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.

The Adam Goodman Project:

1. Medal in 5 or more high school matches

2. Make the All-NCCC team

3. Compete in the Connecticut Jr. PGA

4. Finish in the top 10 in a Connecticut JPGA event

5. Bring handicap into the 2's

6. Bring putting average under 1.80

7. Get at least 5 instruction sessions

8. Practice 4-5 times a week at least.

9. Get more interest from college recruiters

10. Break 70.

Oh yeah, and improve my disgustingly horrendous scrambling percentage!

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 ......

    • A poll would be nice for this topic. Mine is standard 45.5”.
    • That's why I've got Nickent 3DX Hybrid irons, I have a 10 iron which works for me. Most sets of irons have 8" or more of loft gap between the 9 and the wedge, it's ok if your good enough to hit a half'ish or climb into the Sandiron but I'm not. I'm not too bad hitting a strong 9 8 7 etc but the wedges I'm more likely to hit skinny or fat, I think why there is so many wedges is all about the Money...
    • Above, or you could also make yourself a set of homemade speed training aids, instructions are all over the internet.
    • Day 202.  This evening, I spent ten minutes hitting balls.  I noticed my rehearsal swings weren't getting to where I expected and that my front arm was folding almost at setup.  I wonder if this was the issue yesterday?  I will have to pay more attention going forward.  By the way, I say "the issue yesterday" as if I hit the ball horribly.  Other than the first shot O.B. (which was also my first shot of the day -- range was closed), I played quite well, beating the 10 handicap mark on strokes gained by nearly a full stroke, and if we ignore the opening O.B. (which I maintain wouldn't have happened if I had been able to hit a few balls to warm up -- yes, it still counts of course), I'm under my handicap in SG:D for the day, too.
