learn to play a cut, anytime i try know it ends up going straight, (usually play a 5-15yd draw)

pitch, chip, putt way better

go to the gym to increase distance. (im 6'0 and weigh about 160)

no real quantitative handicap goal, but really aim to stay in single digits.

My goal is to improve my putting and I managed to improve it. However , my tee off is getting worse ( especially par 3 ) . Shanking n finding fairway bunkers . Sigh . For 2h of the year will be improving my hybrid and 3 wood from the fairer .

I'm a new member so just found this thread but I still had some goals for this season and I'm close but not quite there yet.

  • Get under index 12 (Gone from 16 to 12.7 but I had to change my golf set completely this year so I'm still happy with the improvement)

  • Break 85 (Did that at a competition a couple of weeks ago)

  • Stop playing exclusively on my home course so I won't play so terrible when I'm not used to the course (This is something I've definitely improved on)

And I guess I'm gonna keep a lookout for the 2012 goals thread also :)

    • I have to confess, I'm bummed about DeChambeau. BUT not surprised.  I've always enjoyed the way he plays the game, he does stuff differently and I think that's good for the game. He also signed a buddy of mine's head cover a few years back and couldn't have been nicer to us.  Having said that, He also often behaves like a big old baby and does some things I simply can't defend. When he berated the camera guy that was ridiculous. When he stomped off the range and buried his head against the wall to cry. That was not only ridiculous, but also weird and made me wonder if there was actually something wrong with him. (More than just being eccentric.) His two minute forty second putt was also non-defendable.  I don't think he's a smart or as "engineering educated" as the media gives him credit for (No where near as smart as he thinks he is). But again, he's interesting and different and I've always argued that those characteristics make him good for the game. So, I was disappointed when he made the jump. BUT I was NOT surprised. I don't think he "gets it". I don't think he does his research on anything as much as he tries to portray himself as this man of study and logic. I think he sees himself as edgy and outside the box, but at the same time he can't read the room for s#it. His comments about vaccination were just embarrassing and I think show a real lack of seeing the big picture. So, I wasn't surprised when he jumped, but I remain disappointed. I've been disappointed in him several times in the past so, I'm getting used to it. 
    • C’mon man! You were the President of the Taylor Gooch fan club! You got that tatoo!😜 Agree, 54 hole snooze fest.
    • True, but even when they decide to focus on a shot, it can still take 20-30 seconds for the player to execute. The broadcast likes to include the player picking a club and setting up. If they take too long, sometimes they cut away, sometimes they don’t. I’m not saying I prefer it.  Personally, I would love to see more shots, less putting. 
    • Apart from what  OP has just repeated, the clue is in the term temporary water,  the revised name for what used to be called casual water.   As it is  a temporary condition, you could not designate an area as temporary water all the time. And to push that thought further, if it were water all the time it wouldn't be temporary but by definition a penalty area. It wouldn't be surprising if on occasion parts of this mushy area do meet the criteria to be temporary water (I get the notion that you get occasional showers in Seattle) but it could be very difficult to know or have virtual certainty that a lost ball was in such a patch.
