What are your golf related New Years resolutions?  I want to be able to shot in the 70's consistently. Right now Im averaging between 81-86 due to my terrible putting. I miss everything outside of 4 feet it seems, and im only about 50% from 3-4 feet. I have seen some improvement because I have been practicing my  A** off, but I can tell im still no where near average with the putter.

What are you goals for the new year? Do you have a plan on how you will obtain them?

1.) To play smarter golf (know when to take driver or back down to 3 wood or hybrid, avoiding hazards, hitting the fat part of the green, etc.) in order to consistently break 100.
2.) No 3 putts

Drop handicap by 3 shots and hit more greens.

BTW does anyone think dropping 14 shots in one year is too much to believe?

depends on where you start from.... if you start as a 36 handicap its fairly easy to pick up 14 strokes in a year, on the other hand if you are a 14 and you say you got to scratch then thats a lot harder to believe

1:  To lose my ego at times and take more club into the green.
2:  To play 3 new courses that I have never played or haven't played in a long time.
3:  To walk more this year.

I really try not to create "score goals" or "percent goals" as they put a lot of pressure on you and usually end up having the opposite effect.

You're a member of golfwrx, you've already accomplished that. ;)

My goal, drop my handicap to single digit by learning to putt. Averaging 38 / round is flat out horse dung and I'm going to correct it no matter what it takes. Hypnosis?

1) Keep losing weight so that I can enjoy life... and of course, so that I can rotate a lot more, LOL.
2) Improve my GIR average (currently around 20%, want it at least at 35-40%).
3) Significantly reduce 3-putts (current average is one 3-putt every 15.8 holes - kept stats for all of the 75+ rounds I played during 2012).

Last year I renewed my whole bag and went through five sets of irons (all bought used though) figuring out what I really liked. This season I'll be going back to taking lessons to get more consistent with the irons I've decided to stick with. I should probably start already by training my core muscles, especially back.
