Setting Goals for Your Golf Game with PGA Golfer Roger King

Whether its hockey, soccer, or life, goals are what we should strive to achieve.

I think a great way to start the 2019 golf season is to sit down, relax, and think about goals for the summer. The goals don’t have to be many in numbers or exact. They just need to give you something to work towards. Make the goals attainable yet challenging. It should be a task that will take work and dedication but should also be fun and exciting to work towards.

First, write down your goals. Put as many as you can think of but end up with a list of 5 or less. Goals can be exact in nature (i.e. I want to break 80) or more interpretive (i.e. I want to feel more comfortable playing with strangers.) Once you have the list, write down 2 things that you can do to help achieve your goals.

I could be the person that says if you don’t reach your goals, you failed. BUT I don’t believe that statement is true. If you make an effort you can be proud of and be honest with yourself about it, then congrats and good luck.

Here is a list of my 2019 golf goals: (I have another list of my non-golf goals also)

  1. Gain at least 15 yards with my driver
  1. Work with the speed stick training program
  2. Get more consistent ball flight
  1. Win 2 VTPGA pro-am events
  1. Continue to work with my mental coach
  2. Don’t add up my score until I am done with the round
  1. Make the cut in the NEPGA Section Championship
  1. Play at least 2 practice rounds at the golf courses
  2. Enjoy the challenge
  1. Repeat as the NorthStar Fireworks/VTPGA Player of the Year
  1. Play each event with a game plan and stick to it
  2. Play the course and play each shot with effort
  1. Play more golf with the golf membership
  1. Schedule time to do so
  2. Ask members to join me during those times

Good luck and please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or to set up time to help you reach your goals in 2019. I hope to help provide future tips and advice throughout the golf season.
