Breaking 80 was my goal and I did it 3 times , all 79's. I did learn how to do it though. Fairways hit and GIR's are what defines a round , we know that but....When I play par 4's with a bogey or better mentality and use par3's and par 5's as my scoring holes , breaking 80 is easier. 18 fives on a scorecard is 90 so make the most out of the par3's and par 5's. That puts 80 on the radar
@Weng2135 Congrats! Good job with the perseverance to stick it out til you hit your goal.
My goal for this year was to actually play and practice with more frequency. Met that goal. I turned 50 this year and decided my long range goal is to play in the Texas Senior Am when I turn 55. That gives me 5 years to get my game to the competitive point. I'm at about a 2 GHIN now, but I know I wouldn't be able to play to that in competition.
@Weng2135 Great job! Nothing like meeting a goal no matter how late in the season it comes.
My goal was to play more consistently, play well in our club's tournaments and get at least one round in the 70s. Was able to shoot a 76 a couple of weeks ago in a Senior Tournament at a local club, so with the season winding down in upstate NY, I'm satisfied with the results.
Congrats @Weng2135! I did meet my goal this year as well. I finally broke 80 a few times and have been shooting more in the low 80's. I know there are things I have to work on more but I definitely feel comfortable when I play. Looking forward to next year!!!
Just a quick question for the guys and gals breaking 80. What tee's are you using when you play are you on the back tee's, just curious we have this debate all the time at the club. I always say play the tee's that you feel comfortable with not the ones that your ego wants to play. Myself I have to play the back tee because of my cap but when I play a new course I play the middle tee's till I know the course sort of like a mini practise round.
