    Post 2012 Goals

    So what are your dg related goals for this year? I meant to ask this before the new year but it slipped my mind.

    Here are mine in no particular order:

    1) Play 3-5 new courses
    2) Devote more time to putting and field work
    3) Play atleast 5 sanctioned events
    4) End the year with a rating of 860 or better
    5) Get 3-5 new people into the sport and help them learn

    Win my first PDGA event.
    Cash in Advanced
    rated higher then 900
    Shoot a 1000 rated round.
    Win the lottery and become a touring Pro

    I am sure only a few will come true. I am most hopeful about the last.

    Most hopeful about the last, but you should have more focus set on the other ones. The one you should start with is obviously you're first goal. Obviously, winning your first PDGA event is very fun, but then again every win is fun. I have 2 intermediate wins and 1 rec win, and they all feel equally as great. Looking for my first Advanced win this year. BTW, shout out to the All-Stars who gave out actual trophies to first place winners in the 2011 Pumpkin Bowl. I like that more than any amount of discs I have won. Having a trophy to be able to display for people to see is awesome. You can't really showcase a stack of discs.

    Play 17 new courses to bring my total up to 150.
    Review 30 more courses on DGCR for a total of 130 reviews.
    Continue to work at and improve Seviren to keep it one of the top rated courses in the state of Indiana.
    Get one new course in the ground.
    Cash in 75% of the tournaments I play.
    Improve my tournament rounds so they're more like the scores in my casual rounds.

    That's awesome news! I haven't played the Henderson course either so that's on my to do list this spring.

    Let us know if there's anything we can do to help you guys out.
