Well, last weekend was the opener for my local Par 3 course.  I went out proudly with my newly fitted clubs, did my warm ups and tee'd up, from there well let the comedy begin.  Upgraded my Clubs from Ping eye 2's to much new Taylor-made burners, a Cobra F7 driver R15 fairway wood and a titlist 718 hybrid.  

First hole is a short 104 yards and I used to use my PW, Wiped it out dropped the ball and Sailed it 30 plus yards past the green, Ouch @#$%.  1 over par there.  2nd hole is 243 yards, pulled out the driver (I usually hit right at 240), Nope over again not as bad and got it in for par.  Next 4 holes were very much the same till I stared to dial things in,  after that it got better and all in all a great day out with my son in law who this was also his fist time out in 15 plus years.  Was great to be out walking and I hope the rest of the season is as exciting.  In retrospect I should have hit the driving range but just was to excited.  going out today sure it will be great.

    • 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.
