Let’s see some 2021 Accomplishments/2022 Goals


Recommended Posts

I had a few written down: 

 

- hit 60% FIR (got to 52% for the year, but last few have been in the 70s)

- hit 50% GIR (27%)

- 1.7 putts per hole (avg 1.8)

- single digit handicap by year end (first year keeping one and am now at 10.5) 


2022 I would alter these slightly and add a couple: 

 

- keep hitting at least 60% of fairways and beyond as I have lately

- get to the 50% GIR which is my weakness as you can see

- continue to improve on chipping/pitching

- 1.6 putts per hole

- would love to get to 8 or below on handicap

- beat my PR of 77

- would love to upgrade clubs as well

Getting up and down is kind of the next phase.  I am now avoiding the big miss (chunks and thins) so I am dialing in distance control   

 

With your handicap I am surprised you haven't shot par.  

87, then the last 6 rounds ranging from 74-79. 80s drop-off, so now the majority of scores are in the 70s. GHIN is what can potentially shoot, so not an average, which you know already. I’m shocked I’m at 3.4… Seems like it should be 6.

I'm in the same place you are. I also have a 3.4, and I pulled up my GHIN stat tracker and over the last 20 rounds my average score is a 78. So in a way, we are 6s.

Wow! Yep. So odd to have such a low “handicap”, makes no sense, other than GHIN’s “potential to shoot” basis.

I was trying to figure it out myself. I'm seeing the opposite. Out of my 20 rounds used in GHIN my average score is 70. So if my average is under par why does my handicap come out to be .6? Dave replied to my query a few weeks ago and said it uses the course rating. My course is 68 for my tees so that made more sense.

2022 Golf Goals

Primary Goal: Birdie all 27 holes at my main muni (only birdied 23/27 last year)
Secondary Goal: Under par on a golf course rated at least 70.0 or better (for a par 72), or 69.0 or better (par 71)

How will I get there? I'm not sure. I made great improvements in the last year by continuing to work with my coach and take a lesson every month. While my HDCP hasn't moved tremendously (went from a 6.7 to a 4.7), I know I am a much better player now than I was back then. As always, HDCP doesn't really capture consistency as much as it captures your "ceiling." I am committed to spending another year taking lessons with my coach every month. I have always been a very cautious player and, with my improved skill, I am slowly starting to take more risks and being rewarded for it (most of the time). 

Also, as always, with the start of the new year I have to earn my way back at my local muni. That means starting at the forward tees (4700 yds par 70) and having to shoot +2 or better from there to then move to the senior tees (5100 yds par 70) and having to shoot +4 or better and then the white tees (5900 yds par 70) and having to shoot +6 or better to move back. The goal, as always, is to get through each these first try. Good luck to everyone in their pursuits next year!

I like that challenge of playing at every tee. Playing from the closer tees doesn’t always translate to lower scores. It makes you play shots you haven’t played or are not necessarily comfortable with. George Bryan does this on his YouTube channel. Might start that at my local course.

I like the idea of moving up, I'm currently playing the green tees at my local course and after hearing y'all talk about it, might play a couple of rounds from the silver. 

The whites where I traditionally play from are rated 70.1/124 and 6250 yards.

Green: 67.8/118 5815

Silver: 70.4/114 5330

I moved up to the greens a couple of months ago to rebuild my confidence and they play pretty close to the and length as the other course in town where I've shot 5 rounds in the 80's. I think buy moving up another set, I might be able to score close to that. I'll probably play them until I can at least post a score in the low 90's a couple of times before moving back.

I played a few times this year from the Forward tees with my wife and a couple of other ladies.  Once I played with just irons, and the other times I played driver on every non-par 3 hole.  It is certainly a test for sure; lines off the tee are different, hazards are reachable where from my usual tees they aren't.  The main difference for me is I get to hit much shorter irons into greens which is fun so GIR is up, but scores are really not that much better because I get into more trouble off the tee.  If I played from there more, I believe I could break 70.

Sounds like it makes sense. My home course is 72.1/126. Next year I'm not going to have a home course, but I usually play the tips at any course. There's less than a dozen Northern Ohio courses that touch 7000, so most course ratings should be right around par.

I bet that’s why for me as well. The course I play isn’t that tough, and when I travel I tend to shoot high 70s to low 80s, often 82-84. The course rating from the Blue is 71.3, and slope is 119. Not a very hard track… Yeah, definitely why I’m so low. Thanks!!!

Today was a lot of reflection for me…this year was a lot, emotionally.  I had some small goals to accomplish that were derailed early in the summer.  So instead, I just went out and played.  I played when I could and made the most of it.

Which leads me into 2022…

Bring my daughter on the course with me to walk around and play as much or as little as she wishes.

More rounds with my dad.

More scrambles.

That’s about it. 🙂

For 2022

Driver.  Feel confident in 2021 Bomb it but I have a handsy hook that I will try to manage in 2022. I want to eliminate  the two way misses. The high fade working to perfection but I will get that snap hook when my sequencing too fast with my hips my hands “snap” too save the drive. I may try double overlap grip if I get to flippy with the driver 

Putting/chipping   Making strides in 2021  i develop 38 inch putter for arm lock  I hold it at 32 inches where my hands are I want to add variety to my short game  Want to hole out bump and run well as spiny LW from off the green 

Irons/pitching    This is strong part of my game  I aim for the pins and get close with my wedges   I retired my 2/3/4 iron gradually over the year  My 4iron head broke off and I used a hybrid in 2021 and worked really well  My swing must have changed cause I used prefer 3 iron over a hybrid (hooksville)
