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.

6/5/17:

Slow swings with a sand wedge, trying not to change my peripheral vision. Mostly it was an exercise to get my weight forward.

June 5 - Mirror work at the gym. Focused on the turn from the top, but also paid attention to the club face position at A6. Video showed it to be fairly open there.

6/5:  forearm release drill, to hopefully help cut down on weak flares to the right next time out; also read Ch. 10 on Short Game Equipment in Pelz's Short Game Bible.

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.

June 6 - Mirror work at the gym. Also, I'm going to a launch monitor later to work on my shot zones for Driver, 3W, 7iron and PW if there is time. Driver it the priority.

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.
