Played first game when I was 14 at our local par 71 course. Shot 104 first game 94 second game and 88 third game. Best I could do in my teens was high 70's and low 80's. Took up the game again about 8 years ago when I was in my late 30's and broke 70 at the age of 40. Almost broke 60 with our course record 62 last year.
Basically I have always had the hand eye coordination to be able to hit the ball but the short game required more than just natural talent. Once I dedicated my self to learning how to chip and putt the scores came down from 80's to 70's.
