Three more birdies today takes me to 47 in 41 rounds, staying slightly ahead of the curve.

A third of the way there in just under 3 months. Built a bit of a cushion this month towards the goal. Hope I don't need it, but might be good to have.

Assuming 70 rounds I'll set my number at 35. Seems high but that's the point of a goal right?
5 rounds in and I'm still sitting on 0. It's been a rough start to the season, but my last round showed signs of improvement.

No worries, birdies are a rare bird for mid- handicap golfers (12-16) and above. Averaging between 0.5 and 0.8 birdies per round is about what that hdcp level should be getting.

For sure. They'll come eventually

Two more today, 49 birdies in 42 rounds. I've birdied 14 of the 18 holes on my home course so far this year.

2 WOW's to this post o_O
1st, that you've already played 42 rounds this year
2nd, that you're making so many birdies as a 15 handicap (over 1.1 per round)

I'd like to make at least 1 birdie per round. So far in the 4 rounds I have played I have done that. So off to a good start.

I'm targeting one birdie per round. There are a couple of Par 4's that I can see scoring well on. One of the Par 3's as well.

I don’t even know where to set a goal for myself. I guess realistically I’d like to have at least 1 per round but that wasn’t the case last year. Although this year I’ve have 3 in two rounds, so maybe it will be achievable .

That's a heck of a showing in those winds. Been working on the knock down shots?

I was trying but nothing really worked with approach shots. Made a 60 footer from off the green!

That's golf man. The good thing is you kept your head in it. Easy to lose that in those winds.
