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.

    • 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.   
    • I would like to but I use it to keep in contact with former players and family. 
    • I used to have problems with it, but no longer. I remember I had a cortisone shot at one point, but the real key is your shoes. Make sure you aren't wearing shoes that are too tight or short in the toe box area. Any of your shoes, not just golf shoes. Warning: I am not a medical professional. The above is my opinion based on personal experience.
