My primary goal is to get under 20 in handicap, shouldn't be too hard, even though the season here in Sweden ends in early september.

Other goals is to get a LOT better att putting and chipping.. Right now the chipping is worthless.

1) Break 90.
2) Drive straighter consistently.
3) Become comfortable with my irons so that I don't chunk an iron shot almost every hole.
4) Along the lines of 3 and 4, develop a consistent swing that I can groove.
5) Play a full 18 holes with the same ball from start to finish. (As far as I can remember, never done it.)

I've only been playing for about 10 months so I've got a long way to go.

1. Play at least 18 holes a month and practice at least 2 hours a week.
2. Break 100 consistently
3. Break 90 at least once
4. Improve on driving accuracy
5. Get my putting average to 2.0

Break par on 9. Then on 18. (Even and 75 is my best so far. I'll get it.)
Learn to hit a wood from the tee again. Havent had to for a while but it's been keeping me from really shooting low scores. (Bought a Nike 3-wood. It can be a consitant 300yd club)
Swing easier (can't get it through my head)
Always hit balls before playing. Hitting 50 balls before I play is the difference between an 84 and a 74.

Just eclipsed 45 rounds played this year and have broken 90 three times, with my personal best coming yesterday when i shot an 87! It wasn't an exciting round though as im changing my swing plane and need to use my 5/6 iron off the tee for consitency for the time being. My problems off the tee continue as well as some ball striking but i was getting up and down yesterday like it was my job. I think my new goal is going to be much more specific and thats to start hitting more fairways and using longer clubs so that i can hit more GIR. My 87 yesterday i hit 2 GIR's

My goals:

practice short game and putting
reduce/eliminate penalty strokes
eliminate 3 putts and reduce 2 putts
consistently hit fairway off tee box
increase GIR
consistent ball striking

if i can accomplish all those goals that should eliminate my implosion holes where i get 6,7 and 8's that drive my score up

    • Yeah yeah but hey it gets better lol    USA have won 3 of the past 12 !!!!!   25% when I went to school, but you’ve conveniently forgot about that. Europe let you win so you keep coming back lol…
    • Lesson 9/25: Some bad things had crept into my swing, and I think I have the tools to fix them. Setup: I was setting up a little to close to the ball. Not sure what precipitated this, but as soon as instructor pointed it out, I stepped back maybe 1/2 to 1 ball and right away addressing the ball felt more comfortable. I've started fidgeting with my right hand grip at setup again, resulting in an overly strong right hand. This seems to happen when I stand over the ball too long, maybe because I am not committed to the swing. Worked on increasing grip pressure with this hand through backswing. I'll need to work on this. Backswing: Need to get a little more depth, but otherwise okay. Might have been I was focusing too much on downswing that I short changed backswing. Nothing major to work on right now. Downswing: Clubhead exit was too much up and out, and not enough left. Worked a bit with a PVC/pool noodle plane thing in front of the ball to get a feel for the clubhead exiting more around and left, and less up, after impact. Might pick up some PVC pipe, elbows, and a tee-fitting at a hardware store, or maybe order a Pure Plane Pro device for this. Everything in the downswing looked pretty good up until club delivery, where I was shoving/flipping my right hand pretty hard. Right before delivery, clubhead was in a good position, but I was still shoving/flipping it closed through impact. Tried out a feel/thought of holding the face open through impact. Initially instructor just had me try to hit the ball with an open face and hit a push-slice way right. Even though it felt like I was leaving the face wide open, the ball was not atrociously offline right. After a few balls of getting used to the concept, I backed off the feel a little bit and was hitting the ball pretty straight. It'll take some work to deprogram my right hand/arm for this one.
    • You are correct, Titleist has really upped the distance on last years TS models and even more so on this years.  The older ones always carried the moniker of being for people who were concerned with shot shaping over distance.  Now a days if you want to sell a driver, distance seems to be the number one concern and it’s good to see Titleist jumping on the bandwagon because they make nice looking driver heads
    • My understanding of "links" is that many people have a different set of criteria. I guess I agree that Chambers Bay and The Kingsley Club are not true links courses. When I hear the term it brings a vision of natural seaside dunes, sandy soil, fast, firm with weather often in play, and options to play the "ground game". Chambers was created by necessity; there is no sea or Great Lake near Kingsley; but both courses offer the same style of play along with most of the other features, and are a blast to play every round.
    • It’s easier to say good morning, tip your hat and keep moving. If they were that so the hole in front sounds like it is there for the taking. (?)
