Setting Golfing Goals for the New Year

The start of a new year brings with it cold weather (unless you are in the other Hemisphere!) and the prospect of spending time away from the golf course. However, this doesn’t mean you have to shun your favorite activity altogether. You can at least set golfing goals you plan to achieve in the New Year. With the first month of 2015 having passed by quickly, now is the time you get to setting goals. Here are some pointers you can use:
  • You have to make sure that all the goals you set are achievable and that you can easily complete them within the span of a year. Of course, it depends on how frequently you are on the course. For some people, it’s every other weekend. For others, it’s twice a week. Hence, keep your playing habits and frequency in mind. Aiming to play a low-level tournament having played golf once a month for the past few years isn’t going to cut it.
  • Analyze your game. Here, you can pretend to be a pro for a change and dissect each and every aspect of your game. This can include your swing to your stance to your choice of clubs. Put everything under the scanner and determine where you stand in reference to where you want to be. This will enable you to identify the areas of your game which require improvement. For instance, if your stance is perfect but swing isn’t, you can work on your swing instead of trying to improve your overall game.
  • And while you are analyzing your game, it is time to refine your goals and make them identifiable. For example, lower your handicap isn’t a fixed goal. You have to determine what the small changes are which you need to make to your game to lower your handicap and improve your overall performance. This will also enable you to keep track of your goals, giving you a sense of accomplishment when you tick them off one by one on your list.
  • Last, but not the least, once you have listed the goals you want to achieve, check if all of them are necessary. To improve your game, you need to focus on the parts that will have an overall major impact. If you keep addressing every small kink, you might not be able to achieve your golfing goals for 2015.
In addition to these goals, you should also aim to spend more time on the golf course (you probably do already!). Follow these tips and make 2015 a year of golfing achievements through and through!
