Your 2011 Golf Goals Official Thread

206 posts in this topic

Like our 2008 , 2009 , and 2010 threads, here's the official thread for 2011.

The rules are the same as they've been:
  1. Post your goals personal golf-related goals for 2011.
  2. Please try to post just once, though if you reach all of your goals, you should quote your post and revise them later in the year.
  3. Do not reply to the posts of other people. This thread, like "What'd You Shoot Today," is not intended to be a discussion, but merely a list of people's goals.

If you're looking to recap your 2010 goals, that's over here in this thread .

1. learn to get into the proper stance and alignment. i have a Lot of trouble setting up correctly to the ball. i have to go through a lot of shuffling around to feel like i'm properly aimed and the ball is positioned correctly, and sometimes i'll haul off and swing from what i know is an incorrect setup just to be done with it already. i'm getting better about it, but it's still definitely a huge issue for me.

2. i'm finally starting to drain a good number of 10-15 foot putts, and i would like to make that the norm more than the "i just happen to be having a good day" exception.

if i can just accomplish those two things, i see no reason why i can't get down to a 2 handicap or better.

1. Putt consistently better

2. Become better at/more consistent with using the "big muscles" to swing and covering the ball more

4. Hopefully 1 & 2 will allow me to break 80 for the first time

5. Beat, or at least play well, against my uncles this summer. My uncles and grandfather meet every year for a couple of rounds as sort of tournament. Sadly, my Grandfather has decided to hang up the clubs for good this winter. But they asked me to fill out the group in his place - which is a big honor. My uncles are a little better than me but not too much. I was able to win one of the two rounds we played this summer at a family reunion. Would really like to take home the trophy my first year with the group this summer.

1) Work on getting my driver more accurate and increase my fairways percentage
2) Continue my quest for bowed wrist at impact which will increase the quality of my ball striking
3) Increase my practice and get more serious than 2010....I slacked off WAY too much and it showed
4) Get my handicap back below 5....hopefully closer to a 2 (I was a 2.8 before starting my swing corrections)
5) Play and be more competitive in more tournaments than the last few years.

Win at least 2 of three CC invitationals I play in next year.

Play and and finish in the top ten state amateur. I don't get to play in it every year.

Get my handicap back a to a 0 Being a +2 currently is a joke, I am not that good. Our clubs rating is excessively high and causes the handicaps to be a bit lower than reality.

Get some distance back with my driver, I have somehow lost 25 yards or more.

    • Go to ebay and look up the Taylormade Burner Bubble. Not much money, but seems to fit your parameters.
    • I'm a bit biased because I'm working with the folks at GAME GOLF, but I've never really had a problem with any of the tags or GG hardware once I silicone glued them in (and some grips don't need that - my PURE grips are softer than many as they're pure rubber, so they can use the help). GG tags don't affect the swingweight like the Arccos tags. That's a big one IMO. There are other reasons but you listed a lot of them. The stats and whatnot in GG will be getting better, too. They HAVE the data, after all.
    • Not how you finish a club spin, need to work on that, yo  
    • I agree with all of the others. Get a proper fitting. For me? I was using the SLDR driver 12* with a Sr Shaft. I was hitting it a good 160 to 175 yards.  I went to the Titleist Thursday event here in Sacramento. It is where Titleist gives you a free fitting session for what ever you are thinking of replacing. I wasn't thinking of replacing, but was curious. I went in, he watched me swing the club, said try this "catch the rain" (turning my hands over at the bottom of my swing). Ball went a little farther. 
      He said - here try this. Then try this. Shafts, head, more shaft information. (he brought, all, ALL, of the shafts that are being offered for the clubs) I was fitted for the 917D2 with the Blueboard S+ 70 in Regular. I regularly carry 230 yards with roll out (some days more than others.) coming in between 20 and 30 yards more. I hit the M2, Ping G, M1, King Cobra F7 (can't remember which one), ... I hit everything that Haggin Oaks had in their super shop (we call it the library - you check em out and return em). 6 months later I am still hitting it straight (no on purpose shot shaping for me) and long...long for me. (I am 55 yrs young). I hit my 3wood roughly 235, my 7wood about 220ish. Go get fit at a reputable fitting place. You will not regret it.
