Holy **** I'm laughing out loud reading this at work.......while my 12 yr old son works on 25ft putts in the back of my shop!! Occasionally, my co-workers roll back to drop off a job and will catch me practicing putting or just trying to get my drive sequence down. I'm glad we have a support group for this.....

^Almost spit my beer when I saw this. I'm (mostly) a woodcarver making hand carved picture frames. The prep work before carving, and after priming the wood involves lots of sanding. One day I was sanding a coat of primer on a rather large frame and realized that I was essentially using my legs hips and shoulders to get my right arm to repeatativley 'practice' a straight line, level plane reach back and pull through. I chuckled to myself and looked crazy in front of my co workers, but I really think that has helped my game. All I could think of was 'wax on wax off' but without 'rounding'

Office jockey here. I use one of the Moosejaw pocket discs to throw around. Since its cloth I don't have to worry about breaking anything or making noise and it helps working on staying on the same plane.

I also practice my form when I'm waiting for the copier to get done printing. Luckily none of my co workers have seen me, and accidentally got back handed walking into the copy room, lol.
