Post 2019 DG New Year's Resolutions - what's yours?

I use to be course bagger a long, long time time ago. For 2019 I want return to my roots and see if I can double my courses played on DGCR from just over 100 to 200 courses played for the year.

That would be a new course every 3.65 days. Maybe I'll aim for 50 instead

My goal is to play more rounds in 2019. With work and family I was well under 100 rounds for 2018. Might try to play a tournament or two next year but I usually regret it when I do.

Only other goal is to get a decent forehand within 300’. I have it dialed in from 150’ and in burn I have nothing off the tee.

I lost about 120 pounds since I started Disc Golfing. The exercise helped but it was mostly modifying my diet to be low carb, grain free with intermediate fasting.

About 20 of those pounds were muscle.

My goal for 2019 is to strategically build that muscle back. I have become a better golfer, but my distance has dropped.

I played 5 full rounds all year after a car accident slowed me down for 2 months and then a short hospital stay shortly after led me to throwing in the towel for the year. What makes that even worse is that my primary course is pretty short with most holes between 200 and 300. So, I'm aiming to play more rounds, hopefully at least 30 which is about once per week in the decent weather.

I also will do more field work with my drive. I've tried "fixing" so many things at once that it just feels wonky. I'd also like to try to at least be able to break 300' consistently.

I have a ton of slower speed understable drivers (Leopard-esque drivers). I want to spend time figuring out which discs actually work well for me.

Get back to practice putting a couple of times per week.

A couple of them actually:

Not to let the fact that others, who don't have as much time to DG, keep me from playing more rounds this year. With the upper midwest climate DG season can be a very short one, like this past year of going straight almost from summer to winter. I intend on getting back to my weekly solo rounds, weather and health permitting.

To meet more frolfers on the course closer to my age. I'm gonna be 61 in a few months and while I can sometimes stay competitive with guys 30 years younger than me (and who have about 20 years more experience than me!) I just don't have that long game. 300 foot drive on a good day for me, distance wise. I intend on talking to more of the guys I occasionally see during my weekday a.m. rounds at what I call my home course. I want to see if maybe someone would like to meet on a certain day of the week for a round or 2, check on any types of leagues at the course, etc.

I guess if you put the 2 dg resolutions together they actually spell out one main thing: to DG more!!

Play for score less, practice more - even if it's at a course. Better quality rounds and not so much quantity.

Lik most here, to play more... and my emphasis will be on the exercise and health benefits of playing more often, and more holes in a day...
