Goal is to play an 18/month and hit the range twice a month. I don't have a score goal yet, but would like to start with consistently shooting 90's.

I would like to successfully make it to the US Open. I've come up short the past 3 years! Missing the cut by a minimum of 3 strokes.... So close

I have had to update my goals. Since I have been swinging well, and hitting the ball solidly, my biggest disappointment is my scores. Usually, I average 30 putts round, and this year's number is 35. 5 shots is a lot to lose in 18 holes. It is not that I am putting terribly. The real cause is that I did not join any one course, and am playing many courses that I am not very familiar with. So, I have not read the greens well, and am trying to get adjusted. In addition, I need to "make the time" to practice my short game more. With my wife having surgery and "complications due to surgery", much of my time in the last six weeks has been spent with her, so it is understandable that golf has taken a "back seat". She is fine, now, so I have to bear down and get back on track if I want to salvage what is left of this season. Here in Upstate New York, our season is only 7 months long, so losing a month and a half is a "huge hit".

Make the jump from a casual almost-scratch golfer to a competitive golfer with tour potential. I figure if I got here without ever taking the game too seriously (its too fun to get stressed about!), there's some potential (I hope).

I'm making pretty good progress with my Goals for 09, but really would love to sort out..

* 3 Irons off a tee (I struggle with these)
* Sand/Bunker Shots (Constantly costing me 2 Shots, as I can only just seem to get it out or either over power it past the Green)
* Driving (gain more distance, and straighter drives).

If I could fix these issues by the end of the summer and continue the way that I am playing right now, I'll be a very happy golfer.

I'm coming back from a long break and don't expect to get good this season, so I have some fairly modest goals for 2009:
  • Get back to consistent ball striking. I want my short game to be the problem, not the rest of it!
  • Join one of my local clubs
  • Obtain an official handicap again
  • Play 20 full rounds before the end of the year, keeping score and stats
  • Plan for improvement in 2010!
In the bag: Titleist 909D2 9.5°, 906F2 15°, 585H 17°, AP2 710 3âPW, Vokey SM 52.08 & 58.12, Studio Select Newport 33", Pro V1X.
Home course: Lenzie Golf Club. Working on: ball striking.

    • We got rained out on Tuesday last year, so we got tickets this year.
    • Waiting for summer break to be over...
    • They'll also continue to operate and grow. Heck, if they get Cam Smith, their "monopoly" argument takes a hit. Which is probably not looked upon as "great" either. I'm not saying it's a big hit, but I imagine gaming the system like this aren't even viewed entirely neutrally.
    • You can place something under the front of that mat so when a ball drops down it bounces backwards into the net. Maybe a pool noodle. Topped balls will destroy that pool noodle though. "A friend" told me that... Also, I don't know how many balls you plan on hitting, but think about getting a pre-net to hang in front of the main net. I blew a hole through mine in less than a year. My replacement net has lasted over 3 years using small nets hanging in front.
    • Yes.  His ball's location was not known.  If we had gone back, I would have had to drop where he had hit from and he would have had to find his ball (which may have been in the water).  He would have possibly had to deal with a lost ball and hitting the wrong ball. I sort of did a rough calculation in my head.  Go back, find the spot, probably hit the green and lie 4 with 2 putts for a six.  Maybe a 5 or 7.  Top prize is a $100 gift certificate.  Plus, if I went back, #4 would probably go back, too.  That would have created a real log jam.  Better to take the medicine, play on, have a good story of what NOT to do.
