I guess when you KNOW you're missing the cut, might as well try something new. But was putting really his problem? Averaging 29 putts per 18 holes isn't awful in itself, but its possible he hadn't made anything over a couple feet.
I'm 38yo and even though I have always had an interest in golf I never picked up a golf club until the end of summer in 2019 and I got my green card just before the golf season ended in October.
I practiced during the winter and played my first full round of 18 holes in April last year with 54 handicap.
If there was one silver lining for me in 2020 it was that due to COVID-19 I was not allowed to work more than 60% of my working hours.
That meant I had a lot of free time that I could spend on practice or playing golf so I ended the year with a handicap of 17,2.
Lowest round was 87 on a par 72 course (it could easily have been 80-82 if I can improve my short game 😃).
I'm loving the game even if it can be very frustrating some times .
