1. Get confident through the bag with my new, flatter swing.

2. End the year as a single-digit handicap.

3. Get a whole lot better about keeping up with my stats after each round so I know how to allocate my practice time.

4. Statistically speaking: 60% FIR, 65% GIR, under 1.9 putts per green for the year.

And, 5. Don't embarrass myself at the club open this year like I did last year, when I did my Tin Cup impression on the 17th hole.

Play more golf, improve my driving, improve my 3-wood, improve my hybrid play.  Whats really holding me back from scoring is my struggles with getting off the tee and hitting a good 2nd shot that gets me on the green or sets me up for a makeable wedge shot.

1. Get an official HDCP
2. Play some tougher courses
3. Practice effectivley ( stole this from Bo The Golfer )

I'm brand new, my goals are

* consistently shoot under 95

* meet more players in the area

* Shoot a few eagles... all I've hit so far are a few birdies

post #80 of 177

Hmm, 2012 goals were 

 

a) Break 100

b) Break 90

 

I succeeded with the first, and almost the second (best round was 91).

 

So 2013 goals are

 

a) Break 90

b) Break 85

c) Break 80 (This is a bit of a stretch goal, I don't know if it's achievable, but I'm gonna try!)

I want to become a cat 2 player (12 handicap) by early summer and hopefully single figures by the end.

swing impouvement,

 

on the BS I need to have my left arm much more in line with my target and my wrist hinged upwards more correctly as of now it is bent towards my back (cupped i think you say).

 

If i can do that this year after 6 years of repetitive mistakes its a miracle.

1. Break 100 more often.
2. Make better contact with my irons on the course. Some reason I make good contact at the range most of the time, not as much on the course.
3. Continue straightening my drives. I improved greatly last year (for me anyway)
4. Golf more!

So I paid the yearly membership fee yesterday at the local golf club. $480 = unlimited golf and use of facility (cart not included)

Here's the updated 2013 goals list:

 

1) Play at least twice a week

2) Practice effectively at least 3 times a week

3) Sharpen my game around/ on the green

4) Drop HC to a lower single digit

5) Play in State Amateur Tournament

1. Break 80
2. Revamp putting stroke
3. Introduce new putter line to market

I don't really know what goals to set. I hope I'll be able to play some golf, but I'm farther from a training facility than before, so it could result in less practice.

If I can play well enough to stabilize at around 10-15 handicap, I'm happy.
post #88 of 177

In 2012 I achieved all of my goals except one, and so that is my #1 goal for this year:

 

1) Become a single-digit handicap.

2) 50% GIR for the year.

3) Shoot an even par round of golf OR the course rating, whichever is higher, in any given round.

 

If I accomplish any of these (or am on pace to do so, for #2) by mid year, I will throw in another:

 

4) Get up-and-down 50% of the time

Alright this will be the 3rd time I've revised this. I think this is the final revision.

 

1) Play 18 holes at least twice a week

2) Practice effectively at least 3 times a week

3) Sharpen all aspects of game from tee to green

4) Become more consistent

5) Drop HC to lower single digit

Shoot in the 80s.

Putt better.

They both go hand in hand.
