What is your personal goal for golf? - Page 16

post #271 of 289

I'd like to get at or close to single digit handicap. Right now I'm not having much fun at all golfing so I either need to improve or quit. I don't have the mentality to play if I continue to play at the level I'm at.

My goal is to get to the low teens (score low 80s from the low 90s/high 80s) this year. The goal is get to 3 keys with any club fitted to me, and to get my putts down from 38 down to 32/33.

 

My son's goals is to get to high 70s before the start of the next golf season. His disappointing loss into "CIF second team" has him inspired to practice more than the usual 2 hours a week during the off season. He got a par 5 552 yard birdie start and progressively scored worse on every hole till he finished the 18th "defeated" with a 96 (74.4/134), 6 OB approaches cost him 12 strokes, he hit 12 fairways. He feels that course management was the main reason for the terrible score. His swing is good, but he needs to translate that to good ball striking and shot shaping. He is also allowed to use a rangefinder, so that will be on the to buy list.

 

Good news, is that both of us are inspired to shoot much better now. I am inspired so that I can be reasonable competition for him during our "fun" rounds together off season.

My goals are to find a consistent full swing and to play as much as possible. I think I could one day play to a 5 or 6 handicap again.

My next goal is to break 70 and do it in a tournament.   Get Hdcap under 3 this year.

my personal goal for golf is to win a points championship trophy in the A flight of the amateur tour I play on.ive won 4 tournament trophies while in B flight but A flight is lot harder.was  promoted to A flight right after taking over lead in points in B flight so couldn't win the big trophy.I would also like to win one of our two day major tournaments for a bigger trophy and eventually be national champion in my flight at end of year on our tour.

My #1 goal is to enjoy the day and my friends regardless of the score ... My second goal is to shoot in the mid to low 90's ... Anything lower is a bonus ...

My goals for this year.

 

1. Stop hitting the ball "fat"

2. Have consistent distance

3. Get used to my new putter (In retrospect I should not have gotten rid of the old one) The counter-balanced putters feel a little odd, and I constantly leave it about 6 inches short.

My goals are:

 

1. Enjoy the day and just enjoy playing the game. :-D

2. Meet new golfing buddies. I've changed jobs and lost touch with the people I used to play against.

3. Lower my score.

I'd like to shoot around par consistently.
post #280 of 289

My goal is to get down to 18 handicap this year, started at 30,1, currently 20.1

post #281 of 289

At the start of the year I said get below 3 on my index but it appears I'm struggling just to maintain my current 5, My driving has become too erratic for the course I play and 1 bad shot can turn a par into a triple very fast where I play, I know in a few more months the native grasses will die off opening up the course some so I think if I can improve my tee shots some over the next few weeks I should give myself  a fighting chance to reach this goal, a lesson appears in the cards for sure, I just need to make sure I have time available following it so I can work on the things I have from the session.

New goal: Be able to play this year.

Bummer about the shoulder. Hope it's not the rotator cuff.

 

Which resort? Hope it was worth it. Get well.

I mean there are so many things I would love to accomplish in golf, but one that stands out is that I want to beat my dad. My dad has beaten me every time we have hit the links and it gets under my skin sometimes. I know I can beat him, I got lots of practice in the off season so I'm ready.

post #287 of 289

Accuracy and consistency in 2014. Lots more practice this year.

post #288 of 289

Join a club near my job and play 3-4 times a week.      This will help my game a lot (I hope).
