What Are Your 2013 Golf Goals? Official Thread - Page 8

post #127 of 177
My only goal this year is to have a round without a double bogey or worse.

Last year my goal was two pars on each nine. After I did that it was a birdie on each nine.

Last week I broke 80 for the first time and my HC went to 9.5. But those are not my goals... I think those goals are too general. I think specific goals (which will improve those benchmarks) are more useful.

Break 80
post #129 of 177

To break 90 on a pretty regular basis.  I've dipped into the 80's here and there - and it is awesome.  But I have a few terrible mistakes each round that keep me over 90.  I really want to be an 80's golfer.  It has been my goal for some time.  But instead of actually getting it into the 80's more often - what I've done is stop hitting over 95 almost every time.  Which is good too.  But I really want to be an 80's golfer.

1. Break 80 this year. I shot 82 three times last year.

 

2. Have a shot at par on every hole. Every hole is a stretch, but having a look at par most of the time is a goal.

 

3. Hit my long irons that I put back in the bag in place of hybrids well

1. Get to the range at least once a week.
2. Play at least 10 rounds.
3. Break 110, hopefully even 100
4. Play 9 holes without losing a ball.
5. Play a full round without losing a ball.

Break 90 again.  It's been a dozen years since I've done it, but this year I may have the time to practice more, since my daughter is really looking forward to playing a lot of golf this spring and I'll be able to bring her out for par-3 and excutive course rounds this summer, combining my desire to play more golf with my desire to spend time with the family.

I would like to:

1. Lower my handicap to under 5

2. Increase my driver distance avg from 260 to around 280.

3. To consistently hit my 4 and 5 irons more solidly.

My first goal was to complete my set of clubs that I am happy with. I have done that and my goals for the year are as follows.

 

1. Get out more often.

2. More consistent driving

3. Play consistently for 18 holes.

4. Try to break 85 and lower handicap

post #135 of 177

My goals for 2013 have changed because I changed jobs and I won't be able to play nearly as much this year.   I still hope to play at least 100 rounds, but 80 is more realistic.   Because I won't be playing nearly as much, my handicap is sure to rise.....I hope I can keep it under 5.

 

My revised goals for 2013:

1. 80-100 rounds played

2. Keep my HC at 4 or under

post #136 of 177

My goal is to shoot in the 90's regularly.  Also, I hope to improve in just making more solid shots. 

post #137 of 177

Primary goal is to get to 10 handicap or lower. I've been floating around 13 for the past couple of years, got some lessons set up so I'm determined to get down lower this season.

I've decided my 2013 goal is to be show cased on a 5SK video produced by Erik/Mike/David!  lol.

Goals for 2013:

 

1. Practice short game (outside of rounds) at least one hour a week. I work next to two golf courses and a great practice facility, no reason I can't make this one happen.

2. Break 90 more than once (have never done it)

3. Average under 2 putts per hole for the course of the season (more short game goals)

4. Play a full 18 at least every two weeks

 

Most of these are reachable with PRACTICE - which I have always taken lightly. I can't step out of the car on Saturday and expect to play well after I haven't touched the clubs in two weeks. Practice, practice, practice makes perfect (or at least better).

Just broke 90 for the first time today! If this becomes a regular thing, I'll have to update my #2 goal to 85.

  • Forget about the glamour, perfect my short game.
  • Play 18 holes every week.
  • Make a birdie at least three times this summer.
  • Break 90
post #143 of 177
Comfortably hit the ball well enough ( fairways and greens in reg) to score under 75. Even if I don't end up there after the round just feel like the shots were struck w ell.

Really work with the 64 wedge and use it well.

Work on taking a full parallel swing. ( I punch most all shots including my driver at times)
