After some heavy reading and heavier thought afterwards, thanks to the why you started playing golf, personal par and ask a coach threads, I have realised that I have yet to set goals for myself.
I don't want to just set handicap goals as it's too basic and is not reflective of all the nuances of this great game we call golf. besides, not quite understanding where my shortcomings are makes it hard to practice perfectly - just to quote some smart guy online.
So where am I now?
Current hcp - according to golf shot its 13.8. Will update this when I get an official one.
Driving - 37.6 % hit , 40.7% left, 21.6% right
GIR - 26.2%
8.4% scrambling - don't quite understand this stat.
0% sand saves.
1.9 avg putt per hole.
2.07 avg putt per par
Scores by par 3 - 4.1, 4 - 5.3, 5 - 6.3.
Scoring in % - eagles 0, birdies 4, par 26, bogey 36, 2 bogies + 36
Seems I don't hit enough fairways?
This also affects my ability to hit GIRs.
Putting needs improvement but acceptable at this level of my game.
Short term goals - hit more fairways! Lol.
Guess I will have to park the big dog and use the 3 wd more. Yes AB Uncut - you are right. Want to see how this affects gir stats in the coming months. Learning some new movements is going to make this more challenging than it initially seems. Set goal at 60%
