12/31: 10minutes backswing at just-faster-than-slow speed. Focus on left wrist feel as it cocks and gets to arched (non-cupped). Also did slow downswings to keep the feel of the wrist through the pivot. Work in progress.

Six months straight of completed 5min challenge.

Well done. I've missed the previous few months by a post or two (sloppiness on my part in posting!). But....

For December 2016, I completed the "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge.

Happy New Year, all.

12/31 - grip, stance, slow take aways with focus on deep hands,  and balanced weight shift.  Six months straight of completed 5min challenge. Happy New Year's Eve - Be safe!

20 min alt Sklz swing with 7 iron and driver. Hard to concentrate during session b/c wife insisted on interrupting. Had to run out to store in middle 

Worked on inside out swing, but could not get turn working, felt like all arms today. seven iron routine may be encouraging less turn. To counteract, I took slower swings focusing on inside out and turn, especially with driver

with Sklz, could get some off and on feeling for pulling the club through

this completes month two--November was a partial month as I started during first week. December included practice every day unfortunately posted on wrong forum first two days and once the morning after.

progress:

• hand strength much improved,

• much greater swing awareness and flashes of "feeling the swing"

• set 2017 goals

Improve:

• hit and miss on whether practicing properly (hopefully not reinforcing the wrong swing!!!)

• translating practice swing to hitting real golf balls on range and course. Last time out, swing felt much better but still struggling with consistency

next steps in January

• complete 5 min challenge and post every day

• get instruction on Jan. 14 from golf pro Erika Larkin

• acquire almost golf balls to begin chipping practice

• have a very happy new year!

Truth be told, I've contemplated taking a break from it, but I've now committed to keeping it up in order to improve. It seems like an overwhelming commitment to doing it everyday, but then I remind myself that's it only 5-20mins out of my whole day.

Day 31. Last Day. I have completed this months practice challange.  

Here I am on the practice green, putting again,  after getting an early phone call to golf with a buddy on a Saturday. My practice focus again, is always on the read, stance, alignment, ball position, and grip. Been doing this for 15 minutes as my partener is late. I will be kicking his butt for making me play on a Saturday.

I've enjoyed just having a place to "blog" notes on my detailed practice (to keep my swing thread uncluttered), and honestly the rigid "every day" thing isn't too critical for me. Although it's nice to hit a month!  If I back off, I'd likely do it in a way where I logged stuff here to stay in touch with others, but not necessarily obsess about missing days.

Like you say, it's not that hard, and I'm probably gonna make some swings anyway. Plus I'll probably log into TST anyway too, so then it's not that hard to post something- to remind myself to stay focused on my piece. 

I hear @Fairway_CY may join us next month! 

@woodzie264- just don't injure yourself. Hoping you're able to keep golf going with some of the issues I saw you write about elsewhere.

Thanks and ditto. Warm here on Tuesday, so I may actually play and not practice.

@iacas  I think its great that you offer an achievement for doing what we should be doing anyway. Ive completed the 5 minutes daily for December but I am gonna continue doing it forever. My score didnt reflect it today but practicing every day has helped me. It has set a good habit for the future and I think thats what its supposed to do , so thank you.

Did I forget to do something? @RandallT and @Patch also completed the challenge for Dec. 

No, I missed things. Oh, I think when I merged his red post from the "Claim Your Achievements" thread it took me to the bottom of this thread, so I missed the red text posts above. Sorry. My bad.

Now it's @woodzie264, @CarlSpackler, @Patch, @RandallT, and @Strat-Pack Rick.
