1/4: Putting practice in the hallway, 4-6 foot putts. Just focused on setting up properly and hitting my line. Welcome to the club! Lots of stuff you can do without a club. Two of my favorites.

12/09 - chipping with putting method on carpet at work... aiming a Gatorade cap (I'd estimate it to be a 10-11 on stimp meter)

Had probably the best range session I've had in the past few years.  Working on turning my left shoulder fully and speeding up the backswing.  Really, really solid contact and a great sound coming off

Spent about 15 min working on mirror drills on my backswing. Also 50 reps of wall drill still working on the feeling of correct pivot.  Will hit some half swings later today in my basement.

After playing 18 holes, hit bucket of balls.

PW: inside out swing was good. Contact solid and ball flight straight. On a few occasion, good distance straight into wind. No draw. 

7 iron was more hit and miss. Ball flight sometimes slicing and some very fat shots. Definitely not as consistent as PW.

driver was very solid and sometimes long although hard to tell how long. No draw

All in all, good inside to out session. Practice swings seem to be helping

1/8.  Worked on tilt and turn to 90* mark to increase flexibility.  Stiff right lat.

Saturday 7th January. 

9 holes with son, on a terribly wet course in Rochdale, then half hour with pro trying to understand why I often "top" golf balls when not on mats. 

 

Sunday 8th Jan. 1/2 hour on very muddy field with #9 iron trying to get decent height and flight instead of hitting well above equator and drilling ball under earth!!!! Mild success?

12/07 - almost didn't get it in today. With the snow, forgot about it. I just did some pitch swings in garage...honestly just to keep the streak alive. ;-)

12/08 - ditto

More chipping, and working on grip this weekend. Spent a little while working on getting a grip on the club. finding the right position for my hands that was comfortable and allows me to keep both of my hands as a unit throughout my entire swing. Really worked on having a feeling of the hands working together  this weekend. a lot of takeaways and short swings to feel how each of the hands is working and trying to get them on the same page. chipping was the best way to start this practice. will go back to a little putting later today and more grip feeling as well. 

I can tell already that i am feeling more and more patient with every practice session. this is going to be a good year!

Monday 9th Jan - Back to the range again at lunch, still trying to get a proper contact with ball and irons but not consistent enough to be able to confidently declare I am good enough to play a round of golf without either a) digging up enough green stuff to relay a small garden or b) hit the ball above the equator so much that it tries to drill its way through the earth to Australia!!!!! Need to get this sorted!

 

Still awaiting delivery of Zepp analyser to try and con myself into thinking I know how to swing a golf bat.

Great image. I would have to use fake golf balls to avoid breaking a window!

15 mins of mirror work focusing on setup and hip turn.  I'll get to hit some balls into a net this evening focusing on my arms stopping on the backswing when my pivot stops or 1/2 swing feels.

1/10.  Morning turn and tilt movements this.  Working out the stiff bug inside.  Not as tight today.

Aah! I braved the cold yesterday but forgot to post! Please forgive the double-post today...

1/8: Cold and windy, but I bundled up and broke out the hand warmers. About 20-30 minutes of pitching practice in the front yard. Practiced for 10 minutes with my 58W and the rest with my pitching wedge. I like popping them up in the air with my lob wedge, but I think with a little more practice I'm going to be more accurate in the long run with the pitching wedge.

1/9: Still cold and I haven't thawed out from yesterday yet, so just 10 minutes of mirror work after work today. Focus on hip turn w/ no sway going back.

    • You make it sound like 15 minutes and 25 tries is a lot. Lots of people spend hours on some bosses, myself included.
    • I’m nearsighted, about -3.25 diopters.  For daily work, I use progressive lenses.  For golf, I have single vision (no reading/progressive) sunglasses, as you do. a) Yes, I lift my sunglasses as needed to record scores, adjust pin/putting location, etc. I’ve never really thought of it as a problem, but I can see how it might be for some. b) For low light, I have a very inexpensive set of single vision regular glasses that I ordered online ($50 or so because I splurged and upgraded the lenses). I keep them in my golf bag all the time.  At dusk, I switch from my nice sunglasses to my cheapo clear glasses. From time to time I consider contacts (I’ve worn them in the past), but then I’d probably have to use a set of readers to deal with (a).
    • This is how the selections have been picked for The Masters winner. I do see a slight problem in that two people picked JS at -14 . From what @iacas mentioned, if I am not mistaken, there can only be one selection for a particular golfer with reference to their final score? I noticed Darkfrog selected JS first at -14. Check out all the selections below:   Colins69                Tony Finau -11 phillyk                    Patrick Canlay -11 ncates00               Patrick Cantlay -13 nevets88               Rory McIlroy -12 pganapathy            Rory McIlroy -17 Darkfrog               Jordan Spieth -14 onthehunt526       Jordan Spieth -14 woodzie264          Dustin Johnson -14 RickK                     Dustin Johnson -17 iSank                      Dustin Johnson -18 DewSweeper09    Justin Thomas -9 Birdieputt              Justin Thomas -13 Billy Z                    Justin Thomas -14 Zippo                     Bryson DeChambeau -11 Hardspoon            Bryson DeChambeau -15 False hopes          Lee Westwood -11 Yukari                    Collin Morikawa -14 Bucki1968             Paul Casey -10  
    • Ahh okay. Interesting you're feeling that already. I definitely don't want to cause a wrist injury here by suggesting you feel it more lol. It's not like egregiously bad at all obviously. It's not quite Lee Westwood, but you're not like super super far off from that.  Anyway, obviously disregard whatever I say if the instructor disagrees. 
    • I do palmar flexion at the top, but it is worth a look, thanks. I’ll ask my instructor.
