I've got an idea, and I'd like buy-in from a good number of people here. I'd like people to commit to doing this every day in April. Since we're all stuck inside (not all, and not literally inside 24/7, but you get the drift), I thought we could use this time to go through a 30-day practice plan. Specifically, my idea is this: Every day I'll produce a video showing you something to practice for five minutes. I'll post the video in the morning. I'd like everyone to practice that for five minutes, in your home, that day. I'd like everyone to post that they did it, and what they thought about it, and if possible a video of themselves doing the drill or game or whatever. I have got a few good ideas for the first four or five days, and will talk with @mvmac and some other guys about what we can do on different days. Some will be putting, short game, full swing… but all will be a drill you can do in just five minutes. They may not be something you specifically need to do, but since rehearsing good moves is a good thing, I'll again ask that everyone sign up and do it. I'm making this a challenge, so anyone who can do 28+ of the 30 daily drills will earn the badge at the end of the month. I'll keep the drills simple - you won't need to visit a range or even necessarily hit a golf ball (the putting things may involve an actual golf ball), so everyone can do them. Why? Again, if we're gonna be stuck inside, or at home, we can at least do some things to improve our golf. It'll help stave off boredom (for me as much as y'all) and give us something to do together. Post below if you're in, and on April 1, I'll post the first video. (Hint: it's gonna be about the first part of the backswing. 🙂)
Seems like times like these brings out the best and worst of people. The media loves to show the guy with 50 rolls of TP in his cart and even here things have gotten a little tense from time to time, I am a guilty party to that myself. So I will start with something positive from the Covid-19 pandemic. I usually play in the late afternoons at my course and I rarely say two words to anyone because everyone there at that time is in a rush to get in their game before dark. Now though it seems people stop and talk, from a distance of course, and I have met several people and wound up playing with them. You have to walk when I get there so you eventually you are going to run into someone and strike up a conversations. Also, in the neighborhood people are talking and being outside which is way out of the norm for my little corner of the Island. In that way it's a good thing to come from this. What have you seen or done that is a positive from all of this?
