2019 Golfing Goals
1. Better course management - This kind of speaks for itself. I am going to have a plan for each hole and each shot instead of eagerly going up there and hitting the ball to where I think is safe.
2. Simplify the game (shot and club choices) - This kind of goes in hand with #1. I played some rounds with some seniors last year that easily shoot in the 70s every time. One of the things I picked up from them was how these guys just plain out keep it simple. They take their time. They don't try to kill the ball. They don't try any risky shots. They seem to always stay out of trouble because of this. Makes total sense, ha. So, I am trying to take a similar approach (no pun) this year. I added a driving iron to my bag towards the end of last year. One of the best decisions I ever made as it resulted in more tee shots being in safer play. Not that I am a bad driver, I just don't need to try and bomb a drive on a 340 yard tree-lined par 4. Get me out there safely 220+ yards with a 120- yard approach and I'll take that all day. This also goes for around the green too. Sometimes I'll try to get "cute" with my wedges and it will result in poor shots. Need to clean that up.
3. Walk more - I am now a proud owner of two Jones bags - Utility Stand and The Original. I am fortunate to be in good physical health and I have a lot of great, walk-able courses nearby. Time to get out and enjoy golf the way it was meant to be! The exercise is a plus, too.
Oh, I'm also looking forward to hitting these shiny new Japanese blades for the very first time on a course.
