Golf Goals for 2019 Results
Do not let the club shaft cross the line at the top of my backswing with the driver.
Get more external with right arm on the way back and keep elbows closer together. Also, better wrist conditions at the top.
Still a work in progress. I took an online lesson with Dana Dahlquist and he gave me a different priority piece to work on. I wasn’t turning my shoulders enough and I need to get my hands more in front of my sternum at P3. Which also helps get my right arm more external.
Get into flexion way sooner from the top to keep from early extending the hips. Rotate earlier.
I could not get into flexion from where my hips were on the top of the swing. Must get hips more centered first.
Increase Clubhead speed from max on course 104mph to 108mph using SuperSpeed Golf program.
After starting the program, I did not last very long before I had some back issues. I did however make some good gains by working on the new priority piece. (more shoulder rotation)
Plus 14 yards with the Driver (same club from 2018) and slightly better accuracy. Where have I heard that before??
I changed to the Claw grip at the end of last season. Played in a couple of captain’s choice events and putted very well with it.
Bought a Putting Arc and have been practicing putts inside of 10 feet.
I bought a Blast Motion Sensor and that has made a big difference in my putting. I hit over 4000 putts with it and the results were very good for me.
Dropped from -3.77 strokes gained to -1.22 in that time frame.
Hopefully be selected to the 2019 Newport Cup East team. (Incomplete) 2020?
Win at least one day at our annual Talamore (Pinehurst) trip in August.
(Achieved) Come from behind victory on Saturday. Made a 5-foot birdie on #9 (last hole) at Mid South to tie. Then won on a scorecard playoff.
Win or place in at least one Elite Golf Am Tour event. (Achieved) Second place finish in the 49 and under flight. (I’m 57)
