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".

goal is to shoot even par this year and also to qualify for individual STAC for my school (averaging under 5 strokes over par for nine wholes throughout the school season. If you do that you go on to a tournament)

learn exact yardages for my clubs
get a new driver/ball (with fitting)
shoot consistently in the 70s
practice consistently (5 days a week in the morning & at lunch)

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!

1) 50% driving accuracy
2) Shoot 49 or better on my home nine-hole course
3) Find a set of woods that I'm willing to stick with for the next three-four years
