PostSubject: Goal Setting   Sat Aug 01, 2009 10:21 am

Goal setting is not very frequently talked about in golf, yet it is an immense subject deriving its origin from metaphysics.

Have you set any golfing goals for yourself?

In short, it should be a long term strategy with tactical adjustments in the short term to reach the goal.

My biggest goals right now are:

1. Drive consistently - distance is not an issue. Dispersion is - keep the dispersion minimal.
2. Build more confidence in short game.
3. Learn to read the greens better.
4. Putt better. Practise. Practise. Practise.

lol don't beat yourself up mr spaz. the beauty abt golf is that there'll always be a better day/round.

my goal, for the moment, is to lose lesser and lesser balls. Very Happy

Goal is to come back after a round and tell yourself that you have enjoyed it.

Golf is a long, sometimes lonely road. Take your time and enjoy it. Remember to smell the flowers along the way. If you persevere long enough and hard enough, you will get there.

My next milestone is to break 95.

Very wise and practical advice for average players like me.

TGM: Maybe sumday when we tired of chatting about golf, we can discuss in detail Hegelian Dualism or Cartesian Transcendental Metaphysics or even moral pre-Socratic philosophy over a few glasses of beer!
