1. Establish an official handicap. The one in my profile is a guess. Probably pretty close to accurate, but not official.

2. Cut said handicap in half by the end of the year.

3. Play in more local am tournaments.

4. Finish in the top 50% of a tournament. I'm usually near the bottom. If I meet this goal, it changes to top 25%.

5. Make the cut in the city tournament. This is really my number 1 goal (my major). An extremely poor showing in this tourney in 2009 set me on my re-dedication to the game. I set the goal of making the cut in two years. Usually it's around 150 for the two rounds and if I can meet the previous goals, this should be possible.

My last years goals very pretty general, hoping to keep it more focused this time, these are my 2011 goals:

1.  Handicap to 7 or under

2.  Focus more on putting, get a sub 30 putting round.

3.  Work on wedge shots, the low 60 yard spinner.

4.  If I buy equipment, focus on replacing 2-iron(or new shaft for that club), nothing else (the fault is the swing, .....)

5.  Finish top 5 in my group in the club championship.

In my bag:Driver: 910D2, 10.25˚, Aldila RIP, Fairway: 904F, 15˚, YS-6FW+ Stiff, Hybrid: Titleist 910H, Irons: S-58, 4-PW, DG S300, Wedges: Wishon 52˚, 56˚, Putter: Odyssey Black series i 1

  • 2 weeks later...

I started playing golf July 2010 and just got my first set of clubs two weeks ago.

1. Get to a 18 HCP (maybe unrealistic, but it's my target)

2. Play at least 80 rounds

3. Get my putting average to 2.15 (currently 2.41)

Main problems right now;

- 4i, 5i, 6i has a strong draw / hook.

- I have no fairway woods or hybrids which means currently a gap from Driver to 7i that I can hit fairly consistently well.

1]  Break 100 consistently

2]  Finish my at-home short game practice area, hopefully this will help #1

3]  Become a better wedge player, hopefully this will also help #1

4]  Spend more time on putting practice, again to help with #1

5]  Work on clearing my hips and consistently squaring up the club face at impact

6]  Birdie at least once this year

7]  Break 90 at least once before 2011 ends

My first post might as well be my goals for the year. Took up golf again in August after having not played since high school, about a 9 year stretch (very sad now that I did not play all those years.

1) Tame my driver - increase fairway percentage, currently at about 25%

2) Increase the accuracy of my pitches/chips/

3) Break 85 - It's a stretch right now, but I'm determined.

Just started playing last year and wanted to get my handicap under 20 and get my first birdie. I got down to a 15.9 and had ten birdies. My 2011 goals, which it's cold and snowy here will have wait a couple months, Is to get down to a 12 HND and get my first eagle, lol.

Two goals:

1) Play more - since all the practice in the world for me is no use when I play < 15 rounds per season

2) try to turn 3 into 2 - from 100 yards and in - or 4 into 3 - or 5 into 4 ......

    • Ya gotta figure out a way to work that in, with your golf buddies.  😀
    • Solid statement there. I actually like that. For too long I’ve had too many hobbies (mentoring, other sports, video games, …) Although those experiences are valuable, I think that going forward I’d prefer to focus on one hobby and do that well.
    • Quitting golf!? Surely you jest. I certainly don't see that ever happening to me. I get depressed when I have to take a week off. Perhaps I am a golf fanatic, but I can't imagine my life without golf. Heck I took my clubs and played golf twice on my Honeymoon...without my wife! Reasons why I play and would never want to quit: All my friends I met at the golf course As a lifelong athlete, I like the competition I am good at it Exercise- I walk every round It's a lifetime activity. There are several guys in their 90's that play regularly at my course. It's my job. I have worked at a golf course for 20 years as a second job. When I retire from my main job here in a few years, the golf course will be my main job. It's my only hobby. In order to play as often as I do, it's all I do. I don't play fantasy football, I don't go to the pub with the boys, I don't even hunt anymore. I work, play golf, and have family time.         
    • Sorry for the late response - I appreciate the response. Will try to continue the stretching. Had a great round today, and need to remember how much I enjoy playing my best golf to motivate me 🙂   Swing issues? possibly, I maybe need to prioritise looking into that the next time I go for a lesson
