Setting Goals the Right Way

Episode Highlights

 

Goal setting can be broken into two components - Long range goals and  short range or round specific goals

 

Long Range Goals:

 

These should be as specific as possible and shared with friends and family to help create some accountability on your part..

 

  • Build in a statistical component so you know you’re on track while you’re progressing.

Example: 50% of greens in regulation (be realistic though, pros on hit 70% of greens)

 

  • Define the process that will get you to that goal

Example: Scheduled practices on focused areas of your game

See Peter Malnati's fantastic example here   http://petermalnati.blogspot.com/p/2015-goals.html?m=0

 

Short Range Goals:

 

Going into each round you should avoid thinking about a specific number and instead be looking to set smaller easier to achieve goals that will add up to that number

 

Set percentages of fairways hit, GIR, and up & downs you want to accomplish throughout the round. Focusing on these smaller tasks takes your mind off of the bigger target and lets you achieve on a more consistent basis.

 

PRO TIP - Don’t be afraid to blackout par on your scorecard with a marker. This will help keep you focused on each shot rather the result of the hole.
