I dropped about four points off of my handicap last year (went from 28ish to 23.9).
I started off the season shooting scores that denoted a much bigger drop. Mid season though I picked up a case of the pulls. And instead of going to my instructor to fix it, I just fought through it figuring I'd be able to sort it out myself.
This winter I decided I was going to fix it properly. So I've been taking lessons this winter. Also had the wife taking lessons.
My first goal this year is to drop about 10 strokes from my handicap. It might be an aggressive goal, but I know I can make the shots I just need consistency.
Secondly I want to see the wife's game round into shape. The better she plays, the more she enjoys it (who doesn't?) and if she enjoys it, the more I play!
Lastly I intend to take up clubmaking and fitting. So this summer will be dedicated to learning also!
