I originally had a handicap goal (which was carried over from last year BTW). But since it only contributes to more stress and less enjoyment as my handicap has steadily risen this year, I have decided to just have a goal of breaking 100 more often.
Finally broke 90 yesterday and shot a +15.
Main areas I felt that helped a lot bring the low 90 scores under 90 were the following:
- Got more consistent with driver. Went from slicing almost everything badly to occasionally slicing a third of the time. It is a lot improved from where it was last year, but i feel like it is still the worst club in the bag for me. I feel like i can shave off another 2-4 strokes if I can keep it consistently on the fairway.
- Play a lot more looser and don't overthink things. I tend to tighten up and screw up the short game if i overthink it.
- Don't three putt
- More consistent Iron play. My misses are a lot less horrible w/ the irons compared to last year.
