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

Well the mid Atlantic is definitely far from a golf Mecca. It gets cold here too.

Cedar Point in Patuxent River, MD

 

It's got some linksy style holes in and around this peninsula. The picture shows the practice chipping green next to the driving range. They've also got a short chipping green and a putting green so the practice facilities are diverse. From time to time they've even got a launch monitor set up inside the restaurant.

My swing key to make sure I keep my capital Y together until my left shoulder touches my chin. I play a draw so if I keep my arms and club in front of me, aim between first & second and fire through the ball down that line, it's on like donkey kong.

Went to the range with my two girls. I hit a large bucket, sweating through four gloves.

Played a small nine hole today. Wanted to practice irons and chipping.

 

No consistency. Either good irons/bad chipping or bad irons/good chipping.

 

A lot of work to do.

Yeah, isn't that it all too often? One thing is on while the other parts are (waaay) too off.....

Had a bit of an epiphany (no disrespect, Rev)......

 

Was working on chipping and pitching, trying to hit three balls the same way three times in a row with the goal to try to get them to land close together. Changing up shots between groups .. using one wedge, hitting to different targets, eg. further / shorter, higher / lower.

 

So: loosened up the grip - a LOT - last three fingers of left (lead) hand very lightly wrapped around with left thumb and index finger just touching while right hand was almost not on at all ...

 

All of a sudden - and will not be a surprise to any of you pros ;) - the club moved more easily and the clubhead speed picked up .. with the result that the ball was popping up quickly and flying higher and more consistently... Wow!

 

Now.. if I can take this to the course .. especially into the bunkers...!!

Actually went and practiced yesterday. Worked with the DST and trying to get into that good impact position. As well as keeping a more flatter backswing. Results were very nice but I need to get out and do this more

With my sprained ankle all I can do is chip and putt. Today I hit 10 yard chips into my chipping net in the backyard

Worked on my full swing last night after doing 3 wood testing for MGS. I have been struggling with my swing the last few weeks and when I was warming up I noticed that my path is alway in to our even when I am trying to hit a fade. After testing I tried again and really struggled to start the ball on the left side of the target line even with an open stance. I am doing something in my swing that always has the club coming from the inside. Really had to make some tweaks to hit a fade. Seem like my right arm is getting trapped behind me and I am always coming for the inside. Need to figure out how to create space and get my elbow mire in front. Think I am going to go to the range and just work on hitting a big slice that starts left if target.

Today I played Tiger Wood's old Navy course, just the nine holes (full 18 next week).

 

I wanted today to work on my patience and mental game.

 

I had a breakthrough finding. I'm way too impatient and have a busy mind.

 

No more golf by myself. I found me thinking of so many little things trying to figure out the big picture that I was just inconsistent and couldn't get a rhythm.

 

Bottom line is I need to enjoy the game and not press to be great. Improvements will come.

Tournament at my course today, so I spent it practicing my short game; pitches from 20-30 yards, chips from rough and tight lies, and putting.  I'm working on keeping my putter square through the strike using right hand only.  If I do that for awhile then put both hands on the putter, I make more putts.

 

Beautiful day to stay in the shade; only got up to 95* but with 10% humidity, the sun sucks the moisture right out of your body so fast I can hear it leaving my pores.   B)

Day of practice. I have a game at my brother home course tomorrow. So this morning before work I went to work on putting just my routine 2-6 footer.

 

Then just now before I went to pick up my daughter from school I went to work on short game at the chipping green for a bit. Then hit a bucket to fine tune my contact. There a guy next to me hitting irons, he's a decent hitter as you can hear it. It was an awesome sound. So I started on my warmup routine.

 

Then it's on. I started with my 9i hitting some nice penetrating shots after shots trying to make solid contact. It's almost like we are alternating the shot so we could hear the impact sound it made. Then I switched to 7i after about 20 shots, we both starting on the wedge.

 

I like the competition thing we had going it was really motivating.

Had another lesson today and worked on the driver. I unfortunately didnt get the first 15 (average 240 carry) or so swings or last 10 (average 280 carry), but these middle ones were us working on a few setup tweaks. This included closing down my hips and shoulders a little and making sure to keep a little weight on my left foot and not letting it flare out or up as I tend to do. Not swinging hard. Just nice and smooth.

 

We didn't do anything with the swing itself yet. The setup tweaks helped getting me to a point where I'm hitting up on the ball about 1.5 degrees and swinging a tad more to the right instead of my initial -2.0 degree and swing to the left.

 

I can say that the difference of where I was striking the ball on the clubface, the feel, and results were incredibly different. Gaining 40 yards of carry is tremendous. Lots to go to make it where I want to be, but it's a great start.

 

Kicking myself for not getting pictures of the rest of those numbers, before and after. 1d12859bedcfd85301c94aee84f62ca6.jpg

I was a few years ago yes. I was swinging better back then. It wasn't so good on my first few swings before making some tweaks today, but then I started hitting it pretty flush...with some bad swings thrown in there.

I played a practice round for our upcoming City Championship.

 

Spent most of the round picking different clubs and starting lines of tees, identified widest landing areas and best angles to attack greens, mapped out greens and areas to avoid being "short sided" to suspected pin positions

Hit the range on my lunch break to capture some swing footage. New "tripod" performed nicely. Will try to clean up and post footage tonight/tomorrow on Hudl and the swing video thread.
