15 minutes of mirror work on 3/4 backswings and steady head. This was my first time completing a 5 min challenge. I only had a couple times where the reason I did it was so I could post and complete the challenge. I think I made some gains and am now in the routine of doing something working on my game daily.

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

1/31 - 5 minutes mirror work using the Torc swing trainer to help feel the shaft flattening during the start of the downswing.

I have completed the 5 Minutes a Day Practice for January.  :dance:

Range work today.  Still working on my takeaway...making a much fuller turn and taking it away a little faster.  Everything still feels really good.  Also worked on 3/4 swings with wedges as well.  Hadn't really focused on anything less than a full swing in a while so I wanted to make sure I can dial the changes up and down.

That's it for the month...I hit every day (at least I'm pretty sure I did!)

1/31: 10 minutes of right elbow staying in front. Feeling of elbows close. Confirmed grip. Checked A4 position.

January practice challenge completed! Definitely progress, and looking forward to getting to the range when I can.

30 min

sklz swing trainer

7 iron around body, Y and L swings with concentration on lag

pump drill on full swing and finally full swing 

same thing with driver

2 sets with both clubs and Sklz in between 

After almost 3 months of almost every day practice. starting feel less casting, and hopefully more natural swing. Right hand feels lighter and less stressed

didn't make the month. Missed this past weekend because had to go help my brother-in-law and his family in Chillan where there have many wild fires. Their country house burned to the ground with all the belongings and memories inside. Fortunately no one was hurt and he has an apartment in the city

1/31: Shot 13 over on 13 holes this evening. Nice contact and mostly straight with the driver, just started them right a lot and ended up in the trees several times. Irons were working well and even the misses weren't too bad, but hitting from the trees on your second shot makes it hard to keep up with Ol' Man Par.

Scrambled for par a couple times and almost made a 20 footer and 60 footer for birdie. Pitching was very good again. Just a touch closer to the hole on average and I think the par numbers are going to go up. A few doubles sprinkled in there (because it's golf), but all in all I felt like I did a much better job of just making shots.

JANUARY CHALLENGE COMPLETE! :dance:

    • A competition is set up as a series of knockout rounds but each game is played as a 'match' using strokeplay counting (ie the winner is the one with the lowest net score). Should each game/'match' be treated as a 2 man field strokeplay competition or should each player record their score as a general play score?
    • A bit of foul language, but I don't think that bothers anybody in here:    
    • I'm playing 9 holes today. Right now is is pure sun, 48* temp, and gentle breeze. I have to see how my new clubs like it on a golf course!
    • I can't speak to this condition, but I had hand surgery last summer to reattach 2 tendons in my left pinkie. Some more general thoughts from me first, and then I'll talk about my experience if you'd like. If you opt to have hand surgery, make sure you discuss the recovery process with your hand surgeon. The healing process is easy, and hand surgery is not as invasive as most other surgeries (although it looks like this surgery is way more invasive than what I had). I had basically no pain after surgery. The bitch is the physical therapy. Make sure you talk to your doctor about what physical therapy will look like for you after the surgery. Also make sure you have a hand surgeon, not any old orthopedic surgeon. Hand surgeons are way more qualified and skilled than a regular orthopedic surgeon. Finally, ask how long it will take before you can use your hand for normal activities again.  I'm basically back to normal in my pinkie and hand now, but it was a pretty intense process. I started physical therapy 2 weeks after my surgery. From 2 weeks until about 4 months after surgery, I saw a hand therapist every 2 weeks. 6 weeks after my surgery, the physical therapy got very intense. At that point, I started doing exercises on my finger every hour I was awake. I was also doing about an hour of scar massage every day to break up the scar tissue. It's been about 6 months on, and I'm still doing exercises almost every hour, trying to get that last little bit of movement back. Note that I had to learn to move my pinkie again, and I had to break through a bunch of scar tissue to get the tendon to be supple again. After 6 weeks, I was allowed to do most things, but I didn't get the okay to golf until 3 months after the surgery. I had to use dictation software at work because I could only type with one hand for a while. I couldn't really cook or, the worst part, hold my baby for 6 weeks.  The surgery itself was simple and healing was fast. Like I said, I had basically no pain. My incision was only about 1/3 of the way down my palm, though. They removed my stitches 2 weeks after the surgery without any problems. The scar is not very noticeable. Sadly, haha. I should get a better scar out of all this at least! I do not regret the decision to have surgery, because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to move my pinkie. Looking back, I wish I knew more about the recovery process in advance, because that was the most arduous part.
