"5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge

Recommended Posts

Day 6: I had range time today. I focused on my priority piece. I got a bucket of 40 balls. Hit 30 of them with my 6 iron. Slow rehearsals before each swing. At the end I hit 10 with the driver. It took me a little more than an hour to hit the 40 balls. And it was probably less then 10 minutes to hit the last 10 with the driver. 
I didn't take any video. So, I REALLY need to do that in my garage. 

Tomorrow, more mirror work.

Day 66 (12/28/21) - Since it was warm-ish today, I worked on making a partial (about 7:30) shot with my 49* UW.

Started by warming/loosening up with the "Shaft across shoulders" drill from Day 2 of the 30-day practice plan. Then hit 15 shots (Almostgolf balls) being intentional on each shot (stood behind the ball to identify target, take a practice swing and go) with took about 20 minutes. With the exception of the first shot, I got a good trajectory with a slight draw and the balls landed in the pretty good cluster (about a 10 foot circle) with a center at about 28 yards.

Day 58, December 28, 2021

Filmed a video so that I could do the below stuff on Instagram/Twitter, and then hit balls at a slightly faster pace, including three at maybe 75% at the end. Feeling pretty decent about things.

Day 21 (28 Dec 21) - Kept the drills going on the grip, today using the wedges.  Also wrapped up the session with some pitch drills and “wedge putting” by blading the balls into the cup.  Love the latter part as it  uses the putter stroke and forces a “centered” strike in the ball.

Day 7: I have plans for more practice later on today. Hopefully I'll find a spot to do some filming. 

However, first thing this morning I worked on putting bead by rolling balls down a 48 inch metal ruler. I was able to get 12 of 13 all the way down the ruler without them slipping off the sides.

Day 22 (29 Dec 21) - Played 18 today.  Worked on keeping the grip strengthened through out the round.  Saw much better ball flight - both in distance and predictability.

Day 8 - Did my mirror work already. Working on my priority piece. It's starting to "feel" more natural. Now I really need to get some film on it. I did hit a few balls yesterday in the garage. But I didn't really work on anything other than set-up. I was just testing out the set up. The garage set up and my set up.

I also did 5 minutes of putting practice this morning. I did "Day 15" of the COVID-19 practice challenge.

Day 25. 12/30/2021

30 day Covid-19 practice plan day 24 (trail arm pitching)

nice awareness drills again. As soon as I reintroduced the left hand I started blading again.  Back to the right hand only to get the feel and replicating the feel when adding left hand results were as wanted. Good drill to keep in the quiver.

Day 152:

Break in the rain for the next four days, so jumped at the chance to play 18 this morning, in likely my last round of 2021. Started off with an 8 on the first hole, but put it behind me and finished with an 80 (39/41). Had two birdie putts lip out, and two chips that hit the flagstick leaving tap-in pars, so it was a bit of a "what could have been" round. Nice score to finish 2021, and looking forward to golf next year.

    • Did they blue screen in that golf course? Something just seems off to me. At first, I thought it looked like a really good video game cut scene.  I think they look very hi definition, and the background looks less so.  The physics of the golf ball look off. You can see the golf ball just start to plummet out of the air right after he hits it.   
    • I had the chance to play Southern Pines this weekend...it's REALLY good.  A solid 8/10.    
    • Played Umstead with my brother again today.  I shot 40-42 for a solid 82. The front was consistent, four bogeys and five pars. A par on the par-5 ninth was a bit disappointing since I was on the fringe in two with about a 15-footer for eagle, but it is what it is. On the back I made two doubles on 15 (jail on approach shot) and 16 (drive hooked OB) but otherwise solid: five pars and two bogeys. So I was able to keep huge numbers off the card for the most part. It was a fun day. My brother also reached a milestone today: he went 46-43 for 89 and broke 90 for the first time! He only had one really bad hole (tripled 5), and a birdie on 10 jumpstarted him. It was fun to watch! I’m playing Hillandale with a buddy tomorrow morning, so stay tuned! 
    • I just sent these into Evolvr, so I'm not asking for comment, so much as using this thread as a swing diary whenever I remember to do so.   and
