As Christmas approaches, it is becoming more difficult to find golf things to write about. It is usually about now I start thinking of a golf plan for next year. In 2016, I tried the go with a flow and yeah, that did not work at all. I have realized over the years, to be successful indeed to set specific goals. This approach works for my golf game, does it work for yours?
I am always on the journey to be a scratch player; however I never really understood what it would take to get there until last summer. As I wrote before, my round with Brooks was an eye opener. He is definitely a stronger golfer than me in many ways and the area he really dominated was with his wedges. His game from 100 yards in was excellent. It was a real eye-opener!
As I start to think about next season, I know what my central theme. I am going to focus on my wedge play. I am going to extend my distance out to 120 yards because that is a natural pitching wedge. I am not exactly sure how I am going to approach my way ahead, but I have plenty of time to decide. For sure, I am not going to over think the process. I realize it will mean hitting plenty of wedges at the range, zeroing in my distances, and focusing on my alignment. All things I like to do, so that will definitely be part of the plan.
On a side note, I cleared a foot of snow from my driveway. It was fun because I used a snow blower, but I expect I will be clearing snow now until March! Ah, the life in Northern Canada!
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
