So here we are in 2019. A new year and time to forget about 2018 and that damn lobbed chip that skimmed across the green into the sand trap costing me three shots and a chance at a sub 90 round. As I sit here at Casual Golfers United headquarters (CGUHQ), I ponder what I am going to do to make 2019 my best golf year ever? Time to take personal stock and break down a grand plan for awesomeness.
To set a plan in motion, the plan needs to have certain elements:
- Attainable (slightly out of reach make it a challenge)
Looking at my bogey golf game, I know I can improve and score lower. Let’s take stock of my golf game through data collected in the Grint:
So the image is a mediocre golfer. No shame there. I am who I am but I want to be a better version.
Improvement comes through work and experience. So here are my golfing resolutions for 2019:
- Play 12 different courses. Walk as often as possible/practical.
- Read 12 books on golf.
- Increasing Driving accuracy to 60%
- Lower Average Putts per Round to 30
These seem obtainable and not without reason. Might need a lesson or two. Maybe even sacrifice accuracy for distance. I already got the putting cup set up in my office for those long conference calls.
Let’s check back in December and see if I hit all the marks.
What are your 2019 golf resolutions?
