What/How did you practice today?


Recommended Posts

Had a decent range session this afternoon; working on the latest drills from my series of lessons .. including getting the hands deeper in the backswing and straightening out the right (trail) arm coming into impact.

Still have some left-right dispersion issues (with more left misses now it seems) but starting to see more solid hits with nice ball flights.

Been working mostly on irons and with my improving swing now I need to learn my new distances!

There was a bit of a headwind so also started to experiment with trajectory - using PW only at this point - and trying to flight the ball low, then medium, then "regular" to the same target. Semi-successful 👍

Rainy day here so putting in the kitchen is on tap. Really enjoying the Puttout trainer over these last few weeks, definitely glad that I bought one of these. Consistency is definitely improving and it is still fun trying to get that “perfect putt”.

Spent an hour a so in my indoor range last night, and maybe again tonight.  Wish I had about 10ft more in the garage to be able to hit driver.  I have been going through my set up, almost mechanically trying to make it a natural event.  When I take the extra time, the ball striking is always spot on.  Contacted a few of the local ranges, that also offer lessons.  Seems the ground is so wet many either haven't opened, or recently closed back down.

Got outside on lunch and resumed my official super speed training. I took last week to loosen up and get my swing back a bit and resumed my logs today.

I’m a little disappointed in myself for not finishing week 14 over the summer... I had two sessions left in the level two protocol.



My max was down 7mph from my final swing of training last time but I don’t doubt I’ll be back there soon. Sounds like I’ll get another week of SuperSpeed before my planemate gets in.

Some putting work with a 36” ruler working on. Start line. Also used it to understand my stroke and I think I have a possible slight arc. Time for a new putter 😛

 

also did some planemate work using the divot board and then just the divot board. Realized I struck the board better when I told myself just before to swing nice and easy, otherwise I’d get too ahead of myself and chuck everything

With this gorgeous weather being able to swing every day is really nice. Today just tried to crank up my speed. Was 104-109 with my 4 iron (I dare not swing driver outside yet.

I only say this because I’m jealous AF I can’t swing that fast. We need to try to get something setup soon with this weather! After y’all are settled in at the new shack!

My shoulders hurt just thinking about trying to move that fast... probably my back too, and every tendon attached to every muscle included in the golf swing... ouch.

I’m going to see what I can do today... with my 4 iron.  My guess is 97 tops...  shooting for 122 though, that should motivate me into swinging the 97 that I’m thinking.

Those are some legitimately crazy numbers regardless of how uncontrolled you were. 

My best 4 iron effort was a little short...

I legitimately thought I would be 100 or less even maxed out.  I do not see what distance this would equate to on course... if I did, I would be in the trees on the left 99% of the time with a pull hook.
