I would like to break into the 900s so I can get out of the rec. Class, and play in the masters class without beingthe worst player there.
By then, I may be looking at the same goal but playing in grand master

Just put together a spreadsheet book to see what my rating is right now. Looks like I'll be making it to 990 at the next update, give or take 1-2 points. Based on 2013 alone (removing my 3 rounds from 2012) puts me at 991, give or take. So Right now 2013 is right on pace. Hopefully I can heat up in the coming months and boost that near or into 4 digits for the first time. Ideal stepping stone to where I want to be long term.

Really my biggest goal is to be able to go out on any given summer and show that I can play. If anything has been learned the past few years (2011/12) where I never practiced, worked a ton, and didn't play in the off season AT ALL its that it feels very frustrating to know you haven't backslid as a player because of deteriorating skills, but because of deteriorating time. It makes you really want to get out and just KILL IT every time out because you feel like you're letting down sponsors and you feel like there's a whole group of newer players that have no idea how good you used to be.

Whenever I was making excuses, saying I was playing piss-poor because I just wasn't hitting the course often enough I felt like there was a LOT of eye-rolling behind my back, "Surrrre...." - it feels good to finally have time again, because I despise that feeling.

Like right now watching a few local guys CH and TSG - Both of them were once 995-999 level players, had legit ratings and were very very good players. When I talk to new players now though, they have NO IDEA. I mentioned what an amazing player TSG used to be and some guys look at me like "That guy? Really?" They have no clue. I don't want the locals looking at me like that, thinking "What, that guy used to be good? Seriously?"

My goal is to make the disc go in the basket.
