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!

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 ...

Awards, Achievements, and Accolades

1. Improve lag putting in order to get rid of 3 putts which is the reason for my bad rounds 90% of the time.

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)

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...

My goals.

1. Shot even par (lowest round 78)

2. Play smart golf.

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!

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.
