  1. To survive another year of winter depression...
  2. I like your turn on the backswing. A definite improvement.
  3. Did you ever get on one of those rants where you are rolling along and then you look up and you realize you're all of sudden arguing things that don't even make sense? I've been there. Happened to me last night having a argument discussion with my wife. I got so dug in I looked up and realized I was arguing for shit I didn't even care about an not even making sense at that. I've always been a Gary Player fan, but I think he got off the rails here.
  4. I really want to figure out a way to efficiently move every speck of snow from my yard and move it to the neighbor's yard.
  5. Had a very encouraging range session today. Saw lots of progress with getting my swing on plane. It's not where I want it yet but it's light years from where I started. Some negatives I saw is that my knees are still too flexed. It's proving tougher than I thought to fix that. I'm also standing up a bit through impact.
  6. Yea, I think I had like 26-28 putts.
  7. In what world is his average clubhead speed 139 and his average ball speed 203?
  8. Winter time out here in the desert is great practice weather. Never too hot, and never too cold....most of the time. I will continue to practice various shots when ever possible. By that I mean shots I encounter when playing. A lot of my practice time will be devoted to 100 yards, and closer to greens. Probably 80%-90%, which would also include putting. Part of my putting, and chipping practice would also involve green reading. I won't neglect my tee, and fairway game, but those two aspects of my game are as good as they are going to get. Just no need to spend much practice time on them. In my golf reality, a lot of my practice time, in addition to various shots/conditions, is mainly geared to just staying in golf playing shape. For me,doing battle with "father time" is fun. It's a losing battle, but being able to slow it down a little is a significant win for me.
  9. So, hit some balls after the gym keeping on with the drill. Not sure if I'm coming too inside on the backswing and I also feel like I'm going to have to get more reps in with my right arm not as flexed as I think I revert back to bending my elbow too much. I think the A5 drill is good except I pump too much and that may lead to my finish being too high. Also filmed it in slow-mo because I didn't know which is better for analysis purposes.
  10. Day 269 - Sept 22, 2020 Putted while watching the Payne's Valley match. Also… All good.
  11. Hey guys I can now join the hole in one club. I'm 69 yrs old usually play from senior tees. Yesterday played with 6 of us from the white for a little $ game. I holed out on a par 3, 127 yards with a 8. Pretty exciting.😉
  12. Embarrassing. Whenever I've heard a colleague or any other individual talk about their brand, it makes me want to feed their face to baboons. The world doesn't need individual people to be brands. It needs more human beings. Brands are for Coke and Disney. A brand is an image. It's not a person. Just the worst f***ing people in the world talk about their personal "brand." THE WORST

    • Day 320 Superspeed workout, then some mirror work on takeaway/backswing, and finally hit some balls with 7-iron. Hit the ball well today. Still searching for a good feel/thought to take on course for backswing piece. Current one is okay, but I think I can come up with something better. 
    • Update - I sent an email to Arccos support about my Caddie Link order, again, and received this prompt reply (in part): "... We did begin fulfilling pre-orders at the end of September and then the first week of October our manufacturer informed us that due to COVID they are unable to acquire the needed materials to complete further devices for the next couple of weeks so shipments have halted for the time being. Shipments of the devices will commence the first week of November. We greatly apologize for this delay and issue and once they send yours out we will be sure to send you tracking and status updates."  
    • Hi all, I was fit into both the Mizuno JPX 921 SEL irons (which is a combo set of 6-GW Mizuno JPX 921 tours and then 4-5 JPX 921 Forged) and the Taylormade P770 irons.  I hit both pretty well, and thought the Mizunos had a slightly better feel but the Taylormades went slightly further.  Both had good spin rates and descent angles, although the Miznuo was slightly better on those factors for me.  I feel pretty torn between the two, I like them both a lot looks wise.  My fitter said it was a really close and tough call but that at the end of the day he would probably suggest the Mizunos for me because they're cheaper to get customer shafts and grips with, the lie can be bent more, the higher center of gravity helps a small amount with my miss (a hook), and they will last me longer as I continue bringing my handicap down.  On the other hand, the P770s are a touch more forgiving and go a little further, so it's a tough call for me. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts between the two or advice or perhaps would just like to share which they would pick in my shoes. Thank you.
    • No clue. Here is some images of the drawers.
