What/How Did You Practice Today?

Recommended Posts

Now that travel for the year is done (no holiday travel!😀) I jumped back into speed training.  My baseline speed with my driver as 108 if I swing for the fences (and probably won't make contact) and 98 with the swing that I use to find the fairway.   The goal is to nudge that fairway finder speed and control up toward the max speed.  We'll see where we are after the first month.   As I've read I showed an immediate jump in swing speed (that's temporary for the moment) with my fairway finder being at 103 and my swing for the fences at 112.  Should be interesting to see how it goes.

I've also been spending a lot of time putting.  It used to be the strongest part of my game but has tailed off this year even with practice.  I think a large part of that has been mental (reading Rotella) with me putting a lot of pressure on myself and focusing too much on my mechanics.  I've started just putting around to build my confidence mixing drills in with casual putting and trying not to put too much pressure on myself to hole the putts. I've been heavily focused on inside 8 ft and in and it's had good effect on my stroke which now feels much more natural to me.  It's also had the added effect of making lag putts seem less intimidating since I'm much more comfortable inside six feet.  Should have focused on this all along.

I've been busy with work trying to get things taken care of before my vacation week and then had the kids all week so I haven't hit a ball since the last round I played. Best I could do today was to set up the net in the yard and take some swings. It was a very uneventful practice session. Basically hit 3 or 4 half punch shots, then one full swing trying to work on feeling like the arms stay back as long as possible and allowing the rotation to bring them around rather than trying to create all the speed in my arms. 

On an unrelated note, I feel like I definitely have a visual connection in my swing that I have to figure out how to get over. The tendency of my brain is to "hit" the target I'm looking at rather than swinging through and sending the ball to a distant target. The fact that I'm usually looking at the front tip of the ball translates to my body trying to release the club and bottom out the swing right at the front of the ball. This can have varied results depending on the day. Today I just messed around with finding a spot that was a different color to focus on about 4 inches in front of the ball. Felt weird to swing and not really see the ball, but in some ways it helped. Hopefully things will cooperate and I can get out on the course next week while I'm off work.

Range work today and then played a few holes (7 to be exact).  My scrambling game was in check... good thing because I was flaring everything (I mean everything) to the right.  Got home and went straight to me mat/net.  I believe I have it worked out... but it was ugly.  Still managed to play those 7 holes in 2 over.  But only because my pitching, chipping and putting saved me.  

MGS Forum Virtual Turkey Shoot rounds scheduled Tuesday and Friday... may try to squeeze in another round on Wednesday.

Working in the garage last night on getting some more width in my swing - mission successful on the width (before on the left, last night on the right - notice the additional space between my trail hip and hands at club shaft parallel). Unfortunately it didn't add the speed I was hoping to gain with the driver, but it did help a lot of other things in my swing. It did add a few MPH with my 6 iron so hopefully it will come around with the driver as well at some point.

A little more speed training and a lot more putting today.  Going to the good range where I take my lessons tomorrow and to play a couple sim 18's with the Garmin to focus on positive visualization and course strategy

Finally got back out to the range after having to take care of a lotta house stuff...

..but did get in a few minutes with an Orange Whip here and there during the past almost two weeks .. focusing on what Martin Chuck calls "structure" in the arms..

..well at the range today it made a big, positive, difference! Much better contact on full swings - including with driver and with a fairway off the mat (hit it straight three times in a row .. sounds silly but that's a new PB for me and FWs 😄).

Still (always) also trying to work in all the good things accumulated from lessons over the last two years .. feel like some of that is starting to happen now, too.

Thinking the next area to build on includes getting wrists and hands working better throughout the swing .. and getting a little more consistent path plus face angle at impact...

Work In Progress!!!

I stopped crouching behind the ball for putting. Do better when I start drawing a line from the cup to the ball. Often for short putts I draw a line with my eyes from 2feet beyond the cup back to the ball and then stroke the ball.  Try not to take too much time between moving my eyes back and stroking the ball  If I’m look like I’m taking time it’s just to figure out my speed.   
chipping seems to be different.  I look for a spot to land the ball   I actually have to stand on the side and have full view of both ball and hole and image the ball either dropping into the hole with wedge or play chip and roll with lower loft club   So I walk from the side and start my routine from side rather than behind the cup.

Range before gym this morning. Irons are heel side strike and some hosel rockets. I think I need to move back a smidge to compensate. When I strike well it was a nice fade but distance not there. 
 

short game practice was good getting chipping feels. Lag putting good. Learned I need better control to leave more short. I was blowing by more often than being short by 3 ft

This is a great comparison pic!.  Your original post about this position in the swing got me thinking and looking at my own takeaway.  I had some really nice drives in the last few rounds with trying to feel myself in the position on the right.  In fact, heading out to my mat now to work on it some more.  It feels a little clunky with the irons... but I think that is because I'm not transferring my weight correctly with the irons.

One thing I noticed in my swing is that you do have to be careful not to throw your pressure out over your trail foot without recentering or, worse, swaying to get the movement. Drew Cooper talks about feeling the pressure start to move back to center by P2/club shaft parallel in backswing, and for me that's a great queue to keep my pressure from doing that.

I tend to get so "rotational" with my arms stuck to my sides. Feeling a lot of room in my setup and getting this width has drastically improved my path/face relationship. Looking forward to continuing my work on it.

Every coach that talks about recentering talks about it happening at that and no later than p3/lead arm parallel. After that it’s too later. The thing is at p2 there is is no more pressure going into the trail leg

Be careful about moving back as a compensation.  When you do, your brain thinks you are too far back and tells your body to move toward the ball on the downswing... causing more OTT and more hosel rockets.  Monte told me to move closer to the ball, and the body will tend to stay back during the downswing as you rotate.

When you THINK you need to do something, you probably need to do the opposite.  Golf is funny that way.

You are either getting steep in transition and coming in with an open face while early extending or you are still coming from to far out and have an open face as you swing across the ball. 
 

It’s more than not likely where you are standing but how your body is moving and that you are getting away from the ball in the swing

Right to left putts are a problem for me.  I have accepted this   Not sure why.  But I have overcome this I have read 360 degree. Do a long walk around the cup   Find my spot and once I find my spot   I don’t look at the cup just aim the spot.   Sometimes my eyes will want to look at the cup like in chipping.  If that happens I close my eyes to putt.

I went to the range this morning to try and do some drills… Well, I got frustrated and went back to the tried-and-true drill I got two years ago. I put a ball down, then I put my two feet in line directly behind the ball, on the target line, then from my rear foot, I measure one foot back toward me and place a ball there. On the downswing, the club head has to pass over that inside rear ball on its way to impacting the ball In addressing. This gets my club on the correct plane on the downswing, and keeps me coming from the inside, fighting my tendency to get steep. Also, since I early-extend and stand-up so often, it helps me make a more rotational swing. It’s a drill I got from Tyler McGhie and after doing it awhile I really start to have much better contact, and body movement.

Went to the range today to play with the Garmin.  So far my observations are that it's pretty accurate as to flight path for me if I'm properly aligned with accurate distances that drop off in accuracy as you work into the top of the bag.  Can't tell if that's an algorithm thing or a range ball thing.  It doesn't have a setting for range balls like the Mevo, so maybe a bit of both combined with me not hitting the ball as far as I think I do  🙃 

I played a pair of sim rounds today as I've been hyper focused on swing/putting/and speed training lately and wanted to take it easy.  Turns out that it was excellent practice anyway and it'll be something I do regularly.  It brought some realism to the range.  There weren't any wasted swings as each one was to a specific (simulated) point and distance.  I played my home course and found it pretty interesting that I shot what I normally shot -- losing strokes in exactly the same way on the sim as I do in real life.  Distances were surprisingly accurate as I hit many of the same shots from the same distances I do when I play for real.  I played a second one at a much tighter course I know (Quail Hollow Boise) and also found that pretty accurate.  The best part was that in a little over an hour I 'played' two 18 hole rounds of golf and got a ton of course management practice in.  I originally bought the Garmin aiming to use it for gathering data and understanding my misses and shot dispersion, but I think the 'playing' practice is going to be just as valuable.  Pretty neat little tool.

I've been going to the range after work a few times this week and I can't even explain how happy I've been with the results. It's been the weirdest feeling for me to step up and not have 100 thoughts going through my head. Somewhat related to this, I think it's time to cut ties with the coach I've been working with for the past year. Nothing against him as an instructor, but it has been causing too many problems in my game. I've purposely not taken any video the last few trips to the range because I know that from a technical side my swing has flaws, but I'm getting to a place where I'm accepting that my swing is my swing.

I talked Owen into coming with me to River Heights to play holes one and nine before the sun went down.  It was cold in the mid 30s but no wind.  We each took a couple of clubs and a few balls and off we went. 

Owen hadn't touched a club in nearly two months since he'd had a major flare up of GERD.  Poor guy dropped five balls on the tee box as he hit shank after shank, lol.  Mostly expected given his layoff, and he finished one of the balls on nine with a chip in from the rough just off the green.

I took a couple of the Titleist prototype balls and my new PXG 3 wood I'm still trying to figure out.  This time around, it worked.  After my first tee shot bounced off a tree, I hit four beautiful balls on the two holes.  My couple of full approach shots with my PW were really good too.  Really close and on the green was a struggle but in the conditions I'll take it.

Been practicing my setup in the garage and it was nice to see some ball flight.  Wouldn't mind doing this again as long as the snow holds off.
