More practice swing accelerating at or after A6 to see if I can get a whip in a methodical fashion rather than so "random". Getting more whip by slowing down the transition.

20 reps. Stretching hamstrings. Working on slow movements through transition. Almost Tai Chi slow. SS radar shows about the same speed near where impact would be.

Welcome to the "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge for 2018! Please read as the rules have changed! Yes, for all of 2018! I'm changing it up. Rather than do this monthly, we're going to hav

Day 16

Once again posting for yesterday's practice. I did do the practice consecutively; last night was day 16.

15 minutes of putting practice from 3-6 feet. I am getting where I want to be. I am however beginning to understand the need for varying practice, as it is easy for me to lose focus doing the same thing. I am learning to be consistent in stroke and follow through, to focus on start line, to see the path I want the ball to take.

Yesterday was snow, and today sunshine and 10 degrees. Looking forward to getting some outside practice in this weekend, with temps hopefully above 40.

Day 17. Raining.

Indoor putting was the drill today. Rolling the ball over a dime, spotted a foot, or so in front of the ball. 

The dime represents an intermediate target on my chosen line of the putt. Rolling the ball over the dime means I am hitting my line. 

On the course, my chosen line (read) might be wrong, but that's another drill.

1/17/18:

Started work with my wedge path drill with the soda bottles today. Started with short swings with my 54°. About 25 reps of this with the waist high to waist high swing. It took about 10 or so swings to miss the bottles due to there being 4 of them instead of the recent 2 (inside-out path vs straight path). It will take some getting used to having a 4" wide by 12" long rectangle of bottles of 4 soda bottles to swing through, but it's slow and specific. So I got that going for me.

Day 292.

17/1/18 - 5 minutes more on static mirror work, still going for the knee flex and consequential tidying up of wrist angles at the top and 5 minutes putting on the mat with the template, focusing more on face rotation today.

Jan 17 - I’m a day early,  but I finally started swing a club again. It’s been 6 weeks since my hernia surgery and 10 since the knee surgery.

Today, slow mirror swings at the gym hitting a rubber tee. I focused on what I was working on with my Evolvr instructor, getting my hips to keep rotating from A4 to A8. They were stalling a bit and it was causing a flip.

The feel was pulling my left hip back and up. I won’t hit real balls for a few more weeks, so mirror swings will have to suffice. I will work with foam balls once my PT clears me.

Played a round today on my short course for the first time in 3 weeks. The only thing I was doing was this challenge a few range visits, and working on the swing. My short game kind of sucked, but I was really getting on the greens. My long game wasn't phenomenal or anything, but my drives put me where I wanted to be, apparently.

Forgot to mention, I birdied my nemesis hole! A narrow 548 yard par 5 (Brookside Course 2 hole 11) that's so narrow and a tree right in the middle of it. Barely screamed past the tree on the right, but hey, it counts! :banana:

January 17  Day 17    Practiced putting for 10 minutes working on starting the ball on line.  Then played 9 holes at Juliette Falls.  I shot two over par 38 which is not too bad considering the weather was in the low 50s.. and windy.. hitting 7 GIR (78%).  My Goal for 2018 is to average 70+% GIR so I was happy!!  Indoor work for the next two days as it will be very cold -- for Florida.

Day 2 (yesterday) - I got a new club so before my round yesterday, I hit 1/2 bucket of balls, just seeing how it feels and how far and which direction it goes and so on.  I like it! It

Continued work with my wedge path drill with the soda bottles today. Started with short swings with my 60°. About 15 minutes of this with the waist high to waist high swing. It took about 5 or so swings to miss the bottles.

Day 18. 

Spent about 30 minutes in a Golf Galaxy today. Hit some putts with different putters. Also hit pitches into a net area. 

Basically just putting practice, and 1/2 swing wedge swing practice. 

Nice store, but left disappointed.

18/1/18 - more time on the knee flex work in mirror. Probably only managed 10 minutes or so - waiting on the evolvr response before I properly go at it and make sure I'm nailing it, but the main piece is improving

Day Three - I didn't pick up a club, but I read several chapters of Lowest Score Wins... a lot of it seems over my head because of my level of golf and because I can't relate to the numbers (no average women's stats or even LPGA), but I can surely use the concepts to help create my own plan for improvement.

    • Hit the 9 wood on a 186 yard par three, hang time was incredibly long. It finally landed and only bounced about 6' forward. I was 20' to the right of the pin. Lipped out the bird, easy par. I think I like this.
    • Shot 86 on a 6000 yard par 72 yesterday. After a mixed start, I'm very happy with the last 10 holes. 3 O.B. tee-shots and a tee-shot that found a bush 3 yards right of the fairway is responsible for +8 of the score and a couple of bad approach shots on the front +3-4 more. Hit 2 of the first 6 and 6 of the last 10 greens and made no 3-putts on very slow and bumpy greens (33 putts total). Hit my short irons really well from the short stuff (hit all the greens from 150 and in from fairway/semi), but struggled a bit from thick rough and with my longer irons.  Finished the round with a nice birdie on 18, a 310 yard dogleg right par 4 playing a little uphill into the wind. Hit my drive well and it ran through the fairway a couple of yards into the left rough, and left me with 50 yards to the pin. Piched a smooth AW to 7 feet an sunk the putt.  Shot of the day came on hole 11, a short, downhill (10 yards), 275 yards par 4 with a false front (uphill the last 30 yards). Hit a perfect 4 wood directly at the flag and it landed 2 yards short of the green (268y), jumped a yard back because of very soft conditions and left me with 8 yards left to the pin. Made the up and down for a nice birdie there as well.     
    • Well how well did he hit the 2-iron?
    • I had my first shot of the AZ a few weeks ago. I felt a fever coming on about 12 hours later, and spent about a day and half feeling like the poo.  After that it was pretty smooth sailing.     Of course, now Canada is looking to be in short supply of follow up shots with that vaccine, and the Pfizer became readily available about a week later.  That's my luck, but I'm glad that i at least have one shot so far.  
    • Day 80.  Today is a bit of a cop-out, and I debated not posting it and taking the miss.  I gave blood this afternoon and hadn't practiced by that point, so I just did more wall drill rather than swinging a club after giving blood.  I'm not sure swinging a club would have been a bad idea, but I figured I need to ingrain this turn more anyway, so...
