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

Last night was a short chipping night. Took PW at many different lengths from the "hole". Going from barely knocking some onto a green(3 ft carry) to a little bit longer (15ft carry). really trying to hone in these close up chip shots, and get those into form and then move out to longer chip shots.

I realized how this can relate to other sports as well. Whenever i used to shoot-around with a basketball, and i wasn't very good then, I would start out by shooting a couple from the foul line and then most of my shots would be from at least 12 ft from the basket. Now when i look back it didn't make any sense because when i would play pick-up games i was so nervous when close to the basket that i would miss a lot of close shots, and i found myself doing that in my golf game early on as well. Crazy how we see so many parallels, but good to reinforce why i am doing certain practice. ( I have since changed my shoot-around techniques for basketball as well if anyone was wondering.)

1/6: Had a storm coming this evening but managed to get 15 minutes of pitching practice in. Worked on aim and direction for a bit and then had some fun experimenting with the clubface and my swing to see how high I could get the ball to go.

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.

30 min range work. PW was great. Inside out swing to launch high, straight shots of 100 yds+ into the wind.

when tried the with 7 iron much less consistent shots. Some shanking, some fat shots

overall, good. Shots may be launching too high.

    • Day 12 - went to range for first time in a good while & worked on my PP, straighter right/trail elbow; completed the associated challenge; seeing some improvements with it in the MySwing thread. 
    • I have a friend who is very consistent, down the middle, sufficient distance, 50ish.  He shoots in the mid to high 70's.  I brought up the Spieth article yesterday while playing.  He said he is the same... knows nothing about the intricacies of the golf swing.  He is self-taught and just plays.  Never thinks about his swing.  I love that innocence.  
    • I enjoyed the first part. It was interesting to see the videos of him with Dina. It was nice to see him as average kid with his friemds.  Wasnt too much of what isnt already known. Now I think I will be in the minority here but I honestly dont care about his cheating. Im actually amazed he could play golf at that high of a level, be in a marriage, and have all that side action all at the same time. I can barely keep a very poor round together let alone all 3 of those. 
    • Hi all,  recently purchased a ping heppler pp59 but after a month i still prefer my old putter 🤦🏻‍♂️Does anybody know if it is possible to have it cut down for my 10 year old lad but keep the adjustability so he can lengthen it as he grows??!    cheers
