Hard to think of a cheaper training aid than some foot spray... Worth every penny

Finally got to do some “chipping” after what seems forever. Was pleased with results after 4+ months. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

Hit a few 7 irons, and christened the new (2nd hand) 5 wood.     I think I'm going to be pretty happy with the Cobra F8 fairways. I definitely need to work on m

At home like everyone else so trying to get whatever practice I can.  Tried some pitching and chipping of various distances to get a few of my half yardages locked in.  Need to focus a bit more on keeping club face square through impact and the different swings it takes for various ball flights.

We are self-isolated for at least 30 days. Just got back from New Zealand (our winter/their summer) on Sunday, where we had self isolated the last 10 days after a bike tour on the South Island. That adventure required four flight legs. Then we flew a non-stop from Auckland to Vancouver and drove home. We don't want to be a risk to our friends and neighbors, so are staying at the house. Our club's course is closed. So I grabbed the shag bag and a couple clubs and headed for the yard. Wife asked "Where are you going?" I replied, "I'm going to practice chipping.". Wife, "No you're not. I've seen you chip." That's so cold.

Local school set up. When folks arent around its basically a tight driving range which is a pretty good deal all things considered right now.Snapchat-645256977.jpeg.1b0958c488f33c87858e79e84d937701.jpeg

I ordered a hitting mat the other day and it came in the mail today. It's a Callaway 8x16 that I thought would be good enough to get in the backyard and work on some short chips. I set up an old plant container and proceeded to try to get one in.

I didn't sink one, but it did give me the opportunity to work on ball position, ball flight, and just making better strikes. 20200401_173319-01.jpeg

A semi-private course about 25 min North is open, so I went up there to hit balls. I hit a full pyramid and a half

I have the same small strip for my backyard. Works well enough!

On that note, I've been working a ton with my 60 degree wedge hitting all sorts of different chips and pitches. Even have a pretty good 15-25 yard lob shot going at the moment. Probably won't pull that out on the course unless absolutely necessary, however.

With all the strides you've made with your swing speed, if you get an arsenal of wedge shots you'll be killing it.

@Rickp I ordered it from Target. It ain't the biggest thing, but I'm loving it for my wedges.

I got back outside today to spend more quality time with the new hitting mat working on short chips. Right now I have an old flower container with a diameter of about 12" that I'm using as my target. I still haven't landed one in it, but did have one bounce in and a couple more that hit it. I would have taken a picture, but the yard needs mowing and didn't think I'd expose y'all to that mess.

One of the things I've discovered about my chipping is that I have WAY too much tension in my swing. That, and I also discovered that I'm gripping the club really tight with my right hand. So today was just focus on nice and loose swings.
