"5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge


iacas

Recommended Posts

Damn, I missed practice yesterday, sigh.

DAY ONE - It's freezing out ("freezing" is relative, I understand), so I practiced my putting on the living room carpet.  It should be simple, no break and stripes on the carpet so I should be able to roll it straight, right?  I worked in front/side of a mirror, to check my stroke.  We are playing later today, so hopefully I will get the bead on every putt out there.  Read, Bead, Speed.

Day 21

Did some early carpet putting this morning. It's kind of cold and damp outside right now

Practiced 6'  putts to a can of tuna fish. Rolled about 20 balls to it, from various areas. I went through my set up for each ball. These are straight on, straight putts on a very level surface. I hit the can alot.

21/1/18 - Had a nice range session and second take on the setup stuff shows immediate improvements. Spent most of the range session working on width in the takeaway, with swings between ribcage-ribcage. Immediately starting to see the ball curve left, which is great news. Need to work on start line and continuing to engage that width whilst limiting the slide right in the backswing. 

Annoyingly forgot the memory card for the camera, so no video, but will try to get some footage later on this week.

Currently focusing on: Key 4 - shorter backswing.

Day 21  January 21   Worked on the range for almost 3 hours.   Using 4 drills assigned to me by my coach at the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy -- focusing on turning more into my right hip on the backswing, staying in my posture and getting onto my left side on the forward swing.  Some golf instructor once wrote it takes 60 days to see the impact of change where it is more automatic.   Long road ahead.  Then spent an hour on the putting green continuing the 10,000 putt challenge.  Today I made 100 putts from both 3 and 6 feet.

1/21/17:

More work with my path drill with the soda bottles today. I did the wedge version of the drill all four bottles instead of two. I did this drill for a solid 15 minutes today, only hit the bottles with a half-swing 3 times in 15 minutes.

Day 21

Played 9 holes today. I did not keep score;just worked on transferring things I have been focusing on to course. Driver needs more work, but I did have some success. I am working on getting the ball more forward in stance for better launch. I hit diver 6 times; maybe 1 was the way I wanted. Generally, direction was ok, but not launch.

Putting was improved.

After the 9, I worked on long putts, then on making the second putt. I did a few round the clock 3 footers- hitting putts from all sides of a hole.

35 reps. Stretching hamstrings. Working on slow movements through transition. Tai Chi slow with weight shift incorporated into movement. Also keeping the lead wrist well pronated.

Yesterday’s range session push cut a bunch of shots when I exaggerated the pronation. Made some path adjustments and straighter the shots out again. Hitting mostly straight using range balls, so I’ll see how that works out on the course. Knocked off about 10 yards in the wintertime versus last summer. Needing 1 to 2 more clubs on my approaches.

22/1/18 - 30 minutes or so filming my setup when putting, tweaking and going back again and again. Trying to get both shoulders level and it's proving tough! 

Currently focusing on: Key 4 - shorter backswing.

Day 22

Worked on my stance/address position today. I noticed in my last round of golf, I was missing my landing area more to the right than I normally do. 

What was happening was the ball was going to the right a little, but my hips were pretty square to that ball flight. The culprit was my address position was more right than what works for me. Once I started setting up a little more left, I had more accurate ball flights.

Todays drill/practice reinforced that part of my preswing set up.

More work with my path drill with the soda bottles today. Today I did some three-quarter swings with a 54° wedge. About ten to fifteen minutes of this. I only nicked a bottle twice the whole time. I probably swung the club 25 times while doing this drill.

Day 22 January 22    A full day.  Spent 2 1/2 hours on the range in the morning working on turning into my right side, and staying centered on the downswing and follow through -- using the 4 drills assigned by my coach.  Then spent 1 hour on the putting green continuing the 10,000 putt challenge. Today I made 100 2 and 4 foot putts.  Home for lunch and a meeting, then back on the range for 90 minutes continuing my drills from the morning.  Finally I got out on the course, and was 2 under par through 7 holes before the rain came.  Looking forward to another productive day tomorrow.

Range session, my instructor came by and told me the reason I’m hitting so high is I’m setup too far forward. Once I moved the ball back to middle, my ball flight was lower and more penetrating. Gained 15 yards of carry right away. Committed to going to my next lesson on Wednesday. Why did I waste so much time doing this? :doh:I’m going to my weekly lessons again. Just one month of no lessons and my game goes to pot. :-P

Day 22

ten minutes putting short putts with and without ruler.

Tge ruler I use is 1inch wide. It takes pretty good focus to consistently roll the ball all the way down the 3foot ruler.

Got a couple swings to really “kick” and am trying to reproduce them with as little effort as possible.

1/23/18:

More work with my path drill with the soda bottles today. Full swing 54° wedges today for about 10 minutes, with the focus of not hitting the bottles. I only hit the inside bottle one time. So it seems to be instilling the proper path. So I'll keep doing it for a while.

Day 5 - JAN 23

15 minutes of mirror work with slower swings. Focused on hip turn again through impact. My PT gave me clearance to start swinging more. I will move up to foam balls in the next few days.

Day 23.

Just did an old fashion swing drill for several minutes to day.

From my adress position I would swing back half way, making sure the toe of the club was pointing some what straight up. From there I would swing back down, and through, stopping half way up again, while seeing the club toe, again pointing some what straight up .

I would repeat this swing motion, back, and forth 6 times with out stopping. After 6 times, I would start over again from my address position. 

The idea is to keep all my swing body parts working well with each other.

    • All you can ask for is to have at least a bit of optimism in August. I've even heard Bears fans who have some belief (for some reason). Let's try to keep Mr. Swift healthy all year this time.   
    • Defense is going to be the big question mark.  I love Aiden Hutchinson, hope he can adjust to the NFL quickly, but I'm not concerned about him getting there.  Maybe a healthy Jeff Okudah helps the DB group, jury is still out on him since he hasn't been able to stay healthy since he was drafted. Offense is exciting though.  Jared Goff may not be the long term answer, but I also try not to forget he's been to a Super Bowl.  He's a very accurate passer.  He developed a good rapport with St. Brown by the end of last season, and when Jameson Williams gets healthy there will be some legit weapons.  And in the long term, Lions are building a good foundation, and they may be able to simply slide in the answer at quarterback in the future. I'm biased, but also optimistic.  Hard Knocks made it really easy to get excited for the season.
    • They drafted a bunch of defensive players, so maybe that side of the ball gets a little better. Swift, St. Brown and Hockensen are decent. It is a shame Williams isn't going to start the season. I'm just not sure how far they'll ever get with Goff at quarterback. 
    • Anyone watch Hard Knocks?  Detroit Lions are the team followed for training camp and the preseason, which I absolutely love to see.  I'm not expecting them to take a Bengals like jump to the Super Bowl this season, but I love Dan Campbell's passion and intensity, and I can't wait to see what he gets from those guys this season.
    • Damn, I could've written that  As for the OP's question: I don't.  Or, more accurately: Won't.  Currently training to rebuild my swing from the ground up. Only difference between driver and irons is setup: The ball placed somewhat more forward--off the heel of my lead foot, and a slight upper-body lean away from the target. Swing is the same. So, if I'm hitting my irons the way I want, I should be hitting my driver the way I want.
