My golf handicap on GHIN is still 26.7. I had a lot of work to do due to a large product launch for work and I also got sick so this lowered a lot of my golf time so here’s a summary of my 3 weeks.
Training with Dongki
September 15-16: Practiced with Dongki at the gym with various jumps and using a device to practice swings. Also, did a lot of throwing of a large ball and practice swings with a PVC pipe.
September 23: Went to Badlands and did hole 1 and hole 2 repeatedly to practice different clubs and swings. Then I went to the pitching greens to practice different distances.
Butch Harmon School
September 17: Practiced having a left fit turned slightly to the left and keeping legs shoulder distance instead of so wide and with a slight raise of left shoulder so that there is a slight angle instead of even with the ground at all dress. This helped me to improve my strike for aim.
September 24: Did training with Dongki and Vic and used a giant metal swing to focus on the arc of my swing. I also learned to change my swing path so that is went out more and it leads to more power and a higher likelihood of a hook instead of slicing.
September 18: Amber and I met up with Christina, Ben, and Paul and we played a round of golf of 9 holes, but we didn’t keep score. It was just fun play. I was also very out of practice and not shooting well. We were at Cinnabar Golf Course and it was very beautiful.
September 22: Played 9 holes in Venice at the Penmar Golf Course. It was kinda hot and I hit a lot of trees. I also used a walking cart for the first time. I got matched up with a couple of others and it was fun. On the other hand, I was very rusty due to lack of regular play due to not wanting to play in the extremely hot desert summer heat in Vegas or waking up in the super early hours. I shot a 53 at Penmar and hit a lot of trees.
Random stat: On another note, if I take all the hours/days since I’ve created this blog, I’m averaging about 2 hours per day. So if I am to hit mastery within a decade and do at least 1,000 hours/year, then I should keep to my plan of averaging about 3 hours/day instead. This can be accomplished by playing at least 4 hours/day during 5 days out of 7 days in each week. I was ahead of the curve due to excessive early playing, but that led to injuries in my hands; however, injury was also likely due to holding the clubs too tightly with an improper grip and too small of grips as well. This has been corrected. With the weather improving, I should get back on track to ensure I continue down the path of mastery at the correct rate.
