

19/1/18 - Takeaway and knee flex work with the mirror, then trying to start feeling like the hands come straight down rather than out in transition.

Day 19

Driving range today. 80+/-  balls. Worked with all clubs, 90% full swings. Took about 2.5 hours. I had nothing else to do that was pressing. 

Focused on address position, alignment, ball in stance, and posture. Used the range flags as landing areas to check on my accuracy. Was especially pleased with my driver swing. 

Turf was a bit on the wet side, which I attribute to the dozen or so fatties I hit. The rest were playable.

Day 294.

Continued work with my path drill with the soda bottles today. Today was 10 minutes of the wedge version of this drill. I used my 54° for 9 to 3 swings, with the focus of not hitting the bottles. It took a few swings to not hitting the outside bottle, but I was literally just nicking it. So seven or eight solid minutes of nice swings.

Thanks, I will apply the concepts and improve my game!  It's just discouraging to hear you guys talk about your drive distances when mine is about 160-170.  :-(

Day Four - before we played today, I tried the six-footer challenge.  I didn't film it, and didn't succeed... I'll work on it again and at least provide the stats.

Day 19

Ten minutes putting doing the steel ruler drill. First time to try this;I found it very effective.

i got to hit the Callaway Rogue today. I was swinging poorly and could not find the middle of the club face.On the monitor however, I was getting near my usual distance. Hitting it hooky though. I plan to go back and try  warming up with my own driver. I like the look and it feels light.. The Epic never really cranked my tractor but the Rogue just might

20/1/18 - Got another evolvr response from Preston, just clarifying a few things with the knee flex work and getting me to create more width in the takeaway. Spent 20 minutes on mirror work this evening after a short attempt at the range trying to work on it earlier - just too cold for much longer! Also did a bit of work on the putting on the mat in the basement as well

I did my path drill with the soda bottles today. I went back to a longer club (a 6-iron) and did the draw path drill. (I have balls I can hit indoors, don't worry). Just to make sure that feeling is ingrained. Then again feel ain't real. So I guess it was more to make sure the motions are still there. 

295 days in a row. 70 to a year.

Day 20

Played 9 holes today. A little 2800 yard course. Worked on whatever the the shot/putt required in wet conditions. More mental, adjustment stuff than physical swing stuff. 

More metal woods than irons to get to the green to avoid fat shots, due to wer turf.  

I was able to work on  my AW flop shot. With the wet greens, I used it to hit flop shots that dropped and stop near the pin. . 

Once on the green, I needed to focus on getting extra speed on the ball due to moist, slower  greens than I am use to.  Going to play 9 more as soon as this latest drizzle passes over.

1/20 - hey guys! It's been a couple of months since I've held a club, but the weather was awesome today so I went to the range. Hit great! It was a challenge with all my swig thoughts (centered turn, low point control, forward weight shift, etc). Hopefully the temperatures will start heading in right directions soon. 

I look forward to re-starting the daily challenge next month.

    • My kids - all four of them - shag my foam golf balls when we go for walks.  I take a nine iron and rip shots that they field like outfielders.  Drew, my athlete and most avid golfer, has a running total of 49 catches.  Caitlin has caught about five.  Will tracks them pretty well, but he hasn't caught one yet.  Emma just watches.
    • The Gentlemen My wife really loved this movie, but it was a bit slow compared to other Guy Ritchie films.  The "gang" activity seemed kind of forced.  Scramble for par.
    • I've used the M3 but prefer the R7, I think it's primarily because of the difference in shaft and lie loft angles. Has anyone tried to match the difference of your preferred driver to the latter model based on the fact it should be better. I have the R7 set with all the weights in the fade position and it's 8.5deg, my M3 standard 9.5deg which means if I set it to 8.5deg I open the face? It would also mean that the shaft will play a little differently as I've altered the spine and flo therefore would you say I need to remove and reset the grip and adapter? If you tried this with your new and improved driver head did you find it successful, plz advise so I can decide if it's worth pursuing?
