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 67.  Played in a club tournament.  Shot an 83 (no birdies, nine pars).  Three double bogeys:  a GIR + 4 putts, plus two three-putts after missing greens (one from sand, one from a short sided pitc

Day 46 (5/20/21) - Range work today with a small bucket. As a warmup, I did the "Ladder Drill" with my SW; 5 balls starting with A2-A8 (about 20-yards) then gradually increasing to A3-A9 (about 50-yards) incrementally increasing the distance. For the remainder of the bucket, I did the "Pre-Set Drill" 7-iron thru UW, then 6H and 5H. I was able to repeat solid impact with a slight draw on most shots. This is a great drill!

Day 133 (20 May 21) - Forgot to post yesterday, my bad (wedge work in the backyard, working the 54* wedge to specific distances)......Picked back up today with a round at the local course.  Work today was on mixing the clubs up, i.e. not doing what I always do but rather hitting different clubs into the greens.  As I was alone and no one was behind I could focus on course management - what the lie presented, what obstacles to overcome and where I wanted to ball to land.  All that work on chips/pitches in the yard with the 54* wedge paid off as I was able to equate what I saw to known distances in my yard.

Day 509 - May 20, 2021

A bunch of short game work with the new Edel wedges (I'm using one of the fitting cart ones). The V Grind is the closest replacement to the old DVR grind. It's okay.

I may change up from the C-Taper shafts, though.

Day 220: Range work. Gathered more MEVO data with most clubs. It’s having trouble with the 3 and 5W. Maybe it has something to do with launch angle? Then I went to another course and worked on short game and sand.

Day 521:

Did some camera work indoors to reinforce backswing piece. Worked with 7-iron and 3W to get the concept working for longer clubs too. Went outside with camera and worked on downswing priority piece.

Day 134 (21 May 21) - Easy day today as the left foot is feeling the walk from yesterday.   Used the 7i as a spreader bar between the hands to keep the trail arm from over collapsing and getting the stretch in sides.  Recalled the drill from the Covid practice plan of making sure the trail elbow stays >90* in then bend.  Several sets of reps of this in front of the mirror.  Now to rest the foot some more and watch the pros battle the Atlantic breezes at Kiawah....

Day 510 - May 21, 2021

Short game work/demonstration during a playing lesson. I hit one 50° wedge to about 15 feet, though, with the only "full" swing I made for the day.

Day 522:

Did a little bit of backswing practice continuing to reinforce the priority piece of not taking club and hands inside. Compared video from my last lesson with some video from today. Feel is that hands are going out and away from me but I need still need to work on keeping shoulders turning. I’d give myself a B so far. Did some downswing work with foam balls, working on clubface control to get my desired start line.

Day 87.   Yes, I got to hit (foam) balls, indoors, off a mat, into a net, after doing the wall drill (both near a wall and on the mat).  There were about a half dozen balls hit, each of which followed wall drill, then wall drill on the mat, then practice swing movement, and lastly actually swinging at the ball.

Day 135 (22 May 21) - Pitch drills w/the PW in the yard today, focusing on alignment to the flag, landing the ball close enough to release and finish near the flag.  Had a number finish too close and roll past. Then used PW to “blade” putt the balls to the hole.  The latter spurred by a recent thread about participating in a 4 club tourney.

Day 523:

More reinforcement of backswing priority piece with camera. Did it with driver today, to make sure everything carries over to longest club with slightly different setup to ball. Then went outside and hit some foam balls, working on clubface control, also with camera.

Day 49 (5/23/21) - Block practice on Finess Wedge shots (basically a pitching motion) in my yard with a 60* wedge. Currently I don't carry anything more lofted than a 56* wedge when playing, but I like to practice with a lob wedge as I can see the utility of playing one in the future....when I can use it properly.
