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 9 December 12th.   Loaded my phone with a metronome app in preparation for using it as I practice chipping/short pitches.  Then went to the range and worked for a little over two hours... on the same things, more rotation on the backswing, with more wrist cock, staying in posture, and having a more complete finish... I tend to stop rotating my chest so I short arm the finish... well my term for it.  Used the Swingwyde as a helpful feedback tool.  Then blasted out 25 drives to finish up... preparing for the new year challenge :-)

Day 10 December 13   My body is finally healthy enough to get back on the plan!!  I am determined to finish the Tour 25 Blueprint Challenge from the book, "How to Train for Golf like an Olympian."  Last month I had to abandon the plan due to pinched nerve in my mid-back.  Now I am ready to start again!!  Today I did various technical swing drills, motion drills and club awareness drills... which amounted to 18 drills -- hitting 8 balls with each drill.  In between drills I worked with the Swingwde and hit 3 balls.  For a total of 198 balls over a three plus hour period.  So this is DAY 1 of the Tour 25BluePrint Challenge.

Now to work on my mental skills activities!! Meditation, "Greatest Hits Journal" and some pre-round visualizations for a round this coming Wednesday.

DAY 11 December 14    Monday's are my off days from practice -- except for putting down a 3 foot ruler in my office and some work on my swing in the garage.  I hit 50 putts down the ruler... had 2 roll off before making to the end.  Work on this continues until I can make 50 in a row, then graduate to an even more narrow ruler.. AKA the Harold Swash Rail.

In addition to working on my putting skills, I spent an hour plus on a Zoom call focused on the mental side of the game.  I do at last three of these hour long plus calls each month, plus homework and reading and an online course.  Trying to help my mental game catch up... so I am firing on on all cylinders.

Day 366

Warmed up hitting some 7-irons into my net. Worked on tempo today, since I feel like I am starting to rush transition a bit. Did a superspeed workout, and then hit a few more 7-irons.

Day 63: It’s 30F out with a 15 mph NWN wind. I’m from New England so I’m thinking shorts weather!😜 Actually went to the range to work with a set of Edel wedges I picked up, 52, 56 and 60. I’ve been playing 50, 54, 58, but my Titleist PW is 47. I wanted the gaps to be better and wanted to have a 56 sand wedge. They feel pretty much the same and launch just a tad higher. I was able to work on partial shots and short to long chips and pitches. This range has a short game area you can hit into from the mats.

Later I did SuperSpeed work and used the 60 in the backyard. Practicing my lob shots so I can finally catch one!

Day 12 December 15th..  Second day of the Tour 25 Blueprint Challenge

Spent an hour on the putting green divided between putts less than 5 feet and those over 30.

Spent an hour around the chipping green working on turning through the ball, turf-club interaction and rhythm.

Spent 3 1/2 hours on the range working through 21 drills which focus on Club Awareness and Motion (the motion of your swing).. in between each drill I hit a 3-wood that had the Swingwyde connected to it.  I hit 231 balls and lots of practice swings.  Then finished off with 30 wedge shots to 50 and 75 yard targets, and then a pin at 60yards.
