Disc Golf Goals for 2011
How did you do on your goals for 2010 and what are your goals for 2011
heres how I did,
1. Not lose a disc in running water! Failed, I lost two discs in running water.
2. Consistently Drive 300'. Failed, though I am hitting betewwn 250' and 274' consistently
3. Make 90% of putts from 30’. I am currently hitting 90% when less that 15' and 75% from 15' to 30'
4. Play at least 18 holes every week. Sort of... if I average it out I come really close
5. Play at least 4 courses I haven’t played. Completed +1 they were Pier, Dabney, Mt Adams lodge, Eastern Oregon University, Sorosis Park.
6. Take at least 5 people to disc golfing that haven’t played. Almost, I took 4 people who never played
7. Help organize and play in a tournament or league in Pendleton. Completed.
This year's goals are:
1. Not lose a disc in running water!
2. Consistently Drive 300'.
3. Make 90% of putts from inside 30’.
4. Play in at least 4 tournaments this year with at least one B-tier or higher tournament in the mix.
5. Run a PDGA Sanctioned tournament.
Goal 1-Put the disc in the basket.
Goal 2-Remove the disc from the basket.
Goal 3-Repeat goals 1 & 2.
2011 player rating > 2010 player rating
Here are the goals I posted on last years thread, some of them make me feel little dissappointed about this year.
Bring my rating up to 950+ ------- Not close, got it up to 943, now it's down to 935
Place in the top 3 of an advanced tournament ------- Yes! thrid in the Trojan Slosh last March.
Play 15 new courses ------- I think I came close, one Cali road trip and Whistlers' trip put me at at least 10 if not 15
Write 15 reviews for those courses ------ slacked off on this one, only wrote 7 this year.
Reach a consistent 400' drive, I've been driving 350' for 4 years now ----- Still driving 330-350'
Get some semblance of confidence in my sidearm ----- Success! After two years of ultimate, I now have a DG competent sidearm
Feel confident with all my putter shots 175' and in ----- better than I was in 09, that's for sure.
Start a disc golf club at my college and teach 10 new disc golfers ---- sadly no, being out of the country for the last 4 months hasn't helped though.
All in all, considering I haven't been able to play for the last 4 months, 2010 was good, but not great. I learned the hard way the problems with playing 4 back to back 2-day tournaments over the summer.
Here are my 2011 goals.
-Get my rating up to 950.
-Place in the top 3 of at least 2 events in advanced (unless I somehow get super good and move up to pro)
-Play another 20 new courses, especially more courses in Washington.
-Work on building arm muscle strength and endurance to fight off nagging injuries (I think this year, that will be more crucial than raw distance).
-Have more fun in competitive settings, less PDGA events, more fun small weekly events.
-Convey exactly why disc golf is so freakishly addictive to my girlfriend.
-Get my sidearm to 300+ feet consistently
-Average 20 minutes of putting practice a day.
Here's to a great year of NW disc golf!! :cheerleader:
1. conquer my two hole breakdown pattern
2. play with des reading and sarah stanhope at the Beaver State Fling (this one i can rely a little bit on luck with, not just hard work... who knows who i get to play with that first round...)
3. no 7s
Stop self destructing in tournaments.
Develop consistency in pressure putts
Dye my own discs.
Get to Oregon for more then 24 hours
Shoot a 1000 rated round
Win an Advanced Tourney
Gain some sort of putting consistency
... oops, thread drift... my bad...
... and, while i do not throw one, i think the stingray is an excellent suggestion... teresa trueba rocks the stingray like nobody's business...

I am seeing some great goals that people have for next year. It has been my experience, in life and disc golf, if you don’t challenge yourself you will never get any better.
2010 goals posted last year:
Here's the real goal for a modern day disc golfing dad who wants to spend loads of time with the kids while balancing work and disc golf.
Improve my rating by 20 points while only doing the following...
1. Practice putting only prior to rounds and during lunch break at work.
2. Practice drives only prior to rounds plus one additional hour per week at the nearby school field.
3. Play only one casual round per week; that round being a weekly $5 random doubles.
4. Play only 5 tournaments.
Well, my rating on Jan 1, 2010 was 934 and now it is 956!
1. Did it
2. Didn't even practice drives that much
3. Did it
4. I've only played 5, but Steily w/Chili this weekend will make 6!
What I've learned: Because I didn't practice drives very much, I actually threw shorter in 2010 than in 2009. But my rating went up 22 points... Why?... Because my putting in 2010 was awesome! Something I totally attribute to Papa putting pointers and practicing putts/playing putting games with my friend Mr. Huff at work during my lunch break.
1. Throw at least one 1000+ rated round, gosh!
2. Win one Advanced tournament
3. Maintain my new 950+ rating
4. Birdie at least one hole (in a PDGA tourney) that is flat and 400+ feet with a legit putt (not some 100 foot approach)
