What/How did you practice today?


Recommended Posts

Today was a great day, again. 50’s and clear skies with some sun. First 8 iron felt great and looked great on the face. Today was more about getting feel back, being that it was the first swings since last fall. Half the bucket was 52* pitches to 40 and 50 yards.

Working on keeping a little flex in the trail leg in the backswing. All the instructors i have worked with have wanted me to lose some flex in the trail leg in the backswing, but at some point i went overboard and got to the point where on some swings, my right leg would be so straight that my knee is locked or even bending inward (i have flexible joints). Case of overdoing something or going to extreme can start to cause other issues. 

I have to be careful because that knee locking/bending inward is actually a normal feeling for me. Not related to golf, when I am standing, my natural standing position is for my knees to bend inward.

That was probably a terrible description, so see pic below to refer to what I mean. If you asked me to stand up from sitting in a chair, my knees look like the picture on the right, but maybe not quite that extreme.

Another beautiful early spring day for us here in Michigan. Boss OK'ed me leaving a little early to hit the range near my house. They just opened yesterday, so lots of fresh grass to hit off of. Really nice to get off mats and also to be able to film face on.

I was glad to see/feel the turf interaction with the Sub70s seems to be fine, and my swing wasn't too bad either. After hitting solely off mats since December I was a little worried I was maybe getting away with some bad swings, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

I mentioned filming face on - I set a new ball speed record with my driver today and caught it on film. My head is a lot quieter than it used to be, but I still have a ways to go. The shot below shows how poor my turn can be, there's so much more potential for speed there. I hit some really great baby draws with the driver today, but when I don't make a good turn into the hip my path comes down left and steep and I start hitting wipey fades or I hang back and hit high-faced hooks.

Overall, a great range session, and excited to get out tomorrow for at least nine holes.

... Just a FYI but the new 2021 TP5x is really improved. Softer feel, more wedge/green side while maintaining low driver spin. I see why so many PGA players switched to the TP5x from the TP5 because the previous TP5x version was pretty hard feeling and lacked a little wedge/green side spin. I have to think someone with your swing speed and game could really take advantage of this ball. 

I might have to give those a whirl as Pix. That was the one thing I disliked with last years model. Although my MTB-x are treating me quite well.

Before going with Snell, I was gaming the TP5X and really liked it.  Haven't tried the newer version.

Practiced what I was working on yesterday, today.  Signs of good progress, but even slight swing changes require repetitive efforts.  Playing tomorrow and hope to take (at least some) of the new swing with me.  It's definitely giving me a better ball flight when I execute it properly.

After some range time with irons and a bit with the driver, I moved over to the chipping area and worked on distance control, trying to land the ball on the point selected.  I still tend to not be aggressive enough and will often leave it short of my intended landing area.

Wrist injury seems to be healed and  tonight I took out my full bag instead of just wedges. Even brought along my new Cobra F9 driver. Working on grip, flying right elbow, and swing plane  Hit the ball real well with the occasional head scratcher. To be expected since Ive been injured since Dec. Pleased with driver and excited for more time with it.  Starting lessons on the 24th and hope to solve my over the top.

I did that a lot on the course today!  If I weren't playing tomorrow, I'd be spending a few hours chipping and putting.

I have been working on my short game for a while, especially the finesse wedges and chipping and lately distance wedges.   Committing to hitting the shot is crucial and while my technique is much better,  the bad shots come when I don't commit and make a less than aggressive swing.   Work on the mindset and the shots will improve.

Yes! That's actually in one of Raflewski's videos. He uses it for when a ball is backed up onto the collar between fringe and rough. The putting chip is so close to blading anyway, I'd just have to move the ball slightly more heel side. The biggest difference would be that the ball would just come out a little hotter.

Not sure why I didn't try it sooner. It eliminates a lot of variables. I seem to be OK with the higher lofted wedges, but I imagine the ball would want to stop and move right just a bit (for a right-hander) due to the slight cut spin that gets put on the ball.

Fingers crossed that my practice facility opens up in the next few weeks as well. I still haven't decided if I want to purchase a short game membership or not. There's a huge putting green and pitching area that's included for free, but there is a private, dedicated short-game area with multiple greens, targets and hitting areas (both turf and mat). Not sure if it's worth the extra money... with unlimited range balls I can always practice pitching out onto the range.

Used the putt chip a lot today. Chipped in for birdie with my gap wedge. And hit a putt chip to 5 feet from somewhere between 30 to 40 yards out with a 4 hybrid lol.

EDIT: This was out on the course, not practice, but wanted to come back to this thread because we were talking about this.

Yup, I used it extensively during yesterday's round with my 8 iron. (Actually one of those was near the end of the video I posted on the post about the round.) Much easier to know how the ball will react/release. Going to use it going forward, for sure.

Funny.  I use to be an 8i putt/chip player for years and years and only recently switched over to a 56/12 for many of these same shots.  The rest being the Texas Wedge if the grass is fairly evenly cut and not shaggy.  It's taken some work adding this to my game and I now find myself adding that to my pre-round warm-up shots.  Better accuracy and distance control more often than not.

Sometimes i don't understand golf. After my round, was experimenting with grip strength, specifically my trail hand (right hand). I kept my left hand strong (2.5 knuckles or so), which is normal for me. If I weaken my right hand (not super weak), just weaker than normal, I start to hit small push draws, straight, or a slight push. If I strengthen my trail hand, I hit it every direction, but most likely to be a pull fade or poor contact. I would have thought that a weaker right hand would most likely lead to fades or slices, but didn't hit a single fade or slice with the weaker right hand.

I understand the ball flight laws, and theories on grip, but either my swing is just reacting differently than typical with the weaker vs. stronger right hand, or I am missing something in my thinking.

... Good to have those shots in your arsenal. I have come to believe the more short shot options you have the better. I have always used my 58/60* for all shots around the green with great success but that technique has proven problematic here in the desert with very tight Bermuda lies. Down grain the ball just doesn't spin quite as much and if the green is down grain too the ball just rolls out way more and hard to predict. The opposite problem when into the grain as hitting it 1/100th of an inch fat will come up way short. That same shot a little fat with a slightly open face is money on bent fairways. So I have been using my Gw and running the ball through the Bermuda fairways can be sticky and sometimes bounce the ball off line. Gotta keep experimenting with Gw-8 iron until it becomes a staple in my short game. 

... I find it interesting that the ball rolls forever on these tight hard desert fairways which mean reaching many long holes in 2 BUT the short game calls for a completely different arsenal of shots so it will continue be a learning experience. Just when you think you have this game figured out ...

... You are making it harder on yourself if your hands don't match on the grip. Your arms will be fighting each other and inconsistency will usually be the result. Try experimenting with changing your left hand to match your right and I think you will have better results.

... You are making it harder on yourself if your hands don't match on the grip. Your arms will be fighting each other and inconsistency will usually be the result. Try experimenting with changing your left hand to match your right and I think you will have better results. 

Thanks. I will try neutral/neutral. 

Strong/strong for me leads to every direction and a lot of fat shots.

Interesting. Thinking about my grip I am probably making things worse. My right hand is neutral to weaker and left is strong (about two knuckles)
