Making New Year’s Resolutions? Be sure to consider how you’ll improve your golf game in 2022.


As we head into the final weeks of 2021 and make our plans for New Year’s Eve, the end of the year is always a good time for reflection, for taking stock of one’s current situation, and setting intentions for the coming year.

Every year, millions of people make New Year’s resolutions, hoping to spark positive change. Common themes include a more active approach to health and fitness, improved finances, and learning new things for personal and professional development.  

So, as we look ahead to 2022, I’ve considered my own goals for the coming year in several areas, including how I will continue to improve my golf game.

Forming a Game Plan

Number one on my list of Golf Game New Year’s Resolutions is to work on my putting. In 2021, I had round after round with multiple 3-putts…rounds where I’ve racked up 40 putts or more. To me, that’s low-hanging fruit. I’ve been grasping at straws and changing up my grip from week to week. Instead, I want to work on honing my stroke, better reading greens, and learning to judge speed. 

Earlier this month, I had a putting lesson with Wisconsin PGA Teacher of the Year and Golf Digest’s #1 teacher in the state, David Roesch. Roesch used SAM PuttLab and Trackman technology to assess my putting stroke and gave me several tips and drills that I can put into practice immediately.

He also helped me get professionally fitted for a new putter which will arrive in January. Knowing my new Meridian putter is custom-made for me will give me more confidence and trust; plus, seeing how cool it is will undoubtedly make me want to use it more (for practice, not extra strokes!). Bonus: These putters are milled right here in Wisconsin

And, thanks to Perfect Practice Golf and TPK Golf, I’ve already procured several training aids like the Perfect Mat, Alignment Gate, and Mirror. Now I can work on improving my putting all winter long from the comfort of my home. With these new tools in hand, I am excited to get to work on my number one golf resolution. 

What about you? How are you planning to improve your game in 2022?
