What/How did you practice today?


Recommended Posts

Hit a small bucket this morning, still working on the backswing and starting down with solid weight transfer. Things went pretty well, the less moving parts I have in the swing, the better the results!

I spent a lot of time with my 54 hitting to a target and I dropped a few right in front of it, I was really pleased with that. My aim tends to get skewed because I naturally want to set up open. The biggest thing I took away from lessons was to feel like I was pulling my right (rear) shoulder back after I took my stance, and sometimes I get forgetful and that leads to tons of bad shots.

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

Figured I should hit my new irons before putting them in play for a four day tournament. I think they fit me really well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

It wasn’t the original plan but at the last minute, General Thunder? ordered Private Putter to report for indoor tempo drills.

Well this is not good. Today I felt disconnected and could not find my swing. Almost like watching a beginner at the driving range . I was topping the ball and could not get dialed in. Now I am stressing. Everything for last few months was in order, weekly routine, drills, range time, quality ball striking and today, freaking today I look and feel like I have never played................. Got to get this fixed by weekend.  Apologies for rant.

Fantastic range day.

warmed up with wedges and then focused on 8/4 iron and then got to the infamous 3 wood (sim hzrdus green shaft). Shaft is AMAZING! The feel of the sim is crazy. Great pop and sound. 
It will be replacing my driver for a while. I was longer with as good of swing speed if not faster (hit 123 5 times averaged 115).

the range i go to has a back fence and I have not hit it nervermind cleared it with driver. I did both today with the 3 wood....multiple times....

needless to say when the sim drivers go down I may have to gander at them and get the hzrdus green with it

That sounds like good range time with the 3 wood. Hard not to use it in place of your driver with results like that.

Range time. Small bucket of 1/2 swings just working on turning the knuckles down, then a large bucket working through the bag. Starting to feel more normal!

Worked hard on the driver yesterday.  I've been casting it pretty badly recently, so I've been doing a lot of drills to stop it.

I need to do more half swing buckets like that. Since working with my coach on path, I'm pushing a little bit because I'm not getting the face closed enough at impact.

Have a member guest tomorrow so I went to a local course to hit some balls. Just worked on tempo and trying to feel shots instead of just mechanics. Had a first while I was there.

Got to the range and threw my AirPods in like I always do and about halfway through my bucket a dude walks up and starts rummaging through my bag looking at my clubs. Decides for some reason taking out my 8 iron was a good idea. I asked nicely, not so nice and then angrily to get him to leave. Dude had the balls to go inside and tell the shop I threatened him on the range. Once I explained it to the guy from the shop he got it and told me to finish my bucket and the guy will be escorted off the property. Seriously, would anyone here ever go up to someone’s bag of a person you don’t know and start grabbing clubs?

Hit a local muni that has a nice short game practice area this morning, took my dozen practice ProV1's and felt my arms against my body for 50 or so pitches, then over to the practice green. My putting routine is typically to take 12 balls with the prayer drill to keep my wrists quiet and feel my body move through the ball, then another 12 with two wedges setting up a "gate" of sorts, feeling good temp and getting the ball centered on the putter face.

Then I'll set up a "windmill" of tees, 12 in total, 4 at 3', 4 at 6', and 4 at 9'. I went around each spot 4 times, and my stroke is feeling really good. To wrap up putting, I go back and forth between 2 holes roughly 30 feet apart, trying to 2-putt 10 times in a row. Finally, I chipped from a few different lies and tried to take different wedges and shots to a few different holes. Hitting little 40 foot checkers with my 60° wedge is a lot of fun, and I might be getting consistent enough with it to use it if I need it on the course! Great day of practice, feeling like the short game is really getting dialed in.

This is not good #2. Yall can go ahead and laugh and suggest help needed advice if you may. Help/prayers needed. 🤔

So today, good beautiful day. Went outside to practice lob wedge shots. Here's the setup. Back yard has my hitting mat to front yard golf flag/pin. No wind, again perfect weather about 85 degrees. No noise from neighbors, dogs are behaving and just watching me, wife is watering plants and doing her thing. I have about 37 yard carry/landing spot and allow ball ~6 yards to release to flag stick/pin. Its bermuda and shaggy with relatively hard soil underneath. Ball always releases in my yard. Anyway I am 30 minutes into my practice session and I have just nearly holed 4 out of my last 20 balls. Thinking, I should have went to course. I am getting a little hot/sweaty but I am OCD and keep practicing. Then the worst thing happens. I shank the freaking ball into one of my downstairs windows and the wife sees it. This is bad. Real bad. I knew I should have stopped after nearly holing out two beautiful high lob shots that kissed the flag stick/pin. But I kept on and that shank happened. I freaking never shank the ball with my wedge game. So I got the wife calmed down, will get the window fixed. But I can't get that shot out of head. And what if its permanent, like the next time I take my lob wedge it happens freaking again? Not good. I am stressing.

Sorry about the window.  Just forget about the shanks.  I had a day where i was warming up for a round and shanked half the warm up bucket.   Everything turned out fine on the course.
