My golf goals for the 2009 season are to make it back to the Florida State Am and Mid-Am. I missed the halfway cut at the Am and I know I can do better this year. It's going to be at TPC Sawgrass so making it back is a priority for me. I made it to the match play round of 16 at the Mid-Am and I know I can do better than that also. Last year I exceeded my expectations by making it though the qualifying as the medalist at my quali site and getting a 14 seed after the stroke play rounds. I won one match before losing to the eventual finalist. I also would like to play in the Amateur Match Play and place in the top ten at the FL Mid-Am Stroke Play and Public Links Championships. If my schedule permits I want to win a major tournament on the golf channel amateur tour after finishing 2nd a few times.

Generally, I want to become more consistent. I need to maintain a level of play throughout the summer rather than the peaks and valleys that I have been going through. This means more focused, better quality practice and improving my putting. The mental game is an area where I can improve as well.

I admire acomplishment in golf, how old are you and how long have you been playing? thanks in advance for your reply. good luck in your future golf tournaments, you sound very focused and it sounds like its a matter of time before you reach your goals.

Thanks for the kind words!

I'm 34. I'm a late bloomer when it comes to golf. I started playing at 15 and walked on my High School golf team as a senior. That's when I became serious about the game. Moving to FL in 1997 afforded me the opportunity to work on my game and consider the PGA Program as a career, but once an old Canadian pro told me that CPGA really stands for "Can't play golf anymore", I turned to another career to make ends meet. All I need now is someone with too much disposable income to take a chance on an old wannabe like me so I can live the dream and give it a shot!

I'm just getting back into the swing of things (pun intended) after not playing for a few years.

1. Strike the ball with consistency. Even if I don't score well, I want to get to a point where I make solid contact regularly, especially with my woods and longer irons.

2. Establish a real handicap and work to improve it by the end of the season.

3. Not stress so much when I play poorly.

4. Have fun and get some exercise.

I'm not a salesman for the golf channel or anything, but they have an online service called game tracker that you might be interested in. You can track your scores, stats and handicap. It keeps greens hit, fairways, putts, etc and can get really detailed. It's a great way to focus your practice on what really needs improvement. http://www.thegolfchannel.com/core.aspx?page=35000

Get driver back under control (seems to be a yearly occurance)

Become a consistent 2 putter

Have fun and don't get worked up when I play terrible.

My main goal is to feel confident enough in my game to take my PAT. Otherwise my goals are get to a 4 handicap, beat my 5 handicap boss, help my buddy get good enough to try the PAT with me and in the fall my student/buddy starts college and I have made a pac with him to get him good enough to get on the traveling team for the college (Fort Lewis).
I would also like to break par for 18 holes but not counting on it.

___ Beat JF in a match-play format at his home course.
___ Beat JF in a match-play format at my home course.
___ Put together a composite notebook (shot strategy, best distances, club selection, specific yardage, etc.) of all 10 courses I play regularly.
___ Practice an average of 3 days a week starting as soon as the snow melts.
___ Win 65% of league points
___ Play in 2 tournaments (one charity, one other)
___ 70% of fairways from tees.
___ 70% GIR.

- Break 80 on a daily basis, last year I had dozens of rounds at 80 or 81 only breaking that mark a handful of times
- Win all-conference for the high school team
- lower my handicap from a 7.5 to a 3
- Hit the gym to gain strength and flexibility
- Play more rounds of competitive golf ( its a whole different ball game when the heat is on)
- hit more GIRs averaged only 5-6 a round when I start hitting 9-10 a round my scores will drop
- MENTALLY stay in the game don't let my temper ruin a round think positive because there is always another hole to change my round for the better
- In the fall I want to walk on to SJU golf team!

    • How? 🙂 Day 14 – Moving or Touching Loose Impediments or Touching Sand in a Bunker
    • If I am understanding this correctly, I've been able to, for over two and a half years now, move stones in bunkers, as long as doing so doesn't move my ball, same as I can do on the fairway or in the rough?   I either missed this entirely or forgot about it.   
    • It was explained to me that they wanted people to remove stones, but not to give them so much freedom that they  could just go messing about willy nilly and moving their ball. So, what they came up with did that.
    • Previously the LR caused a stone to be treated like a MO in all respects. Now the rule doesn't.  Why not?  Why shouldn't the Rule simply deem a stone in a bunker as either a LI or treat it by Rule as one? A safety conscious player could incur a penalty for being safe about a stone but not a walnut.
