#1 - learn to control my emotions - i.e. stop getting mad when I make a bad shot or have a bad hole.  I'm not good enough to get mad about this.

#2 - Get my handicap down to around 15-17.  I dropped it from 36.4 to 29.1 between June and November last year.  Kept playing all winter up here where we can't record scores Dec-Feb, but if I had I would be at a 22.3 right now (killing it in handicapped tournaments!).

#3 - Break 90 fairly consistently by the end of the season. (I have only done this once this year).

Update on my progress- 

#1 - Getting much better at this.  I'm not quite where I want to be yet, but I have made solid progress in controlling negative emotions on the course.

#2 - Currently at 18.4, trending to 18.0.  I have about 5 weeks left in the handicap season, so I may be able to get into the 17's before the season closes.

#3 - Not quite there yet.  I broke 90 for the first time about two weeks ago, and have now had a string of scores around 90-93.  I joined a private club last month, so I'm now playing a course with a much higher (+10) slope rating than when I set this goal, but I'm confident that I can get there.  The only thing preventing it right now are the couple of blow up (triples and quads) that seem to creep into many of my rounds.  Yesterday I shot a 93 that included two quads...

It was to bring the handicap below 20. Started and finished at 23...

But feel I am way more consistent this year. 

Need a little more length

Any chance on starting the recap thread now since some states/provinces have now ended their HI season? Would love to post while fresh on my mind.

Uhhhhh, yeah, let me see if I can do that in about an hour.
