The 2015 Golfer’s Bucket List!

Edited. Original source: Kerdowney.com

Happy New Year! I am sure you have already declared your resolutions for 2015 — and a week in, I’m sure you are sticking to them, right? Since it’s a fresh new year, I decided to make a list of all the things I want to accomplish this year in regards to golf. Call this The Golfer’s 2015 Bucket List. Read it, print it out, keep it somewhere close by. And one by one, cross off the ones that you accomplish over the next 12 months. I’ve incorporated a variety of skill levels from nearly impossible to pretty damn simple, so you should be able to at least get a few of these checked off.
