With 36 days to go before opening day, my anticipation for playing golf continues to grow. Many of you in the warmer climes have dusted off your clubs and are hitting the links already. Of course I am jealous, but there is nothing I can do about it at this time. With snow banks over 6 feet high in some areas, indoor golf work will continue for the foreseeable future. One of the positive aspects of the having so much time on my hands is my ability to plan out how much golf I plan on playing this season. And believe me, it is going to be alot!
My first thoughts are how many rounds I want to play. This number is pretty standard for me because like in previous years, I forecast 80+ rounds in my future. This is totally doable because I am not working, I am healthier than last year and the course will be open for 7 solid months. It seems like a reasonable goal to me.
You have goals for the number of rounds as well; here is what you said:
I have other goals for playing this year and I thought I would share them to see if I am missing something:
- play in 5 tournaments
- play on 10 different courses
- play at least 10 rounds with my wife
- play at least 10 rounds with a stranger
These are pretty basic goals, but if you stack them up over the season, I will be pretty busy playing golf.
I plan on walking most rounds this year. Given my current rate of recovery, I should be able to build up enough strength to do so. I will not push it, but I am hoping by the end of the season I will be a walking machine. We shall see; however, my primary goal is to play lots of golf.
I am visualizing my 2019 golf season to be the best ever. I believe that a strong mental attitude will pay dividends on the course. I have started to play rounds of golf in my mind, now all I need is for spring to arrive so I can put all this positive energy to good use.
What are your golf plans for 2019?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
