I keep a putter and my PuttOUT at the church for little putting sessions during the day. Most often, I'm using a mat, but occasionally I try to make some long-distance putts (with camera on, just in case). And today I was awarded the long distance perfect putt record (a bit over 40'):

 

The fist pump at the end = 🐅! Nice!!!

Here’s a pretty cool putting drill that my coach posted on YouTube . You’ll need two alignment rods, and 2 rubber bands. I’ve tried this at home, and I really like it!

Would have hit balls today but USPS lost my net in shipping. Just called to explain to me the difficulty in sending a package from Buffalo to my house in Long Island. I no longer wonder why they are a bankrupt entity.

I can't do that from 4 feet, let alone 40.  Crazy good!

Ok first don't judge me on lawn maintenance 😉 .. gave my mower to a cousin two years ago as we have a cheap, very good and very reliable landscaper .. they're respecting SIP rules.

Anyway, set up a few driveway markers / alignment rods in back with the first approx 8-10 yards off the edge of the patio and another at about 20, plus one in the middle.

20200414_145011.thumb.jpg.f42f55d7b9db6f8002fcfdbc08b27d3c.jpg

Took an old PW and an old 54 and alternated between the two, while alternating hitting to the different targets and alternating between hi/lo type shots.

Notice I'm not showing off the "after" picture 😄 .. cannot brag about any Phil-like dispersion pattern! But do feel like I'm making some progress with the short game.

Here's the thing about high grass in the lawn, it keeps the golf balls from bouncing all over the place. I think you're practicing smarter, not harder.

Nothing today other than stretching at the office unfortunately! Got some serious yard work going on that’s pretty much drained me....120 yards of dirt fill spread and raked, 3 trees cut down and cut up. 
this coming weekend another tree, driveway cut out to prep for retaining wall and patio....guess I’m getting my workouts in which is good!

plenty of room for a net after which will be good

Well they were easier to pick up, being in a relatively smaller area (vs the "real" dispersion 😄)!

Thx, actually manually aerated the whole thing several weeks ago, and it's had an application of fertilizer too. Been a work in progress over a few years!

Did you use an aerator machine or did you get the feet aerators where you just walk the lawn?

I have been meaning to do this (machine anyway) but working the back yard now and want to get some good loom in before I do.

Today like most days involved stretching. Today was weighted bar (see picture). This bar allows multiple stretches but I focus typically on rotation with this and holding. I have been stiff in the back as of late and have been trying to really stretch and work our core rotation. I highly recommend in investing in a bar like this FYI

Man, I couldn’t find it today. Set-up the net, did my drills, then started full swings. I was videoing and I just can’t get shallow. I naturally have an upright swing, so shallowing the club has been very difficult. Add to this my back disease, and rotation becomes a challenge.
Ugh.
I’m ready for this stuff to start clicking. So frustrating.

I have a very basic push, not motorized, aerator with a roller and a flat plate over that where I've added a weight (paving stone). It just pushes the tines in, doesn't dig up cores.

Effective enough plus it's a heckuva workout!

You working with a coach, eg. sending them video for analysis/feedback?

I haven't tried it myself .. yet .. but had been scheduled to see Monte Scheinblum in person at one of his clinics, and he - along with many other pros, of course - is offering video and online coaching.

I call a guy and for $69.95 does the yard. Remember I’m 73 with bad knees.[emoji12]

The home range has opened. Assuming USPS lost the net I ordered I found a Callaway net at my local Target that will do the job. Contactless curbside pickup was a big plus as well.
