Setting Goals for the Coming Season
Establish your goals - Analyze your game - Create a Plan
If you want to improve you have to take a hard look at your game and create a plan.
This is the time of year many of my students and I discuss their goals for the coming season. Together we analyze their game, identify their strengths and weaknesses and create a plan to reach their goals.
To analyze your game and identify your strengths and weaknesses complete the following Game Analysis Worksheet.

How you rate:
4.5 - 5.0 Your Avg. score for 18 holes is in the 70's.
3.8 - 4.4 Your Avg. score for 18 holes is in the 80's.
3.0 - 3.7 Your Avg. score for 18 holes is in the 90's.
2.2 - 2.9 Your Avg. score for 18 holes is in the low 100's.
1.0 - 2.1 Your Avg. score for 18 holes is over 110.
Note: Be sure not to overrate yourself. For example, if you normally shoot in the 90's and your Overall Game Analysis is greater than 4.0 you have overrated your skill level in a particuliar phase of your game. Return to the various phases of your game and reevaluate.
