Default 2019 Fish's DG Goals

I know as the weather turns here in MO, i still have a few rounds left in me for 2018. I was thinking about and wanted to have a record of some of my goals for 2019. 2018 was my first time trying to actually get better at DG after a 7-8 hiatus from throwing discs around a park.

2019 Goals:

Play 52 rounds for the year (stretch goal 100 rounds)
Play at least one course out of town (stretch = 5 courses)
Play every course in town at least 5 times. (I play Harmony Bends and one other course a lot more than the other 2)

Record a throw over 300' (stretch = consistently throw 300')
Improve Putting (stretch = buy a basket to practice on)
Improve FH
Shoot even at least once on every course in town (stretch = under par)
Play in a flex league/meet some DG friends


Learn the discs I already have and stop buying some many different molds!!

I hope to look back a year from now and have most of these knocked out especially the last one

"Improve Putting (stretch = buy a basket to practice on)"

I will fix this one for you

"Buy a basket to practice on (stretch = improve putting)".

I made it a resolution for 2018 to play 52 rounds of disc golf, after my TOTAL round tally in 2017 was <20 rounds, including tournaments.

I'm a happier person in general, at my highest player rating, and I'm in the mid 60's with 2 months left still! I highly recommend this goal.

These 3 are on my list along with playing more. I played 6 rounds all summer (it was a ****ty summer physically). The first will require me to really put some time in with my form as it is a mess.

The last is probably the biggest for me. I'm pretty comfortable with my putter choices and mid choices, but I think I've got nearly every brand's Leopard-type disc to try to find the one that I like the most. I'll be spending some time sorting that out while doing field work.

Good luck next year!

52 rounds in the whole year? I play that many in a month in summer.

I thought 52 per year sounded low as well, but then again I'm single with no kids

I'll make my goal:

-100 rounds in 2019
-Accurately throw 350'+
-consistently make 30' putts

I'll keep it short and check back here in a year. Cool thread idea.

Yes 52 for the year, should be easily attainable but being married with 3 kids in sports, my free time can be hard to come by during their busy seasons. Also I love to fish, so that is competing for my free time as well.

Man, I would love to play 52 rounds in a year. 3 young kids and a long commute for work make that almost impossible. Not something I will set a goal on either way though.

Goals would be,

Get consistent at stretching every day so when I do get to play I'm not too rusty.

Improve FH.

Stick to buying the 6 molds I throw and not trying new molds cause they might be better than the one that is already working for me. (with the exception of an US Axiom putter that could replace my Wedge)
