"5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge

Day 15 (25 Dec 21) - after the gifts (several books on golf) worked with the new trinket - an electronic putting cup.  Used it to work on keeping the head in place till it went in (and sprung back) from 3 thru 10 feet.  What I like about it, you miss the “hole lines” it will literally lip around.  Likewise if you are on target you get the pleasure of the ball kicking back to you.  After some time with it, went outside and worked on keeping the head centered while hitting pitches with the 50 and 58.

Day 3: 

Spent 5 minutes (12 balls) rolling straight 6 foot putts. Putting to a hole that is 2-3/16" in diameter. I made 6 out of 12.

Then 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. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Day 19 (misstated the Day # for yesterday , should’ve been day 18) (26 Dec 21) - worked on grip position today.  I tend to keep a weaker grip, so today was about strengthened grip.  Followed it with 3/4 swings with the 7i.  Using the hard foam balls to get good controlled flight.

Day 148:

Played 18 this morning. Started off with clear skies, beautiful day, but very cold. Shot 39 on the front 9. Then the rain started, and heavy stuff started around the 14th hole, soaking the greens and basically making it pointless to putt. Finished with a 43 on the back 9, but that was without putting on 14-18 (counted 2 putts per hole).

Day 4: 
A lot of mirror work. Again, 7 iron. 
Again mirror down the line and face on.

Trying to work on my priority piece as well as the timing of my shift. 

So far I feel like an orangutan performing brain surgery with a tuning fork. 

When it starts to feel at all better I'll start hitting balls with it. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Day 5:
It's only 7AM and I've already done 5 minutes of mirror work. The plan is to get in some chipping and perhaps hit some balls down the range focusing on my priority piece.

Day 65 (12/27/21) - Took Christmas Day and the next day off due to family commitments; back at it today.

Worked on 3', 4' and 5' putts with my PuttOUT mat setup (now includes the mirror and gate) focusing on setup, ball position, line and speed. 

Merry Christmas!

Day 57, December 27, 2021

Gave some GEARS lessons for about six hours today. Worked on the backswing and transition for about 12 minutes afterward and before going to Five Guys, where a bacon cheeseburger now costs $11.89. Preposterous.

Day 149:

More rain, so continued indoor practice on hip priority piece and some grip work. Storms supposed to be moving on after today, and I think Mevo+ is arriving tomorrow, so really looking forward to some outdoor full swing work.

    • I would like to understand this rule. Rule 19.2(a) says that player is entitled to stroke and distance, even if original ball not found and identified. But relief under 19.2(b) an (c) says that ball must be identified to obtain reference point. I thought that’s why Faldo had to take stroke and distance in the 1992 US Open; everyone knew ball was in an identified tree but he could not identify the original ball. So in Reed’s case, how is that he did not have to “positively identify” his ball?  
    • Right now I don't bag a 3 wood. I'd happily add a G430 3 wood because I am pretty sure I could reliably launch it.
