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.

They're the same concepts. The LPGA has some pretty bad stats keeping, too, so I apologize but there's not a lot out there that's "good" to use.

But the same concepts apply - hit the greens, putting is the skill you're closest to an LPGA Tour player at, distance matters, etc.

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 462 - April 4, 2021 Played 18 holes with @Hardspoon and then a nine-hole scramble with @NatalieB. Shot 30 on the latter nine, and around par with the first 18. I haven't gone through the roun

25 reps. Stretching hamstrings. Working on slow movements through transition. Tai Chi slow with weight shift incorporated into movement.

Range work went pretty well yesterday afternoon. Used Mevo and other than the carry distances being all over the map possibly due to really bad ball striking. More or less the same kind of strikes I did on my 80 par 70 round yesterday (http://www.gamegolf.com/player/lihu/round/1985690) Used A Pro-V1 circa 2014. 

Turns out the Tai Chi swings I do in the morning get decent distances, but my lack of focus when I relax too much really cause me to strike pretty poorly.

Also noticed that to hit my maximum distances I really need to be on top of everything. Going to work on a little pre shot routine again instead of just swing-swing-hit.

Note that these are Srixon range balls 1pc range balls with approximately 6% reduction in initial velocity due to compression and other effects done by Srixon.

19/1/18 - Takeaway and knee flex work with the mirror, then trying to start feeling like the hands come straight down rather than out in transition.

Day 19

Driving range today. 80+/-  balls. Worked with all clubs, 90% full swings. Took about 2.5 hours. I had nothing else to do that was pressing. 

Focused on address position, alignment, ball in stance, and posture. Used the range flags as landing areas to check on my accuracy. Was especially pleased with my driver swing. 

Turf was a bit on the wet side, which I attribute to the dozen or so fatties I hit. The rest were playable.

Day 294.

Continued work with my path drill with the soda bottles today. Today was 10 minutes of the wedge version of this drill. I used my 54° for 9 to 3 swings, with the focus of not hitting the bottles. It took a few swings to not hitting the outside bottle, but I was literally just nicking it. So seven or eight solid minutes of nice swings.

Thanks, I will apply the concepts and improve my game!  It's just discouraging to hear you guys talk about your drive distances when mine is about 160-170.  :-(

Day Four - before we played today, I tried the six-footer challenge.  I didn't film it, and didn't succeed... I'll work on it again and at least provide the stats.

Day 19

Ten minutes putting doing the steel ruler drill. First time to try this;I found it very effective.

i got to hit the Callaway Rogue today. I was swinging poorly and could not find the middle of the club face.On the monitor however, I was getting near my usual distance. Hitting it hooky though. I plan to go back and try  warming up with my own driver. I like the look and it feels light.. The Epic never really cranked my tractor but the Rogue just might

20/1/18 - Got another evolvr response from Preston, just clarifying a few things with the knee flex work and getting me to create more width in the takeaway. Spent 20 minutes on mirror work this evening after a short attempt at the range trying to work on it earlier - just too cold for much longer! Also did a bit of work on the putting on the mat in the basement as well

I did my path drill with the soda bottles today. I went back to a longer club (a 6-iron) and did the draw path drill. (I have balls I can hit indoors, don't worry). Just to make sure that feeling is ingrained. Then again feel ain't real. So I guess it was more to make sure the motions are still there. 

295 days in a row. 70 to a year.

Day 20

Played 9 holes today. A little 2800 yard course. Worked on whatever the the shot/putt required in wet conditions. More mental, adjustment stuff than physical swing stuff. 

More metal woods than irons to get to the green to avoid fat shots, due to wer turf.  

I was able to work on  my AW flop shot. With the wet greens, I used it to hit flop shots that dropped and stop near the pin. . 

Once on the green, I needed to focus on getting extra speed on the ball due to moist, slower  greens than I am use to.  Going to play 9 more as soon as this latest drizzle passes over.

The spent an hour plus on the putting green making 100 putts from 3 feet, then 100 from 6 feet --as part of the 10,000 putt challenge.  Followed by a two hour range session working on turning into my right hip on the backswing and staying in posture through the swing.

1/20 - hey guys! It's been a couple of months since I've held a club, but the weather was awesome today so I went to the range. Hit great! It was a challenge with all my swig thoughts (centered turn, low point control, forward weight shift, etc). Hopefully the temperatures will start heading in right directions soon. 

I look forward to re-starting the daily challenge next month.

    • This is probably the most problematic statement. 🤣
    • I have known people, and I have known statistics, where people survive a really nasty car accident without wearing a seatbelt. But they are a very, very, very small percentage.
    • What facts do you have to support this. There are people who are not fine. Don't judge what your outcome will be just because you only see the immediate people around you are fine.  My aunt was close to being put on a ventilator, she was hospitalized. Yes she is OK now, but she was lucky.  You are willing to accept the risk of being a carrier of the virus? You accept the possible harm you will cause to people around you? How selfish and cruel of you. 
    • 1.  True.  Ignorance is the lack of understanding.  I agree with you. 2.  You think it is stupid to not get it.  I'm ok with that.  I think it is a waste of my time.  I have known people to get COVID.  They are fine.  And yes, I know everybody is different on the reaction.  I'm willing to accept the risk.  And yes, if I wasn't feeling pressure, I would not get it.  So maybe I shouldn't be so general.  You are correct, I don't respect the opinion of deplorable people.  As long as it is not deplorable/against any kind of law. We all have different opinions.  It really is ok.  No reason to get all up in arms about it.
    • 1) Everyone is ignorant, since ignorance is the lack of knowledge. I am 100% ignorant in how viruses work. I know a small bit, but I don't know in detail enough to be able to speak on the subject.  2) When the facts show it is much more beneficial and safe to get the vaccine, in terms of your own health and in terms of the health of others, there is not much worth in having this difference of opinion. To me, it feels like you and others just want to be contrarian. When the facts are known to be as such, then it is expected to get some negative feedback from those who are correct in this regard. Though, it is a bit harsh to call someone uneducated and a moron. But, I think it is stupid to not get the vaccine unless you have a medical reason to do so.  Maybe not a moron, but definitely ignorant.  Also, do you respect the opinion of deplorable people? Come on, respecting everyones opinion is just not good for society. That is saying you respect the opinion of people like who commit horrible atrocities. Their opinion is they should be able to do so with out repercussions or are justified due to their religious doctrine. How can you respect that.  We are not talking about subjects like, what is the greatest football team of all time. This is about the validity of the vaccine (which it works stupidly well), and its utility for the safety of oneself and society (which is very high). These are facts. To say that I should respect the opinion of someone who doesn't believe in these facts, or has the opinion that they should disregard the vaccine. Yea, I am not respecting that opinion.  We are not talking about every discussion here. We are talking about this particular subject. So, don't try to generalize it.  Here is the thing, the facts are pretty clear here. All you have to say is, "Well, if I didn't have a family who pressured me, I wouldn't take the vaccine." That isn't a valid opinion. It is not based on anything but your gut feeling. It's like justifying that people who don't wear their seat belts are not idiots. They are 100% idiots for not wearing a seat belt. Seat belts reduce injuries and fatalities by over 55%. Not wearing a seat belt is just idiocy.  Well, the use of ignorant in this way is wrong.  You know the facts of the vaccine (I presume) since you are responding to this thread. If not, then you are ignorant since you lack the knowledge of the vaccine.  To have an opinion, not based on facts is to me idiotic.  Oh, I am 100% ignorant in many subjects. One of my college professors said the first day, "You are all ignorant people". Then he described what ignorance means. I went from almost being pissed off to thinking he's right. I am an ignorant person. I lack knowledge. I am not all knowing.
