1. Play more than one round a month. 2. Get a proper fitting for my whole bag. 3. Single digit handicap. 4. Stop bothering my wife with swing theory. I listed them in order by difficulty. I'd honestl

What course is that? I saw the one pic of the par 5 you posted and I want to see more! PS ... I can't keep up with you on the links yet, but I'm pretty sure I could hang with you on the alley! ;). (

Just broke 90 for the first time today! If this becomes a regular thing, I'll have to update my #2 goal to 85.

1. Rework my technique/swing. 2. Drive 50% FIR by May, then 80% by year end. (driving is a huge letdown at the moment) 3. Practice more often. 4. Make single digit handicap ( currently 14).

1. Get confident through the bag with my new, flatter swing.

2. End the year as a single-digit handicap.

3. Get a whole lot better about keeping up with my stats after each round so I know how to allocate my practice time.

4. Statistically speaking: 60% FIR, 65% GIR, under 1.9 putts per green for the year.

And, 5. Don't embarrass myself at the club open this year like I did last year, when I did my Tin Cup impression on the 17th hole.

Play more golf, improve my driving, improve my 3-wood, improve my hybrid play.  Whats really holding me back from scoring is my struggles with getting off the tee and hitting a good 2nd shot that gets me on the green or sets me up for a makeable wedge shot.

Hmm, 2012 goals were

a) Break 100

b) Break 90

I succeeded with the first, and almost the second (best round was 91).

So 2013 goals are

a) Break 90

b) Break 85

c) Break 80 (This is a bit of a stretch goal, I don't know if it's achievable, but I'm gonna try!)

swing impouvement,

on the BS I need to have my left arm much more in line with my target and my wrist hinged upwards more correctly as of now it is bent towards my back (cupped i think you say).

If i can do that this year after 6 years of repetitive mistakes its a miracle.

1. Break 100 more often. 2. Make better contact with my irons on the course. Some reason I make good contact at the range most of the time, not as much on the course. 3. Continue straightening my drives. I improved greatly last year (for me anyway) 4. Golf more!

So I paid the yearly membership fee yesterday at the local golf club. $480 = unlimited golf and use of facility (cart not included)

Here's the updated 2013 goals list:

1) Play at least twice a week

2) Practice effectively at least 3 times a week

3) Sharpen my game around/ on the green

4) Drop HC to a lower single digit

5) Play in State Amateur Tournament

I don't really know what goals to set. I hope I'll be able to play some golf, but I'm farther from a training facility than before, so it could result in less practice. If I can play well enough to stabilize at around 10-15 handicap, I'm happy.

Awards, Achievements, and Accolades

In 2012 I achieved all of my goals except one, and so that is my #1 goal for this year:

1) Become a single-digit handicap.

2) 50% GIR for the year.

3) Shoot an even par round of golf OR the course rating, whichever is higher, in any given round.

If I accomplish any of these (or am on pace to do so, for #2) by mid year, I will throw in another:

4) Get up-and-down 50% of the time

Alright this will be the 3rd time I've revised this. I think this is the final revision.

1) Play 18 holes at least twice a week

2) Practice effectively at least 3 times a week

3) Sharpen all aspects of game from tee to green

4) Become more consistent

5) Drop HC to lower single digit

    • I guess it's easier for some people to think that their enemy is a cult rather than a bunch of informed individuals. Saves one the bother of introspection. 🙃
    • I am watching that thread.  Just in wait & see mode
    • Nah. Folks like Thomas can't fathom that a bunch of people can independently arrive at the conclusion that he's a dope. So it must be that I have "minions" (his words) who just suck up to me. Ha. As if.
    • I applaud this for the simple reason that there has to come a time when people are called out for who they really are - even though  in this case the perpetrator proudly demands that we know what he is -  despite gentle and not so gentle prodding with regard to at most getting a simple education and at the least showing the capacity for understanding simple concepts that one assumes most of us share, but sadly, don't. It's one thing to be belligerent, crude, crass, grumpy and just plain dumb, but to be so wilfully and proudly out of touch is something else. To essentially mock a movement that is designed to create inclusivity and recognise an ugly history and see it as a joke is about as low as it gets. Now more than ever, this sort of mentality needs to be called out.  Rant over.
