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 92.  I had a concerted, 20 minute practice session today that included both clubless movement, practice swings, and hitting real balls (including a few at the end at-speed).  Focus was as before (spine angle, turning around that).  Indoors, off a mat, into the net, real balls.

Day 138 (27 May 21) - Good session this morning with the 8i and the hard foam golf balls (posted link in case anyone is curious about them).  Worked on the stance, keeping head down and engaging the lower body first then the trunk then the arms then the hands and finally the club.  Started seeing consistent flight patterns, very few slices and even a few draw shapes.  Varied the lies from tight to slight fluff, from level to slight downhill to slight uphill.   At the end of the practice I took on the 5i just to see how it would translate, after a couple dozen shots I stopped when the last shot was flushed, effortless with very small draw to within 5yds of the pin target.

Day 53 (5/27/21) - Range work; small bucket hitting drivers and focusing on foot/leg work and getting my weight forward at impact using a drill which I found on Matt Fisher's "Mr. Short Game" channel. Then spent a few minutes in the practice bunker and finally hitting chips and putting out on the practice green,

Day 516 - May 27, 2021

Happy 16th anniversary to me… oy. I played three holes, but from the white tees. Hit a 5I/8I/LW on the first hole. Hit a chippy 9I to a foot on the second hole. Played the third with a pair of 4I and a few short game shots.

Lots of rehearsal swings. Really feeling the half swing length. Feeling. 🙂

Day 2- May 27, 2021

Practiced putting with the 4-8-12 drill. I’m going in with the thought of having my arms extended but relaxed.

Day 93.  Ten minutes of full swing work (spine angle at address, turning through it).  I am hitting the balls well, which either means I've incorporated the changes or I have reverted.  I hope it's the former.  Gotta do video soon to see.  Also did ten minutes of chipping, primarily quarter shots with the UW.  All of this indoors, off a mat, into a net, and with real balls.

Yesterday (forgot to post again 🤬):

2 missed posts in 4 days, so will have to go on a run to keep red. Did some work indoors on takeaway/backswing with LVP camera, and downswing work with foam balls outside, no camera, lots of rehearsals.

Day 526 (today):

Did downswing/clubface work with LVP camera outside, hitting foam balls with slow swings.

Day 139 (28 May 21) - played 18 with grandson, who's five and can play 18 holes from 150 in, and the missus (she opted to just caddy for the grandson).   Today was about keeping with the pre-shot routine, repeatable setup on feet and body, taking time to envision the ball and where I wanted it to land and then trusting the swing to deliver the shot.  Then doing the same thing on the next shot.  I even commented to the missus on one tee shot, "That went exactly where I envisioned the flight to be".  Attribute this to the basics of what is taught in LSW and thinking effective course management.

Day 94.  Went to a putting green for 30 minutes (nearby course) at lunch.  I did a 4' and 6' 12-coin drill.  4' took me 18 putts to get through, 6' took me 30.  Not great numbers, but not horrible either.  For the 6' drill, I'm happy that I don't think any of my misses came up short.  However, all my misses did not fall into the cup, so I don't like that.

Day 518 - May 29, 2021

Stack System work yesterday (got some good speeds), and some shorter swings. Did more today, slower motion, without being in a big rush. Just because I need to be shorter doesn't mean I have to be tense or quick. I think going tense/quick stresses the left thumb a bit too, so at least I'll generally be aware of it.

Day 95.  I played 18 today;  saw my friends, played golf (which is always fun), and broke 100.  I did bogey hole six, so I improved my not-home-course-composite.

Otherwise, it mostly served to make sure that tomorrow (match play qualifier) isn't my first time playing golf in 3 weeks. :-)

    • Yeah I really like that Hybrid for sure. I like that you can flatten the lie angle of the G410s. I will probably mess with a G410 5w and loft it down to near a 4w. It was a blast getting to play some golf with you this past week Matt. It has been way too long since we were able to meet up for that. I was super happy that you were able to make this trip! On another note I went to the range tonight and had very good results adding a little "throw" to the downswing. I did not hit a single ball out of the bottom of the driver. I am super happy with the results as I was hitting the ball much higher. Now I just need to repeat that. 
    • I am getting very tired of these slow starts. 6-6-5-4. 6 over before  hit the 5th tee. Doesn't matter how many I hit at the range, it always seems to take me 4 holes to loosen up and settle in......
    • Just buy one more hybrid, you hit that really good!!!  Glad to see you back at the game again. It was fun playing golf with you up in Wisconsin! 
    • I hope more and more people are figuring this stuff out, taking those CC fitting sheets to other fitters and getting fit the right way. I just don't get how someone can look at those prices and be ok with that??
    • Played 9 today.  had my best off the tee nine holes in a while. Weakened the right hand slightly so fast the right thumb feels more on top of the left thumb and less off to the side. It helped me feel like I could swing out at the ball better.
