What/How did you practice today?

Jumbo bucket today charting shot patterns. Got to driver and it was a mess. Needed to do some nail drill and that helped a little. Then some chipping practice with open and closed faces to adjust trajectory. Finally some putting working on distance control.

Got to the range at lunch again and did some full-swing drills. I can’t wait until my lesson Tuesday!!!! Sheesh.

No I have been doing some of the drills at home without hitting balls but at the range today I started with some short pitches with the 50 and worked my way up to full swings. Then moved to 8 iron and then 6 iron. Really enjoyed the simplicity and ease of use.

Had a lesson yesterday and made a few significant changes including weakening my grip and getting my club path more out-to-in. All of my practice over the winter got me coming very in-to-out and was causing a lot of hooks.

The other major feel change for me was with my backswing and having my arms and shoulders start the swing and not using the hips until my arms and shoulders can't turn anymore. This was in contrast to me trying to turn my hips early.

Basically, I over corrected a lot of things and the lesson got me back on the right track. Hit a small bucket after work yesterday and saw some promise, struck the ball well during my round this morning and then was able to get a bucket of practice in despite the misting rain at lunchtime and really started to see some good progress.

Hopefully I keep moving in the right direction!

Just finished up week 5 of SuperSpeed, not my best day but also not my worst. Had to pick up my wife's new lease car, pick up dinner, and clean the coils on the fridge before doing it so I was a bit tired. I hit a high of 117 with my lightest stick, which is only 3 mph from my best swing ever. Here in a couple more weeks I'll get out and see what gains I've made. I learned the last go round it might be a little while before the jump, so I'm not in a rush.

Planning on a range day tomorrow and a game Sunday for the Grint challenge.

Finished my testing at MGS this week and they out me to work.  Double sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday, another session on Thursday then finished my week on Friday with a jumbo bucket of 5 irons.  At least it gave me motivation to actually hit some golf balls.

Had a range session today but got distracted in the clubhouse and tested a club as well. Can someone tell me which one was the players club? Side note, despite lie being 5* flat from what I play, and the shaft being dgs300 this iron was just as money. I think I have a problem. C3DB8A39-5BB2-42CA-BF8D-0B145EF5AAB6.jpeg.159b6f38e6f0f294fbf387fe495c01b8.jpeg

At the home net I have been struggling a bit with poor iron contact. I ended up watching a video from Mark Crossfield about iron play which most of the time are just for fun but this time I thought why not. One that resonated was turning your weight to your front toes. This helped some swaying I was doing and did clean up the contact. Now to see if it works tomorrow at the course.

Hard to tell from that angle,  but the length of the one on the left seems a little smaller.  Many GI clubs do a great job of hitting the additional bulkiness.    We know you have a problem;  many people here have the same problem  🙂

Ding ding. Club on the left is the Z765 6i. Granted I was not on a monitor but the balls from that vs my pxg 6i were similar. Mishits definitely were felt more. First time I hit it I said to myself “ man that was nice”.

765s are great clubs and I have a set in my backup bag.  I have hit the Gen 4 0211s and the 765s are equal to or maybe a bit shorter.  The 0211s are a lot more forgiving than the Srixon (including the ZX5).  I honestly didn't like the ZX5s when I hit them;  my miss is toe and I think they are more penal on toe strikes with this version that the prior models.

Went out to the range today as it's a beautiful 70+ degree day and hit two buckets of balls. First bucket went ok, but still felt like I had some things I needed to work on. Most notably, the shanks came to visit on my 50 yard shots. 

I brought out the Divot Board and hit some good shots.20210501_131325-01.jpeg.be9387c5b9866c0843d769f123f80bf5.jpeg

And some bad shots. 

20210501_131415-01.jpeg.b5d7707d9df32c19ff0392dbe4f5fb4f.jpeg20210501_131515-01.jpeg.707bb94969fc726809572742141c06e0.jpeg

I set up a gate drill for my irons trying to get contact closer to the center and was still hitting just slightly toward the heel, but better. Figured out my tempo was way too slow, I sped it up and was getting on my lead side on the follow through. 

What helped me figure that out was my driver swing. I started out hitting it decently, just a bit high and toward the heel. 20210501_135134-01-01.jpeg.cbd33c511ba490cb8fe29e265f1a05a0.jpeg

I then teed it up with a 2 3/4 inch tee, and something strange happened. 20210501_135650-01.jpeg.91d8afdc325620299c9c0bb5facc331f.jpeg

I don't know what sort of sorcery this is, it's uncharted territory. 

Came off the range feeling pretty good about my game, now I've just got to play. Called one course in the area and they can't take me off as a single until 4 tomorrow, the other course is packed all day. I wanted to get 18 in for the Grint tournament, but I don't think that'll happen.

More divot board work. Working on NTC and Justin Rose feels. Swing felt very fast! Hopefully that carries over and I still have consistency. High hands feel strange but good at same time. Brought same feel out with the driver along with the planemate. Working on weight shift since with my driver I tend to get stuck on my back foot. Hoping to get a nice rhythm for my Saturday fitting. 
 

yesterday also did some short game work at our facility working on short pitches and shots over a bunker and focusing on landing area. As @Kenny Bcan attest, I need a lot of work there as that cost me at least 5 stroke or more on thursdays 9.
