Hi All, Been promising myself I would have a year of taking golf really seriously and see if I could get down to plus figures for a while now. Start of June this year will mark the start of a 12-month stretch in which I get my act together and finally do it (though I'll be doing bits and pieces as usual before then). Bit of info about me. I'm in my early 20s and currently playing to about a 5 or 6 handicap (I do not have an official one at present). I used to be as low as 2/3 when I played really regularly a couple of years ago, but have neglected to get out on the course much since then and would probably now struggle to break 75. A 5 or a 6 handicap with the potential to go lower is probably about a good approximation for the state of my game at the minute and as good a starting point as any from which to kick off on my quest to get to plus. Historically, my ball-striking has been the biggest weak point in my game and it is this which I am going to be focussing my attention upon most to try and shave off those pesky half a dozen shots from my handicap. My short game and putting is pretty much scratch level already so it'll more just be a case of keeping that area of my game ticking over rather than working towards significant improvements. I'll keep you guys posted with any rounds and/or practice I get down between now and the June 2018 starting point. Once the Summer kicks in I will be hitting range balls everyday and playing at the weekends. My aim is to document every round and practice session which I do in this 1 year stretch, keeping anyone whose interested updated with my progress and - for all the numbers geeks out there - the full lowdown of my stats. Wish me luck, Hosel4lunch
