    I’d get on a GC2 or GC Quad. Make sure there is no distance boost on and see what that says.

    Yes, that would be ideal to get on GC Quad or GC2, Trackman or something top notch. Not something I have access to I guess, are you aware of any places in town?

    Yeah, I'm due for a swing intervention. In the meantime I'm going to probably need to do some lessons locally, in person. I'm not doing a good enough job making changes on my own. Likely a result of not being able to come up with good feedback systems to know when I'm doing things wrong or right.

    I knew they had a GC2, I guess I didn't know if you could just pay to use it to hit on outside of scheduling a custom fitting.

    they did a long time ago but it’s been a long time since I asked.

    Happy 2020 everyone! It's been awhile since I shared an update. I took some time toward the end of last year and through the holidays were I didn't do much of any golfing and tried to focus on fitness and getting my knee feeling good again. I revisited past lessons from Monte, and wrote down the feedback and where I need to go. I also re-read a lot of The Practice Manual by Adam Young and began really defining and structuring my offseason practice plan. That book has been really helpful in many many ways.

    I have mostly finished my 2020 golf goals, but will share in a subsequent post when they're completely finalized.

    Here's the swing as of this evening - I captured from behind as well as from target side (forgive the net, I wasn't brave enough to put my phone up on the other side), in addition to the regular face on and down the line views. I've really focused on correct pelvic movement and shortening the backswing and feel like I'm finally getting somewhere. Face on shows I'm still trailing a bit with the arms, but I'm hoping to focus more on that now that the other parts are improving.

    Thanks Monte, I'll add softening the elbows to my list. Is the pelvis movement and backswing looking better? Are my hands too deep at the top?

    As promised in my previous post, here are my 2020 golf goals - in no particular order

    • <= 2.5 handicap - I got it as low as 6.6 last summer and I feel like this is reachable
    • Repeat as match play league champs (2 man team league)
    • Score a round at even par (or better!)
      • I have shot under par a couple of times and even par a handful more on 9 hole rounds but have never put a full 18 together; need to figure out if it's a stamina/endurance issue, mental issue or what the road block might be to transfer that 9 hole success to 18 hole rounds.
      • Lowest in relation to par that I have shot is +4
    • Win club championship 1st flight
      • Or qualify for championship flight and place top 3
    • Qualify to play in the Ryder Cup style event our club participates in with 3 local other clubs
    • Play 9 hole rounds before work, twice a week (while school is out)
    • 60% GIR - my GIR has been atrocious the past 3 years; I would probably be in the lowest 5th percentile among single digit handicappers
    • Sand Saves >= 45 %
      • I made great improvement in my bunker play last year with Monte's technique and a lot of practice, which got me my confidence back. Now I'd like to narrow my focus from getting out of the bunker to anywhere within 20 feet to hitting bunker shots inside 10 feet to give myself better chances at sand saves
    • Average < 30 putts per round
      • Specifically I need to improve at the longer short putts 5-9' (I just didn't make much at all from that range last year) & the mid-range putts 10-25'
      • I am very solid on short putts inside 5 feet, and usually pretty solid on the long lag putts but for whatever reason my midrange putting just isn't there. I'll have to explore what barriers might be hindering me there (mental, approach, technique, etc)
    • No rounds > 87 (43 for 9 hole rounds)
    • Play 5 or more tournaments this year, 2 SDGA events & 3 others
    • Practice better - I could write a short novel here, but I'll spare the details

    The new rocket launcher arrived today! Bag is officially set for 2020, outside of possibly needing wedges if grooves start to go. I wasn't planning on making any changes but I fell in love with my Epic Flash Sub-Zero 5w. I haven't hit a fairway metal that well in some time so I decided to get the 3w to go along with it. I really liked the @MITSUBISHI CHEMICAL Tensei AV 75X in the 5w so I stuck with that. Excited to get the lofts and spin dialed in before the season starts.

    Now I might just need to get a matching 5w cover! Funny thing is I went from being a Callaway hater, but now I'm onboard!

    Also, shout out to @Fujikura Golf, still loving that Ventus Red shaft.

    I think that would be awesome! I'm trying to find a time to take the family to the Dells area for a few days and hopefully I can hit a couple of the great golf destinations around the area. Not sure if I will get to make that happen this year though as we've already got a couple of getaways booked for summer 2020.


    I would definitely love to play Lawsonia & Sand Valley if I could make that happen!
