Since most of us not fortunate to live in a climate where you can golf year round are likely just starting to get the sticks cleaned off with hopes of getting out in the next couple weeks, what are your golf goals for 2011?

Where I'm at:

  • 8.4 Index
  • Putting is solid
  • Not hitting it close enough to the hole

Goals for 2011:

  • Get to a 6.0 index or lower
  • Do a better job of tracking my game/stats
  • Work on consistency in the long game (Driver is fine, 3-wood needs work)
  • Shoot par for 18 at least once
  • Break 80 (40 for 9) at least 1/2 my rounds

I started playing in the fall of 2010 and we start in Norway at 54hcp (heard that is different from country to country) and went down to 38 in two rounds. I didn't get the chance to play and official round again due to winter.

My goal for 2011 is to go from 38 to 20 in hcp and I need to improve my ball striking to get there. Not sure if I'll make it but anyways, that’s my goal.

I'd like to get my hdcp into single digit numbers.  I float between 13 and 15, so consistency is obviously a big problem with me.  I have rounds counting toward my hdcp anywhere between a 7.0 and an 18.2 index currently.  If I can get rid of the doubles, I think I can rid of the 4+ strokes per round necessary to crack 10.0.  Putting is actually good, short game ok - I need better approach shots.

Great post idea, BTW!  The courses here in NE Ohio are mostly open for play, but they're so soggy that I don't know of even one that isn't 'walking only' at this point.  The flooding rains and snow lately here have turned them all into swamps!  Hopefully they'll dry out a bit in the next week or so.  Don't get me wrong, I love to walk.  I'd just like to not sink-in to the turf an inch or two on every step.

Consistently break 80, at least 1/2 the time.

Get my average putts per round under 30

More consistent ball contact when chipping.

Last year I worked alot on long irons and driving and my short game paid for it, but so far the couple times I've been to the range this spring my long clubs are dialed in nicely. So this year its all about the short game. I can usually get on or beside the green in 2 but my short game killed me last year.

My goal is to shoot Bogey Golf. If i can score an 89 at least once, then i will be happy. Shooting that score means alot of things in the game have to come together. So, i am focusing on working on each of those components one at a time starting with the glaring ones. I just finished my 2nd round. So, i'm a beginner. But i shot a 46 on the front 9. Messed up in the Back. So, i have some hope to do this but i'm trying to understand all the terminology, strategy, and dealing with even my emotions when i blow-up a hole. I love the complexity of this game, technical aspects, and rewards.

I have made progress on one and that is to get an offcial USGA handicap. Got signed up on GHIN last week and posted one score. Not saying what it was:( (putting was HORRIBLE) but hopefully the next few will be better! The greens were really fast (which I actually like) but could not adjust to not having to hit so hard on uphill and longer putts which left me some tenuous down hillers.

Where I am

"estimated" handicap of 12

Inconsistent/streaky with all clubs (if driver is working, putter is not etc)

Goals for 2011:

Official handicap index of 9-10

Play enough to establish and support above

Consistency through the bag

Play at least one individual stroke play tournament.

I'm still learning and even though I live in a climate that allows golf all year, my job doesn't allow the time. My goals:

  • Make it through a whole round without losing a ball
  • establish an official handicap
  • Score 100 or less

    • Was in a group a few years ago that played every Wednesday and we did this same thing with net birdies every year.  One year got to 16 of them, but couldn't get two of them that I didn't get strokes on.  At least with this one, I get to count more than just Wednesday rounds...
    • I'm aware, but the post described choosing to forego two drops and immediately drop more than two club lengths from a penalty area. That is not in the rules. And, in the cited example of a penalty area and a cart path, "back where you started" would never occur. Because relief from a cart path must be in the general area, not back in the penalty area. 
    • It is in the Rules. However, in such situations, the player may not, in a single procedure, concurrently take relief from two conditions by dropping a ball in a single relief area determined by a combined nearest point of complete relief from both conditions, except in the situation where the player has successively taken relief for interference from each condition and is essentially back where the player started.
