Going for Scratch

Well my first steps towards being a scratch golfer have been very successful.  While I am still working out the details as to my fitness schedule, I have hit the gym three times in two days and oh yeah I am very sore.  This is typical when starting a new fitness program and I am not concerned that I am having a hard time getting out of a chair.

Regardless, through the years I have realized there is always one thing that is truly important to the success of reaching a goal.  Some will say organization, others support, and still others a solid plan.  Although these things are important, they are not the most important aspects to my success.

For me it is accountability.  I create an excel spread sheet, write down each activity accomplished and continually adjust my plan to keep improving.  Also, I talk about my goals with my wife and friends.  Lastly, I measure my fitness success by recording my slow increase in the amount of weights lifted.

This year, I am adding something new.  I am going to keep a running total on my successes and how I carry out my goals.  This new step will provide that extra incentive required to be successful.

This year is going to be a great journey.  I am looking forward to all the challenges and enjoyment of reaching my goals.  As my trek to being a better golfer unfolds, do not hesitate to offer suggestions and hints to help me along the way.

I am a grateful golfer!  See you on the links!

  2. Hi,

    Like one of your other posters, I’ve started a blog recently also. I’ve played for years and it’s fun to see another avid golfer striving toward their goal(s). I’ve been scratch, now I’m pursuing actual under par scores in amateur tournaments. Next years goal is winning significant events and then a push to reach the senior tour (I’m 47). I’m also working with my friend who is a golf coach, we are writing an instruction manual for golf that we think is ground breaking as a strategy for all golfers to achieve the lowest scores they can reach.

    Good Luck,

  4. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
