ha wow thanks guys, lots of good chatter, lots of great insight. I don't really think any of you are wrong in what you are saying and I really do understand how hard it would be. I think Bob Rotella said that your local club pro doesn't couldn't hold his own against the mini tour pros, the mini tours couldn't hold their own against the nationwide, and so on.
That percentage is probably pretty accurate, about a 0.01 percent chance or so. I think the biggest thing here is that you only live once and I'll be kicking myself in 20 years that I wasted my shot at following a dream.
I am motivated and I have the determination to try and why not give it my best shot.
I like the videos that were posted very nice!
And ha when poser said the percentage, I thought of that Dumb n Dumber thing right away and then Jetfan posted that LOLOL.
I played 9 at brightondale in kansasville wi. The front 9 of the White Birch course. I forget the distances but I played the blues which have to be around 3700 so it was an average course I'd say.
I don't want to get tangled up in my score that day because it was obviously the smallest sample size and you can't take anything from that because the next day I could(and just might) shoot a 39 or 40. I was just really geeked about it because just like that, it seems like the practice is making a noticeable and direct effect on the way that I played that day.
The two year goal of getting to par as a previous post suggested. Now that would be a great goal, I'm thinking more realistically but hell yeah I'd like to shoot for that. Two November's from now, I'd like to aim to be a scratch player.
As for my goal about saving and moving, that's still in effect. I do own a house now but I have family and relatives that could then be occupying it. I figure, if I save money and move to Florida and then 5 years later nothing is happening, I'll have money saved up, I'll have my house waiting for me, I'd have given it a legitimate shot, and that'll be that.
I ordered Paper Tiger, the book really really intrigues me from the description. I haven't gotten it and I've been so antsy to read it that I bought it on my iPhone too just so I could start reading ha.
I saw another book called Striking it Rich, which i ordered as well, seems really cool.
Again everybody, good, bad, constructive or not, I appreciate all of the input and insight. Talking with you guys about it really does make it a lot more fun. I feel very compelled to share my progress.
