  1. 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!

  2. 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...

  3. 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.

    1. Showing up less than 15 minutes before your tee time. - No, I need a good warm up and some practice before teeing off 
    2. 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
    3. Failing to pick up the flagstick. - Might happen if I'm really tired
    4. 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
    5. 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)
    6. Talking to someone else's ball. - No
    7. Standing behind someone as they putt. - No, I usually stand out of their view.
    8. Walking in a player's through line. - No
    9. Placing bag on a tee box. - No
    10. 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) 
    11. Lack of divot pattern on the driving range. - No
    12. Not picking up on a match play hole when you're out of it. - NoI rarely play match play but pick up after a certain amount of strokes if there are other players behind on the course
    13. Checking your phone too much. - No, golf is time away from phone/email/etc
    14. Gimmes (failing to give, taking too many for yourself) - No
