My golf goals for 2018

I started playing golf in 2017 and it has been going great so far. I’ve made a lot of friends on the course, and can’t wait to make more friends once i’m back on the course in April. Where i live, in New Jersey, winters are pretty cold, so i decided to take a break from golfing and wait out colder months of autumn and winter. I haven’t played for about 3 months now, and i’m starting to really miss it a lot. My golf buddies said this would happen, but i thought they were exaggerating, until now. I’ve started playing in April of 2017, and even though i had a rough start, everything turned out perfect in few months. By rough start, i mean the learning curve. It is usually hard for me to learn new sports. Especially coming from baseball, two games are really different and it took some time to adapt to new sport.

 Anyway, now that we’ve covered my last year, i want to dedicate this post to upcoming new year – 2018. In this year, i plan to finally upgrade my starter golf clubs, which were nice when i was a beginner, but i’ve outgrown them since and definitely need newer clubs to keep up with my friends. With any luck, money that i have saved up will be enough to collect complete set of clubs that i like. I’ve seen many releases this year, and golf clubs just seem ten times better than my current ones. Although, to be  fair, they cost ten times more as well. I will probably give away my old club set to someone in need. Maybe i’ll lure my friend to come to golf course with me and get him hooked on golf just like i was.

 I also want to get my wife more excited about playing golf. It’s not that she’s complaining about the time i spend on golf course, but i still want her to get involved and see how awesome golf can be. Right now she doesn’t understand the rules of it, and seems bored by it whenever i watch golf games on TV. I plan to change that, in fact, i’m getting her solaire golf gems for her birthday, which is slowly approaching already.

 Same goes for my little daughter. The only difference is that i don’t have much money left for her golf equipment right now, so her involvement in golf will have to wait until latter part of following year. I genuinely hope she likes golf though, but even if she doesn’t, i’m not going to stress over it or force her to play sport that she doesn’t like. But i promise, i’ll try to do my best to make golf exciting for her.
