Golf Goals for Remainder of 2013

27 posts in this topic

Yes, as crazy as it may sound, we are just approaching being half way through this year. With that being said, that means that most of us only have about 4 month left of good weather for golf before it gets too cold. So I figured with 6 months to go in 2013, let's start discussing some real individual goals that will help improve your game. Personally, I have 3. 1. Go to the range 20 times 2. Break 95 3. Play 18 without any 3 putts.

I'd like to gain more consistency in my swing so I hit less fat shots.

As far as score, I'd like to break 45 on 9 holes.

After shooting 72 (personal best) I feel like I've overcome a huge mental barrier to consistently shooting in the 70's - which I probably only did 2-3 times a year for the last 5 years.  5 of my last 9 18 hole rounds (non-combined) have been in the 70's, so my goal is to keep that ratio of shooting at least half my rounds in the 70's.

I just go into golf a couple weeks ago. Bought my first set of clubs on Friday. Through the summer I plan on working on my mechanics, getting to the range to learn the characteristics of each ball, and generally learning everything I can. Once fall rolls around, and morning time temperatures are tolerable (I live in Tucson, its 10:15 am and already getting close to 100) I want to start getting in a few rounds and establish  a handicap. From there, 2014 will be about chiseling that handicap down to respectability.

I want to get into the 80's. That seems to be a very reachable goal right now being that I just shot a 44 last night and have been keeping my scores in the mid to upper 40's in most of my 9 hole outtings.

Much like the OP I would also say avoid the dreadful 3 put but I've accomplished that a couple times now.

So to have a more realistic goal, since I've never shot par for a full 18 holes I'll aim for shooting par for 9 holes and continue the back 9 so I shoot in the 70's. I think that's a realistic goal seeing that I've shot 2 over a few times this year. If I can get rid of my yips on my short game I should be golden, if not I'm going to watch that handicap keep going up.

I honestly just want to be more consistent around the green. I think I got the pitch shot down that erik talks about in the quickie pitching video. I think I've hit 200+ of those shots in the last 18 hours. I'm playing tomorrow and Sunday so I hope all goes well.

I have 3 goals for the rest of this year.

1. Have fun no matter how I am playing.

2. Be more consistent with my tee shots.

3. Start getting lessons.

Become a bogey golfer. I've had several rounds just under 100, and my driving has taken a big step for better. I'm confident that I could already be at the target if my sessions at the driving ranger were better. In retrospect, I'll get the small bucket of balls so maybe I won't feel the need to hit 'em as fast as I can. I, originally, wanted to break 90 but feel that is too lofty of a goal and I don't need more pressure. I hope y'all make all of your golfing dreams come true! Lmao

Sounds like a great goal to me!   The wife and I just got a 3.5 month old foster baby and sleep training is definitely in the works!

My main golf goal right now is actually off the course.  I lost 65lbs last year to get from 284 to 219.   My new goal is to work my way down to 205 by September and work on some strength training.  I'm a very short hitter of the golf ball (7 iron goes about 140) and I would like to get my smooth 7 iron distance up to about 150.

My 2013 goals are

1. to break par but still not able to , just close close a few time

2. Get putter fitting with Edel - just got it done last week and now waiting for my putter to arrive . Should be any time soon . I also found out that my aim is okay ( during the putter fitting ) and that helps my confidence.

Things that was not in my 2013 goal but acquired

1. Bunker shot - improve significantly and able t put very near to the hole ( green side bunker )

2. Swing Change - Adopt Rotary Swing methodology and i m hitting more consistent.

What is for 2nd half of 2013 ?

Break Par !!
