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

  • Make a detailed post describing your practice every day during the month. Try to limit the number of very short or "ditto" type posts. Describe what you did for at least five minutes of practice (indoors or out, with or without golf balls, etc.).
  • 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 in red text so I can notice it and give you the award.

Enjoy and practice hard!

Note: you can miss one day per monthly challenge if you have a good reason and still be eligible for the monthly award.

6/10/17: So GIR are "king". Yesterday I shot my lowest 9 holes of the year. 38, no birdies, but 7 pars and 2 bogeys. But I hit 4 GIR, 2 Fringes, and the 3 Greens I missed that I couldn't putt wer

My hips have a tendency to sway back (away from the target) on the backswing...  

Gonna give this a go.   6/1/2017: I spent 1 1/2 hours at the putting green working on chipping with a SW and PW and putting.   I've developed a game where I chip to the 6 holes on the green

6/1/2017:

I spent 1 1/2 hours at the putting green working on chipping with a SW and PW and putting.   I've developed a game where I chip to the 6 holes on the green and try to get down with a total of 10 putts.  I practiced my Aimpoint reading with each.

On the bus and the metro, I got 5min of very discrete Don Saladino lateral stretches done without undue attention from other passengers

40 min Sklz, 7i and driver

stop at top, pump (3x) and full swings

pretty strong workout with only a couple of set repeats due to poor form

chipping

less than 4/11 three times in a row so restarted drill

5/11, then 5/11 and by the time I was finishing drill, started to have better form

I crashed and burned the last time I tried to do this; then, my right elbow flared up for a while.  Let's try again...

6/1:  Little rainy, so didn't go to play, but got in long practice session....
Warmup and conditioning session w/OW & Momentus; 3x15 w/OW; 2x10 w/Momentus
80 ball pitching session from my various "tees" around the yard; focus on tempo and letting my body/turn drive the swing
25 foam-ball full swing session w/TourStriker 7ip off mat; focus on full turn back and then using core to drive through ball w/lag--best striking session I've had in a long time.  25/25 on strong swing w/good contact, just a couple of little pushes and pulls.
1x20 OW conditioning/cool-down session

6/1: Walked nine after work this evening. Shot 4 over with 6 pars, 2 singles, and a double. 

Slow play in front so I skipped the middle of the course and played 1-5 & 15-18. Driver and irons were working well, hit five greens and was less than a yard off on two others. Four-putted on one hole, really can't explain that, but great evening otherwise.

6/2:  Did my usual pitching in the yard, this time from ~28yds. to my pin/hole.  18 balls; focused on tempo...just keepin' from getting' quick
15mins. putting in my house to my trusty ball return thingy.  Focused on tempo from the tempo thread (start on 1, transition at 3, hit at 1)...that has been a godsend; putting very well.

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
