What/How did you practice today?

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Last week purchased #Edingc SC 200 LM. Finally had a chance to hit a few shots at the local net. Driving Range was full of Snowbirds and I didn’t want to get hit.
Easy setup and hit a couple 8 irons and the guy in the next stall was staring at the LM. Explained what it was and he was all over it. Guy is 90 years old. So I did little coaxing and he was into it.
We had a lot of fun with it and him. Great morning, hope to see him again.
I’m 73 and he’s calling me Sonny!

Thanks Cody!

Had a lesson today. The first since October of last year. The unexpected loss of my mother in law in November put my practice and golf on the back burner. But I got back today.

 

Worked on the takeaway, getting more vertical, and then shallowing out hard on the downswing. Felt good. Looked good. Was definitely hard. Lots of practicing to be done. But I'm very happy with today's results.

 

Here's the video overview and drills I've got to work on.

I went out today to work on my wedges, lately I've been either hitting them very heavy or thin. My last time out to the range, I got frustrated on the chipping green and decided to swing the club back, pause, then focus on hitting the ball then the ground. It seems to have worked, as my pitches and chips are a lot more crisp.

I also watched a video from TXG about flighting wedges and wanted to see how that would work. Let's just say, I need a lot more practice getting them on line. It's a great video with one of the funniest ball flight graphics I've ever seen.

Other than that, my irons were good, except the 5. I was very consistent with strike on it, but they were all off the toe. The driver I only hit four times and it wasn't anything impressive. I really didn't want to spend too much time with it since the intended focus today was wedges.

That video has a wealth of knowledge. I don’t know how many times I’ve hit a 100 yard 6/7 iron. Then watch someone hit a 40 yard sand wedge yelling at it the whole time cause it’s ballooned on them and fell out of the sky.[/url]

It was definitely eye opening to just how much a 30 mph wind can cause a golf ball you just drop. I've never been good at hitting a lesser lofted club and hitting it lower, but now it's going to become a part of the practice routine. I've just got to figure out where to aim, I was hitting a lot of hooks today when I tried it.

I love the knowledge these guys bring to the table. I know I'll never be able to hit it like Matt (that guy's a beast), but it'll help tremendously with the mental side of the game.

The videos TXG has posted over the past few days have been really good.  I know it is long,  but the short game lesson has lots of great nuggets of information.

Not going against what they were saying on the video, but I rarely open up as much as Matt was.

They are far better at golf than I, but I just club up and stay mostly square with the ball back slightly. Figure out what works for you.

There video is awesome, but complex for sure.

In the short game lesson video, they talk about starting off square and then layering on other changes to create additional shots.  It is probably better to watch the short game lesson video prior to the knockdown shot video.   They also talk about doing what works for you.

I'm really enjoying the short game video, it's interesting to see the different things he's doing by just changing how he's setting up. The neural shaft lean, opening the body, and just how they're using the bounce is giving me a lot to think about. I like how they are promoting trying different things to find out what works. We are all different in how we deliver the club to the ball, and I can see where it's important to find what works each person.

Hit two buckets on the range, recorded video and sent it to the coach, then spent 30 minutes pitching with the 54* wedge.

Pretty nice day in northwest Ohio, the only open course was booked solid so my wife and I decided to go to the driving range (first time for her since her arm surgery in Jan). Both of us did pretty well. I was especially pleased with my short game - my sand wedge was working flawlessly. Hope that transfers to the course.

It's to be able to feel the position and movement and build muscle memory. It's exhausting. I'm weak

Hit the range twice last week.  Shaking rust off more than anything and trying to get my timing down.  

Looking back, i was just hitting ball after ball and wish I would have keyed in on something to feel like I was doing more thoughtful practice.  A couple things I may try to focus on through a range session are below.
