Is that event that Dan is playing today? I'm dying to see how he does . I personally don't think he will break 80.

Lol, but, seriously, don't do it. Your character is more important than anything else you do.
That's a hard lesson to learn. Being too honest sometimes has the reverse effect of showing your character. Your game is really good, you just need to let the committee make the decisions and just lay back and enjoy your golf.
People have said if he doesn't break 80 I don't believe his handicap is 2.3.. Then we have people saying I can totally believe that a guy can shoot a 90 with a +2.3.. How is that not comparable? They are both playing in a qualifier of some sort with the same pressure.
I'm new to this thread. Haven't been on this site in quite some time. I'm rooting for Dan, but I think he has a much better chance of shooting 90+ than shooting somewhere around 76. I'm not sold on his 2 or 3 handicap. Hopefully he can prove me wrong.
I don't see him doing it either.. he has said that his average rounds have been 74-80... then add tourney conditions and pressure usually its about 3-5 strokes higher than a normal round. So I am thinking he will fall into the 79-85 range. But its good to start somewhere. Tourneys will make him better.
Get your popcorn ready!
Here's a guy doing a sort of Dan plan on his own dime. His earlier junior experience is sketchy, but he's not using any pretense of proving a hypothesis and wandering into pseudo science land. If what he says is true, 2 months to break 80 and shot 77 1st round in a web.com event after 2 years of full time playing after quitting his job. I'd rather follow this guy if he blogged.
This guy is at least moving to the right area to golf, So. Cal. of course! Palm Desert!
Seriously, this guy has a better chance than Dan with another 10,000 hours added. I think we called it "talent".
I don't think we do. We'll get to see hisfull hole-by-hole score, but we're still (I suspect) not going to find out anything until after he's completely finished.
At least that's how it works in the tournaments I play in. There certainly aren't any live scorers following us around, but after the round the organizers upload everything into bluegolf.com and so there is a record of everything.
