My goals for this year were to break into the 70's. Last year I was in the low to mid 80's on a good day.

I have forced myself to practice more this year. Putting, Chipping and at the driving range. I try to at least putt and chip 4 time a week for 1-2 hours. This is the part of the game that I and most amateurs struggle with. This year I have had a lot of improvement. I also try to hit balls at least twice a week.

Well at the end of May I achieved my goal for the year. I shot a 79 and that was with a double bogey on the last hole. GRRRR. Since then I have played quite a few times and have played very consistent.

Then just last weekend I had everything working. I started the day out birdie, par, birdie. I was just waiting all day for that one bad hole or two I usually have, but they never came. I ended the day with a 73, hitting 14/18 GIR. Hopefully I can keep playing consistent and shoot in the 70's a few more times this year.

My goal in January was to reduce my handicap from 23 to 18, i managed to get it to 21 early in the year when i was playing once a week, for the last two months i have been playing 2-3 times a week and have lost another 2 strokes. i am scoring well at the moment so i definetly think i will achieve my goal very soon.

Practice my short game much more. I seriously am one of the worst putters ever. I can generally play some great sand shots, chips, pitches, etc. Whenever I get the flat stick in my hands is when everything falls apart. I just don't understand. My handicap right now is a 2.2 and I guarantee that it isn't less than .5 because of my putting.

Become more consistent I generally shoot mid-low 70's everwhere, but every now and then an upper 70's to an 80 will sneak in there and mess me up.

Confidence I have none of this. Mainly because of my putter. Build my confidence level with the series of tournaments I am about to start playing in so that walking onto my schools golf team will be a breeze when I finish my Co-op.

I have just a few weak areas in my game that I can recognize. It's frustrating because I know if I can take care of those then I know I can compete with just about anyone.

I want to consistantly hit 90 or better & never ever venture into the 100's again.

3 aspects of the game I need to work on are pitching, putting & confidence.

My revised goals for this year are to get under a 10 handicap by the end of the year, and to get more consistent with driving accuracy and lag putting. Those two are killing my game and I can save five if not ten strokes a round that way.

My goal by year's end is to be a single digit handicapper. If I can move from 13 to a 9 or 8 I will be happy. I would ideally like for my bad days to be no worse than an 85 and my good days to be down around 75.

My goal this year, is to break 80. I've shot a few 9 hole scores in the 30's, but can never put two sides together. My personal best is an 82, which I've shot 3 or 4 times. A decent round for me is usually 84-86.

    • Juli,    Our dominant hands perform millions of everyday task for us that are in our subconscious mind. We never give them a thought. However, the golf swing is NOT in our subconscious mind . It is a learned conscious task that is totally foreign and opposite to human genetics. If it was NATURAL NBA and NFL and other great PRO athletes would be leading the PGA tour .    Our shoulders ( upper arms ) are the most flexible joints in our body . This enables our dominant HANDS to bring food to our mouths so we could survive as humans and they will ALWAYS roll over, turn down unless we force them / teach them to perform otherwise . The DS only takes 2/10 seconds . Whatever key you choose to use must be  preprogrammed / prepared before you ever pull the shaft back . The human brain can only sort out and perform ONE ( 1 ) task in that short amount of time . So - what is that one thought to be ? Well - their is a direct connection between the brain and it’s dominant hand . The right in your case . It is responsible for dropping the entire lever system down back around behind our torso and to stay right palm upward during the entire DS . If we don’t we definitely know what is going to happen and you can see it on any range in the world . It is the turning of the torso ( inner circle ) that squares the face, not the hands ! Yes - I know this sounds radical and some will say so , but check out * Cortical Homunculus * and see where I am coming from.  thanks for your reply . Good luck
    • I get where you are going with this.  The only thing I can think of that would really constitute a "Mental Mistake" is there have been times where I'm forced to used a cart and it's cart path only. I assume I have the correct club and then by time I walk across to my ball (Not sure why I never hit it near the cart-path.) I realize I don't have the "right" club. So, 9 times out of 10 I use the club I have rather then hike back for another one.  Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't I always think "Damned, I'm an idiot."  Pretty much the rest of the time my mistakes come from this list. Hit it off the hosel. Hit it off the toe. Hit it off the heel. Hit it off the bottom. Hit it off the top of the club, or roof of the driver. Shanked it. Thinned it. Or some other unexpected weirdo swing fault that happens.  I would bet "mental" mistakes, on average, probably make up about 1 shot a round for me... maybe less. I played yesterday. Shot an 84.... 12 over par. I don't think any of those 12 were due to "mental" mistakes. I would say that all 12 shots came from "didn't hit it good enough" mistakes.
    • Overhand or underhand? I do think the connection most on this site have is we like talking golf. Most want to improve as well, but may not currently have the time available to put in to improve.
