I constantly hear from golfers that they want to be better players.  The question I have for any of you is "What are you doing to get better?"

I see lots of people banging balls aimlessly on the range or running to the store to buy more "hope" in the form of a club right off the rack but is that really the pathway to lower scores?

What's your goal and how do you plan to achieve it? Your reply might be helpful or inspiring to your fellow forum members so please share.

At my age, fitness.  The flexibility and strength conditioning allows me to continue to walk the course and play well enough to keep up with some of the young guys. If I play enough, then I would be looking at instruction.

That's no good.  Maybe some point form in a new post?  Interested to hear it.

I wrote it again! 2 long paragraphs and apparently none of it but the first sentence showed up when I posted it! Grrrr. I'll write it again later while watching the Leaf game in a word processor and copy and paste it

While watching the Leafs game? Should we expect an angry and depressed posting... Kiss

For me this past year was Aweful in terms of golf.  I regressed and mostly it was due to the back issues with the herniated disks. 

This winterI am making a commitment to trying to get my core stronger so I can cope with my back in the coming golf season.  I started going to the gym regularly and so far while there has been progress,  I am not where I want to be. 

Plan for the spring it to get better at ball striking and more consistent in terms of full iron shot distance control, by hitting to specific spots while at the range.
