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

Day 1 Finally back doing the golf thing. Without going into a lot of detail, I lost strength in the legs for almost any activity, including standing and balance. After impressive work done by my

Day 110.  Today was another one of those days where, periodically during the work day, I wandered to my practice room to hit indoor 6-iron (off a mat, into a net, real balls)

Day 111.  After dinner tonight, I went to a nearby practice facility.  I did 15 minutes of chipping (real balls to a real enough green) and 15 minutes of putting.  The area was sufficiently crowded that I couldn't really do any drills, but I worked on technique and distance control.

Day 301

Played 18. Shot a pretty stress free 88. Could have been better with sharper short game, duffed a few pitch/chips that were costly. Wasn’t comfortable at all with driver, and lost some strokes off the tee. Emailed instructor and asked for next week’s lesson to be 50% driver work.

Day #7....Reset.

I just read through the Stupid Monkey thread and came to the conclusion my "5 Minute Daily Practice" is all over the board and not focused.  I'm going to look back at my last lesson comments and pick something to work on and get more focused on that.  Thus today I reset back to Day #0 with intent to do better practice.

Day 60

played 18 today. Struck the ball better than I have in ages. Score still wasn’t there but a 95 on a course where I last shot a 104 is something I can live with. A few unforced errors and some bad putting or I would have broken 90.

Day 112.  Another day where I periodically during the work day go to my indoor practice room (next room over from home office) to hit a few balls (indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls when hitting one).  Today I re-emphasized the slow rehearsal swings.

    • It was probably a gift. Personalized golf ball. 
    • Day 72 (6/15/21) - Worked on tempo with my putter and a metronome.
    • Three rounds to catch up on: 5/12: Played Hillandale from the whites. Not a good start, +5 after 3 holes, but I parred the tough fourth hole and battled back to shoot 44 on the front and 42 on the back for 86. I was pretty happy after the poor start. Irons were spectacular, but short game…not so much. 5/14: Yesterday it was back to Umstead Pines, and we decided to play the blues. I played a solid front nine, 44. Three pars and two doubles. My bro played one of the best nines of his life. After a triple on the first hole, he parred the second and then bogeyed in. 47 for him! We moved on to the back. I slipped a little to start the back, but I righted the ship again and parred the last two holes for 45 on the back and 89 total. How I shot 89 is beyond me, because my whole game felt shaky after about the sixth hole. 5/15: I had a feeling before we played that I would go low, and I did. I was +1 through 7, and while I doubled 8 after an unlucky bounce on my tee shot, I rolled in about a ten footer for birdie on 9 to shoot a two-over 38 on the front. And after 12, I was still only +3, having started par-bogey-par.  Thoughts started creeping in, and I doubled 13, 14 and 16 with a three putt bogey on 15. +10 going into 17. I caught a horrific bounce on my approach and had to settle for bogey, then I parred the last hole to shoot 45 on the back and an 83 total. Unlike the last two rounds, short game was on point today. I hit nine fairways, and two of my misses were by no more than a yard. I’ve got an early tee time tomorrow morning with a buddy, and we’re planning on playing a handicap match. More on that tomorrow!
    • Day 1 backswing work yesterday at Golf Evolution with @iacas   Day 2. Back home.  Did mirror work drills this evening.
    • Day 112.  Morning I snuck out to the putting green;  after warm-up, I did the 4' drill.  Must have had a harder break this time, took me 18 putts to finish.  Not bad, not great.  Got home, got some work done, went back to practice (the rest is at home).  I did a dozen chip shots with my 54 (well, a friend's 54 I'm thinking of trying for a few rounds) and then did 20 full shots with the 7-iron (slow, as I'm practicing something).  I think adjustments after the video the other day have helped to change the picture, and I want to go confirm this tomorrow if I can.
