I've got an idea, and I'd like buy-in from a good number of people here. I'd like people to commit to doing this every day in April. Since we're all stuck inside (not all, and not literally insid

Day 1 - Early Backswing In the first day we examine the setup, grip, and the early backswing. Faults that we often see: Bad grips (palmy, weak) Bad setups (back flat, butt out, grip

Running about a day behind - here is Day 13's drill.  I love the explanation of letting the club tell where to align the feet.  Have played with this shot many times in the back yard - my son drills on this constantly.  Can safely say that I won't be doing the flop-catch anytime soon.  I did play with this late yesterday after the winds and rain had lifted here in eastern NC.  The grandson loved me hitting the little pop-ups using wiffle balls - he began to try to catch them.  So in one way, I sort of completed the flop-catch....

Day 14:

I did ok, not great. Kept worrying about hitting the frame of my mat.

Turn your mat sideways and put the ball right near the front edge (not the back edge, of course).

I just tried that and the first thing I did was hit it 3” fat and nailed the frame of the mat solid :8)

It’s in my head now, I’m done for the day.

This one was fun. I had an audience and my attorney wife calling the shot. She did her best Cousin Vinny. My goddaughter (off camera to the left) tried a turn with comical results. And yes, there were bunnies.

Day 14, no video today but hit some tees outside and some ping pong balls inside doing this drill. As I expected, it wasnt too hard to do, I feel like I have somewhat decent hand eye coordination since I played baseball growing up and play a lot of ping pong in my basement now.

Spent a bit more time working on the flop shot too, I definitely want to practice this more in the short game area once it opens back up.

No you can’t say middle. 🙂

Nothing like solid contact. That is unless...

Day 14

I'm noticing my right elbow is too close to my body..... and not even 90 degrees let alone more (it actually was something I though i was supposed to do).

Day 14

Used tees for this because I didn’t trust myself with this one using balls. Tried to have my 4 year old boy call the shots in my backswing but he didn’t quite get the idea, so I just alternated between inside and outside.

I like drills like this that reenforce that the golf swing is an athletic / coordinated motion. Sometimes I get bogged down with too many technical thoughts and drills like this feel more free. This was similar to a drill my instructor had me do where she had me address a ball normally, and then swing inside of the ball and try to hit it just off the tip of the toe; this was almost 1.5 years ago so I forget exactly what feel she was trying to instill in my swing, but I think it had to do with shanks/OTT issues.

    • How many women have been timed over 1500m in a pool? Not THAT many. Why wouldn't she dominate the times in this event - given that she is so impressively dominant? How many people have played golf competitively? I'll bet 99.9% of people you see on the street couldn't tell you who Oksana Chusovitina is.
    • My goodness, you aren't kidding. For those who don't see the article for whatever reason:  there's a list of the top 25 fastest times ever recorded in the women's 1,500 meter freestyle swim.  Katie Ledecky owns spots 1-13, and also spots 15, 17, 18, 22, and 25.   The closest thing to that I can think of offhand is in threes.  Tiger Woods owns the top three season-long strokes gained: approach ever recorded (granted, these have only been recorded in, I believe, the Shotlink era), and at one point (up until a few years ago), Kurt Warner threw the most yards ever in a Super Bowl, but was also in second and third place on that list. 
    • Day 155.  Quarantine practice plan, day 11.  I really like this drill and I plan to incorporate it into my practices on a regular basis.  I took video but it's still on my phone, I will likely put it in the relevant thread tomorrow afternoon. 
    • Day 28: Long day at work, so not much time left for golf practice today. Managed some work on downswing priority piece, hit 10 balls, 7-iron, lots of rehearsals between shots. 
    • Day 65, July 29, 2021: More three-quarters swing work.
