What/How did you practice today?


Recommended Posts

Hit my whole shag bag from between 50-75y. Most were at 75y. Used all 3 wedges and hit a variety of flights each. Direction control was pretty decent but I had a hard time getting the distance right. About 3/4 of the balls are long.

 

This thread is a good idea to help document practice. Maybe I'll be able to upload one with a blanket-sized cluster one of these days.

Went today with my 56* on lunch. Had a little bit better distance control but worse direction. Felt much better from 75y than 50y so I guess I need to spend a whole shag bag between 30 and 50 next time.

 

Man it was hot though. Worked up a huge sweat and will probably be stinking up the cubes around me when I get back to work.

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

Yeah on the Navy Base. Just drive like 10 minutes from the front to the back of the base to get to the course.

Omg. WTH happened to my grip pressure. I was so occupied with other things and strings together pretty good rounds lately. My brother was complaining about his heavy wedge, I told him all supposed to feel heavy because of light grip pressure.

 

Then today at the range my clubs felt light. I knew my grip pressure crept up. So I spent about an hour to get it back on track. My distance and crisp contact came back consistently. Thank god.

Yesterday I played Navy Destroyer course in Cypress. Tiger's course growing up.

 

I practiced patience and course management. Instead of trying to make the amazing shot, I made the smart shot.

 

Ended up with my best played round ever. I have a long way to go but I am moving forward. FullSizeRender.jpg

I worked on my putting. I mainly concentrated on my lag putting, but my main focus this season has been to try and hit every practice shot like its a tournament. Go through my entire routine and look and plan the shot like I would on the course. It takes a little longer and I don't hit as many shots, but it seems to be paying off for me.

Been working a lot on my takeaway and forearm rotation through impact. Been struggling a lot with the driver - high and right. Trying to get myself in a better position going back and then working on hitting a low draw (something my instructor has been working with me on) so that I can more easily find the middle ground.

 

Sometimes I'll practice with a wedge and make sharp abbreviated swings as if to hit a knockdown just for feel. It's definitely helped me flight the ball better and slowly translating to the driver as well. Getting a much better ball flight (height) with the baby fade that I prefer to see.

 

It actually worked so well last night during work league that I hit probably my best driver ever on hole #1 - Short Par 4 that requires good position down the left side if you want an open green.

Hit the range today to work on a few things from my lesson. The driver setup changes have been huge. I've been adapting them to my other woods, hybrid and long irons as well... experimenting I guess.

 

In my Lesson we worked on getting my angle of attack up from about -2* to 1.5*-2*. To do this we pulled my right foot back half an inch, closed my body a tad, and started with the club head a couple inches behind the ball. My goal was just to swing and try to swing a little bit right.

 

Let me tell you...the first 10 swings I took with my driver during the Lesson averaged about 239 carry. My middle ones are pictured here. My last 10, which I'm kicking myself for not getting a picture of, were carrying 279 on average.

 

We didn't change the swing. Just the setup. It's of course not perfect yet because it's not what I'd call an easy peasy change, but the next day out I did carry 2 tee shots (I had to hit a second to see of the first was an accident [emoji39]) on a 280 yard par 4 into the left and front green side bunkers... And I've been hitting it pretty well since with numerous bombs. Scores and handicap should be coming down... Just gotta practice and trust it. Feeling really good though... although I'm trying to curb the excitement...

 

All was good on the range today and hoping to play 18-36 tomorrow. 1040fc2e7bf3758151d83ca9e2586d7a.jpg

Putting was on the cards today for my practise because I have changed the flat stick for the first time in years.

 

So i just swapped my putter over from a Scotty Cameron Newport mid slant to an Odyssey White Hot RX with a Super Stroke slim 3.0 grip and i have to say i am very impressed! Playing off low single figures at the moment and i reckon i am going to be more consistent and save myself a couple of shots a round which will get me closer to the magic scratch mark again!

First range session with the 900 Tours. I wanted to take the opportunity to see if I could hit long irons, so I ordered them in the set. Let's just say I'm selling an M2 hybrid 4. I was even able to hit the 3i with decent success, the 4i was just getting spanked long and straight. First shot with it was like 200 carry oh what a feeling! IMG_20170725_181238.jpg

Practice paying off! In the last 18 holes that I've played I managed 67% FIR, 56% GIR, and 33 putts (most putts were well over 20ft or had significant break so I'm perfectly happy with 33) and only 1 3-putt.

This is actually quite fun. You can generate an enormous amount of spin. 30-40 yard pitch shots with the 56°, engage the bounce and sneak that blade under the ball.
