Using that logic why would any pros have teachers/instructors?
 Yeah, he definitely underperformed which brings up questions if his handicap is legit, and I agree it is probably not.
Well considering I would have taken the whole class up until that point I would have an idea of what to expect. How do we know he didn't prepare for it either? Maybe he underestimated the mental side of the game and the difference of tournament golf from "regular" golf. I just think expecting someone to show up to their first tournament and expect them to do well to be in the top half of the field is setting the bar a little high. You can't know the difference until you...
Who is to say that is all he is doing to address that? To say he only went because he got comped in exchange for providing them publicity is just speculation. How would he know how he was suppose to prepare for tournament golf if he had never played it before? Maybe he has not made as much progress as others on this site have made in the same time frame, but he is still only halfway through it. I give the guy credit for having an idea as big as this and having the b*lls to...
I didn't mean it as muscle mass necessarily, i meant more so for flexibility and being able to increase his range of motion. Yes, I know there are some big guys on tour, but looking at Dan's build a little more power would probably help him.
I was suggesting Dan work out not you haha. I was driving the ball at the beginning of the summer about 210-220, now I am up to a 250-260 average off the tee (I would have to look at my golflogix stats haha), but I am hitting my irons farther as well. I was just suggesting this as something I think could benefit Dan, but I have never seen any mention of this by him.
You keep saying more deserving golfers. Do you have any you can name? It isn't like he is taking up sponsor exceptions on tour. If you are really good enough to get on tour you will. If anything the publicity for Dan helps to grow the game if you ask me.
Maybe he should've played tournaments earlier, but it is apparent he was not ready. I just feel like he identified a weakness recently (his lack of mental toughness) and then went about a way of trying to improve upon it. It may be one part of this game, but he was deliberate in that, but it is never good enough for most people here haha. Now the point is he should've done this earlier. I agree he could do a better job of describing his routine and providing a glimpse into...
I was talking about Pretzel saying he has made more progress than him over the same amount of time, but that was not true. He had already played the game before his so called "re-start". I am just curious how long have you played? How long did it take you to get to your handicap? For me personally I started playing when I was 22 after I graduated college. I am 27 now. I played about 10 rounds the summer when I was 22 and never broke 100 and never really played the next 5...
That is definitely a lot of speculating haha. I think his last few poor rounds have really put his handicap into question, and rightfully so. If he was a 2.6 or whatever it is right now I would say that is pretty solid for being a little over halfway to the 10k hours. One of the main issues I had is that after his poor tournament scores people ripped him for not being mentally tough or have the mental game needed for tournament play. Then he goes to a seminar to work on...
