Alicia and I really did a nice job of making the last seven days feel like a real off-season.
I looked back on the year and thought about what worked and what didn't. Here's what I came up with:
A lot of what I did worked! I'm proud of the plan that I had and my commitment to it. I improved in almost every area of my game.
The two areas that stand out to me as needing improvement are resting and putting. I'm constantly going 100 miles per hour and by the end of the season, I was worn out. I love what I do and love to work hard at it, but overtraining can eventually become counterproductive. To address this, I'm going to build a few more light weeks and off weeks into my practice schedule and be intentional about resting on Wednesday mornings during tournament weeks. With regards to my putting, I believe that my practice routine became a little stale this year. My putting felt great in practice all year, but my performance on the course wasn't good over the second half of the year. I'm not going to make any drastic changes, but I am going to mix a couple of new drills into my putting practice repertoire.
For the most part, I really liked what I did during the 2015 Web.com Tour season, and I want to keep doing it moving forward. With a few modifications in key areas, I'm confident that I will thrive.
Alicia and I are traveling today to kick off the 2015-2016 PGA Tour season in Napa, California. I'm currently finalizing my Process Goals for this new season, but my Outcome Goals are ready, and I am ready to get after them!
