scratch! but it's been such an up and down season so far... I've shot 2 under...and I've shot 22 over!


improve the following stats: f'way, GIR, sand recovery & bounce back... true story: i only hit 51% of fairways. I only hit 60% of GIR... my sand conversion is 50%. up & down is 60%

some pretty poor stats to get to scratch.

I am probably one of the few because I don't have any goals with regard to game improvement.  If anything, the closest thing I have as a goal is that my game doesn't get worse.........Hahahaha...No kidding!!

I do have quantity goals....IE....I have a goal to play 100+ rounds every year.  I've only failed to reach that goal once since the early 1990's.......and it was in 2010!!! (last year)

  1. Hit twice a week. Doesn't matter if it is on the range, lesson, putting green, or playing a round.
  2. Complete 18 holes without losing a ball
  3. Break 60 for nine holes. (Currently shooting 72)
  4. Be good enough to make par at the charity scramble my company particiaptes in in October (Basically shooting from my ball everytime)
  5. Get a friend who does not play to go the range with me at least twice.

Started in November of last year.. Current best round is 88.. I've only done that once so I'd definitely like to shoot in the low 80's at least once this year!

Would also like to get an eagle.. I'm a pretty long hitter, just not terribly consistent but an eagle isn't completely out of the question! Ah the joys of being 22. I can hit it a long ways, I just don't always know where it's going!

I guess my goal for 2011 5 months ago would have been to get back into golf. In the fall i want to make my hs golf team, i want to break 90 (currently haven't broken 100' but i consistently shoot 100-105 on 18 (always give up by the end) and i shoot 45 regularly when i play by myself. Id like to start losing a max of 1 ball per round, maybe record an eagle, improve my short game so it's at least respectable, oh and ge the white burner 2011 model :)

My 2011 goal is to shoot 80.  Right now I'm about 100.  4 weeks ago I was a 118 average.

I went from playing 2-3 times a month to 2-3 times a week.

I just purchased my membership at the local country club for the rest of 2011 and all of 2012...

I think this is n obtainable goal.

Break par for 18 holes. Have done it plenty of times on 9 but can't ever seem to do it for an entire round. Last year I was going in to 18 at even thinking I could easily make birdie (short par 5, was really comfortable that day) and ended up bogeying for a 73. Have made a few changes over the past two weeks adopting some concepts of Sean Foley as well as S&T.; In my first round since making the changes I shot 81 from 7150 tees in winds gusting up to 40 mph all day. Couldn't putt to save my life! But, driving the ball never felt better. I am confident that if I can put everything together, breaking par is a realistic goal, and who knows... maybe even break 70!

Where I'm at:

  • 11 Index
  • Driving is poor
  • Irons/wedges are pretty good

Goals for 2011:

  • Get to a 9.0 index or lower - currently 9.9 - getting there
  • Play more than once a week - too expensive
  • Work on driving the ball and getting it in play - getting better, but streaky
  • Break 80 at least 5 times - done it once

Goal #1 is to break 90 in back to back rounds

Goal #2 is to play a round without losing a golf ball

Currently shoot low 90's and usually lose 3 or 4 balls a round, either in trees/high grass/water

I want to lower my handicap to 20 or less, which means being more consistent with making good contact with the ball, which is hard for me.

    • 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.
