1000 putts is indeed a large number, not insurmountable, but at about 15 minutes per 100 putt block, in real time ~3-4 hours each day is now devoted to putting. Will it be hard to keep at it? Yes – it will be draining. I’m confident that I’ll be able to do it.
My muscles are not sore, I feel a slight ache, but I feel that my body should be in shape for this task.
A slight variety in disc textures is immediately noticeable in throwing 10 different putters, I think it will be important to purchase 10 exact discs for this experiment.
The rapid succession of putts has limited my movement in between putts. The fundamentals of my putt are the same, but the motions have become abbreviated. I’m finding this to be a good thing – less movement = less room for error.
Patterns in putting. I did not keep track of how many out of 1000 I made throughout the day. Besides abbreviated motions, the adjustments I made throughout the day were mostly mental – not necessarily being concerned about how many I was making, not making adjustments to my form, but taking notice of patterns and how they related to my thought process. The more I could focus on the goal (a single link in the chain) and keep my mind clear of all other distractions, the more consistent I was all around – cleaner releases, smoother weight transfer, truer flights.
100% at 10′
90% at 15′ – the missed putts were definitely a mental lapse
75% at 20′
55% at 25′ – interestingly only hit 3 the first round and 8 the second round
60% at 30′ – better than 25? cool
I felt the pressure putts, I believe that this game will be a great measure of improvements during this experiment, it takes technique and conquering of the mental game.
