"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.

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.

    • Slow swing speed here, so lots of headcovers: Driver - 10.5* 5W - 18* 9W - 23* 6H (5i replacement) - 27* 7H (6i replacement) - 30* The gapping from 5W to 7H is about 10 yards per club, so it works well for me.
    • I have a food dehydrator. I bought extra racks for it, too. It takes a bit of time so to me it’s not worth doing in small batches.
    • My driver is a Titleist 913D3, and beyond that my two longest clubs are the matching 4-wood, 17 degree standard bumped down to 16.25 degrees.  And then a 4i.    I used to have the 3-wood in the bag that matches the woods, but the 4-wood has a smaller head which I prefer hitting off the ground.   When it's wet/rainy conditions I swap in a hybrid and take out a 64 degree wedge that I carry for firmer conditions.   That makes the hybrid the second longest after the 4-wood.
