    Let's set some handicap goals for ourselves this year and achieve them. My goal is to shave 3 strokes off my cap. I've already dropped .6 since January, so I'm feeling hopeful.

    So post your goal for the year and lets see if we can pull it off.

    I'm not necessarily looking to lower mine, I'd just like to consistently play to it.

    I want to work on my short game once a week and see what happens to my cap.

    LOL!

    AG dropping 3 strokes will get him down to a 0... or is it a +0? :D

    Definitely +0 :)

    3 strokes doesn't seem like much but it'll be tough to do. I'm going to have to get my sh!t together. But in the grand scheme of things, I'm really close to achieving a huge goal for me. I have been doubtful that I could ever do it, but if I do...I'll have to buy some bigger hats.

    3 strokes isn't much when you're talking about going from, say, 28 to 25... but from 3 to +zero is extraordinarily difficult. If you make it, you'll be in something like the top 0.5% of golfers (citation needed).

    Don't. I think it has little to do with natural talent. IMO, anyone can get to scratch. I'm just a complete golf nerd. It's all I think about. I've been obsessed since the day I started.

    Scratch is pretty hard to get to no matter how obsessed a person is... it takes a lot of time on the course (and money) to get grooved enough to shoot par or below consistently. It's not like it's just a matter of the mind. :)

    My goal this season is to play in the single digits and also to get a handful of eagle opportunities this year.
