We have all seen the guys on the golf channel use a hula-hoop. I was watching this morning and Breed was talking chipping so I was glued. I tried it and keeping your hands coming around instead of down the target line feels weird to me while chipping. Is this something worth focusing on ? I sure will if it is a good thing , It just feels odd. I do not want to practice in the wrong direction. Chipping and pitching is something Im trying to dial in so Im willing to try anything. Hula-Hoop really ??

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

1/1 - Putting in the basement. Working to get the feel of my new grip.

1/2 - Putting in the basement in the AM. PM - Went to range and worked on my new drill. Worked with 54 deg wedge, PW, 7 iron and driver doing the same drill repeat. Around 45 minutes. Too dark to film unfortunately.

150 balls at local range. Batches of 10 balls starting from PW moving through bag concentrating on each shot and working on swing technique and trying for consistently getting a decent contact resulting in straight(ish) shots with acceptable flight. Decent results as really took time with each ball settling and thinking about what I want to happen

30 minutes slow swings, mirror work, and about 30 balls into a net focusing on feel of half swing and good pivot. Also making sure setup looks good.

1/2: More pitching practice. 10 minutes of distance work with normal ball position, then about 10 minutes altering trajectory up or down using ball position but trying to hit the same distances.

25 min. Alternate Sklz swing trainer, 7 iron, and move the hose watering the plants

Sklz, 7 iron, hose

then Sklz, driver, hose

interesting concentration drill--inside out swing focus but don't flood the yard!

small to big swings to get inside out path is working well with 7 iron and much better with driver. Makes me wonder if there is an optimum, smooth and xx% strength of full swing and what distance that might be. If I swing smoothly, inside out at 50% strength, will I get only 50% of the distance or will I get more? How about 75%? Gonna have to try it next time I go to range.

50 balls lunch time range, focusing on swing and connecting well with ball again using PW then mid irons for first 30.

Last 20 balls #3 & #5 woods off the deck as when used driver on first ever round was shocked and horrified at how different "in real life" to when on range with nothing in the way so figured I'd practice the fairway woods and use them until I get comfortable/confident enough to swing the brick!

Back to a normal routine today. Up early to workout, then spent 15 mins with mirror work feeling correct backswing positions and pivot.

2. Worked today before work on my takeaway, (keeping angle in wrists in back-swing and not letting the club head get farther away from my target line than my hands until my hands are at hip height. and then the same motions in the downswing) nice and slow takeaways to put the feel in my body. might take it to the indoor range later on and work some more.

    • Yeah transaction was made problematic by eBay not taking care in the first instance. Deesgolfsales said their description was correct lol eBay accepted that without checking anything, I sent a photo of the sole showing two dents one quite large. Deesgolfsales said I’d had it for a month and damaged it, truth was I’d had it two days and had a good look at it until I was bragging about the good deal I’d got hahaha. He loved telling me I’d been done over, until my 3rd-ish try at appeal where I got a response... so next time I’m asking for more photos???
    • Having to make a full stop at a stop sign in the wide-open backcountry of Colorado when there's no vehicle in sight for 2 miles.  A state trooper hiding behind a giant tumbleweed nailed me and gifted me with a ticket. Erik, I know you weren't asking me but I had an answer.  Tumbleweeds have never been an innocent dead rolling plant ever since then.
    • n=1 with the SM bag. I carried today, and took 12 clubs. The SM bag is much lighter than the Ping Hoofer. It was so light that I feel like I could add my 4-iron and LW in the bag and still not be bothered by the load. However, the fabric/materials also appear thinner/lighter weight. Not that this means it is less durable, but maybe it could be. The Hoofer fabric feels like it could survive a cataclysmic event. The SM bag straps are a little wider and less thick than the Hoofer, but equally comfortable. The pad that rests on your back on the SM is thinner and not quite as comfortable as the Hoofer, which is padded by the rain hood in the pocket behind the pad. But the lightness of the SM bag meant it was not any less comfortable. The SM bag hung a bit more horizontal than the Hoofer, which gave me the uneasy feeling that a club might fall out (none did), so I need to adjust the straps to get this right. Not really a problem. The pocket design and configuration on the Hoofer is better, at least to my preference. I missed the easily accessible magnetic pocket on the Hoofer (where I kept my range finder out of its case). I used a carabiner to clip the rangefinder case onto the bag. It makes getting the rangefinder out and putting away take a little more time, but just something to get used to. The leg unfolding/folding mechanism works great. Overall, pretty pleased with the SM, although like I said, only n=1.
    • I just explained what happened and asked for any tips on removing/installing so I don't deform another grip. Never had this happen to such a large extent (sometimes there is a tiny bit of stretching on the lower part of the grip, but never the top part) on any other Pure grip, so I'm hesitant to try another adjustment without changing my technique. So I'm hoping they'll say what happened was unusual, or I used too much pressure, or to hold the grip in a certain way to prevent that, or something like that.
