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.

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.

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

 

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.

    • I'm with @Yukari Last week I started with double, birdie, double, and in my younger days, I would have given up right there. Now I know better. Picked up another birdie on the front 9 for a respecable 38, had 3bogeys on the back 9, but birdied the last hole for another 38. Never give up.
    • What are some proven strategies to recover if you have to play 18 holes of tournament golf each day for 2, 3 or even 4 days.?   Right now my weekly practice is as follows   Monday Off Tuesda Par 3 course focusing on distance control with irons and 40 minute putting session Wed Range Day focusing on odd numbered irons and driver.  Experimental shots, hooking, slicing on purpose.   Thursday 9 holes for score,  maybe a short game range session Friday Another short game session (putting chipping, pitching) Saturday AM 9 holes for score, Afternoon Range session practicing shots needed for Sunday Sunday AM Hot Tub soak, drive to the course to arrive 1hour before.  Warm up through bag with wedges, odd numbered irons and driver 18 holes   I'd like to be able to do 18 Saturday and Sunday but need some tips on how not to be so sore Sunday if I'm going to play 2 18s in a row.      
    • Played Saturday at one of the tougher courses (for me) in my area which plays as a Par 72, 70.3/124 - 6,245 yds.  Some highlights/lowlights.  First hole is a 490 y Par 5 - Hit my tee shot weak right and the put a 5w out leaving me 180 to a downhill green.   Hit a 5i clean and looked to be online but once it cleared the hill, I lost sight of it.  As I get closer to the green, my ball is sitting not even 3' from the hole....miracle shot.  For the 3rd consecutive round, I birdie the first hole.  Made bogeys on 2-5. Hole 6 - 143y Par 3 - had one of my best iron shots of the day.  2 putt par. Hole 8 - Par 4 that is about 230 to the water from the tee.  Always have played this with my 3w to land safely before the water hazard.  It may be time to switch to 5w or 4i as my tee shot went into the water.  Ended up with Double Bogey. Finished the front 9 with a 44 which is always excellent here. Back 9 started off terribly as I went +7 over three holes.  This includes a triple bogey on hole 12.  Tee shot left me ~ 165 to the green.  Flew over it and landed in this spongey type of moss on the back tree line.  Took me 3 freaking shots to get back on the green. Back 9 was not much to write home about....had back to back pars but that was it.  Came in on 48 44/48 - 92.....I will say, my tee shots, irons, and putter were all working.  Even with a 92, I must have easily lost 10-12 shots from just around the green.  Frustrating but it tells me what to focus on.  Stats 1 Birdie 3 Pars 9 Bogeys 5 Double + 4 GIR 35 Putts 1 Penalty Sunday, I played at my home course.  Front 9 was nothing special as I went out with a 45 and I then proceeded to light it up on the first half of the back 9.  I started out Par, Birdie, Par, Par putting me -1 after 4 holes and E after 5 holes.   I then had a disappointing finish of Double, Par, Bogey, Double.  Finished 45/41 - 86 for the lowest round of the year.   4 rounds in with scores of 89,87,92,86 so hopefully that is a sign of things to come.  I am feeling much more comfortable on most shots from a driver to a putter.  Just need to get the feel back for around the green and hopefully the scores/handicap will drop.  In those 4 rounds, I have 5 birdies.  In 2019, it took me 16 rounds to get 5 birdies.  Stats 1 Birdie 6 Pars 7 Bogeys 4 Double + 6 GIR 32 Putts 1 Penalty  
    • I will and try to get some swing video this weekend.  My daughter is letting me use her fancy phone stand and I will be able to get behind the line and face on.  I will even put my Zepp on and give you the data from it for that swing.  That is weather permitting, right now in Central Texas with weather can be iffy with rain and thunderstorms.  That, and it is getting hotter than Hades already.
