I would like to be more consistent. I'm too up and down. 80 on Saturday followed by 72 on Sunday. Unfortunately, that will require more golf/practice. Not sure I'm going to have the time needed to get that consistency. I have, however, learned to just enjoy playing the game. That was my goal last year.
My goals for 2020:
1.) Break 100 before my 1 year golf anniversary (May 2020)
a.) By working on lag putting and chipping around the green.
b.) By getting rid of swing thoughts and slicing or shanking the ball off of the planet on the tee
c.) By aiming in the direction that I am hitting the ball that day instead of the direction my ball "should" be going. (really dumb but I do this a lot)
d.) Lowest score so far is a 103
2.) Improve ball-striking
a.) Continue to practice on my way home every day at the executive course (Still Free :))
b.) Hopefully find a decent instructor to get lessons from
c.) Line face up to target, take grip, swing freely ( This is whats working well for me now vs. having swing positions in my head)
3.) Play a ton of new courses
a.) Was gifted a WVGA "VIP" card for Christmas which lets you play most private courses in WV a few times a year, as well as, discounted prices on public courses.
1.) If anyone in WV hasn't checked into this it really is a crazy good deal for $50 a year. I know I will easily save that much on the public courses I play a lot, and the private courses are at really good prices.
Going to Savannah in April and staying at the Landings on Skidaway Island. They have 6 courses, Deer Creek is the host of a Korn Ferry event while I'm there. But any recommendations on the other five courses?
