Have you set a goal for next season?
By mustang6560 on 12/12/12
On Monday, I posed the first end-of-the-year question, "Did you accomplish your goal(s) in 2012?" The second end-of-the-year question, which is a natural follow-up question, is:

Have you set a goal(s) for next season? If so, what is your goal(s)? If not, do you plan to set a goal(s)? Why or why not?

I've set three goals for myself next year: 1) Break 80 at Deerfield, 2) Shoot 70-something at least five times, and 3) Shoot 75 or lower.

Have an idea for an end-of-the-year question? Email us!

Mine are to, 1) lower my index into single digits. 2) Qualify for our local Publink Championship.
If I can get these then other goals will fall into place.

The only measureable target I have is to score less than 100, preferably on a par 72 (I always feel like I should score 98 on a par 71 to really feel good about breaking 100 on that course).
mjaber says:
@mustang... In theory, yes... in reality, maybe.

GBogey says:
Two goals: 1) get my handicap down to 8 from 10; 2)Improve playing away from my regular courses - in truth, my regular course handicap is about a 9 and my non-regular handicap is around 15 - too big of a disparity.

Get my handicap to below 20, play more than I did this year and make a concerted effort to practice.
jfurr says:
Break 80 five times. Single digit index. Improve putting.
Wes11point5 says:
Heck, I am almost afraid to set any goals. I had goals last year and play so bad that I went backwards. I would like to be as close to a 10 handicap as I can get but I don't know.
joe jones says:
Same old, Same old. Shoot my age or better.
Spaceman_Spiff says:
Improve my handicap. Win a Denver Golfweek AmTour event, win player of the year in my flight. Learn to re-shaft and grip my own clubs.
sjduffers says:
Late to the party, but I will add my goals to this awesome list. I want to drop my handicap to 10 (currently at 13, but was 12 earlier in the year), break 80 (I shot 80 twice and posted a 79 once due to ESC reduction), get my GIRs up to 35%, my putting average down to 32 (currently 33.3), reduce my 3-putt average to under 10% (currently around 12%). All good stuff! :)
eabaskervill says:
1) Break 90
2) < 2 putt avg/hole
3) 40% fairways
Wes11point5 says:
I have been thinking about it a lot lately and I have one goal. I am going to try and put a lot of thought into each shot (including hammering out a pre-shot routine). I think most of my issues on the course come from having that ONE BAD HOLE. A review of my scores will show that a 10 or 11 will pop up on the scorecard and then it is all downhill from there. I believe that those holes stem from just giving up on the hole and making some 0.5-assed swings to complete the hole. By then, the round is wrecked. I think that trying to focus more on the immediate task at hand (the next shot) will solve the other problems.
Bogeymanfred48 says:
I have two goals to improve my game in 2013. The first goal is to average 6 GIRs per round for the year. The second goal is to average no more than 1 DB or greater per round. Last but not least is to play at least 100 rounds next year.
