"5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge

Day 54 (12/14/21) - Nice day, so chipping practice in the yard. Fifteen balls each with my 58* SW (high), 44* PW (low) and 6H (bump and run) focusing on making good contact, proper setup and form, and varying the carry distance. 

I'm planning to work on these shots around the putting green in the next day or two as the whole week is expected to be god weather.

Day 7 (14 Dec 21) - played 18 at Minnesott today.  Big, big focus on iron play, had the 845s Silver Scots incl the 3i along with my older Vokey wedges (can we say non-groove compliant on irons and wedges).  One of the better days striking the irons as I love the feedback these steel shafted clubs provide over the graphite shafted SLDR irons and Cleveland CBX wedges.

Day 136:

Continued working on cupped wrist backswing feel, doing rehearsals indoors with LVP camera as digital mirror. Later hit some balls in the dark (really need to figure out getting practice in during daylight), working on transition move. Did a lot of slow rehearsals and practice swings before each ball. Start line is getting more consistently online, and launch angle looks good, but strikes aren't always clean, tend to be a touch fat and toward the toe.

Day 414: Fit for Golf workout and some work on the transition inside. Working on the feel of landing on the left side and rotating the hips before the arms. They both really move together, but the feel of hips first seems to help my sequence better.

Day 55 (12/15/21) - Hit shots with my 53* wedge using AlmostGolf balls in my yard today, using a motion which should have resulted in 55-60 yard carry with real golf balls (as a data point the AlmostGolf balls flew 25-30 yards). I am trying to shallow my swing such that I take very little divot and keep the trajectory down, hitting a draw. During the next couple of weeks, I plan to work on these shots at a local simulator and get some actual data.

Day 8 (15 Dec 21) - Mirror drills this evening- worked on swing from top of backswing to just thru impact, especially focused on getting as much rotation in the torso as possible and then slowly releasing by leading with the hips.  Easy to move fast and just blow through, hard to move slow and stay purposed.

Day 415: went to the range today. I worked on my priority pieces for a bit. After watching the video below, I also worked on ball position with everything from wedges to driver. Wedges and irons I moved forward. Driver I brought back a bit to my heel. My last MEVO + session I was hitting up on the driver 5-8 degrees, which is too much. I didn’t get any number today, but will hopefully work on it tomorrow.

    • 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.
