I am an 18 year old kid, college student, but was never involved with the teams in high school or college now. At my home course I can shoot around par, usually par to 75 is average, my best was a 70, the hardest course by me I've managed to shoot an 83, which by the reactions of my group seems good for that course.
I've never had any lessons, never been taught, so I feel like there's many flaws in my swing and stance, and also feel that with good teaching I could knock a few strokes off a round.
These scores are also with very much below par putting, I can make the greens with ease, and then 2/3 putt way too often. I drive around 280 flat.
But basically my question is, with what I've said, would getting lessons and a teacher be worth it? Could I get into some smaller tournaments and possibly be an above average golfer? Or should I be happy playing as a slightly over par golfer?
