Did another SP workout practice session after today. My doctor approved CBD oil or cream for use although she said the oil brings mixed results where as the cream always works for arthritis pain. So I went cream.

 

Happy to report I’m pain free after the workout and way more balls than I originally intended because I felt good and wanted to hit some balls while tired. I’ve walked the last couple of times that I’ve played so I walked from the car to the back range - that’s 3 solid holes and then back in - plus I walked around between my last series of shots - I did 5 sequences of driver, 7 wood and 58 alternating that one between a flag at 76 and another at 62 - the 75 is a comfortable 58 for me - the 62 is trickier.

 

Prior to that I hit 15 drives, 15 7 irons, 15 wedges and 5 7 woods.

 

Feeling good -

It was 28* today, so I practiced with a bottle of Old Grand Dad Bonded. I think I got it to where it's repeatable.

You’re probably feeling good, too!

I had a game planned for Saturday and my playing partner was not able to make it. With Christmas coming up, he had family obligations to take care of. So the round was postponed and since I didn't feel like playing solo, I decided to hit the range today.

I'm still working on more consistency with my irons. I didn't find the center of the face as well as last week but I did tend to mis-hit consistently. Although I was a bit toward the heel.

One thing I will say about SGI clubs is that I was seeing good launch and a minimal loss of distance. I still need to work on alignment and try to become more accurate.

After the range session, it was back to the putting green working on greenside chips and putting from where they landed, trying to cut down on three putts. My best results are here:

I did hit one a little hot that ended up on the other side of the green. That was a three putt.

Heavy rains so I hit the range. Soent two hours on a large bucket working on mostly my 3w and 5w (forgot driver) off the tee as Ive been struggling a bit. 

Messed with stance width and ball position. Ive widened my stance substantially and I feel the outcome of that wasnt beneficial with the woods as they were with the irons. 

Narrowed myself  and taking more of a Greg Norman  stance. Very happy with the adjustment.

Learned 3 very important things today.

1. I respond much better to a dynamic warmup with the heavier, red SuperSpeed club.

2. CBD cream works - I forgot to apply it before hitting balls and my elbow flared up. It feels great now that I’ve applied the cream.

3. After playing around with driver, 2 different shafts, a variety of settings the one that my Ping long game fitter fit me for was clearly the best.

Had a literally 50-50 range session yesterday, evenly split b/w... "Whoa! That was good!" and "Whoa! WTF!!”

7i and down were firmly in the first category while all the longer clubs were the WTFs..... (..an interesting flip-flip from my last few on-course experiences).

But I credit the good stuff to recent lessons (at a Golftec; informal review to be posted soon) so I plan on practicing practicing practicing the scoring clubs (while expanding the lesson scope to the longer clubs).

And, yes - all the while continuing to work on the short game and on putting!

“We” went to a CBD “informative session” today run partially by our neighbor.
It was a slightly disguised MLM scheme bordering on Pyramid Scheme.
I’ll discuss with my real Doc Thursday.
Ridiculous pricing.

It's available everywhere here in Ohio. I'd be interested in what your doctor has to say about it..

Preparing for my ACT exam, so I’m practicing a s***load of math that I’m never going to actually use in the real world.

You don't know that.  Depends on what you want to do in life.  

I didn't have to take any tests to get into college, but I loved math.  I was a math major until my sophomore year, then changed to chemistry... still used math.  Throughout my career I used math in ways I couldn't have guessed at your age.  

Today I use it every day I play golf...  -1 for birdie, 0 for par, +1 for bogey, +2 for double.  Much easier to add up my score than all those 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 scores!  🤣

Good luck!!

Got is a very sold round of off the tee shots.  Yardage was solid; no real out of this world milage appeared, however.  I am getting a real feel for the G410+ and have not felt any urge to change any settings

Thank you Kenny! I appreciate the insight of someone with more extensive life experience, it helps me look at this in a different light. I don’t really have any idea what the next few years will bring, or any clear plans (yet) for my future. That should come into focus in the next few  years. I shouldn’t be looking at the things I’m learning today from a short-term perspective.

Don’t overlook anything in school. Math was not one of my favorites but I needed it everyday at work especially Trig.
You’ll be fine.

And when you (and I) were in school they told us we would not have a calculator with us everywhere went so we needed to learn how to do the math.  Guess what,  I  have a calculator with me every day 🙂 

@GB13depending on what you what to do from a profession standpoint you will probably need math skills.
