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.

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 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

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

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.

    • 235 out on a 2nd shot to a par 5 from a good lie in the fairway.  Barely a downhill lie if anything.  The left side is all woods.  the pin is behind the foliage and the right side of the green is protected by a little pool fairly tight.  Probably 215 to the green, 235 to the pin.  2nd shot is designed to risk to the green, or lay out to the right where there's a simple collection, abeit also a tight fit, or layup to the right short where it's fairly wide. I chose the layout with a little draw - if I hit it straight or push, I'm on the short grass with a little chip.  If I do hit the draw, it should be fine.  Bounce up from short, either on, or just short and right of the pond. 5h (200 yard club) and I got the baby draw, but it was absolutely pure.  Came up to the green and noticed the pond protected the entire green, not just the middle/left.  But I carried the green, ball checked up just 5 feet past the ball mark.  (Long putt for eagle - of course I left that short.  good birdie). (empty course, I went back and tried my 3h - same result, just ball unded up long and just past the fringe, but greenside.  Apparently I was destined to finally hit a good shot on this hole.  I took out 3 holes that previously were problem holes.  good day - these of the season has been killing problem holes.)
    • 2 really solid shots from my round yesterday. First was a 190 yd par 3, flag tucked about 8 or 9 feet off the right edge of the green. I aimed right at the center of the green, absolutely flushed a 6 iron as good as I've ever hit a 6 iron, pushed it a little bit, ended up exactly pin high 6 feet to the right of the flag, had less than a foot of roll from its' ball mark. Sunk the putt for a birdie.   Second was an approach shot to a par 5. I had 245 left, and was a couple feet off the edge of the fairway and had some really low overhanging tree branches about 20 feet in front of me and a pond that intersected the fairway about 30 yds further up. The rough wasn't bad at all so I had a clean look at the ball, so the plan was to hit a punch 3 iron under the tree branches and let it roll up hoping it would go like 150-200 yds or so. Moved the ball back in my stance, kept weight and hands forward, gave it a solid swing and watched the ball start out under the tree branches then as soon as it cleared the branches it started to rise and ended up landing just short of the green and rolled through the green to the back fringe. I was shocked that it managed to go that far. The ball flight looked like one of those "stinger" videos that people post on social media, it was really cool to see (even if it was somewhat unintentional)
    • The opposite is far more true. It's much, much easier to accept losing by blow-out than to accept losing on the last hole. In the former, you just didn't have it, you accept your fate earlier on, you were clearly outmatched, etc. In the latter… you had every chance to win and still couldn't get it done.
    • I’m scratch and I still 3 putt once a round. GIR is king, then its nGIR. One thing I noticed with some of my students is they don’t even know what lines to take the ball off the tee. Play to the safer side of the landing area. Don’t try to actively avoid rough. It’s not usually long enough to where it’ll hurt you.
