Those are all great goals. Good luck!

My goal isn't really to get better, just play more!

Mine are pretty simple:

1. Shoot even par
2. Get my handicap down to at least 5.5
3. Get my kids out on the course more often

my swing
Actually hit a golf ball and play more than 1 round.

Serious note:

Improve my swing to be consistent don't care if its ugly, steep, over the top...just consistent that I can repeat and work on.
Iron play - I know my SGI irons are supposed to help and give me confidence but I feel like the look of them with the offset throws me off and I might go to something more CB and just deal with the frustrations

Mine is simple. Find free time within my son's competitive soccer schedule and get on the course 3-4x per month. Might have to wait until June!!

What is your lowest score so far? New courses are always fun!
112. Average is a bit higher. Started golf late last summer, played few 18 holes and about 10 niners. So, total middleaged newbie :D

I want to play and practice more.

I want to get my putts down to 30-32 a round. After last year, if I can go a round without 3-putting, I'll dance all the way to the truck.

I want to have better game management and avoid the risky, hero-type shots I try that most often lead to multiple others in a round.

I want to hit half or better of my greens in regulation.

If I can do those things somewhat well, my scores will be considerably better.

I want to get selected for a THP event.

Easy goal right now: Play more. All of this rain has really put a damper on my ability to play. :(
I feel your pain. Through February 23, we’ve had just over 21 inches of rain this year.

I think we're right around there as well. More than doubled last year's totals already. It's been a sold month of near-steady weather since I saw those numbers.

Just one goal: have as much fun as possible. Everything else will take care of itself.

I don't know if a players CB type iron are really that much for frustrating than SGI. It probably depends upon the individual's swing. I don't like that SGI irons come stock with such light shafts.

Well because of work I only get to play every other week. But two things this year.

1. Increase GIR. This is really killing my score. When I play well it’s night and day with the GIR. Need to increase this number.

2. Penalty stokes off the tee. Again I am not doing well with the driver it it’s showing. Going to work with my coach the next couple of weeks as smoother and better off the tee should also help that GIR number as well.

3. Play more. I got 27 rounds in last year. For someone that works every other week and takes the winter off to snowboard I’m still happy with that number. But can always aim higher.
