What/How did you practice today?

Spent a good hour working only on 5,6,7 irons, to get rid of a few bad habits that I've picked up lately.

My bad habit is leaving myself a yardage where I have to pull 6 or 7 iron. :)

Taylor Made Sim2  10.5 (Opened 1 click) Ventus Blue 5  R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

Edison Wedges 54 and 59 KBS Tour Graphite 80's

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Swear, give me a 4i into a tight green and I'll make it look easy, but give me a 7i into a big green and I find somewhere on the planet to hit it!

Same for me only it's any iron vs any wedge. Don't know why but that 75-100 distance boggles me no matter how much practice I put into it.

Today's line up:

 

15 minutes of 15-75 yard wedges

 

30 minutes of mid irons/long irons

 

30 minutes of fairway metal

 

45 minutes on the putting green

 

Working on a major swing change, but when I do it right I get great results. Just need to ingrain it to muscle memory.

Wish I had that kind of time to dedicate to practicing. Also wish I had someplace close that has a great practice area. I do know of someplace, but I doubt I could get a key to the MGS testing facility.

My practice area really isn't all that great. But the range tee box is 60 yards wide. I pace off the yards and use a range bucket as my target.

 

Every once and a while I go to to the other course theirs an actual practice area, but it's full of A-Holes, so I try to avoid them at all costs. It's always full.

So you've gotta hope the range is totally empty? You ever hit it in the bucket?

The range is usually empty, if not I park at the end with the bunker and work on that.

 

And yes, just once I hit the bucket, anything within 5' is good, but I'm upping the ante to inside the handle of whatever club I used. But I have dunked two chips from 15 yards dead in the hole on the practice green, no bounce, just bucket in the last few weeks.

Guess it is all about timing to get the empty range. I Never thought about using the range that way but it is great for working on pitches

My course is a muni and play is heavy all day long, even during the week.  The range always has someone on hit.  However, the other end of the range is used for lessons and while it has quite a bit of use this time of the year, there are periods of the day and certain days when it's empty.  Nobody goes there except those that have had lessons, and I asked if I could practice there.  It's OK as long as it's empty.  The advantage of that end of the range is you have access to uphill and downhill lies, not just flat.  My course has a lot of uneven lies!!

I "worked" from home today and got bored like 2 hours ago. Went to the range to hit a bucket to work through some issues with my driver swing - they close at 2pm on Mondays. Oh well, walked to the putting green where I need way more work anyways, and put in 45 minutes working on 15+ footers and 20 minutes inside 10 feet. Kinda had a aha! moment once I started focusing on the grass in front of the ball, where I would look at the ball previously. I might be on to something with that one.

 

You guys look at the ball while you putt, or in front? Behind? Up in the air and pray?

I started looking ahead of the ball on my intended line last year. It has helped greatly. I just focus at that point and if I hit that point I did my job.

Works better for me, too - replaces focus on the movement of the putter head and stroke mechanics with focus on your line.

I started pulling a Spieth and looking at the hole or halfway to the hole. Frees up by atroke a lot.

Front dimple for short game, back dimple for full swings. That's what I was taught anyways

That's EXACTLY what I feel like it does for me. I used to concentrate more on going straight back and through, really made me realize why I miss so often!

That might be a LITTLE too much for me lol. I might shank it hardcore.

I definitely recommend at least rolling a few like this. I read somewhere on the net that when you watch the ball, your head naturally wants to follow it immediately. I always thought that the pros were pausing deliberately before looking at the ball go towards the cup (not saying everyone putts like this, just an observation) and maybe this is the case? I know Tiger used to pause, because I used to try to copy him when I was young, just because he was Tiger and that was cool.
