Why Are Golfers Delusional?

I have a nephew who was drew attention from a Colorado Rockies scout when he was 16. signed a college scholarship, and was red shirted. He played with some pretty solid pro prospects on that college team, but when he saw what they were giving up to possibly make it to the pros, he decided it wasn't for him. Apparently baseball was their whole life, even to the point of missing class, no social life, giving up just about everything for baseball. he quit his sophomore year, completed his education, and went on to law school. he's now a practicing attorney.,  happily married with a baby, and appears to have no regrets.

And isn't that the truth have got friends family that really believe their son will be a pro footy player or Snowboarder because of some basic skills performed at very young sub 6yr old age ...I don't like to burst their bubbles ... I grew up with an uncle that was a Jnr All Black ... so had a father that only wanted me to focus on that sport 100% ... after many years I just ended up hating the game .... with my kids I just want them to enjoy and love sport and the game of golf ... no pressures

This is a fact! I played beer league softball for about 20 years. Anyone who's met me knows I am no athlete. I am much better suited to teach math than PE. Having said that, I cannot tell you the

    • Hello and welcome to TST. What one may gain from updating clubs can vastly vary. Club head technology has certainly improved with the ability to get the ball in the air and to be a bit more forgiving than older models. The shaft plays a very important role as well, maybe even more important which is why a fitting can be very beneficial. As far as expectations…hard to say. But at the very least you’ll know you’re optimizing one area of your game by having the best irons for you. Cheers.
    • Unless you have undergone swing changes I wouldn't expect any change at all.  The lofts might be stronger which could make you think you've gained distance when you haven't. 10 year old cavity back irons of good quality aren't much different from brand new ones. Your golf doesn't improve when you get new irons unless you were playing something with the wrong shaft or clubs with little or no built-in forgiveness.
    • That’s up to the respective governments to determine. Many countries only require proof of a negative test. 
    • I am sure that it wouldn't be mandated. I don't think one should be allowed to travel internationally without proof of vaccination.
    • I heard David in FL's pool hall will begin to require passport cards beginning on Monday...             😁
