The quest for a better ball strike. 

I've seen variations of it out there, Hank's version, who would like to join me for a better game August?

I'm very interested to see how this progresses and would be all over it if I wasn't on vacation while in between houses for the month of August. Would really like to see if there are any drops in scoring that happen or unintended consequences of swinging with no ball or feedback.

If there is something wrong with your swing....repeating it 100 times a day will only make it harder to fix. Without seeing the results of ball flight, they may be the worst swings you would fix immediately on the course.  Hard pass for me.

This was my thought as well.  Practice swings may be exercise, but without knowing that you're doing things the way you want to do them, it seems like it could be counterproductive.  You'd be better off with 30 or 40 practice shots, with feedback of some kind (launch monitor, video, ball flight).  You might be better off with 15 or 20 minutes of no-ball slow-motion drills in front of a mirror, rehearsing specific changes, combined with occasional live practice on a range.  I don't like the idea of practice swings as a swing improvement method.

It'll be interesting to see how it goes.  I used to take tons of no-ball practice swings growing up, working on what my teacher was teaching me.  

I'll probably hit birdieballs for at least some of these practice swings.

I thought this would be referring to *hitting* 100 shots a day.  That would make a big difference.

100 swings only sounds like a good way to ingrain bad swings.  I agree with those above.

I started today, did 50 practice swings this morning. 

Went out and played 18

Just did the other 50 practice swings, my right shoulder is a little sore, but I felt pretty loose during the round earlier.

It is not much of something wrong, is more that Ive been feeling tight overall, and I'm trying to get to loosen up a bit, as well as working on developing a consistent delivery. 

But I get what you mean, practicing bad habits can actually get them to become worse.

I appreciate the feedback, eventually I want to get it to a point where I can hit a bunch of practice balls on a Net at the very least, right now is not something my practice set up allows me to do. 

I'm going to look into the slow motion drills with the mirror in mean time.

Unfortunately, the area I have to practice right now, would not be suitable even with the birdie balls. 

But as soon as I can I'm setting up a better practice area, with a net and hopefully something that can allow me to get some feedback of each shot.

I would love to hit 100 balls a day, with different clubs, I'm working on getting the appropriate set up for it.

I remember watching the old Haney Project on the Golf Channel, I’m pretty sure he had Rush Limbaugh and Michael Phelps do the 100 swings a day drill. I think he had Rush do them with his Plane Finder teaching aid

I'm switching between clubs and the skilz gold flex, making sure that I'm hitting each club in my bag at least a few times per session.
