I don't claim to know your finances but I presume, like most of us, you pay to play golf, right?
If so, tax return or not, it's simply a case of "would you rather?"
Would you rather play 72-90 holes (or whatever it is currently) per week, and occasionally waste some time on the driving range accomplishing nothing, all the while shooting anywhere from 85-95 (unless it's a tournament ;)) and almost assure yourself of staying in that rut forever ...
Would you rather cut back to 36-54 (or whatever) for a couple of weeks - one lesson isn't going to cost much more than 2, maybe 3 rounds of golf, depending - and learn what you need to practice, AND how to practice it properly, thus almost assuring that you will get better immediately AND set the foundation for you to be able to continue to improve over time?
No offense, but if those are the two choices, you'd have to be kind of a dummy not to see which is better.
I can't begin to count how many times I have had that conversation and what it really boils down to is the person simply doesn't want to put the effort in but would rather complain about the way they play golf, most often after a bad round. @KyleAnthony I think now is the time to be 100% honest with yourself and it's really no big deal which path you choose it's just better to do what it is you want than to say one thing but do something completely different.
