Do well with Evolvr and get consistent enough to have a handicap. Hope to be around low 20ish by the end of the season. If I can consistently break 100 by the end of the year I'll consider it to be good progress.

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.

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

I'd like to amend my goals by adding one: Qualify for the NCGA Club Net Amateur championship.  Qualifying is August 3rd for me at Apple Mountain.  It sucks because I can't hit driver but maybe 3-4 holes on that course max, so working a lot on my mid-to-long irons for tee shot accuracy in hopes of playing well there.

Last year I set a goal for myself to improve my drives, and I've finally achieved this. Now I've consistently been hitting fairways and have overcome the fear of taking out my driver. My goals for 2013 are the following: 1. Record my first Eagle (Have had 6 or 7 opportunities this year) 2. Beat my personal best score of 84 3. Improve my ball striking with my long irons Can't be that hard right? :)))

biggest goal I have this year with what little season I have starting out is to play some full rounds of 18 so I can start to see where my game needs the most ammount of work. might seem like an odd goal for some but with a family of 5 with 2 of those kids 5 years and younger as well as working nights it makes it really hard to play more than 9 holes at a time

Okay I want to play.

1) Get an eagle (sadly never had one)

2) Shoot a round in the 70s. I have a couple rounds of 80 already this year so that should be doable but I have never done it.

3)Improve my gir percentage to 50%+ in at least 4 rounds in a row

4) Get single digit handicap index

I play a lot of golf and pretty much year round in Charlotte so I will add some more when I hit these.

3. Getting there

4. Got myself an Edel in July and putting has been improving. Loving the putter ...

1. More time on the course and less on the range 2. Improve short game 3. get an official HDCP

I can check these off of my list now. My main goal was to break 100 and I did that each of my last three rounds. My lowest round during this span was a 95 but the coolest thing was i ended the round with the same ball i started with. That ball is now on my desk at work. Gotta sit back and think of some new goals for 2014

My year end goal for 2013 is to be playing bogey golf or better. Along the way I expect to achieve certain (obvious) milestones: 1. consistently shoot in the 90's 2. Break 90 3. Play a round without losing a ball :doh: 4. Improve fairways hit 5. Improve GIR's I would also like to participate in a tournament or two, but that is less important.

So, glad to report that I've reached almost all my goals. I'm regularly scoring in the low to mid 90's... I think I've had maybe 2 rounds that were over 100. My first round of the year was a 90... Had a really good day earlier this summer shooting an 85... I kept an informal handicap record thru an app... It had me at 15.8, (which I thought was on the low side), before my annual subscription expired with them. But by all accounts I've accomplished my goals except for not losing a ball... Come pretty close tho. Normally I would tack on some new goals at this point, but there's maybe 2 months of good golf left and I've scaled things back on playing to give the family more attention. I'm hoping to use the remaining season to groove some tweaks to the swing and give them a test run on the course a few times

    • I voted no as he is what he is. The alleged child abuse (if true) would be unfortunate and could explain why he seems to disown his parents. His personality could still be what it is, with or without the alleged abuse. To me, it's none of my business and if he wants to talk about it, that would be his choice and not mine. Notwithstanding all this, he is still a great golfer who would beat me with one hand and one foot tied behind his back and I appreciate him for what he is.  
    • Do you have a swing thread going? Maybe you should  create a swing thread with your videos. Go to ‘Members Swings’ and upload your videos from YouTube then post the links.
    • Day 373 - January 16, 2021 Mach 3 stuff to demonstrate, not for me (I’ll do mine tomorrow), then in the few minutes I had between juniors and a group of five adults, hit about 15 balls. Less exaggerated than the previous time(s).
    • Good advice.  Lay a towel a couple of inches behind the ball when you practice.   It will be an eye opener.
    • Oh no...here comes the ‘ he was the greatest ball striker of all time’ talk....
