  1. Day 20 10 minutes working on backswing and top of downswing. Having real trouble keeping the club reasonably in a swing plane as I I tend to drop the club towards the ground and then coming down inside-to-outside.
  2. Day 17 Indoor chipping practice in my hallway. Working on getting a better feeling for the boll trajectory when chipping with different clubs, mainly 7 iron and 56 and60 degree wedges.
  3. Day 17 Chipping and putting practice prior to playing 18 holes. I played horribly but it was a really beautiful day with great weather and it might have been the last round this year with summer greens.
  4. Day 16 Indoor putring practice for 15 minutes working on my aim. I have a tendency to aim a little to the left of the actual line when not picking a aiming point close to the ball.
  5. Day 15 Got out to the club today 😀 Did a little work on irons at the range but mostly short game practice. Focus on medium and long chips and pitches. Then I finished off with 9 holes. All in all a great day!
  6. Day 14 Full swing practice behind the house. Working on hip rotation (I tend to over-rotate in the backswing) and sliding the hip forward in the downswing.
  7. Day 13 30 minutes of indoor putting practice working on length and tempo. Very frustrating session as it felt that I couldn't hit any good strokes. I hope I can get out on the course tomorrow.
  8. Day 12 Limited time today. 15 minutes of indoor putting practice doing 1' to 6' putts trying to get the putts to be 6-12" longer than the distance to the hole.
  9. Day 11 The early morning saw some swing practice without ball behind the house. In the afternoon I had a few hours of short game practice at the club. Some chipping and plenty of pitching trying to get better consistency. Unfortunately no putting as there was a junior putting competition at the main putting green. All in all a good practice day!
  10. Day 10 Indoor putting practice for 20 minutes. Mostly practicing 5-7 feet putts trying to focus on aiming as I seem to struggle with getting my aim right for these length of putts.
  11. Day 9 Range practice hitting 50 balls. Trying not to over-rotate in the backswing and drop down the club.
  12. Day 8 After a long day of non-golf activities it was pitch dark outside when I got home even though I wasn't that late. I was really not feeling like putting so I did short chips in the hallway - great fun! I really need to get a chipping net and some good indoor practice balls before I break something. Winter is coming...
  13. Day 7 Disappointing day as I had hoped to have time to head out to the club. Unfortunately I had to settle with some putting and chipping at home. Trying to find a good tempo for the putting but really struggling.
  14. Day 6 Managed to get in 15 minutes of putting before bed. Again focusing on speed. Hopefully I'll be able to find time for to hit the practice area tomorrow.
  15. Day 5 Spent 25 minutes on indoor putting working on speed. Filmed most of it trying to figure how close to the sweet spot I hit.
  16. Day 4 An absolutely beautiful autumn day in the Stockholm area! A bit chilly in the morning but I started with some chipping and putting in the practice area followed by 36 holes of golf. Irons and driver felt good but my short game was pretty poor (even given my embryonic golf skills) and my putting was horrible. Given that it's usually the other way around I was a bit surprised. More practice area time and less driving range for the coming weeks...
  17. Day 3 About 40 minutes of putting while watching Ryder fourballs. Working on speed and consistency but wasn't focused enough so it felt like wasted practice time. Went outside to spend some time on full swing (w/o balls) trying to get a better feeling for moving the weight forward and hip rotation.
  18. Day 2 Indoor putting for 35 min while watching (or rather listening to) Ryder Cup. Focusing on hitting sweet spot.
  19. Day 1 Did about 40 minutes of indoor putting practice, mostly 3" and 5" trying to to hit with a little less speed. I'm trying to overshoot by 6-12' now after reading a bit about Aimpoint. I'm joining this tread to put a bit of pressure on myself not to skip out on practice when I'm tired after a long day. I'm realize I'm a bit late to the party but recently joined TST and just found this tread and I hope I can keep it up for the rest of the year.
  20. Showing up less than 15 minutes before your tee time. - No, I need a good warm up and some practice before teeing off Putting with too many balls on the practice green. - No, I pick up my extra balls if there are more than a few other players around Failing to pick up the flagstick. - Might happen if I'm really tired Taking only one club to your ball on cart path only days. - N/A, I prefer to carry and I don't play any courses that forces me to use a cart Looking for a lost ball for more than five minutes. - No, I find looking for lost balls to be the worst part of golf so I try to limit my exposure to this horrible activity even if it might cost me a few strokes (admittedly I only play casually) Talking to someone else's ball. - No Standing behind someone as they putt. - No, I usually stand out of their view. Walking in a player's through line. - No Placing bag on a tee box. - No Walking across the green with your bag. - Yes, I had never heard of this being a breach of etiquette. However, I'm a slim guy with a light stand bag so I doubt I do much damage to the greens (would guess on approximately 170-180 lbs with bag) Lack of divot pattern on the driving range. - No Not picking up on a match play hole when you're out of it. - No, I rarely play match play but pick up after a certain amount of strokes if there are other players behind on the course Checking your phone too much. - No, golf is time away from phone/email/etc Gimmes (failing to give, taking too many for yourself) - No
