Things you enjoy most about golf: The competition with myself, constantly trying to better myself, taking those risky shots 220 into protected pins or par 5's over water.  Having competition and beers with the boys is the best part of golf by far though, nothing beats a 2 on 2 match play on a beautiful sunny day..

 

Goals for 2011: Consistency within my drives, improve my mental game, dont become discouraged about bad shots, instead think about getting up and down for par.  And to win my club championship most importantly, ive had the lead after the first round these last 2 years, and shitty second rounds cost me both tournaments

post #135 of 192

Age: 56

 

Height: 5'6"

 

I'm from Sugar Land, Texas

 

I've been playing for 48 years with a 10 year break that ended this past April

 

Best Score:  78 at PGA West par 72, 72 on a Par 68 Woodruff in Joliet IL

 

I play at public courses in the Houston area (we have some good ones)

What I enjoy most about golf is hitting a shot exactly as I visualized it, especially in a pressure situation.  I'm not that good but I really don't have problems with nerves on the course so I like to apply pressure to others when I can.

 

Goals for 2012 include continued improvement over 2011, a more consistent iron game, and improved putting.  I miss too many from 3-6 feet.

Where are you from: New Jersey

How long have you been playing: Two years, but really only one year since I missed 2009 with injuries

Best Score: 88

Favorite Club in the Bag: I really do like all of them.

Golf Books/DVDs that have helped you: Five Lessons got me a foot in the door but honestly the Sandtrap.com has really given me the clearest mental picture as to what has to happen in the golf swing in order to be successful long term.

Where do you play: Monmouth County Park System

Best Course You've Played So Far: Orange County National in Orlando, Florida.

Things You Enjoy Most About Golf: Executing a shot exactly as I planned it.

Goals for 2K10: Hmm, tough question. The obvious answer is to lower my handicap as much as possible. A more specific answer is to build a repeating swing that is fundamentally correct from setup to finish. As far as the short game goes, I'm going to re-read Stan Utley's Art of the Short Game, get out and practice his teachings, and then hopefully turning it all into muscle memory.


Age: 28

 

How Long Have You Been Playing: Four years, but really only three, or like two and a half, since injuries have seriously derailed me too many times. So far, I've dealt with a season long back injury in 2009 (pre-stack and tilt days), two wrist injuries, an intercostal injury, an elbow injury, and very sore knees.

 

Best Score: 82

 

Favorite Club in the Bag: right now, the seven-iron and the 5-wood.

 

Golf Books/DVDs that have helped you: The Stack and Tilt Swing; The Sandtrap.com

 

Things You Enjoy Most About Golf: Playing well

 

Goals for 2K12: Single Digit Handicap

Forgot that my favorite club in the bag is my 56 degree Lynx LXi Sand Wedge.  I can hit it from any lie and am pretty good from the sand with it too.
