If I can average one every other round I will be thrilled. Figure that cutting triples to less than one a round and I’m well on my way to high 80s and low 90s. Right now that lack of a birdie and two triples is causing 95/96 averages.

One birdie every other round is my realistic goal. Also would like an Eagle. Had 5-6 chances at eagle last season (2-3 pretty reasonable looks) and did not convert any. (n)

HEAT!
It's all dependent on the number of rounds I get to play. I'll be conservative & just say I'd like to get 2 birds a round .... one at least on both 9's. But I'll take more & won't complain. (y)

The first round of the year and I had 4. Off to hot start. I figured I would play about 40 rounds and 2.5 birdies would be a good average.

This number of birdies game is without merit and you tempt the golf gods to come for you.

You improve your game, you play more frequently, and let the birdies come to you.

About 90 birdies and about 6 eagles. I track my stats and make birdie 7% of the time and eagle about 0.5% of the time. I’ll play about 70 rounds 😊.

But you're too late. Thanks to this we all have goals now. Can't just set them aside. Must achieve!!

One per round would be alright with me. Going through some scorecards from last year (around 50) I scored par or better only 20% of the time. Bogey or worse 80% or the time :(

Instead of calculating how many birdies I want to make I would concentrate more on reducing the big numbers like doubles+
Agree with this. I track a lot of stat's about my game and for me, the % double bogeys and % worse than double bogey are pretty much the ones I place the most emphasis on. It'd be nice to make lots of birdies and eagles but I'm more concerned about how good my worst is than how good my best is.

My best is booming a drive down the middle, hitting the par 5 in 2 and draining the putt for eagle. But that's not useful information is it :ROFLMAO:.

Three birdies and a HIO today take me to 44 in 40 rounds.

I like your thinking on this. My dad always told me when I was a junior, "A bogey can be made up with a birdie, a double can't". It engrained in me to do everything I could to avoid those. Damage control.
