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.

    • Apparently, Spieth was on Sirius radio and had some quotes about his  swing. You’ve all prob read the articles by now, but I’ll post a quote below “I kind of got to where I was swinging behind me instead of in front of me. “What that means is I just kind of get — that right elbow just got going a little wild on me. And so it could go up and go back behind my torso.  “What I didn’t realize I did so well for a number of years is being able to swing in front of my body, pretty much taking it back and through. It just kind of gradually started getting more and more behind me, and, all of a sudden, I found myself late into the ball, and from there, you just can’t play consistent golf — you’re relying too much on your hands at impact. It just becomes a significant challenge through the bag, and obviously as you go up the bag, you’re one or two degrees off becomes way more widespread.”
    • You're lucky if you actually get it. Most are just get false information.  
    • You know, it's ok to say that you just don't "get it" and excuse yourself from the conversation.
    • Nice, I’ve played all of those courses except Southern Dunes and Shingle Creek, but I’ll be playing Shingle Creek on Tuesday.  
    • Here yesterday’s driver. Added a couple of feels to the drill I am doing. First, the soft arm challenge feel, kind of a float loading from A3.5 through transition. I almost feel as if I just relax the wrists a bit more. Second, my Evolvr instructor had me working on speed development last fall with a slight shift back and feeling taller with raised left heel, then falling into the left heel from A4 to 5. I added these in. What I got was a bit more rotation at impact, my A6 hand and elbow position is deeper into my thigh and a few mph in swing speed. My instructor is pleased with the progress, especially the rotation. I hit 100 mph with this, so I am pleased too! I will stick with this drill and feels for a few weeks. It is paying off.
