Re: Did they really beat the game?

Sure you play more rounds as a pro but still, you're so far in the hole it's ridiculous. You would have to play ideally 5 amazing rounds as a pro just to erase one good round as a beginner, and that's not even counting your bad days at all skill levels. Secondly, even if you do somehow play a ridiculous amount as a pro to overcome your beginner scores, you never win. Ever. Everyone is always working on something. A part of their game or swing, mental toughness, course management. Who is ever happy with their golf game? No one. And even if you are, you're probably not good and just playing for fun.
So overall, no, you can't win. Ever. You can try, but you won't succeed, you can't even break even. However, I think is is why we all love this game so much. For the challenge.
