No playing today :( but I got out for an hour of chipping and pitching practice. I noticed the bunker was in great shape so I jumped in to work on those longer shots say 20 yards maybe even 30. I was using the little valley as my landing zone and got 8 of the first 10 shots out. When I back up to the longer distance I kept coming up short till I figured out if I choke down a bit I don't take so much sand and the ball came right out!

Talked a local teaching pro to get my daughter into a 4 week clinic & potentially I to lessons after that. The giddy side of me got a little excited today!!!

I had a lesson today. We worked on shortening my backswing with my irons, which really helped both my contact and swing path. When I tried the same thing with my driver it was a different story. We tweaked a few other things, but that’s going to have to be the subject of my next lesson.

Completed the Golf Canada Handicap Certification seminar.

Next up is the exam once Golf Canada allows membership renewals.

Driving range today swinging my D-7W probably 60-70 range balls, while aiming my ball flights between two range pole yardage markers. Maybe a 30 yard wide diy fairway. Did ok I guess.

A young lady set up next to me accompanied with her swing instructor. I was hearing bits, and pieces of his instruction. Sounded like he knew his stuff. At one point he tells the Lady to "swing like this guy". I look up, and he's referring to me.

I laugh a little, saying "you don't want to swing like me". He goes on to say "no, you I have decent swing". So I showed the Lady my driver swing.....twice. Actually hit the ball pretty well both times, I did.

After that, I meandered over to the putting green. Stroke a few balls. As usual the holes weren't cut large enough.

After the putting green, I went to the short game area, and hit some 100 yard PW shots. This was a pleasent surprise, since I don't usually hit my PW that far. Dispersion was a little off, but not too bad.

Just a good day of practice.

Sounds like a great day at the range!

Rolled some putts at the house. Made less with my gamer than the tank cruiser and my trusty nike method mod. I think I'm gaming the tank this weekend first time in YEARS.

THP, some body repair, organized some course data, watched the Sentry and got super jealous, and am trying to decide what clubs to play tomorrow in the freezing cold.

That sounds kind of nice. Peaceful, or eerie?
Peaceful.. There was one guy finishing up when I started hitting. I hit decently well and the swing is progressing. I finished and realized I was still the only one hitting and they started closing up when I left.

Buddy and I played a fun round on the sim. New course for us, The Farms on GCQuad. Great fun sim course. Good test for driver.

Afterwards I hit the HMP again. Shop was unpacking a new set with blackout PX LZ shafts. Looked good. So I grabbed the fitting head with 6.5 LZ shaft and hit about 25 shots. Nice to get a good average across a range of strikes. I like the solid feel and forgiveness. I did struggle to control the right to left, and distance control is not what I would like. I think I can finally let it go as an option.
