What/How did you practice today?

Used the planemate this morning with a small poofy foot test bean bag as an ad hoc impact trainer. Mind is blown. Going to stick with this for a few weeks.

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

I had to come home from work and do some touch up cleaning on my car because I found out today that my new lease is in and I am scheduled to pick it up tomorrow. I was hoping to get a full practice se

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

Spent around 45 mins putting in my living room. I set up 2 quarters about 10 feet apart and did my best to place balls within 3" of them when possible. I had mentioned in another thread, every now and again my clubhead will twist and my start line is WAY out to the right. We'll see if I can resolve that over the winter.

Finally back doing the golf thing. Without going into a lot of detail, I lost strength in the legs for almost any activity, including standing and balance. After impressive work done by my primary care physician. cardiologist, and great physical therapists, all is in order for doing "golf activities".  So far I can chip and putT and lightly swing my Orange Whip®.  So I did a little of each.  Results were "OK" for now. All showed severe rust; but, I expected that.

Great to be back!

It's great to hear you're recovering and able to get back to golf related activities.

Finished my backyard leveling project in the summer, but never put my practice net back up yet. Put it up today, will be much better with level ground. Also, much less likely to hit balls over the fence now lol.

Bundled up and hit about 125 pitches and chips with mostly my 9i, 47 degree, and 58 degree. Buddy pointed out to me a few weeks ago that my focus didnt seem to be on point lie usual. So my maim focus was focus. Also trying to get back to a "no mercy" or "take their head off" attitude. Something I used to have but has been lacking the last year. More tenacious maybe.

I bought the DownUnderBoard last night, and after watching Bradley's introduction video, I started messing around with the feels in the basement before the board arrives.

The concept of the board is to "squeeze" it during your backswing and downswing. I ordered it for my backswing specifically - I struggle to correctly internally rotate my right hip. However, I was messing with the feels in my basement and am now really excited to go hit balls for another reason - the downswing.

Ever since I started lessons with my coach, we've tried to get me to stop getting to my left heel so quickly in my downswing. I realized that by "squeezing" my left foot in on the downswing, my hips move in such a way that my weight shifts correctly! 

This is all with half swings and whiffles of course, but I'm hoping to get out to the range this weekend and now I'm really excited to try out this new feel!

So you squeeze your feet together on each side of the board?

Correct. Normally this is something I'd DIY but I'm being really lazy (and, no table saw to cut plywood). Plus the new "pro" version can be setup to accommodate flared feet, which is what I do.

Crude sketch of how I feel my pressure:

Here's an older face-on still illustrating the downswing fault I'm hoping to fix:

I have a quite soft front side and you can see how much I'm already pivoted onto the left heel. I never really "post up" on the left leg and you can see how I need my hands to save the shot.

Something to try that doesn't require a board and I think may give the same 'feel'... I am interested if it does give you the same feel as the board or not.

Place two balls under the outside of your right foot (heel and midstep) so it makes your foot angle toward the ball and promotes the weight toward your right toes rather than heel.  Your right knee will also be 'kicked in' with a slight lean toward the ball.  Take a few 3/4 swings, you will not be able to sway or fall too far back on the backswing and it promotes moving your weight transfer through the ball on the downswing rather than falling backwards.

i’d be careful here promoting an internally rotated hip position and attempting to apply any force to a valgus knee. 

as an aid to achieve a certain feel it’s probably fine but i wouldn’t apply any significant force as it’s a very weak position for both the hip and knee joint. 

edit: i’m aware this position occurs naturally in the swing (back leg in the downswing, close to impact and sometimes front leg in the backswing), but it’s a position your body passes through on its way to a more structurally solid position. my caution is against setting the hip and knee that way and loading against it.

I've done this drill in the past and it never felt quite right. It does do a similar thing as the board, I presume (hard to tell since I'm only imagining the board between my feet at this point).

Ironically, the kicked in right knee was my go to to stop a sway, but I don't rotate hardly at all that way and it causes my swing to become all arms. Also, as @Chip Strokes mentioned, it caused a lot of knee pain for me during a full swing.

Last night started the indoor chipping season. My stairs act as a ball return. Really focusing on my path because I was struggling this year with toeing off the green...really pissed me off...

Also not being able to swing is getting old....Its only been a week since I had a minor surgery...chipping just doesnt give you the fix.

I was able to get a small bucket in during some crazy wind gusts so I tried to focus on lowering my ballflight if I could.

Narrator voice: He couldn't.

I also was able to dial in the Bertha Mini. I left it at the stock 14* and moving it over to the D setting gave me really nice penetrating, pretty straight flight. And best of all? NO GARBAGE SHOTS. Period. Every single thing I hit after the first few shots when I was trying to figure out tee height and ball placement would have either been in the fairway or just off of it. 

I cannot wait to get out there Wednesday to play 18.

I've done this drill in the past and it never felt quite right. It does do a similar thing as the board, I presume (hard to tell since I'm only imagining the board between my feet at this point).

Ironically, the kicked in right knee was my go to to stop a sway, but I don't rotate hardly at all that way and it causes my swing to become all arms. Also, as @Chip Strokes mentioned, it caused a lot of knee pain for me during a full swing. 

I stated 3/4 swing not a full swing but its good to emphasize it for those that missed it initially..... 3/4 swing!!!

Finally back doing the golf thing. Without going into a lot of detail, I lost strength in the legs for almost any activity, including standing and balance. After impressive work done by my primary care physician. cardiologist, and great physical therapists, all is in order for doing "golf activities".  So far I can chip and putT and lightly swing my Orange Whip.  So I did a little of each.  Results were "OK" for now. All showed severe rust; but, I expected that.
Great to be back!

Glad to have you back!

I was able to get a small bucket in during some crazy wind gusts so I tried to focus on lowering my ballflight if I could.

Narrator voice: He couldn't.

I also was able to dial in the Bertha Mini. I left it at the stock 14* and moving it over to the D setting gave me really nice penetrating, pretty straight flight. And best of all? NO GARBAGE SHOTS. Period. Every single thing I hit after the first few shots when I was trying to figure out tee height and ball placement would have either been in the fairway or just off of it. 

I cannot wait to get out there Wednesday to play 18. 

Hope the weather holds out for ya! We are planning Friday 🤞

I went out this morning to play; absolutely beautiful sunny day with only a slight breeze.

Today was our annual Turkey Trot tournament, but it was canceled... no large gatherings allowed.  The tournament was for Thanksgiving at the Mission so we brought a frozen turkey and canned goods.  

I was going to post this in the How'd you play? thread, but it ended up being a practice round instead.  The course was packed!!  My wife and I were stuck between two foursomes, and the pace was sloooow.  I waited on every shot.  At the 2 hour mark for the front nine, we still had 2 holes to play.  I knew it would be slow since every other Friday is Hanford Friday Off work, and with this weather I think EVERYONE was off. I knew it would be slow, so I used the extra time to hit multiple shots at certain locations I know very well.  Driver was fine, but lower flight than I like; irons were OK but temps were in the high 40's so the ball didn't carry as far as I thought it should, so came up short a few times.  Chipping and putting were good.  

I'm playing tomorrow; similar weather but a few more clouds and 6-7 degrees cooler.
