  1. - Get my index down to single digits (11,5 now) - Play at least 50 18-hole rounds. - Break 80 from yellow tees at my home course (rated 73, 6350 yards) - Be more consistant with my driver. Now it goes both left and right and I hit less than half the fairways. - Get at least one eagle on a 500+ yards par 5 (my home course has 5 par 5s (500 - 550 yards from yellow tees),where the shortest one plays a lot longer with the green situated 25 yards higher than the tee, but all reachable in 2 with 2 close to perfect shots) I will start the season with a 3 days "golfschool
  2. Latereg for me. Going for the honorable 16th. 😎 Never played fantasy golf before, but should be fun.
  3. I think these 10 will top the list 12 months from now (not in order): Dustin Johnson Justin Thomas John Rahm Rory McIlroy Bryson Dechambeau Collin Morikawa Viktor Hovland Tyrell Hatton Xander Schauffele Matthew Wolff What is your prediction?
  4. For me it is definitely the OB hook or slice off the tee. Unfortunately I usually have one of each during 18 holes....
  5. Hawaii looks pretty special too. Lofoten Links is definitely worth a visit. One of the most unique and beautiful courses out there. Should be played in July (midnight sun) or September (Northern Lights). Some of the holes are really special and when the wind is howling in from the North Sea this is the toughest course I have tried to score on. The picture is from hole 2, taken at midnight. Can be a quite challenging tee shot for a 150 yard Par 3, can be anything from a 52 to a 4i depending on the wind.
  6. Since I carry the Callaway Mavrik iron set (4-AW), which is extremely strong lofted, I carry 5 wedges. From set: PW (41 dgr), AW (46 dgr) and Cobra King Pur 52, 56 and 60. Very pleased with the gapping now. Covers everything from 160 yards and in.
  7. After a quick count, I landed on 83 rounds this year. I've played for 16 years and that's more than half of my lifetime rounds! Norsjø Golfpark (59) Lofoten Links (6 (108 holes in 2 days)) Salten GK (1) Helgeland GK (1) Trondheim GK (1) Vestfold GK (2) Sandefjord GK (1) Kragerø GK (2) Bamble GK (1) Grenland GK (5) Arendal & Omegn GK (1) Larvik (3) If COVID allows it I might be able to squeeze in a weekend trip or two to Denmark, Sweden or the UK before the courses around here opens again in April/May.
  8. Since the golf courses are closed for the winter around here now, I'll share my best ever drive (summer 2019). We were playing the Levante course on Villaitana Golf Club in Benidorm (Spain), and on the 8th (550y par 5 from the yellows) I ripped the perfect drive in perfect conditions (15mps wind from behind and hard fairways with good roll). 390 yards in the middle of the fairway leaving me with a soft 9 in. Missed the green and chipped/2-putted for par, but the feeling when I hit that ball so hard and pure was fantastic. I usually hit the ball pretty far when I hit it straight, bu
  9. Some impressive numbers on here. I don't think I've reached 150 rounds total yet, but with the kids getting older I now got a lot more time for golf (Played 75 of those 150ish this year). 1. I have played 32 different courses. 2. 21 in Norway, 11 in other countries: Spain (3), Ireland (1), Scotland (2), Denmark (2) and Sweden (3). The most spectacular one is definitely Lofoten Links (north of the polar circle), where you can play a very challenging links course in fantastic nature around the clock in the midnight sun. 3. I used to save my score cards, but over the years the

  11. Hi, I'm 45 and live in Porsgrunn in Norway. Homecourse is Norsjø Golfpark (golfparken.no). I love playing golf, love challenging myself to improve and have a goal of getting down to a single figure HCP next season. We have some good courses around here, but they are now all closed for the winter, so the golfclubs are put away for the season.
