New Year's Resolutions: Golfers, what's on your list?
Just when you think the holidays are behind you, there?s another one looming. This time it?s that all-important New Year?s Eve. Since my wedding almost nine years ago, I haven?t had to wonder who I?m gonna kiss. But I still need to consider those resolutions.
Two years ago, I resolved to exercise more. Last year, I resolved to stop feeling guilty about not exercising more. This year, I?m going to forget about exercise all together. Instead, I?ll focus on golf. Which, incidentally, some consider to be a form of exercise. So here are my golf-related resolutions, in no particular order.
1) I resolve to stop buying more clubs in a vain attempt to improve my game. Sorry, Golf Galaxy.
2) I resolve to get a video lesson. A video lesson is what got me from a 27 to a 16. Maybe another one will take my handicap down another notch.
3) I resolve to take my kids to the course more often. And care a little less when people look at us funny.
4) I resolve to play at least one tournament. Except for the occasional scramble, I?ve always been tourney-shy, afraid of first-tee whiffs and the like. It?s time to get over it.
5) I resolve to break 80. I?ve come awfully close a few times, but never actually gotten it done. My husband broke 80 this year for the first time, and marital pride is on the line.
6) Last but not least, I resolve to start watching the TV show ?Lost.? Everyone?s always talking about it, and I feel totally out of sync with American pop culture. Yeah, I know, it?s not golf-related. Too bad.
So, let?s hear your resolutions!

My list includes:
Play more golf, period! Tournament, single round, driving range, anything!
Not let Chris Baldwin ruin the enjoyment I get from watching Michelle Wie's progress. I am doing better on this already by simply avoiding his blogs altogether.
Start watching the HBO show Rome. It looks very interesting. (since you went with one non-golf item!)
What is a video lesson? Sounds interesting...
Breaking 80 is a good one - I might copy that.
As for tournament playing - good for you! I find "first tee whiffs and the like" are actually more likely outside of tournament play when my focus is down along with my guard. You might find you play better under those circumstances, too!
