8 reps with a minute pause in between full swing reps with a couple less aggressive warmup reps. Stretching hamstrings. Working on slow movements through the transition. Tai Chi slow with weight shift incorporated into movement. Also keeping the lead wrist well pronated. Full coil backswing, lead arm straight getting past parallel. I have to focus on retaining the C-spine posture. Used a roller to work the upper back/shoulders, lats, glutes and calve muscles. Using a swing sequencing version 3 club simulator with a swing speed radar to do the above. will be using this from now on with or without SS monitor.

Driving range, hit balls, driver is kind of wild. Started using my MP32 with heavier shafts. Irons are good up to 4i and I can almost hit the 3i reasonably.

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

3/31/18: Day 365: The post you've all been waiting for.  I did some more work with my A4 to A5 drills. I know it seems like it's monotonous and stupid... But yesterday after I posted I

Well I'm at 276 consecutive days. 1/1/18: I did my path drill indoors today. For those of you who don't know what this is, it involves 2 to 4 water or soda bottles a club and a foam ball. I

Day 65

10 minutes putting on the metal ruler at 3 feet and without at 3-6 feet. Working on bead and speed.

I worked on a smaller slower stroke on the ruler. Where I have been sending it down at a pretty good clip, I worked on

a slower pace today. There are putts at my course in season that break 18 inches or more in 3 feet, and the stroke is just a

breath to get it started on line.

Day 65 Travel day. Heading home. 

Spent some time putting again. Reads, alignment, and distance  were the focus.

From there I moved to chips. Reads, alignment, ball position, and distances were the focus. 

From there, it was 20-30 yard pitches. Same focus as my chips. 

My distances in the chips, and pitches included landing spots.

DAY 96    Warmed up then played 18 holes at World Woods Rolling Oaks course.   All the work I have been doing is starting to pay off.  I hit 14 GIR, though shot 78.  My putting could do with a lot of improvement.  On the other hand, I was pretty pleased with my ball striking.  Now working with my KPlayer to further build my swing.

Day 32

worked on driver today for 30 minutes. Went from slow swing to speeding it up to full speed swing. Really focused on take away and follow through. Hitting less distance, but now more control and consistency. A lot going down the middle of the fairway now.

Day 32 - March 6, 2018 - Worked on my swing and recorded some video today. Going to record some better video here soon. It's coming along, and looks better, but still needs a lot of work. Totally expected.

Day 341:

I took another break from my full swing stuff this morning. I worked on a "pitching" motion. For shots in that 30-50 yard range that I struggle with at time... I'm up with Alina getting her ready for school, so I'm working on that while waiting for the school bus, so about 15 minutes or so. I should probably watch Erik's "Quickie Pitching Video" whilst I'm on the laptop... So I figure I'll get my post done for the day.

24 days to one full year.

Since we're into my 12th month in a row, I will post the number of days until I hit one year, in my post. Although as you probably can tell, I hit 365 consecutive days on March 31.

Day 33

putted for 10 minutes to get a smooth stroke with old putter that is lighter. I use heavier putter for fast greens and lighter putter for slow greens. Playing course soon with slow greens and have to beat my brother.

Day 35 - Weather is not cooperating with another Nor'easter coming today. I did 15 minutes mirror work at the gym focusing on hip and shoulder turn from the top and letting lag happen with proper right elbow positions.

Day 66

I spent 15 minutes putting 3-7 feet. Working on aim and stroke. I used the metal 3 foot ruler for a few, then moved out to 4,5,6 and 7 feet. I experimented with my feet slightly open but shoulders and chest square, with some positive results.

Day 66.

Nothing special this morning. About 15 minutes of me swinging my Kallassy club. Only focus was to losen up. Have a some what busy day ahead of me. Some post road trip stuff to take care of. Going to try and squeeze in a few holes this afternoon on my home course. I have played a lot of golf the past few weeks. (16.5 rounds). Might just take it easy for a couple of days.

(32)

Worked on my pivot for a few minutes, then made several pitching motions with a wedge. Feels really smooth. Finished up with a few full practice swings without a ball, no video.
