Great question although it’s coming to winter in the Southern Hemisphere. 
 

Few goals this year.

1 is more yoga and golf flexibility exercises. I believe you can change your swing and swing habits working on your body. 
 

2 Create playing stats during the rounds and focus my practice time on my weaknesses. 
 

3 Be grateful.. Sometimes we practice and practice and our expectations change and get a little inpatient.

Love #3. Its easy to fall into a self defeatist mindset if we dont see a payoff from the hardwork

For me 1st and foremost for me as @DennisMurphy said being grateful to just play. We have yet to have courses open and I have the itch so bad but this year will be different I think. Always happy to be out there but this year and years to come will be even better because of all this.

2nd my goal is to drop my handicap to At least 5 and in turn be playing sub 80 rounds more consistently. 
 

lastly during my fitting I had no idea I was hitting down with my driver (5 degrees down). I have been working ALL winter in this and am getting close to an even strike not quite up yet. My goal is to be consistently 280 off the tee because of this .

Im sorry to hear about your courses being shut down due to the pandemic. These are most definitely trying times. There was an interesting article I read on how how to come down from a 18 to 9 handi.. Ill share the link just incase you havent read it (first day on here, hope its not a policy violation)

Yea it sucks but they’ll be open soon enough I am sure.

i follow these 2 a lot. They’re great and break things down simply. Can’t wait for the rounds to start

Just the ability to play has to be my goal. Our courses have been closed for almost 3 weeks now. To echo what others have said though to be grateful for being able to get out there. I saw a thing the other day saying "I cant wait to slice a ProV1 into the woods." I couldnt agree more with that haha.

This summer was supposed to be the year I qualify for Districts. I haven’t competed since 2005 and I still have the itch and I know I can play. It’ll take practice but my wife is 100% on board with me trying.

COVID has other plans. This now becomes my 15 month plan.

Break 80, then do it consistently. 
 

Find a comfortable distance to the green and not use my driver as much when I don’t have to, more short game work.

Trying to get my index into single digits. Working especially on approach and putting, but driving consistency as well.

May everyone work hard, play lots, and attain their goals!

Decide on a perfect driver upgrade then break 80!  With all the course closed around here it's been an opportunity for stronger goal setting and analysis.

Agreed it’s been tough not playing yet but has allowed me to really analyze and try to correct issues as well as set realistic goals

And if the courses aren't re-opened by summer I'm setting a new goal of building a simulator.  Hope it doesn't get to that point.

Break 70. My play the last couple of weeks has me believing that this is achievable. I had kind of lost faith, but have been more focussed on course strategy; being at home has also slowed me to do backyard par active to improve my short game

Same here, my main goal is to break 70.  I have come close a bunch of times but never broken the 70 barrier.   I think most of it is mental.  I need to work on my frame of mind more.  I could also use some work with the flat stick.  So more putting practice and focus for me.

Achieve a 5 hcp, which would be my lowest ever. Doing this through lessons, and added time practicing on the short game.

Goal number one is to actually play golf this summer.

Goal number two, just enjoy playing pain free, last time I remember being completely pain free like now, I was about 20 years old and did not play golf yet.
