Hard to think of a cheaper training aid than some foot spray... Worth every penny

Finally got to do some “chipping” after what seems forever. Was pleased with results after 4+ months. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

Went out and played Exec 9 last night, first 9 holes in almost 6 months since my shoulder surgery! Played from forward or white tees, nothing stronger than an 8i and 3/4 swing. SWMBO drove the cart t

Went out to the course yesterday afternoon before the league started.  I found a 4-hole gap on the course, and hit fairway bunker shots.  This is the weakest part of my game.  I'd like to say that I am never in one because I hit the ball straight, but I can't say it.  

 

Until last year my bunker game around the green was terrible, but I have now had plenty of practice that I can at least get out.  However, that hasn't translated to fairway bunker shots.  After a half hour I managed to get most balls out of the bunker.  I need more practice.

If anyone has ever felt like they lost their swing overnight and then struggled for an hour on the range to find out what was wrong and then decided to stop practicing bad habits (whatever it is)... that's me today.

Once or twice a season. Just feels like your holding a foreign object.

Those bad things come and go. I literally was scared to hit the ball for a while. Then bingo, it all came back, but better.

Stay positive. Your sport could be curling or water polo.

I like to listen to music while I practice and I'll break up my practice based on songs (keeps it from getting too robotic and repetitive that way).  Last night I spent one song working on some non-club drills, two songs taking half swings trying to get into the right impact position, two songs just taking full swings only thinking about the target (as I would on the course).  Then one final song doing some putting.  I'll typically follow the same routing but work on different aspects of the swing in the first few songs.

Had the opposite happen to me this weekend before a round. Swing was spot on at the range, then no where to be seen on the course! Usually, I don't have a problem bringing the range game to the course but this was just something I normally don't experience. Ah well. Yesterday all was right again.

Went to the range this morning to figure out what the hell was going on with this snap hook.  Turned out to be a rather quick fix as it was just a pure lack of lower body in the swing - I wasn't clearing my front hip and getting my weight off of my back foot.

 

Focused on getting my belt buckle to the target and it really helped me sync my upper and lower body to eliminate the lefts!

Went to the range just to gut check my swing after playing on a member guest all last week and having a bad last day.

 

Realized it's clubhead position at impact; think I got too quick and too lazy with it but now it's good.

 

Also, my wedges got beat up hitting off hardpan desert all week, so started looking for replacements, but realized I liked the PM grind too much so will just buy replacements.

Putts & wedges, the Project (a) was rolling out a little more then the TP5.

A little different than what I was seeing so far this year.

I used those projects for half a season. Got super high spin with driver and not much with wedges. Bought a bucket load of the RBZ Urethanes used and they are much better. Golf balls direct has them for $5 a dozen, AAAA.

I was able to get out on the grass yesterday and I did 2 buckets and was tinkering with my loft settings on my driver. I've been using 10.5U on my Mizuno JPX EZ for over a year now. I read that slower swing speeds need higher loft. Mixed results. So I'm switching back to normal for my weekly match with my buddy!

 

Plus I did get 1/2 bucket with Woody (3W) and is nice and dialed in!

I'm on a two week break. After a frustrating 2 man scramble last weekend I'm taking a very brief hiatus. If it wasn't for a work golf tournament next week it would be about a 3 week break

Next week I will be going through a short game analysis from a local pro.  100 shots from 100 yards and in.  Everything from full wedge shots, bunker shots, to lag putts.  I will be graded so I will learn the areas that are my strengths and the areas I need to work on.
