In 2020 some things went well and others didn't. Given that I broke 90 about a doz and a half times with a low score of 84 and an ending index of 18.6, not too shabby for a 73 yr old coot who started

Very simple, get my knee(s) replaced safe facility somewhere. Swing Speed back up closer to 90 and get into the 70’s again, not age score[emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

My goals: 1. Continue to occupy one of the best seats in golf as I watch Kirke play. 2. Continue my off-season work that I've begun on fitness/strength. 3. Full swing improvement. Arcco

Either Trent or Randy at Windmill Training Center, but I'm leaning more towards Randy as I have played with one of his students and he gave me a rundown of how he teaches.

A new Driver, looking very heavily at one of the TSi's but will entertain others. I'll be doing a fitting hopefully next month. The wedges, I'm going with the Sub70 286 forged with the same Project X Catalyst 80 shaft I have in my irons.

My goal is to get to a 15 handicap before the end of Dec 2021. Ambitious yes. 

Doable with the swing you posted today... and a good short game.  😃

2021 Goals:

1) Be realistic/Lower expectations: every year I set a goal to lower my handicap, and I do, and yet still get annoyed at myself for “hitting a plateau”. I spent most of the 2020 season lamenting that and at the end it ended up 3 strokes lower.

2) improve approach shots from 100-200 yards. This is my biggest weakness according to arccos, but see goal #1. How realistic is it to expect to hit a green from 190+ more than 5/10?

3) worry less about my score, and have more fun with my wife and friends when we’re golfing together. Save the seriousness for those solo rounds.

My chipping is trash, but I have also not focused on learning how to properly chip and also having a good strategy. That will be one of my focus areas for the upcoming year. I lose a lot of strokes with chipping. I currently consider a chip to be "good" if it goes onto the green, even if it is 30 feet away from the hole 🤣

Also looking at replacing the driver and wedges. I know what I want, I just have to see if they fit and pull the trigger.

I took a driver lesson from Trent last year.

My main goal for next year is to go from a 4.5 hcp down to 3.5. A stroke might not sound like much, but when 5/6 last golf rounds have been in the 80s, it’s not going to be easy! I have to go from shooting 77 at the lowest to at least 76, and I have to have a VERY rare 80+. How do I do that? Well, keep going with my swing changes and my lessons, and use a soon-to-be lesson to work on my short game: chipping/pitching.
Next is improve my athletic condition via the TRX system, and stationary bike I just bought. Getting my legs and body in better overall shape will also help me to accomplish my above goal of dropping my handicap.
Last is to look at filling the gaps between my Driver and 4 iron more efficiently. I hit my 3w and hybrid too far. 4 wood and 22* or 23* hybrid are likely to replace the 15* TS3 fw, and the 20* X2 Hot Pro.

TRX is a great simple setup. Only thing I miss from the gym.
Will get back there when C19 has passed.

I really need to focus on my course management. I play the same course 90+% of my rounds, and I still put up too many big numbers and penalties. If I can get that under control I'll drop 4-5 shots a round.

I turn 40 this spring.  For the first time in my life I feel like I am focusing on where my limitations can become my strengths.  I have a bag that I am extremely confident with and finished my season with a +1 round with two birdies following 2 months off.  It's about playing smarter not stronger.  Goals for the offseason are in no order:

1) Be the best putter I can possibly be.

2) Play more with my dad.

3) Focus on placement of iron shots within a flight window.  This is what Collin Morikawa does, he hits the ball into a specific window when visualizing his shots.  

4) Stay active with MGS.

My herniated disk feels good, I am running again on my treadmill and I now know where and how hard I can push myself. PT was good.

I love the Dad part... Best goal ever!

Number 2 I think we should all add that to the list, and dads toss the *play more with my son* in there too. Very good

Take it from those of us who no longer can... DO IT and DO IT OFTEN!
