What/How did you practice today?


Recommended Posts

Working on that backswing stuff I was talking about. I think this is the best the swing has ever looked.

I went to the range today with the intention of working on one of the drills from the Strike Plan where you try to intentionally hit a toe shot and then a heel shot to develop feel for each in order t

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

Haven’t been hitting the 5 iron well at all for a long time. I guess that you could say that it is a confidence killer. Decided to hit a few balls in the garage this morning and have a little talk with the 5 iron.

With the help of a can of spray foot powder, I think that I found the problem. Holy heel/hosel shots Batman!!! That explains a lot.

Wiped the club clean and resprayed for round two. Hard focus on my takeaway and limited myself to 1/4 swings to attempt good contact. Worked up to about a 1/2 swing and it was looking promising. I will definitely need to keep working on this for a bit. When I get beyond a 1/2 swing it starts to get out of wack again.

I hit quite a few balls into the net yesterday in between doing some small chores and projects.  The hand position at the top and hip timing & position are feeling pretty good.  I am still having to think about it but I am getting closer to normal swing speed doing it. 

I also did quite a few swings with the home made speed sticks working on a more tilted driver setup and exaggerating the swinging up and through the impact area to improve the launch angle a couple °'s.  The simulator session numbers this past week showed I need to do a little work in that area.

Still doing lots of chipping practice off the basement carpet, working on low point control and rhythm. I've found feeling like my head is on a swivel really helps me rotate and not just use the arms.

Also been battling the cold temps and snow to get out on the patio with the Planemate for a few minutes. With that, I've been working on better rotation through the ball. Hopefully the roads clear up, and I'll be able to get to the range this weekend. Winter storm closed the range this last Saturday...

Thanks. I need to speed up the swing a bit once I get accustomed to the changes. But generally i am a smooth tempo swinger.

Beat another winter storm system up to the range this morning for two buckets before it started to get gross. Took a handful of the freshly-built Sub70s and my Cobra wedges. Shop owner was nice enough to bend the wedges two degrees more upright for me (to one flat from stock), which solved longstanding issues I've had with hitting the ball right and off the toe.

Session wasn't as good as two weeks ago, but I was very impressed with the Sub70/MMT combo. Picked up a bit of club and ball speed across the bag and more distance as a result.

Major focus today was again to feel like my head doesn't move forward on the downswing. I have the feeling of having my head on a swivel and that seems to work well. I did pretty good but still need a lot of work. When I get it right, however, the contact is awesome and the bit of early extension I fight goes away, as do the hooks!

I did struggle a bit with the two long irons I brought (4 and 5). When it's this cold (sub 20s) I have a hard time getting my hips loosened up, and I start to compensate for a poor turn by getting the club too far behind me on the backswing. From reviewing video it also looks like I may have started to let my hands creep too far in toward my body at address. Oh well. I did hit some great shots overall, and from 8 iron to my wedges I was extremely happy.

Registered for the Districts this week so now it's back to the grind.  Putting is going to be the focus for the foreseeable future after putting 12 miles on my snowblower this week 🙂

I just ordered the PuttOut and plan to use my downtime working on my stroke and pace.  Anyone who has one chime in, I would love to hear your thoughts.

the PuttOut is great, it really makes you focus and becomes very addicting to try and hole one out. It can be a lot harder than you think, and after you sink the first one sinking the next one is just as addictive. I've found that is has really helped me hone in on my pace and also my path. It shows you what you can get away with while rolling one up but not getting it to stay, but also what you are working towards.

100% agree.  I did not expect it to be as challenging and now I am glad to be wrong.  More motivation to work harder and improve my putting.

Not sure what your preference is but I do find it helpful to add an extra layer of info with making a few lines on the golfball to give feedback on club path and face position

Agreed...that doesn't look like the swing of a 21 handicap golfer.
