    Made it to the range last evening after work, for a beautiful sunny afternoon therapy session. I worked on my separation in the back swing with half speed pitching wedge. It felt really good, worked up to about 3/4 speed, and was really hitting it on line. Even got the 7 and 5 iron out to work on half speed swings to really test it. Not as good, but the 5 iron exposed some of my flaws. So I went back to PW, but I went down a rabbit hole and kinda fell apart. I got back to a good stopping point at the end. I’m not trying to rush these changes, but more of a gradual process in hopes that a month or two months when everything really picks up I’m better.

    It’s been pretty wet here, so I’ve mainly been working on little things at home. I did get out to the range this week, and I am trying to work on some better connection and sequencing in my swing. I figure these two things I can work on slow while it’s cold and the course is wet. In terms of working on connection, I am using the connection sphere with the ProSendr. It has been very useful. The transition part has not been as fun. I am really feeling my upper and lower body resist in the takeaway, and then feeling a pause at the top. That pause at the top is a killer, but I am seeing some good things on the course.

    Here is my Ball fitting Numbers at Golf Galaxy on Trackman. This is for my 7 iron... 

     
    Here is the numbers on a 40 yard pitch with my 60* wedge. 

    I had a really bad swing day, but two balls really stood out above the rest for me and my fitter. The Maxfli and the Srixon, both of them had some good shots that the other balls just could not keep up. This was an amazing experience, and I really did learn alot from this fitting.

    I played this afternoon/evening, had to rush to beat the sundown. I did not start great, had a horrible range session I even broke an alignment stick working on my plane. My swing felt horrible, and I really wasn’t looking forward to playing the round. I ended up shooting my best round since September! I started with 3 straight bogeys, when my swing started to click. I finished the round with no birdies and no doubles. I guess I need to start working on my swing plane more.

    So I’m sure not a coincidence, but after putting Maxfli back in play, I have back to back rounds of sub80 rounds! I have been working on my swing, but I am loving how high and far it flies.

    Had a really good practice session/ 9 hole practice. It was cold and very windy, so I figured it was a good day to break out the Prosendr. I started with half swings with my PW. I shanked the first 5, but then I really focused on the feeling and started hitting some good ones. It really helped me shallow out my swing, I have never had so thin of a divot line. When I played 9 my irons were phenomenal, I hardly took a divot and my flight was really straight. Some highlight swings was a 4 iron into wind that carried 205 playing 220, and two 6 irons I flew over the green on par 3s. I was easy swinging, and I hit iron shots that are flying farther than what I play in normal conditions. I was consistently getting better compression. After 9 I went into the clubhouse to warm up, but then I went to the range and hit another bucket of half swings working on getting that feeling from the Prosendr. I was really impressed with how good it was at getting that feeling of holding the lag in the downswing, then all I had to do is rotate.

    Got off work early yesterday for Thanksgiving, so I went to the range and got to enjoy an amazing fall afternoon. I didn’t have to rush to beat the sun going down, so I really focused on keeping my club head outside hands in my takeaway. I started slow with my PW and just did a rehearsal then a half swing, and just slowly worked it into 3/4 swing. Then the same with my 8 iron. After half a large bucket I started doing full swing 8, and I was really loving my ball flight. Naturally, I got greedy and jumped into 4 iron and driver. Needless to say these did not go as well, but I was not missing any left. I was push cutting them way right, but this is definitely working in the direction I want to go. In time I think I will get back to power fades. I then ended with 20 balls going back into half swings with my PW to get that same feeling.

    Yeah I was gonna try the Tour for winter. I’m very lucky that I can play for most of the year. I wanted a softer ball for those cold mornings, but I love the X. It flies high and very long, and I can’t give that up. I’ll just try to not hit any thin. I’ll let ya know how I like the yellows, they will come in handy racing the twilight hours. 
     
    I agree, for a urethane “Tour” quality ball $30/25 a dozen ball is almost double what you would pay for a dozen of the top brands.

    That's awesome @cjeffs12! You'll have to let me know what you think of them. 
    I told a couple of guys at work about the deal and I don't think they jumped on the deal. One of them picked up some of the X back in the early summer and looked them.
    I don't think you can beat these for the price, especially since they're a urethane ball.
