I only have a few major goals for this year. Being that i am posting this in may, ill give my goals i want to have accomplished by the end of this year.

1. Win a tournament
2. Find a sponsor to cover my entry fees and travel expenses.
3. Consistently make money on my mini tour im involved with
4. Be in position to start 2010 playing golf fulltime, for my career.


I know #4 sounds very far fetched, but honestly to me its not. I practice daily, and have a full practice facility at my disposal to use daily. So I wont have any issues improving my game, and working on it daily.

I really want to make golf my career. I might not make it all the way and tee it up on the PGA Tour, but in the state of Florida, there are so many different mini-tours now that it is very easy for a person with a good golf game to play full time and be successful. And by being successful on these mini tours, its only going to open the door for me to move my way up and work towards teeing it up with the big boys

I never swung a club until ten months ago. My goal is to try and break 100 before my "rookie year" is over. PB is 106. I have 2 months left to go.

I have never swung a club untill less than 7 months ago so my goals may seem meager. I play on a 9 hole par 31 muni.
1. Break 50 (I did this today, my first time out ever, with a 44)
2. Birdie a hole
3. Beat my little brother who got me into the game.

2009 Goals:
1.Buy a quality driver. This is done (with my new Pinemeadow BK)! Up until now I have never paid over $40 for a driver, and this was $120.
2.Re-grip my clubs and with oversized grips. This is done! I had not re-gripped my clubs in several years.
3.Learn to hit good shots with the new grips & driver. In progress.
4.Shoot at least three rounds below my lifetime best of 85. My norm has been 92-94
5.At least one birdie per month.
6.Continue teaching my three grandsons to play golf; we have done one round this year so far.

1) Get my HCap down
2) Fix my swing so I dont hit right all the time (I dont get my wrists around on time)
3) consistantly break 100

I've been playing for 1 year or thereabouts and have a 27 hcap. I always seems to hit irons to the right of where intended and I often slice my drives really really far to the right. All to do with my wrists a pro told me. I have a baby due any day now so I may not make these goals, I will try though!

1) Become consistent, in both my shots and my scores
2) Shoot under 100, and stay there (I have 2 rounds where my penalty shots kept me above 100)
3) Upgrade my irons, I currently use a really old set that my wife got for $10 at a yard sale.
4) Get a real handicap.

3 is not that important to me, it is not the clubs that are holding me back. A new set would just be nice.

To lower my handicap at least 6.0 if possible. Just got my new sticks after hitting an older set of Nicklaus and Pings for the past 7 years.
