Golf Goals for Remainder of 2013
TheSandTrap.com Top Picks
After shooting 72 (personal best) I feel like I've overcome a huge mental barrier to consistently shooting in the 70's - which I probably only did 2-3 times a year for the last 5 years. 5 of my last 9 18 hole rounds (non-combined) have been in the 70's, so my goal is to keep that ratio of shooting at least half my rounds in the 70's.
I just go into golf a couple weeks ago. Bought my first set of clubs on Friday. Through the summer I plan on working on my mechanics, getting to the range to learn the characteristics of each ball, and generally learning everything I can. Once fall rolls around, and morning time temperatures are tolerable (I live in Tucson, its 10:15 am and already getting close to 100) I want to start getting in a few rounds and establish a handicap. From there, 2014 will be about chiseling that handicap down to respectability.
Much like the OP I would also say avoid the dreadful 3 put but I've accomplished that a couple times now.
So to have a more realistic goal, since I've never shot par for a full 18 holes I'll aim for shooting par for 9 holes and continue the back 9 so I shoot in the 70's. I think that's a realistic goal seeing that I've shot 2 over a few times this year. If I can get rid of my yips on my short game I should be golden, if not I'm going to watch that handicap keep going up.
Sounds like a great goal to me! The wife and I just got a 3.5 month old foster baby and sleep training is definitely in the works!
My main golf goal right now is actually off the course. I lost 65lbs last year to get from 284 to 219. My new goal is to work my way down to 205 by September and work on some strength training. I'm a very short hitter of the golf ball (7 iron goes about 140) and I would like to get my smooth 7 iron distance up to about 150.
My 2013 goals are
1. to break par but still not able to , just close close a few time
2. Get putter fitting with Edel - just got it done last week and now waiting for my putter to arrive . Should be any time soon . I also found out that my aim is okay ( during the putter fitting ) and that helps my confidence.
Things that was not in my 2013 goal but acquired
1. Bunker shot - improve significantly and able t put very near to the hole ( green side bunker )
2. Swing Change - Adopt Rotary Swing methodology and i m hitting more consistent.
What is for 2nd half of 2013 ?
Break Par !!
