Not sure if I posted here yet or not but my main goal is to break 80. I got my clubs fit over the winter, so I hope that helps. First time out I shot a 107 with a birdie (my main problem was getting off the tee). The next round (Easter Sunday) I shot a 90 with 2 birdies and 1 eagle putt on a par 5. I got new woods in between the two outtings and dropped 17 strokes, amazing.

So hopefully with the purchase of a new driver to have a full set I will be breaking 80 in no time!

2013 Goal:


Single digit handicap

Started playing last fall.     Bought a local muni membership & expect to play 2-3X per week (just not sure my body is going to hold up - I'm finding out the golf swing isn't easy on this old, ok middle aged body).     By years end, I want to be a solid bogie golfer.     Everything is lining up, just gotta eliminate the fat iron shots & 3 putts ...

2. Bring my GIR's up to around 5 through 9 holes. (Its about 3 at this point.)

3. Make it into the top 6 players of my high-school golf team in order to play in the county championship. (I am starting to play in the top 6 after making mjor improvements in my play but now i have to make sure I can play well consistently)

4. Golf a lot!

1. Broke 100 already so I am going to change this goal to break 90.

Everything else stays the same.

1) Try to get back to scratch, which is a lot of work since my swing is a mess right now.

2) Find a golf hat that I like.

1) Break 80 on a (decent) course. I don't really birdie a lot of holes, but hit a lot of pars once I get going. Just gotta stay away from the big numbers and it should be attainable.

2) Get a hole-in-one. Been golfing for 10+ years now, still trying...

3. Beat my father (he is a 5.3 handicap, beat him once last year and I just want to beat him on a regular basis)

4. Go to the range 2 or 3 times a month (I go now once every 2 months or so)

5. Hole in one would be great.

Been keeping my golf stats -- Greens in Regulation, puts, Penalties, Pars, Birdies, Doubles.

Based on my stats I should be playing a lot lower than I am.  I suppose the best goal I can come up with is no more double/triple Bogeys.  If I can course manage better and pay attention to scoring instead of getting frustrated over one shot I have a good chance I can break 80s consistently.

In the meantime I bide my time.  Take down my states and dream of the day of double/triple free rounds of golf .... let the lower scores begin!

Awards, Achievements, and Accolades

1. Break 80 on my home course at least once this year.  (Lowest is 82 so far)

2. Get handicap down to single digit index.  (currently 12.5)

3. Improved accuracy with irons which will lead to more GIR.  (Have already seen improvement as GIR are up to 37% over last 10 rounds and 43% over last 5 rounds)

4. Improve driver distance and accuracy.  (I was hitting my 3wood as far and way more consistent than my driver.  Got a few tips on setup and flattening my swing from the pro and now my driver distance and accuracy are improving every week.)

5. Get a hole in one.

    • I have a food dehydrator. I bought extra racks for it, too. It takes a bit of time so to me it’s not worth doing in small batches.
    • My driver is a Titleist 913D3, and beyond that my two longest clubs are the matching 4-wood, 17 degree standard bumped down to 16.25 degrees.  And then a 4i.    I used to have the 3-wood in the bag that matches the woods, but the 4-wood has a smaller head which I prefer hitting off the ground.   When it's wet/rainy conditions I swap in a hybrid and take out a 64 degree wedge that I carry for firmer conditions.   That makes the hybrid the second longest after the 4-wood.

    • These were not from the same line. I moved around a little bit and picked a hole that had some slope.

    • Driver (Taylor Made SIM 2) Tour Edge hybrid (I think 18 degree) 4 iron  I used to have 2 hybrids instead of one. I used to have a 3 wood also.  I took the 3W out of my bag because I didn't use it very often. I had less confidence with it than the hybrid, probably because I used it less than the hybrid, it was a longer club, etc. If I have a "3W" tee shot, I either use the hybrid and accept the loss of distance, or I will choke up an inch on my driver or tee it a little lower or whatever.  I use only 1 hybrid because I just didn't find many cirucumstances where I felt I _needed_ one over the other. Either was fine.  If that sounds dumb or illogical or whatever, I don't disagree...I am not recommending this for anyone. I just want the bag to be lighter and simpler and am not claiming this was the ideal decision for my game.
