Then I wanted more...moved back to the blues to practice for school ball. Next goal was to break 100 from blues. Did that after two more rounds. Next goal was mid nineties..hit that in about two more rounds too.
Then yesterday I was going to break 90, had a horrible day with 98. Came back out today with the motive of redeeming myself and to break 90. Shot an 87!!
I'm just wondering if I'm making good progress and setting good goals? Should I do anything different with my goal setting? Please let me know..I would love to hear from you.
I will put it this way, you are at the level of golf were you can make great strides. Once you start breaking bogey golf, 90, it gets tougher. The reason is, making parts consistently is tough. So, I would tame your expectations on the fact that it will take longer to get the same gains you have gotten already. The primary reason is, there is a limit to how low you can shoot, so the closer you get to par golf the tougher it gets to maintain and get there.
Great job so far, keep it up. Just have good expectations and keep at it. You came to the right place to further your goals.
