I didn't practice yesterday (6/3), so I'm already out of it, plus I neglected to post on 6/1 and 6/2.  But I aim to practice most days *and* to get into the habit of trying to practice all days.

Today I went to the range in the late afternoon.  Outdoors, with range balls, on mats.  I spent the majority of my time on pitch shots, 56 through 9iron, focusing on address, posture, and swinging through.  I hit a number of really poor ones in my round on Thursday so this has been on my mind.  A good number hooked or were pulled, which surprised me, but I made solid contact more often than not, so I'm reasonably happy with how it came out.

Today was also the first day I used my future golf room, doing the at-home driver practice exercise for ten reps from LSW.  This doesn't constitute five minutes, but I did want to brag about that too.

June 4th:- 1 1/2 hours at the driving range - unusual for me. Great time figuring out what worked in terms of grip, ball position and stance. Very encouraging.

6/5:

Worked more on lag putting this morning.   Yesterday I noticed that all of my practice was up hill, this morning I worked on the same lag putting exercises but downhill.   It was an eye opener to see the difference.  

I also did about 5 minutes of chipping practice.

5 min Sklz swing trainer. Visitors in the house so we will see if I can get through this visit w/o missing a day--maybe back to practice sessions in the bathroom!

6/5:  Copied @roamin without knowing it.  Pouring outside most all day, so I putted in the hallway for 10-15mins.  Focused on keeping the current stroke grooved, and tempo.

6/6:  more forearm release drilling. I also hit some controlled (i.e. not killing it), full 9 irons in the yard with foam balls, focusing on a full finish with a good release.
