4. Keep cool and let the past bad shots be just that.. in the past

The main goal is:

- play as much golf as possible!


But, more specifically:

- Get the handicap back down to 8 (or better of course but 8 is realistic)
- More confidence with the driver
- Pay closer attention to posture and stay in a good, athletic position
- Make more 8-10 footers
- Keep the short game sharp
- Play smarter

And most importantly:

- Be fun to play with. Nothing worse than some super-serious sour puss that thinks they're one swing away from the tour...

As the previous poster mentioned... #1 is play as much as possible!!!

But the specifics:

My one and only true main goal for 2010 is to become a better, more consistent ball compressor/striker. I haven't had a lesson in a few years so I am currently doing some research to find someone I trust locally and I plan to take a series of lessons this year.

After the above, hopefully break 80 for the first time!

1. Drop handicap to single digits. I went from 16 to 12 last year, so I think this is doable.
2. Increase driver speed to over 100 mph again and retain control. I started out last year @ 104 but out of control and now at 96 but in control.
3.Continue to enhance short game by learning some new shots around the green.

In Feb I lowered my h/c from 18 to 13.8, have played to it since.

At December 31st, I want to have achieved...

1. A h/c LOWER than 13.5 (sometime this year, Australia is adopting the US handicapping system, so I'm not sure how easy or difficult it's going to be). Don't care what the actual number is, I just want to be lower that I am now.
2. Break 80. My best score is 80, I've only shot it once. (that's 10 over my home course)
3. Get my GIR up to 33.33% (Last 5 rounds 21.11%)
4. Play at least one double-bogey free round.
5. Hit the 9th hole in regulation - 416m (455yd) small, elevated green, often into the wind. My average drive is about 210m (229yd), so I need to hit two pretty good shots to get it on!

1. Get my handicap down from 3.2 to at least 1.4
2. Win my club championship. (Came 2nd past 2 years)
3. Walk on to my university team at trials in october
4. Have a stroke averge of less than 75 for the season
5. Commit to every tee shot on the 18th hole at my course

1. Improve my putting. I'm missing too many short putts, I'm not feeling the putter and subsequently my distance control is terrible.
2. Improve my sand game. I used to get out of bunkers with relative ease, but last year I lost most of my confidence.
3. Break 90
4. Even on a lousy day, break 100 no matter what.
5. Keep my cool and focus when putting on the blowup holes. I tend to give up on a particular hole if my first putt is for double bogey or worse.
6. Beat my Father-In-Law (gracefully). I'm out-driving him and keeping the ball in play, but the putting is killing me.
7. Hit more greens in regulation.

    • Day 205: I was able to squeeze in about 20 minutes work between rain showers. Just focused on transition feels and center face contact.
    • Yes, eventually you learn when to do it in order not to slow down play and still get it done without feeling hurried. I walk fast am am usually the first to the green many times, so that helps too. And by pacing, I simply walk to the pin and multiply by 3 ft/pace. Just in case anyone thinks otherwise. 
    • I did, too, but now they’re apparently trying to walk it back and scrambling to save face.   Deservedly so. Wilson should have gotten one, too, and suspended.   Just to play a little devil’s advocate, could their line of thinking be to hire these types of guys because they “understand” how to be rough without crossing the line? Or that they understand the difference between being physical and having intent to injure? Not saying I agree with it or believe it, but I’m just trying to see it from a different perspective.
    • I estimate first putt length. When I first took AimPoint, we practiced estimating distance because it was part of the mid-read technique. It’s pretty easy once you break the putt into sections visually.
