Default 2019 DG Achievements, 2020 DG Goals

My proudest/most fun disc golf moments of 2019:

1. Earning back-to-back 900+ rated rounds for the first time, winning my first (MA3) tournament in the process.

2. Played 50 different courses this year (24 of them new to me). Might bag two more new ones on New Year’s Eve to average 1 unique course per week and 1 new course every other week.

3. Played two tremendous disc golf complexes: The Blockhouse in Spotsylvania, VA and Bill Frederick Park in Orlando, FL.

2020 disc golf goals:

1. Play the three most acclaimed courses in NC: Blackjack, Sugaree, and Ashe County Park.

2. Play Maple Hill.

3. Correspondent Gold and Workout Silver achievements.

How ‘bout you?

Play Harmony Bends
Advance from noob to "intermediate" (improve...everything)
Learn to throw a serviceable 200' forehand
Get into a league or club to find regular partners instead of trying to pick up or solo all the time
Stop OATing when I get tired
Learn to putt
Work from topping out at speed 7 discs to ~speed 9

Finally got to play Flip City (Michigan as a state even). And the Canyons in Joliet.

Hit 4 aces this year (all in September no less)

Set my personal best at my home course (twice)

2020 goals:
1. Birdie/park #5 at Richlands-Steed Park (420' fairly open, slightly uphill)
2. Average under par at Castle Hayne DGC, Wilmington. NC (home course)
3. I can't forehand lefty without pain (I am LHBH dominant), so start learning RHBH
4. Improve my putting to 90+% inside 25' (again)
5. Extend my jump putt range to 100'+

That's awesome, Discette!

+ Two aces in a single day (like wolfhaley, also in September)
+ 17 reviews in four states
+ Added another ~100 courses to this site (mostly in northern Europe)

+ 12 new courses played and reviewed (I know this seems lame, but I think it'll be tough working full-time, school part-time, and a baby due in March)
+ An ace

+ 200 courses played
