Your 2011 Golf Goals Official Thread

post #1 of 206
Thread Starter 
Like our 2008, 2009, and 2010 threads, here's the official thread for 2011.

The rules are the same as they've been:
  1. Post your goals personal golf-related goals for 2011.
  2. Please try to post just once, though if you reach all of your goals, you should quote your post and revise them later in the year.
  3. Do not reply to the posts of other people. This thread, like "What'd You Shoot Today," is not intended to be a discussion, but merely a list of people's goals.

If you're looking to recap your 2010 goals, that's over here in this thread.

Re: Your 2011 Golf Goals Official Thread

1. learn to get into the proper stance and alignment. i have a Lot of trouble setting up correctly to the ball. i have to go through a lot of shuffling around to feel like i'm properly aimed and the ball is positioned correctly, and sometimes i'll haul off and swing from what i know is an incorrect setup just to be done with it already. i'm getting better about it, but it's still definitely a huge issue for me.

2. i'm finally starting to drain a good number of 10-15 foot putts, and i would like to make that the norm more than the "i just happen to be having a good day" exception.

if i can just accomplish those two things, i see no reason why i can't get down to a 2 handicap or better.

Re: Your 2011 Golf Goals Official Thread

1. Putt consistently better

2. Become better at/more consistent with using the "big muscles" to swing and covering the ball more

4. Hopefully 1 & 2 will allow me to break 80 for the first time

5. Beat, or at least play well, against my uncles this summer. My uncles and grandfather meet every year for a couple of rounds as sort of tournament. Sadly, my Grandfather has decided to hang up the clubs for good this winter. But they asked me to fill out the group in his place - which is a big honor. My uncles are a little better than me but not too much. I was able to win one of the two rounds we played this summer at a family reunion. Would really like to take home the trophy my first year with the group this summer.

3.) According to "2.", improve my hcp <20, or even <15 (did shoot 85 and 87 last year)

4.) play a round in or under Par on my homecourse (short 9-hole par33)

5.) improve my long iron and 3/4-wood game to reach greens >180m (200yds) consistently

6.) put better (a lot of put training in the living room during the winter, already progressing great)

Re: Your 2011 Golf Goals Official Thread

1) Work on getting my driver more accurate and increase my fairways percentage
2) Continue my quest for bowed wrist at impact which will increase the quality of my ball striking
3) Increase my practice and get more serious than 2010....I slacked off WAY too much and it showed
4) Get my handicap back below 5....hopefully closer to a 2 (I was a 2.8 before starting my swing corrections)
5) Play and be more competitive in more tournaments than the last few years.

Re: Your 2011 Golf Goals Official Thread

1) Find the takeaway that will get my swing on the proper swing plane.
2) Hit off of a firm front leg more consistantly.
3) Stop straightening my right wrist in an attempt to lift the ball and allow my club to do it.
4) Back to Back par.
5) Post a score of birdie on one hole.
6) Play bogie golf and post a score of 90.

Re: Your 2011 Golf Goals Official Thread

Win at least 2 of three CC invitationals I play in next year.

Play and and finish in the top ten state amateur. I don't get to play in it every year.

Get my handicap back a to a 0 Being a +2 currently is a joke, I am not that good. Our clubs rating is excessively high and causes the handicaps to be a bit lower than reality.

Get some distance back with my driver, I have somehow lost 25 yards or more.
