Now I have to figure out how to edit, ......bear with me, lol.  Yesterdays drill.  I'm right handed, I figured how to change that now too.

My rhythm is 62-63. I’ve known this for a while. My putter is 35.5” and heavier than standard. I apologize about the construction noise. Behind me they are demolishing a building and to my left, my neighbor is having a carpenter do some work.

Day 8:

97 bpm. Seriously?

Love the alignment stick drill. I don't have a wristy stroke, but it definitely helps with some path issues I have.

Day 8. No video today, but I locked in at 76 bpm, a bit slower than most I'm seeing on here. I tried it at a variety of speeds from like 60-95 and the mid 70s was effortless for my stroke.

I'm not sure how accurate mine was, id like to practice my stroke silently and have some one match the metronome to my stroke to get a really accurate reading.

Agreed - good point; I may have subconsciously adapted to its rhythm. I did try a couple of different speeds and felt comfy at 84, but still...

Love the Day8 drill.  It follows what I've been working on with my game and what I've been working on with my grandson.  I ask him to go "tick-tock" at somewhere around 70bpm and have used the metronome app on my phone to help imbed the tempo.   For me I like 68bpm as a good pace.  In my video you will notice I shortened and lengthened the stroke while maintaining tempo.  Likewise I tried to stay as close as possible to 1:1 backswing to downswing.  For kicks I did include a down-the-line shot to help me discern whether I follow a straight line or arc slightly.  Pardon the messy shop....

You can do that. Just count frames or something. Do it over many strokes and take an average.

Most metronome apps have a "Tap Tempo" feature. You can do the drill without the metronome and get a feel for the rhythm by either counting or making a beep or click noise when the putter crosses the low point. keep that rhythm up and tap it into the metronome as a starting point.

Well, the tempo part went pretty well, but my stroke looks awful in this video. Way too wristy.

No, for some reason @Sammydreep deleted all of his videos. 😞

Okay a few days ago was the first time I’ve ever posted on YouTube. I guess what I post on here is the link to the YouTube site , correct?

Not sure what I was thinking but when I uploaded a new video , I deleted the previous days on the assumption that nobody in YouTube land would want to look at me practicing without realising I’ve deleted them from here. 
Sorry my bad🙄

Just keep them unlisted. When you delete them, they disappear everywhere.

Your stroke doesn't look wristy to me.

 I had a look in the settings, I didn’t see unlisted but I noticed that private is ticked so I guess that is okay.

After my first upload I got a message from some random person saying how he loved my channel and could I subscribe to his, looked like a scam so I ignored it ,but how could he see my video if it’s private, any ideas?

Private only lets you see the videos.

He probably didn't see your videos. It was probably just a spam.

    • Unfortunately it is the LPGA and they simply get less viewership and thus less media coverage.
    • My league has a Par 3 as the #10 hole so every other week that is the 1st hole we play (the back 9 is par 35).  And like above, there is no driving range.  If I have time I try to hit a range before heading to the course but I am always the last group off so any warm-up has cooled down by the time I tee off.  I think it is more a mental thing but I really do hate having to hit my iron before my driver on the 1st hole of the day.

    • I have an AT and love it. It's fine with hills so long as you have the stabilizer wheel extended. On really steep hills, I hold the handle just to be sure. I have tipped it over a couple of times, but those are few and far between and have been caused by depressions in the ground, where the cart tips forwards into it and then immediately flips backwards again on the way out of it. That gives it a bunch of momentum that can topple it over. Other than that it's been great. It can quite happily manage the hills on 15 and 18 on Bethpage Black. Those are pretty steep. 
    • Haha this is true, but I’ll be 53 this year and was thinking man it would be nice not to have to carry or push this cart uphill during the humid summer in Kentucky.  Hey at least I’m still walking the course!   I did go on a long hike yesterday at red river gorge with just a backpack, it was nice not carrying a m16/203 grenade launcher and ammo.. sorta
