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 12  November 24.   Worked through 30 drills from the book, "How to Train for Golf Like an Olympian"   I am on Day 7 of the 25 day Tour 25 Blueprint Challenge.  Some days like yesterday I was not able to go through the program because the course was closed, and other days when I play golf I am not able to go through it.  So I only count those days where I can devote 4 hours to it... like today.  Each drill sequence takes 8 plus minutes so 240 minutes later I was done.  Since the program involves 8 hours a day, and I am only doing 4 hours, I will be on this for 50 half days to reach completion, unless my body stops aching :-)

I will be playing golf twice in the next week so I am looking forward how my range work is translating to the course.

Day 330 - November 24, 2020

Did a bunch of slow motion backswing drills near a wall, partly to test out something for my students and partly because it's my part of the golf swing.

Day 1 Week 5

Let my body heal & recover over the weekend so no practice.  I did review a lot of video of my swing.

Day 347

Did rehearsal backswing practice in patio door mirror. Then did some tempo drills with 7-iron hitting balls at about what felt like 75% speed.

DAY 13  November 25.   Out early and worked on my chipping/pitching for a couple of hours.  I think I am finally getting more comfortable with the Chip-Putt approach.  Hit lots of balls... to various targets... and with a change to my grip, and stance... it went very well.... Competence then Confidence :-)   Now the Hinge and Hold technique is in a different place in regards to Competence.

Went to the putting green for 90 minutes.  I always start with a Technical/Technique Drill... usually the Pelz Putting Tutor to check if I am able to consistently start the ball on line.  Then did two different distance control drills.  One with putts in the 15-20 foot range and the other in the 30-70 foot range.

Wishing all that read this a VERY Happy Thanksgiving... and particular thanks to The Moderator for bringing this Forum to life.

Day 3 Week 5

Spent a chunk of time with my 8 iron on 1/4 and 1/2 swing hitting the ball.  

I don't know why but when I want to learn how and work on a swing my 8 iron is my go to club to start to get the feel for it.

Day 331 - November 25, 2020

Took a break (while watching videos I had to watch for a thing) to make backswing in the patio door glass. The videos kept playing. Fun. 😛

Day 332 - November 26, 2020 - Thanksgiving

Went downtown for two hours to hit balls. Spent an hour of that on the phone with my mom, but got in a good hour of practice after that. Wasn’t quite as good as the other day, but I slowed it down, shortened it up, and had some good success after that.

DAY 14  November 26.  Happy Thanksgiving!!!   Stayed at home today with the family.  However, I did get some time in my office to make practice swings using my Impact Ball and shortened 5 iron.  Working on my rotation and less swaying in the backswing.
