Time to talk about 2021 golfing goals?

Recommended Posts

I’m going to keep my 2021 goals minimal so I can focus more time on each of them. 

•Get handicap down to 5 (stuck between 7-11 right now)

•Play more golf (hopefully joining a league this year)

•A front or back 9 score of under par

•A full 18 hole round at Par

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

Mine are probably different...

My goal is to slowly put this as a secondary hobby for me.  The goal is to play once a month, if I learned anything this month... it is that I put way too much emphasis on golf.  I love this game, but it is time to find a more family friendly and less time consuming hobby.

Realistically, I'd like to shoot 80 or better for the majority of my rounds at my home course. This would be right at the 10 handicap mark, as an 80 is 10.1 differential if my memory serves correct.

Swing is coming around, especially with the longer clubs, and it will just be a question of whether I can mentally translate it to the course. New putter and winter practice with the EXPUTT will hopefully shave a few strokes since putting has been terrible at times in the past.

2021 is going to be a weird year for me, trying to find where golf fits in what will hopefully be a slightly more "normal" summer. I played a lot of golf last year because all of our summer plans were cancelled, and then with #CobraConnect I had extra incentive to get out and play. I didn't practice often until August, and it was no surprise to me that I started to play better in mid-late September and early October the last few times I went out (and even ended the year technically in the single digits). 

Truly, I'm just hoping to get out and play a few rounds with my wife, brother-in-law and sister-in-law. My wife has been sidelined since 2018 with shoulder problems so it's been a long time since she's done more than just occasionally ride along.

My goals for 2021 are pretty simple

  1. Spend some time every day working on some aspect of my game. Full swing, short game, mental game, or strength and flexibility. (24/24 so far)
  2. Remember why I started playing this game. Get back to golf being fun.
  3. Enjoy my time at the course. Try to recognize that shooting low scores is not as important has having a good time.
  4. Play some great courses in the PNW.

Good luck to everyone in 2021!

Back under the old handicap system, you were supposed to play to your handicap about 25% of the time (https://www.oga.org/back-basics-handicapping-101-playing-your-handicap).  I haven't found an update to that logic since the change to the WHS.  Looking at my last revision, 3 of my last 20 scores have differentials at or below my index, and another two scores are .5 or less above my index.  So I guess the 25% rule is pretty much still in tact.
