What are your goals for the 2018 season?

This is just one of my annual winter ramblings but what are your goals for the 2018 season and what are you planning to do to achieve them?

Last season was a success for me, breaking 80 and making an eagle had been on my list for several years, I had made a couple of eagles along the way but last year I finally broke 80 and got the eagle too.

I began to wonder what my goal would be for this season and something like start playing rounds in the 70s regularly seemed a bit vague but breaking 75 might not be realistic. It hit me today that my aim should be at making the cut at the club championships. That certainly requires me to start playing better golf day in and day out so that I have a legit chance at making the cut even on a bad day.

There are three things I'm looking forward to changing. I had a group lesson with a different pro last autumn and he gave me some very good, fresh, advice about the swing and turning your body back and through, so that's one thing I'm working on now. He also talked about mobility and pointed out my shoulders have none. Thus I'm stretching with a purpose now to get club into the right spot in the backswing (further away from my back and get the right elbow pointing straight down).

The third thing is my putting. the counter-balanced project putter is waiting for a new grip and a shaft extensions to arrive but I've also changed the way I grip the putter. I used to grip it with my fingers, like irons but now I've moved to gripping it more in my palms and that has changed everything else. I have to say I've got to know the breaks in the hallway floor of my apartment quite well over the past weeks. :)

As for working as a rules official, I think my goal would be to work either in Jacques Leglise Trophy or the St. Andrews Trophy as they're both played in Finland this year. I don't think it was a pure coincidence I broke 80 for the first time just a couple of days after watching some of the top juniors in the country play for two days.

What are your goals and plans?

That is quite the prerequisite for playing golf and many other things. I hope you achieve your goal! :)
