My 2018 is about committing to a change in swing. Iteach is who Iíll stick with and Iíll get lessons as often as required.  I had my first lesson some weeks ago and everything he said just resonates with me and he spoke of things Iíve long wished to do but never knew how,  To be honest I still donít know how but Iíll keep plugging away Ďcommittingí until I have a serviceable swing.

Iíve always struggled with commitment in Golf. Chopping, changing, no sticking with anything. Itís just silly...

Good golfing all for 2018!

Putt everything out. Tougher than it sounds, I tried a couple of years ago and quickly failed.

Why is this tough? Only problem I can see is if you are playing a par or Stableford comp and you play your last scoring shot 150 m out from under a tree.

I would love to get to single digit hcp in 2018.  Currently at a 14-15.  Last round, I made 11 pars which is really good for me.  Left the driver in the bag and just pounded 3W off the tee and hit a whole bunch of greens with decent approaches.  Missed all 10 or so birdie putts.  So I have work to do, but at least had a flash of good golf in there somewhere.

Would like to rediscover my "real" swing.  25 years ago I was 25 years old and was a baseball/softball player from 6 years old to 25.  I went to work at a place full of golfers and took up golf.  In about 6 months, I shot an 80 even with a horrible short game.  My boss/mentor told me "you know if you got that baseball swing out of your golf swing you might be good at this game" - started lessons and couldn't break 100.  I'm now a 12 and will get close to 80 about once a summer.  I would like to somehow cleanse my brain of 25 years of golf instruction (not all of which was as bad as the initial group of lessons where the guy tried to make a short stocky guy swing like Davis Love) - rediscover that natural swing so I can play with a clear head, not thinking about whether I have a 12 degree negative spine tilt while I'm standing over the ball.

So that is a lot of word vomit for a guy's first post.  Hi, I'm Mike, I like reading your forum.

Welcome Mike.  Iím relatively new myself, but itís a great forum.  I dig your thoughts above.  Playing golf and not golfswing can make your time on the course a lot more enjoyable.

I'm going to keep score again for the first year since 2005.
Also stats, so that I can regain some meaning to the work I have put in to the swing and shots the last 10 years.
This means I will need to temper my inclination to hit every shot regardless of the consequences of a miss, and get back to playing a thinking, intelligent game.

LOL, who am I fooling, I give it 6 rounds like that at best, and then watch me draw this wedge around those trees!

My resolution is to stop being such a whiny b**** on the course when things don't go well, and become stronger mentally.  Too often a bad shot or unlucky break infuriates and/or disenfranchises me and I allow it to ruin my round.
