"5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge

Day 12 (19 Dec 21) - Soggy Sunday as it has rained most of the day.  Was able to get outside and spend some time with the 58deg and making pitches given soggy ground.  Good exercise to work on utilizing bounce to keep from digging trenches.   After about 30 min, the rain started back so I cleaned up the club and returned to the warmth of inside.

Day 140:

Attempted to play 18 this morning, but there was a 2 hour frost delay so only made it through 9 before leaving.

But I did get 2 hours of practice in before the round. Putting (mostly working on reading  break on the practice green), short game (chips and pitches), driving range (worked on backswing and transition slowly).

Day 60 (12/20/21) Putting practice; today I experimented with ball position, grip and tempo. Then worked on line and speed.

I decided to switch to arm lock putting because I am able to get a truer roll with this method. Therefore much of my indoor practice time this winter will be spent of dialing in my stance, ball position, grip, etc., before taking it to the course in the Spring.

Day 13 (20 Dec 21) - Right hand only bounce drills with the 54 and 58.  Followed up with several 5 swing groups emphasizing getting the bounce in play.  Ended the session with some chips with the 7i.  With the backyard grass longish,  not much roll happening.  Worked on low flights keeping air time to around 10-15 yds.

Day 141:

Lesson today, mostly on backswing adjustments, it was the hips' turn this time. Also small grip adjustment with position of right-hand thumb on the grip. Was hitting the ball really crisply after adjusting to the changes.

Day 50 - December 20, 2021

Ten minutes or so (maybe 8 or 9) with the takeaway, up into the backswing, and then not really caring about hitting the ball from there. Starting to feel better. Easier.

Day 14 (21 Dec 21) - Rain coming in, grandson dealing with bronchitis, so opted to do some putting in the house with the whiffle balls.  We set up a bucket "cup" and most hole setups involve hitting around obstacles.  By varying the layout, you are forced to work on proper pacing to set up for the next shot.  It is an easy drill that lets me work on lagging the ball.

Day 142:

Got in about 15 minutes of working on my hip turn priority piece before it started raining. Rain predicted every day for the next week, so looks like a lot of indoor rehearsals past Christmas (through next Tues).

Day 17. 12/22/2021

30 day Covid-19 practice plan day 16 (double stork drill)

Nice drills to exaggerate what it feels like for how the hips and side stretch work. Especially the follow through for me, I found focus on that feel works well. Not particularly for ball flight results right now, hitting inside into a net, but simply getting to that feel/position. No surprise it’s not a feel I’m accustomed to! Loving these Covid-19 practice plan drills.

    • I likely won’t be playing any golf this weekend, so I’ll go ahead and post. This was from last Saturday. One of my coworkers and I played two holes after work. We went up to the reds on the par-3 second hole (playing about 95 yards that day) and hit our shots from there. I tried to take a little off a 50 degree and thinned it over the top of the flag and over the green. Then I plopped down another ball and decided to try a full swing 54 degree. Flushed it, and I saw it take one bounce right by the pin, then disappear. We practically sprinted up to the green and sure enough, there my ball was in the cup. Not sure if this counts as a true hole in one, but it was cool to make that shot!
    • He beat world no. 1 yesterday. So where's the problem? 😊
    • Tried this today on the putting green after the round.  I was pleasantly surprised at how accurate I was with this.  Would look at the hole, let my body align itself, look down at the putter to get it aligned, then look at the hole and make the stroke.  Within 5 feet or so I could still see the putter in my peripheral vision.  Longer putts - getting to 20 - 30 feet of course I could not.  Overall distance and accuracy was much better as I consistently had the ball stopping with 18" of the hole, many of them less than 12" or less.   A great confidence builder, will be making "heads up" a part of my warm-up routine.   What caused me to think about this today - one was the recent discussion about Jordan Spieth, second was the absolute abandon my now six year old grandson has.  He just walks up to the ball and makes the stroke and it looks like he is seeing the hole and not overly worried about anything else.  
    • Sorry for the embed error....so again, would fixing the steepening in the first part of the downswing improve my ball striking? The pro was not too concerned about it because the club eventually shallowed in the lower part of the downswing. But I don't know....  
    • World #1 Sheffler is +6 - looks like he will be going home as well.
