Odd times for working on your swing

Recommended Posts

Got a chuckle out of this:

So the question: what are your odd circumstances for working on your swing? A favorite of mine: rocking the baby to sleep is an excellent time to work on my weight shift. 🙂

The living room in my place upstate looks like a golf shop. Putting green and a hitting net are in the living room. Up at 5 am to ride the bike and get in some practice. I also have a putting green in my office at work that I roll putts on during conference calls. Not to mention the weekly staff meetings at Top Golf in our new hotel.

Not too uncommon to find me doing mirror swings in the bathroom at work. The mirrors are placed perfectly so I can get a front-on and side view!

On the elevator. I do this all the time and have for years. Of course when I do - do this.... I'm alone. LOL

Honestly I think it helped me unwind some old muscle memory I had to get rid of a few years ago.

my wife sees a mirror - checks hair and makeup

I see a mirror - checks backswing and right side loading.

 

result - my hair and makeup are a mess 😄

But I bet your wife can't golf as well as you...

Priorities! 😆

So you're working at the Catskills place! I was always wondering where your upstate hotel was! 

As for me, I'm just starting to put in some work and exercise when I have to go down and put some more wood in the wood stove in the basement. Then 10 Medicine ball throws from each side against the wall, and a few practice swings.

That is the place. I don’t technically work for the property but the parent company, but my office is at the resort.

I almost always "practice" while smoking at work in the parking lot. No club just practicing my move. I am sure people look at me like I'm an idiot.

My home office is next to our bedroom which has an area rug with lines on it. Helps me with imaginary ball alignment when I practice my swing.

Hah funny video! The surgeon I can totally believe - hey maybe it's good pre-op prep for him? - but that dude on the Great Wall?!?!? C'mon!

      Took about a year, but now have officially flipped my bag for the first time. Year before, I began inundating myself in golf knowledge and equipment. Learned how the swing path and club face work together, how to shape shots and have made great progress. Now I know exactly what I'm doing, and most often know why. So far I've seen my handicap drop significantly, (15-17 down to 5-8). Technically at this point, I'm a 5 handicap, but that was one score out of 5 (5, 18 hole rounds. I've played quite a bit of 9 hole rounds) and I believe I'm closer to an 8 realistically. But maybe I'll be lower and near a 5 this year with thMP-18e clubs in my bag fully updated and have more experience with each club.
      Updated my driver and 3W shaft as well after getting them last year and I think that will be a game changer and lower my scores by hitting more fairways. Drastically improved my iron game with getting fitted and buying Mizuno MP-18 mixed set. Can shape my shots and get very consistent distances, so I'm pretty excited for this year. Wedge game improved quite a bit too and now have rounded out the SM6 set completely. Also really excited as I've been rolling the new Taylormade TP Black Copper Juno nicely in the basement, and getting very consistent rolls and forgiveness. Never have really been excited about a putter, but the black copper is sexy, and it performs.
      Looking to get on simulators a few times this winter, heated driving range a few times, a big golf show to attend, Taylormade demo fitting, and plently of swinging and putting in the garage and basement. Looking forward to early spring and am optimistic for my best golf yet.

      Trying to not get overly excited for Jan golf trip and hoping that mother nature doesn't deposit her first snowstorm on us in New England around my departure date.
