For me personally during winter golf in Minnesota, I feel I have a great chance to deuce any hole 275ft anytime. 300-325 ft holes I can comfortably reach in the summer now are a rare feat to reach. Last winter I was struggling reaching 250 ft at all, now I am disappointed if I only get there which during certain longer courses I do run out of gas towards the end. Here are my winter expectations

Putting:100% inside 15ft, 90% inside 20, 75% 20-25, 60% from 25-30, 50% from 30-35 anything else is a bonus.
Upshotsinpoint accurate with my 08 drone, have a forehand to get out of trouble inside 150ft
Drives: Be accurate and hit my fairways all day long so then I can give myself a chance. I have realized very few courses, even longer ones kill me if I stay in the fairways, even only throwing about 275ft in the winter.

Summer goals:

Putting:same exact concept
Upshots:same concept except get my forehand out to 225ish which I did last year because I could do runups you cant do in the winter.
Drives:The longest drive i ever threw was 365ft, I feel if I can get out to 350ft consistantly all day long I can be a solid open play. Maybe not a 1000 rated guy but I feel I can shoot consistant 950+ golf with occasional hot rounds. I do want to get out to 400ft on my open bombs this summer, golf is much easier when you can bomb.
