I talked golf, and watched golf, and resisted playing golf, and shopped golf, and made a tee time for the morning I might regret.

I went to the local par 3 with the idea that I was going to play the course. I was the only one out there so I played six balls at once, which made keeping score impossible. I just worked on some short game stuff and tried to enjoy having the course to myself.

Played 27 holes and got in a 30 minute range session. With rounds today and tomorrow I will have 6.5 rounds in for the week. :) My watch is telling me I’ve walked 37 miles the last three days and 90% of that has been on the course.

Had a very good range session with the irons today. Focused on grip pressure and only taking my back swing back half way and loading from there. Saw really good results. Did a little putting practice with 5’ putts and in.

Walked another 9 with the new ZX7s. Still amazed at -- and thrilled with -- the 4-iron. Starting to really enjoy and see the benefit of the V-sole. I'm an old-fashioned 8-iron chipper so still trying to adjust to chipping with the lighter shaft (Modus 120 vs S300).

Cleaned clubs and regripped 9 iron. It’ll be nice to have 14 clubs in the bag again!

Called for a tee time but they were booked until 6:30. Went to practice chipping and as I was done. I was asked to play the back 9 with a threesome that I have played with before. Shot a 40 didn't drive the ball direction-ally very well. But my chipping was on point:)

Had a quick visit to the club before Golf TV coverage.
Thought i might sneak in 9 holes or at least get to hog the green by arriving just before what's commonly lunch time.
Nope, it was like a minor ant hill out there. Can't blame them, first sunshine in a week.

Anyway, got a small bucket, managed to spot a gap between groups to sneak in for holes 15-18. Tried to make the most out of them with a little solo 2 ball scramble for par-bogey-bogey-par.
In the process, learned that playing the 177m par 3 as a very short par 4 might make it safer, but not necessarily easier. Out of bounds right, everything slopes left. Hard to find purchase on the short grass, and you're down in a valley with the green some 15ft above your ball even if you do (or 30-40 if you roll down to the next fairway), guestimating where and how hard to hit the ball.

Got back and finally had room to do what i had intended: hurt myself with pull back putting and stableford putting / chip-&putting drills :)

Played 9 holes, getting use to new irons and woods. Shot much better than last round, old back can only take 9 holes.

A little feet together swing practice with my trusty 9i. Wanted to get my torso moving a little more. Ribs are beginning to feel a little better. Just as long as I don't over cook them.

After that, more chip, and 1 putt practice. I really like this routine. It seems to make me focus more, trying to get the ball into easier 1 putt range.

To finish up I took some time to look at my stance, and ball position as far as the ball being below, or above my feet.

There's been times when standing over a shot, that I thought I had a level lie, when in fact it just looked level.

Now I don't know how uneven the situation has to be to be an issue with ball flights. Just going to pay a little more attention from now on.
