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!!
