"5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge

Recommended Posts

I spent an hour each of  the last 3 days working on ball first contact off the deck, mostly with my 7 iron but spent some time with the new Ping G425 5 wood today. A 120 ball bucket each day at the range.

Making great strides with the 5 wood, not hitting the 7 fat anymore but still working on trying to get a better release/weight shift for distance.

Day 108:

Stayed indoors today after work and did backswing practice with LVP camera. Tried mimicking the instructional droplets JEP "hands in front of the chest". I tried to make independent motions of shoulders turning while hands lift/hinge. When the lift/hinge motion with arms and hands are synced well with the shoulders, it looks like a pretty good backswing.

Day 28(11/17/21) - I've gotten to Day 28 again, so red entry tomorrow:-D!

More chipping practice today. Warmed up by swinging my Orange Whip Wedge, then hit 10 chips each with my 58* wedge, PW and 6H focusing on making an underhand motion with my right hand and keeping my right arm moving so as to engage the bounce, rather than digging the leading edge into the ground.

Day 147 (17 Nov 21) - More work on the shot sequence as I still like to straighten up too soon, topping the ball.  Kept it with short pitches with the GW in the backyard.  Working in groups of 6, started off with all in a 10' diameter from about 25yds.  By the end of the session, I would have 4 of the 6 within a 3' circle and the outliers within 10'.

Day 29 (11/18/21) - Practice swings with my driver, slowly and paying attention to my positions, followed by 9-3 drill with my sand wedge and Almostgolf balls. Regarding the latter, I am trying to shallow out my swing a bit in order to take less of a divot and lower the ball flight.

Day 148 (18 Nov 21) - Worked on hip clearing thru downswing/impact.  Used the 8i.  Tend to under rotate making shots pushes left.  Drill today had the ball starting right - landing left of target.  Will take this to the course tomorrow.

Day 110:

Got home with some daylight to practice outside hitting balls. Worked on backswing piece "toe up", also incorporating the arms lift/hinge while shoulders turn from JEP Golf Evolution video. Hit balls with 9-iron just as some light rain was starting, so only got through 10 balls, but everything feels pretty good. Still hard to trust the concept of the arms only lifting and hinging, but I'm getting there.

Day 18 - November 18, 2021

Got my five minutes in this morning before installing the GEARS the rest of the evening.

Did a lot of what I did the other day. Well, not a lot, because it was like six minutes. But you know what I mean.

Day 149 (19 Nov 21) - Played 18 today again at Minnesott - starting temp in low 50's, wind gusty.  This time I was solo and was out ahead of the Friday men's group.  As I opted to use the Tommy Armour 845s today (5i-PW, GW, SW), I wanted to maximize the playing time so "today's constraint was "only on the tee could I use the driver, fairways or hybrids", all remaining shots past the tee to the green were to be irons/wedges (all 845s Silver Scots).   So I am using late 1980's technology as these are the original Pat Pend production units.   End result - was some of the most consistent golf I've ever played. I believe it was the combination that the longer clubs were off limits, that I knew I needed to be good in realizing carry distances and how the wind was doing (at times gusty head wind, others gusty tail and then the swirls on open greens.  I plan to do this again soon - great way to work on where separation value pays the most and also to gain confidence in iron play.

Day 30 (11/19/21) - Went to the range today and practiced mostly drivers and wedge shots. It is dead into the wind so a good opportunity to work on control. I was also able to get onto holes 8 and 9 and try a new technique on several sand shots and pitch and runs which I messed up during the season.

    • I know it's cold but couldn't quiet believe that a 4 iron didn't travel 214 yards. Seemed like it was well struck too. Anyway, I went away for a couple of hours and seems like the bottom has given out. 🥴
    • I don’t know if the course was the issue. If he’s swinging with pain, it doesn’t help that the walk is easy.
    • RRR is on Netflix - eagle - and one of best action movies I’ve seen in awhile. It’s dubbed in Hindi no option for Tegulu, so the lip syncing is off. But the 3 hours will fly by like nothing. Amazing set pieces action and dancing. 
    • I think i'd rather have to deal with #2.   Because i think you could find ways to compensate for not being able to fully load up on your trail foot/leg, by lifting weights, lighter driver shaft, and such..  if you loose the ability to put weight on your front leg, you are really limiting what you can do with your swing or trying to make certain shots..        And I've seen plenty of videos on youtube, with instructors doing one leg swing drills, and you are always using your front leg..    
    • That’s what I thought, too, but I deferred to the announcer on that.
