Welcome to the "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge for 2018! Please read as the rules have changed! Yes, for all of 2018! I'm changing it up. Rather than do this monthly, we're going to hav

Day 1 Finally back doing the golf thing. Without going into a lot of detail, I lost strength in the legs for almost any activity, including standing and balance. After impressive work done by my

Day 9 December 12th.   Loaded my phone with a metronome app in preparation for using it as I practice chipping/short pitches.  Then went to the range and worked for a little over two hours... on the same things, more rotation on the backswing, with more wrist cock, staying in posture, and having a more complete finish... I tend to stop rotating my chest so I short arm the finish... well my term for it.  Used the Swingwyde as a helpful feedback tool.  Then blasted out 25 drives to finish up... preparing for the new year challenge :-)

Day 10 December 13   My body is finally healthy enough to get back on the plan!!  I am determined to finish the Tour 25 Blueprint Challenge from the book, "How to Train for Golf like an Olympian."  Last month I had to abandon the plan due to pinched nerve in my mid-back.  Now I am ready to start again!!  Today I did various technical swing drills, motion drills and club awareness drills... which amounted to 18 drills -- hitting 8 balls with each drill.  In between drills I worked with the Swingwde and hit 3 balls.  For a total of 198 balls over a three plus hour period.  So this is DAY 1 of the Tour 25BluePrint Challenge.

Now to work on my mental skills activities!! Meditation, "Greatest Hits Journal" and some pre-round visualizations for a round this coming Wednesday.

DAY 11 December 14    Monday's are my off days from practice -- except for putting down a 3 foot ruler in my office and some work on my swing in the garage.  I hit 50 putts down the ruler... had 2 roll off before making to the end.  Work on this continues until I can make 50 in a row, then graduate to an even more narrow ruler.. AKA the Harold Swash Rail.

In addition to working on my putting skills, I spent an hour plus on a Zoom call focused on the mental side of the game.  I do at last three of these hour long plus calls each month, plus homework and reading and an online course.  Trying to help my mental game catch up... so I am firing on on all cylinders.

Day 366

Warmed up hitting some 7-irons into my net. Worked on tempo today, since I feel like I am starting to rush transition a bit. Did a superspeed workout, and then hit a few more 7-irons.

Day 63: It’s 30F out with a 15 mph NWN wind. I’m from New England so I’m thinking shorts weather!😜 Actually went to the range to work with a set of Edel wedges I picked up, 52, 56 and 60. I’ve been playing 50, 54, 58, but my Titleist PW is 47. I wanted the gaps to be better and wanted to have a 56 sand wedge. They feel pretty much the same and launch just a tad higher. I was able to work on partial shots and short to long chips and pitches. This range has a short game area you can hit into from the mats.

Later I did SuperSpeed work and used the 60 in the backyard. Practicing my lob shots so I can finally catch one!

Day 12 December 15th..  Second day of the Tour 25 Blueprint Challenge

Spent an hour on the putting green divided between putts less than 5 feet and those over 30.

Spent an hour around the chipping green working on turning through the ball, turf-club interaction and rhythm.

Spent 3 1/2 hours on the range working through 21 drills which focus on Club Awareness and Motion (the motion of your swing).. in between each drill I hit a 3-wood that had the Swingwyde connected to it.  I hit 231 balls and lots of practice swings.  Then finished off with 30 wedge shots to 50 and 75 yard targets, and then a pin at 60yards.

    • 99% of the time when I'm playing my home club, I'm walking and carrying, so don't drink alcohol (too bothersome to walk with it).  But when I'm on vacation or on a golf trip/round with buds, we're almost always on carts, and I'll get a beer or two throughout the round at least half the time.  I don't order cocktails on the course, though...like to keep it light. I've never noticed it affecting me negatively, but I'm convinced it helps me from time to time.  When I'm not playing my best, it's usually my flaw of getting a little fast with my hands and out of tempo.  A beer or two seems to help slow me down.  In FL a few years ago, I was playing at a resort with my son and just kinda grinding through the round, but not scoring.  At the turn I got a couple of fairly light local summer brews to take along, then birdied 10, 11, and 13 (nearly an ace!).  Playing on HHI a couple of weeks ago I was in the same scenario--hitting it pretty decent but just grinding and not making birdies.  Tried the beer method.  Sadly, this time--no difference at all.    One thing I NEVER do anymore is drink caffeine before a round (no coffee if my round is morning or early afternoon, or just my morning coffee and nothing else if my round is late afternoon).  I can absolutely see its impact on my game--really struggling with rushing the hands and keeping a smooth tempo...full swing, putting, everything.  Heck, on caffeine, I notice I talk faster than normal (saying a lot), and am a little jumpy.  So if I'm gonna do drugs (the legal ones) before golf, it's gonna be the one that slows me down.  
    • Day 108 (7/23/21) - Aggravated my Tennis elbow yesterday to will be taking it easy for the next few days. Since my low point control has been poor lately, I worked on set up positions with my 7-wood and 7-iron, taking short swings focused on getting my low point in front of the ball.
