Day 143:

Rained all day, so only was able to do indoor stuff; backswing rehearsals focusing on hip turn priority piece, a little grip work in the mirror, and some yardstick putting drill.

Day 15 (22 Dec 21) - Rain done, skies cleared and able to get out in the backyard this afternoon.  Worked on chip & putt drill.  As I have three holes cut in the yard about 20-25 yds apart, can get decent chip shots in along with putts for “par” or better using 8i and putter.  Made this a game with the grandson - basically we are chipping par 3 holes.  Makes for good fun, and getting “birdie” the goal.  We played about 12 holes, had a number of pars and several birdies.  Makes focusing on getting ball close key as the “yard” putting relies heavily on the ball being close.

Okay, I'm back in on the 5 minutes per day challenge.

Day 1: 

Spent 5 minutes in front of a mirror. Working on my priority pieces. (And my set up piece) No ball, just a 7 iron and 2 mirrors. One down the line and one face on. 

Then spent 5 minutes (12 balls) rolling straight 6 foot putts. Putting to a hole that is 2-3/16" in diameter. I made 8 out of 12. This is my first step to sharpening my bead. ... possibly slight benefit to speed as well.

Day 63 (12/23/21) - Things started out pretty rough on today's putting session. Went back to basics of stance and ball position and mostly "righted the ship". Did the "ladder" drill (successive putts of 1' to 6') trying to both make the putt and have the ball return somewhere between the 1' and 2' hash marks. Goal is the work this to 1' to 1.5' return.

Day 16 (23 Dec 21) - Played 18 with my five yr old grandson.  Worked on just keeping the ball in the short stuff.  Was a so-so round in terms of working on game improvement but a blast with my fave golf buddy…

Day 64 (12/24/21) - My PuttOUT mirror and gate arrived yesterday! Today I hit putts using both, starting with the mirror at 3' and the gate at 2', then moved the mirror back to 6' while keeping the gate at 2'. I rolled putts cleanly through the gate until I hit 6' at which point I only got 3 out of 5 through the gate without touching the sides. As is the case with all of my putting practice, I worked on putting with a speed such that on the return, the ball stopped at about 18" (but definitely between the 1' and 2' lines).

My approach is to make all of this indoor putting work have an element of "speed" in addition to "bead".

    • Day 36 & 37 Forgot to post an update yesterday, but did practice. Worked on rotation mostly yesterday. Nothing crazy. Played today. Driver swing is back. Struck the ball well. Putted just fine. But the greens just weren't rolling nicely. Bumpy. They apparently had treated them and didn't cut them. Shot +3 this week. Will take it. 
    • +2 (38) (diff 2.9) F: 6/7 Greens: 5/9 Putts: 16 SGP:  -1.1 No really great shots except a long chip to 1ft…just no really bad ones Admittedly this was an abnormally good round for me, but my putting in general has made vast improvements over this past year thanks to @iacas suggestion to try the Blast putting device and constantly working on my pendulums, Bead & Speed.  Even though my SGP was negative, it was still good day for me! 😐

    • I’m pretty excited to review this. I liked Game Golf and I was disappointed to have to abandon it last year. Just some quick thoughts: I like the magnet back of the unit. I wonder if I can attach it to something else as I play if I didn’t want to use the belt clip for some reason. The belt clip is metal. I know people have had problems with the Game Golf one breaking because it’s plastic. It came with a cord but not an actual power adapter. It’s 5v usb so I plugged it into my Garmin charger and it worked fine. It was a bit tedious to set up my bag on the app. There’s an extensive list of clubs and manufacturers available that you have to scroll through. A search function would have been nice. I’ll share more after I actually use it to play. Curious to see what others think, as well.
    • Day 577: Played in a scramble today in comical winds. Had a lot of fun with friends I hadn’t seen since last fall. I was a little hooky at the start with the driver, but worked it out after a few holes. Made a few really nice approach shots and short game chipping was very good. Had a couple of chunky shots too.
