  • Goals

    So how did everyone do on their goals for 2009?
    What are your new goals for 2010?

    I did okay this year, but I feel short of most of my goals. They were pretty though though. I did get my first PDGA win in open. I also got to play in the USDGC which was really great. I'm still looking up at a 1000 rating and I would like to get a few more trophies next year.

    Thanks again to everyone who helped run all of the great events I got to play this year and to all the folks that I got to huk with.

    I did pretty great on my goals:

    I got an ace
    I broke 400 feet
    I cashed in a few events

    I'm excited for next years goals which look something like this:
    Play 7 more courses.
    Finish the course at Western Oregon
    have a great fundraiser tournament
    Shot an average round rating of 900+ in a tournament.
    Get my rating over 900

      I am really happy with how this year has turned out for me, my goals to begin with were mainly to play 30 events, break $10,000 PDGA cash, win an A-tier, finish in the top 20 at majors, and get to a 1020 rating.

      I got my 30 events.

      $11,252

      I won one A-tier and took 2nd in another.

      Finished 5th at worlds and 43rd at USDGC (while I did technically miss my goal, the high from getting fifth overpowers the low of 43rd).

      I was rated 1022, now at 1019, but once Eugene Celebration is sorted out I think I may end the year at 1020.

      A few other things I am happy about:

      A second consecutive 10 win season (along with 11 2nd place finishes)
      24/30 events in the top 3
      55 consecutive cashes
      Another Oregon Series title


      Next year my #1 goal is to pull an Arlyn and go top 20 at the USDGC
      I would also love to win a bigger A-tier and get a top 5 at a NT
      Just like everybody I would love to raise my rating as well, 1025 I hope.
      I also want to improve my putting and shoot an 1100 rated round!
      Lastly, more birdies in 2010, and less bogeys!!

          This pretty much sums it up for me, but I'm going to elaborate on how I'm going to do it

          As for 2009, my rating didn't really change, but I feel I'm a much better golfer now. A lot of my improvement has been during post-tourney season.

          My 2009 goal was mostly to throw 400+ feet, and then work from there. I accomplished throwing 400+ feet at will, and have drastically improved my upshots and putts.

          My 2010 goals:

          1) Improve driving accuracy and consistency. I can't get birdies if I'm off the fairway or green.
          2) Make 90% of putts inside 25', and 70% inside the circle.
          3) Increase upshot accuracy and get-out-trouble-shots. Right now I occasionally pull upshots way right or let them slip out early, and I want to eliminate that.
          4) Cash in three Open events, and place top 3 in any Am1 events that I play.
          5) Learn to throw at least two new types of shots with consistency and accuracy. Possible candidates are BH or FH rollers, sky rollers, "elevator" shots, air bounces, "go-for-it" approaches, grenades, or extremely high angle (80+ degree) spike hyzers.
          6) Get a 970+ rating.
          7) Learn to throw 450'+ on a golf line.

            Finally got another PDGA win, my 2009 goal. Would have liked it against a bigger field, but a PDGA win is still a PDGA win. It had been 2.5 years; it feels good.

              2009 was a good building year for me. The first half of the season I was hot and cold, then in August, I just went all out practicing putting every night and then got my win at Eugene and then a tie for 3rd the following weekend, both PDGA B tiers. Improved 15+ points on my rating. So in 2010
              I want to improve my scores at the 3 NT's that I went to in 2009 and keep all my rounds above 920.
              So...
              Improve to 935 or better by end of 2010. Place higher and better than 2009's NT's in 2010.

                Play Dallas.
                Play Keizer Rapids & Taloali some more.
                Play Sorosis again, now that it has tee pads.

                Yup, that's about it.

                    My major goal this past season was to qualify for the WA series. I failed.
                    I wanted to finish top 5 in all events. Fail.
                    Win 3 events. Fail.
                    Get my rating over 1000. Pass.

                    2010 my major goal is to just play more whatever happens while I play let it be. I will continue to practice and improve but playing more events would be cool. But before this I need a job, main 2010 goal; find employment.

                      My goals for 2010 are to continue the improvement in distance and accuracy that I am experiencing here in the later part of '09, play in some actual PDGA tournaments (including, but not limited to the Rose City Open and the Beaver State Fling), practice my putting every day, win the 21st Annual Fourth of July tournie (non sanctioned event) at the Cedar Arms Country Club so's that I can be the Betty again... it's been too freaking long... to keep losing weight (I swear for every pound I lose, I can throw 3 feet further!), and to love every second I get to be out on a golf course...

                              I'm going to try that. When I've wasted away to nothing, I'll be throwing 700 feet. Nothing else has worked.
