You'd better change mine to 16.2/16.5/17

On the other hand, I could join Langy or Drouin and quickly push my 'cap out another 10 strokes fairly quickly. They both have lots of long holes.

The Butler 6.9 / 5.5 / 4.7

 

Why 5.5 and 4.7 you ask?

 

Thanks for asking ISGers, I shall explain :P

 

They will represent a daily HC on my home track of 6 and 5 from both the white (128 slope) and blue (132 slope) tees. Let the grind begin on what i believe will be realistic goals.

]Hack Driving range/driving range/Black tee challenge


Hmmmm, now you've confused the 'measure' metric with 'action' metric.

So it should read;

15.2 / ? / ? C1:P20:F40

C1 goal being monthly blue marker challenge at the home track.

P20 goal being twice weekly putting practice, twice weekly short game practice, walking 9 hole on course practice round once a week, every second week an 18 hole practice round with the caddie driving me around.

F40 goal included cross training daily aka surfing, with an occasional hamstring and back stretch.

I think that's a good way to look at it.

My current 15.2 gives me a Daily of 18 off the whites at the home track, but off he blues is 19. So, my first goal is get to a daily of 18 off the blue and then work down from there. Ultimate goal is to play to daily of 9 off the Blues, but that may well be a dream.

So everyone except OB plans on reducing their handicaps hey, nice one.

 

However, it seems to me, that while having a goal is good, its pretty pointless unless there is some planned action to reach the goal.

 

As the goal is a reduction in handicap, what extra are people going to do, in order to achieve it, given their current level of time effort etc, has them at their "inflated handicap" ………. (inflated from where they want to be).

 

For me, that would be where the interest lies, in how people are going to get there. Where do see their area of greatest improvement coming from, etc.

 

As for my own goals I have none that relate to a handicap number (couldn't give a toss about it really). but i do enjoy reading the plans of others .....  ;)

While we don't have daylight savings it won't be much as I just can't get out to practice. I will try to keep up with my 2 rounds per week pending work commitments. During daylight savings I will be getting out once a week to practice chipping/pitching, putting and then get 9 holes in and swap between front and back 9 from week to week. Pretty basic plan but I like to keep it simple and not over complicate things to much.

I have had the benefit of playing heaps of comp rounds. I have found that at times I use this rounds to try things out and stuff around (mainly when I am playing poorly). This is mainly bc I know that I can play comp Tm or the day after etc. My planned action is to get an unlimited access range card to the driving range close to home and spending at least 3 to 4 sessions at the range and practice greens to fine tune my game and to take the 1 or 2 comp rounds I will play in a week more seriously by trying to grind out respectable performances even when I’m not playing that well. I am hoping this strategy helps in reducing my handicap. Time will tell.

Exactly.

Without an action element it's just a dream!

I reckon it needs the handicap goals AND the action metric. The detail of the metric, including what is practised and when can be put into each person's journal / journey / dribble / diatribe thread blog thingy.

How about we add the link to each persons diary thread next to the "scoreboard" where we also add current as of date posted. We can see if going up or down in relation to when they first set their goal. People then dont have to add info to various threads that way.
