So early this year after my first tournament (a dismal performance @ Bowling Green) I decided to focus on my game & set a goal of getting my rating to 900+ this year. To start the 08 season I was 852, after BG 842. Lots of practice & a couple dozen rated rounds later I hit 900 even with today's update!
I'll now focus on consistency. Putting, putting, putting. I think my weak point now is still a mid range putt 25-33ft. I'm pretty confident in longer "putts" that I can jump. My drives have improved leaps & bounds since the spring. Backhand drives that is, my forehand needs a good amount of work as I'm not yet confident enough to toss it in competition. Winter is going to have some adverse effects... practice will be difficult, finding time nearly impossible. I'll be cleaning out my basement this weekend & setting up for those 30ft putts.
Goals now that I've met my summer 08 rating goal. I'll be entering sanctioned events in AM2 now & a simple goal is to take home a victory in that. If possible with my work schedule I would like to play the Indiana Summer &.or Fall series in 09. Another goal, win MI States in Am2. Get the rating to 925 next season. Find a way to play/practice with the baby coming in the spring. Some of these will surely be modified when the bundle of joy shows up :)
That's all I have for now...
