"5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge

Day 156:

Played 18 this morning. Solid ballstriking from holes 5-14 where I was +1 for that stretch, but before and after that was pretty rough. Not my home course, and the greens on this course can probably fit 2 or 3 or even 4 of the greens from my home course, and they have sever undulation and they’re like glass, so putting was quite an adventure.

Day 65, January 4, 2022

Worked on GEARS today. I'll make a post later tonight in my Member Swing topic. Pretty happy with a lot of what I worked on.

I wish GEARS didn't upload the deleted swings to the Web Locker.

Day 436: Range today. Started with some feel work WRT my priority pieces. The feel during transition is flattening along with right elbow driving down (maintaining >90 degrees) as my hips start the downswing and my left foot pushing my left hip back. Did these slowly at first with PW, 7 iron then driver. 

Moved on to SuperSpeed training using a Fit for Golf protocol. Hit a pretty high driver speed, 101, which surprised me as I haven’t done speed work for a while.

Moved on to distance wedge work then finished with short game shots to targets. I was under an enclosure when the rain came and wind shifted. So I also worked on flighting the wedges down.

Day 14, 1/5/2022.

I spent a little under an hour in the garage today hitting balls. Mostly 6 irons. But I also hit a half dozen 8-iron shots. a half dozen fairway wood shots and a half dozen hybrid shots. Just working on my priority piece. I was kind of enjoying myself and I almost forgot to take some video. So, I grabbed a video of my swing at with a 6 iron at the end of the session. I haven't looked at it yet.  

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Day 74 (01/05/22) - Did Day 6 - Basic Chipping inside today, focusing on setup and did the "dime" drill. As I hit the back dime more often than not, this drill will get quite a lot of focus this off-season.

Day 29 (05 Jan 2021) - Got outside today before the rain started back and worked with the 58deg wedge.  The goal of today was to "accurately" place the shots in the target zone, using good form (no flippy wrist stuff to help the ball).  Worked on getting the wedge to bounce lightly and trust the club to launch the ball.   Thanks to the warmer weather, I could use the three "holes" in the backyard - they are roughly 20 - 25 yards apart, so for me these are a good distance to work the lob wedge.  Thanks to my grandson each hole has a name - there the "flag hole" as it has an old bicycle flat on the stick, there is the trashcan hole as it is near the trashcan (duh?) and finally there is the garage door hole that is in front of the garage door.  When hitting from the garage hole area, you can easily set it up to where you have to hit over the corner of the shop.  This is actually the most fun as you have to go over the eave, miss the shrubs and then get the ball to land and check up before rolling off to the fence.  Also I mix up the ball placement - no two shots are from the same spot so each shot is a little different.  Today, I finished up the drill with 4 of the 5 balls within my 6' circle of fame (see photos).

Day 66, January 5, 2022

Worked on the backswing at maybe 80% speed today before lessons. The 100% swings from GEARS were encouragingly good.

Day 1: Did some mirror work. Working on my set up - trying to get the hips more over my heels. I’m too far back now. Mirror helped me see that a little better.

Day 15. 1/6/2022

Did my putting drills first thing this morning. Usually I like to stretch and first and get my mirror work in. But today I started by rolling 6 footers down a string line. Then I did the gate drill from day 15 of the Covid practice challenge. 

I've noticed my putting miss tends to be a pull. So, I'm going to have to keep an eye on that.

Day 75 (01/06/22) - Nice enough to practice outside today so I worked for abut 10 minutes on setup with the driver, followed by chips with my 58*. Regarding the latter, it was a good way to follow-up on yesterday's indoor practice with the "dime" drill. I chipped 3 sets of 8 balls each (i) somewhat down hill, (ii) somewhat uphill and (iii) relatively level. For the first two sets, I paid attention to distance and specifically, how much longer swing it took to go the same distance uphill that I went downhill. Had pretty tight dispersion for each set.

Day 32.  1/06/2022

Spent some time today trying to feel the inside out swing with driver. Small swings at first before adding speed and also trying to feel an upward aoa.

Also repeated day 07 (basic pitching) of 30 day Covid-19 practice plan.

Under construction, signature and game.

Day 437: Had a ‘procedure’ today so no full swing practice. I did work on gripping with the club on the ground after seeing this post.

    • At $25… And $5 for all bets, I'd do it like this… And we'll just assume that we have 22 with @dennyjones just adding to skins if he can play. 22 players is 11 teams… so… Skins $110/(# of skins) [$110 = 22 * $5] Nassau (Teams) $110 * 3 (FBT) but divided up this way: $20 / $20 / $70 $10 / $10 / $60 -- / -- / $50 -- / -- / $40 -- / -- / $30 -- / -- / $20 CTP $22 each. Or $23 if @dennyjones is in. That's just off the top of my head. Feel free to make changes, offer suggestions, etc. I tried to distribute $330 fairly. If you win the front or the back, it seems likely you might win the overall. But even if you sweep, that's $110, which is 1/3 of the pot, which kinda feels fair, too. Maybe?
    • Yes.  We did best points net two- man teams, but only overall IIRC at Beaver Creek. 80% handicap. And top three individual nets got a little something.  Yes, that's it. The three individual competitions - front, back and overall are great for big groups.  The $25 set up sounds like a winner as long as no one has a strong aversion to it. 
    • Day 4: Did my usual slow motion swings. Still working on being lateral with the hips and not letting my hips come towards the ball or get to far behind me.    Also started to work on some putting. Just swinging from coin to coin. New concept as I always tried to accelerate through the putt. Probably why I sucked at lag putting. 
    • You could take it a step farther and… write it down, and then tape it to your shaft beneath your grip. Like… this: Chapter 7, Page 37.
    • “Don’t hit 80 yards. Swing 9 o’clock” - is what my golf coach told me, when I was choosing between my wedges (PW, GP, …). Now I have a printed card where I write the average distance of every wedge that I hit with a 9 o’clock backswing motion. Before: When my distance to the green was around 40 to 120 yards, I would choose the club that would go that distance with either a full swing or a ‘not full swing’. I thought I had a good feeling for the distance and I’d swing according to that distance (sometimes a full swing with a 60 degree lob wedge to reach 100 to 110 yards). After: Now I know how far each wedge goes with a nine o’clock backswing and I systematically dial it up or down by increments of e.g. 5 degrees depending on the distance. Outcome: - My distance control has significantly improved: I am rarely short or long over the green - GIR percentage improved - Consequently, my putting percentage improved. I rarely have three putts thanks to the proximity of my shots near the pin - Now I rarely do a full swing with my wedges; that helps with more consistent shots and has the benefit of less air-time / wind impact For example: Before I would full swing my GW for 120 yard shots and now I go a club up and use my PW with a relaxed 9 o’clock shot to more accurately reach that distance.
