Welcome to the "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge for June, 2016! The rules are the same as always:
Make a somewhat detailed post describing your practice every day during the month.
No back-dating or pre-dating posts or practice sessions.
On the last day of the month, if you completed the challenge, post about it, preferably in red text or something so I can notice it and give you the award.
Detail what you did for at least five minutes of practice (indoors or out, with or without golf balls, etc.).
Enjoy and practice hard!
For courses with really large greens... Bogey golfer or not, if it's 30 to the middle and 40 to the back ping I'm definately going to play my 40 yard shot. And if it's 30 to the pin and 40 to the middle, I'm definately playing my 30 yard shot. Aiming for the middle in those situations just doesn't make sense unless there is trouple to avoid.
Played 18 in a double bogey blitz then 9 of a captains choice. I need to work on everything but am still struggling with tee shots and short game. I felt like I was actually playing pretty decent but I had several make able chances for par that resulted in tap in bogeys. Overall I shot a 97 which felt more like a 90-91 of you count the tap ins.
While I was playing in the captains choice I was told again that I need to slow down my back swing. I get this unsolicited advice a lot and I'm thinking of taking it to heart just to see.
Good luck with it and report your result, please. I have similar plans but they get ignored too often. Such is golf.
In the last 3 rounds, my only swing thought was to keep my right elbow close to body during swing. I can't say I kept to my promise. Before I knew it, I forgot about the thought for 2 - 3 hole before I had remind myself again. But I am still happy with the result. 2 of the 3 rounds were excellent round. They staved me off from rejoining bogey golfer status. My next official HI is still going to be below 16 - hooray.
