Spend 6 hours a week working on my short game. Hit 100 balls at the range 3 times a week, play 54 holes a week, and shoot 80 at my home course here in Fort Collins.

1) I would like to be more consistant with shaping my shots.

2) I would like to reduce my handicap to a 7 or 8.

3) I would like to play a round with 36 putts or less.

My only goal for this year is to start playing again!

Back in January, I had surgery to reconstruct my anterior cruciate ligament. For 4 months I never touched a golf club and only started doing some short game work at the start of June.

Last week I progressed onto hitting short irons and it was a huge relief / boost to discover the swing was still there. A bit tentative, but still there.

I'm planning to progress to a full round of golf at the start of July

I just started playing this year. I currently shoot around the 104 - 107 mark consistently. I did get a 99 once. My goal this season is shoot in the low 90's and play as much golf as possible.

Goals:

1. Gain confidence in my driver
2. Play at least 4 rounds a month (tough with work/school)
3. Re-Establish my handicap

I am sure the list will grow, but that is what I have at the moment.

    • I tend to follow my surroundings and flow with the course (if I have played it before) and don't bother with how long I take to setup. If nothing is rushed, then I am not rushed. I don't sit in the car too long or take a large amount of time getting my gear ready. I judge accordingly, but I really don't like to be rushed. I pay my hard earned money to play just like the next person does. It doesn't take long to setup my equipment and put my shoes on. I am always reasonably well prepared before I even get to the course so if need be, I can be quick on the go. I believe it is all about respect to people and fellow golfers in general. Of course there are those that carry great disrespect for others and could give a rip about anything which usually bring challenges to what may be a good golf game.  Some weeks ago, me and a buddy played a course and there was a foursome that were in front of us at the first Tee that actually warmed up and stretched on the Tee box delaying those behind them! There were no less than two groups waiting behind us. After quite a wait and seeing this was not going to change, we decided to start on the 10 hole and while we drove the cart over to 10 (we could see #1 tee box from 10) and got set up on the tenth hole we could see they still had not finished. What is really bad is we tee'd up and drove our balls and two of them were still not finished!
    • One thing I will add is if your swing speed is 80-82 with a 6 iron, I doubt u hit it 196. Hit outside and check some more places for launch etc... but don’t do anything to the clubs yet.
    • I’m a believer in the arms being responsible for a lot of swing speed, but yes. It feels a lot less ‘movement’ was able to generate good power. However I began to think that my actual SS wasn’t really improving. It was the quality of strike. My conventional swing can be all over the face with an in to out and out to in path ( more likely out to in). With this swing I was almost always in to out and near the middle of the club face. So I think I was just hitting better shots. Again, JV would never provide any data from himself nor any students showing increases in SS.  I don’t have a problem with having a 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 swing. It’s the ‘10’ different that seemed ridiculous to me. I’ll never use a 4i to hit the ball 20yds.
    • i saw your post on Golf wrx from November 30.  You might have wanted to add that according to what you wrote there you bought the clubs already.

    • It probably takes me around 5 minutes from the time my car pulls in till I can be on the tee and ready to hit.  I never wear my golf shoes and drive.  Takes me a minute to wear the shoes, then about 2 to 3 minutes to get my cart and bag set up.  Then another minute or so to get all the stuff out of the bag that I need. However, I am always fairly quick on the course, and have never found myself to be the cause of latency in any group I am playing with. I like to get to the course at least 15 minutes before I have to tee off to give myself at least 5 minutes to warm up and stretch before I start playing.  I find it really makes a difference to my game.
