What is your personal goal for golf? - Page 11

post #181 of 289

1.   Setup perfectly to the ball every time (i.e. good ball position, hands lower to promote good posture, proper grip and weight balance)

 

2.   No mental mistakes (choose the right club and the right shot). 

 

3.   Actually hit the ball (been losing about 6-12 shots per round due to chunks and mishits). 

 

4.   Commit to every shot because every shot counts.  I shot 103, 106, then 89 in the first 3 rounds of the year by prioritizing 3 & 4 (and the 89 included someone threatening to pull a gun on the golf course.)

New goals for 2013,

 

to become a wedge aficionado

 

100 yards an in, its killing my game. I don't mind the ever other miss putt for par. that's going to happen when your scrambling, but to waste multitudes of shots around the green is a problem. I want to get a good wedge game so i can get better birdie opportunities.

Enjoy spending time with buddies on the course. Practice on the range so I don't get too frustrated with not playing good. I often forget that golf is a game, and my competitive nature has my focus in overdrive. I forget to enjoy the game.

To play smarter.

To stay out of trouble.

To get consistently good at 60 yards in.

 

I firmly believe this would bring my scores down 10 strokes and I'd have a smile on my face when I complete a round.

I commit to practice and work the plan. Then when I go play, I only focus on hitting each shot, not my swing.
post #186 of 289

To start hitting my driver this year. Have been hitting my Ping Hybrid off the tee because I feel confident with it, and I like the shortness of the shaft. Feels like an iron to me.

Goal for 2013 is to get my handicap into the single digits. By the end of the season I hope to be carrying a cap of 8 or lower.

Play Cypress, play the Old Course on a Sunday and play the Old Course "backwards".

To be able to hit the ball where I want it to go, reliably.

Used to be wanting to shot 72 when I was actively playing golf. It never happened. I never managed to break 80.

 

Now that my daughter, aged 6 is starting to play golf, I just want to help her to enjoy the game and spend more time with her. That would make me happier than shooting 72.

My lifetime goal is to be able to shoot even par someday.  I've been +1 through 13 holes a couple times before falling apart.  And I'm not talking easy courses.

post #193 of 289

My lifetime goal, hmmmm ...

 

I would like to get to the point where I can break 70.  So, basically, I'd like to become a scratch golfer.  Likely?  Nope.  Possible?  Sure.  And it's definitely a lot of fun to try!! :)

Current goals shoot under 80 within the month, I'm getting very close (shot 83 last week). Get into a D2 college in 2 years, or D1 if I'm lucky. 

post #195 of 289

Dedicating myself to getting to scratch. I know I have the game and talent, just a matter of putting in the time and practice. Moving back to Virginia (from Colorado) at the end of the week and as soon as I lock in a full-time job, I plan on picking up a course membership so I can get serious about my game again.

To get through 18holes without looking like a complete idiot to start.
post #197 of 289

#1 to be more consistent

#2 to break 90 and eventually 80

 

#2 will come if I can get #1 finished or at least on it's way to completed.

If that's your goal I have two comments:

 

1) You're going to have to be able to shoot consistently in the low 70's on the courses and setups you are most likely playing on now.

 

2)  I wouldn't be posting on the internet, using my name as my screen name, and using an avatar of (presumably) my underage self drinking a beer.

 

Even though it's commonplace to drink a lot while in college any college golf coach is going to probably pass on a prospective recruit if there are signs that there could be off the course issues during your 4+ years under their watch.
