Picked up golf again last year with all the extra time stemming from COVID. Played a lot and got my handi down to a 2.3. I've worked hard during the winter (workouts, hitting balls in my garage, stretching, etc etc) and my golf bag is almost complete (still waiting on my Ping G425 LST 3W, crazy equipment delays everywhere). I've registered for 8 amateur qualifiers in the NY/NJ area and I really can't be more excited about them. I'm also considering making a career change to teaching golf (if anyone feels knowledgable about routes I can take aside from PGA, would love to hear about them (USGTF, PGTAA, etc)).
Anyone else getting into some competitive golf? What kinds of goals do you guys have for this season? We've had a lot of newcomers during this crazy pandemic and I'm sure a lot of them are here to stay. Meaning the courses will be packed again like last year. Im really going to make it a point this year to help and teach/guide newcomers to the game about proper golf etiquette (although I'm not quite sure if they're the same as when I first started playing).
