Welcome to the "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge for November, 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!

Thanks. She's 14 now. I took her to the cemetery and let her drive the Smart car. I figured anybody she could hit would already be dead. She's been driving carts so long it was totally fine.

Walked 18 today. 17 actually. I got tired of following the "date golfers" and put down a bogey on 18. Shot +10 with no doubles.  P.s. Forgot my Game Golf at home. 

Firstly, Low point control is controlling the low point of the swing so that it is in front of the ball's position (while at address) so that you will have a descending blow on the back of the ball.  

chipping and pitching work. trying to make a relaxed swing with good contact. Played  today, 80 in northwest Indiana.

Off topic, but....

Who won? :-P

I ended up shooting +2 with just my 6-iron. Putting, everything.

She shot 47. Some really good shots and some careless, sloppy ones. She had back-to-back birdies, and made a 3 on #8 too because the tees are closed and she played it from 145 yards.

That girl has an unbelievable swing. 

Started off November in the back yard with my old 7 iron. Started slow and short then got a little bit longer until almost a full swing. Still ingraining that feeling of staying behind the ball. Trying to figure out where I can set up my net. With the time changing next week, it will be dark early in the evening. Won't have time for the range after work.

11/1: I'm back in this month. Hadn't given up (proper) practice, just got a little distracted and off-track.

Five minutes focusing on hip turn with wall drill. I've tend to fall forward (towards the ball) during the swing and noticed during this drill it seemed impossible to fall forward without trying to (granted, I wasn't holding a club). I got in 10 minutes or so in the yard with my lob wedge, just easy chips and pitches, towards a few cones the kids had left in the yard.

11/01 - grip, stance, slow take away with focus on bigger turn while maintaining steady head, balanced weight shift through the swing

11/02 - Diddo (with 7i). Yesterday I realized my tempo was off, so was being conscientious of that as well.

I'm 62, fat and out of shape. I feel part of practice is being able to do the drills to make you better. So for part of my monthly challenge  i'm doing golf related work out for 30 - 48 min. , 3 days a week. I'm using Kia fitness for golf. Today was day one. Hope this is acceptable.

11/2 - 15 minutes mirror work at the gym. Focused on centered hip turn (getting my right hip to move slightly forward) and diagonal swing path per my Evolvr lesson last month. I will keep working these two pieces for a while.

11/2: 20 minutes in the front yard with my lob wedge. Ultra slow-mo, to slow-mo, to easy swings, focusing on hip-turn and making sure I don't sway back. Determined to be a stupid monkey about this.

    • Hard to think of a more perfect iron shot from the rough. I guess you could ask to hole out but that seems a little greedy. Brave to even try the shot then it sounds like. Glad you were rewarded!
    • Some of DiMarco's missed putts were pretty timid efforts so that is why I described it as giving them away. He can say he misread them and that is true for some but others really were just poorly struck. It is not to say DiMarco handed the green jacket to Tiger on a silver platter but Tiger was very fortunate that DiMarco did not really capitalize on the chances he was giving himself. That said I agree it does not really take away from the case for Tiger's greatness. The post iacas linked to came off rather biased in tone so I more pointed this out to acknowledge that every Tiger victory was not a controlled cruise either. I think it just goes to show that winning a major is extremely difficult and even the greatest need some bounces to go their way sometimes. It is like that with many sports when played at such an elite level.
    • I played Richter Park a few weeks ago for the first time. It was nice, though not something I desire to drive two hours for. Playing Links at Union Vale again in a few weeks; that is a course that I don't mind the drive for. We could look at other central CT courses. Wintonbury Hills is really nice. I'm playing Gillette Ridge tomorrow, which is supposed to be similar. 
    • Jack's courses always seem to be like you have to always be calculating and many risk/reward decisions. It's harder to relax on his courses, imo.
    • Depending where folks come from, West Point Golf Course would be a nice location.
