Welcome to the "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge for January, 2017! The rules are the same as always:

  • Make a somewhat detailed post describing your practice every day during the month.
  • No back-dating or pre-dating posts or practice sessions.
  • On the last day of the month, if you completed the challenge, post about it, preferably in red text or something so I can notice it and give you the award.
  • Detail what you did for at least five minutes of practice (indoors or out, with or without golf balls, etc.).

Enjoy and practice hard!

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

AHHA !!  Here it is.... Just got back from the range. Ball position practice forward , middle and back. Also distance from the ball. Ive been crowding the ball a bit with my longer irons, I think. Get off to a good start this year everybody and Hit Em Good !!

20 min alt Sklz swing trainer and 7 iron and driver

worked hard at taking a slower swing to make sure that path was inside to out. With Sklz and driver felt good path and worked on repeating at least 15 times (13 actually which is the number of drives on my home course)

did same thing with 7 iron only had less success.

trying to get the feel of club whipping thru

good start to New Year

Reviewed my latest evolvr video lesson. Did mirror work for about 10 mins trying to get the feeling of half swings. Spent 20 mins hitting 7 irons with that same focus. Stopping periodically to do the wall drill I have been working on for my pivot.

Worked 30 minutes on addressing the ball.  Concentrating on a more upright posture with hands closer in, knees slightly flexed.  Held static position (on and off) while observing mirror.

10 minutes of backswing work. Working on feeling more the right hip back versus dragging the hands back. This helps me set the club on a better swing path. Then some slow motion work on shallowing the club. I need to invest into a indoor putting mat. The carpet is not good for putting on.

1/1: Back in the mix this month. Game has been going really well lately. My (n)GIR numbers have gone up and it's highlighted my inability to chip and putt. Spent about 30 minutes in the yard working on pitch shot distances, shooting at different targets around the yard.

Got to get out on the course yesterday and worked on a few things. mostly working on syncing my body and giving myself room in the downswing. today i am analyzing some swings and writing out a plan for the upcoming week and what my thoughts are around my swing. More mental practice today, and then headed to the indoor range later on.

2. 100 slow swings (no ball striking) from alignment change position to a higher hand finish position.  

Started doing this last winter and now again this winter. Eliminating my thought about ball flight (or lack of it lol) lets me concentrate on various pieces of my swing; hip turn, right heel (I'm a lefty) , strike location, overall feel.

    • 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.
