Any updates from the guys who were going to be on tour a year or two after picking up the game?

The ones with a "tour level" iron and wood game, but who need to improve their putting?

What about the two who are going to walk up the 18th at Augusta together on a Sunday?

How about the one with no backup plan, meaning he had no option but to succeed?

Or the ones who think it's just about how much you "want it"?

Maybe even the ones who are in their 30's, but used to play baseball? What's going on?

There must be at least dozen of you out there.

Love to see some egg on the faces of the haters.

Anyone down to 12 yet?

Anyone made the final 32 of their Junior Club Championship?

Just asking! ;-)

I would have walked up the 18th fairway at Augusta but for some reason I didn't get my invitation. Lost in the mail I guess.

(Maybe next year). ;-)

turns out I just don't have the distance - based on the posts here, I figured I can't even try until I get my full 8 iron up to about 230 yards

not there yet......

I'm here. As you know, m y short game is lights out, and my putting is absolutely at a tour level. My wedges are dead on point and my irons are solid. I could not warm up at all and have them lights out in one swing. I feel like with my length and how solid my irons are, if the ball is in the fairway all day, just go home, you're done. Write the check right there.

As long as you want it, it'll happen. It has to.

Here are some of the those guys and their respective threads. I wonder where they are now (well, except one: we know where @mjbond23 is. Hope he does well out on the mini-tours).

@FutureTourPro

@Travis Robinson

@Skruf93

@mjbond23

He's already followed up though and is about to start on the minitours. Good for him, actually going for it.

I'm just including him because he's technically apart of this group.

@radycardia

@tsdnorton

And my all-time favorite:

@804golfer


I'm not a hater (but still consider me someone who knows it's a snowball's chance in hell), but it really would be interesting to hear what these guys (except mjbond of course) have to say about this now, a few years later.

You guys remember any of the other threads on this? I couldn't have just found all of them.

I gave up the dream of being a tour pro.  Apparently you have to consume a lot of drugs and have sex with a lot of skanky women.  But there are some down sides as well.

My next dream is to beat Usain Bolt in both the 100 and 200.  That one will have to wait a little as i pulled a hammy in a pick-up beer league softball game.  And at 57, i don't heal as quickly as i usd to.

I woke up this morning and realized I'm 54 and my HC is 13.  Time to enact the back up plan!

Do they have a mini-golf version?

Busted! But a nice effort by @jetsfan nonetheless.

    • I have come to the conclusion that some shots just aren't worth attempting. Sometimes Stroke and Distance is the easier way out.  1) the duffed tee shot that ends up rolling down a steep slope into a lateral water hazard. You're hitting out on a steep slope - lucky if your ball stays on it. Your local knowledge of the course says "f*** it." You re-load +2 strokes and stripe one down the middle of the fairway and get a B or DB. Be thankful. It could have been a snowman. 2) the shot that ends up in the tall fescue... deep in the tall fescue, but you know you can find it because you know the course. Your local knowledge once again tells you to abandon the ball and take a S&D and drop a ball and just hit a shot because hacking your way out of that thick dry grass is a total nightmare. Stop and pick up your first shot on your way... that $4 ball is still usable. Now a pro or low handicapper might actually try these shots, but for us higher handicappers these make blow up holes. Stroke and distance can actually be a lifesaver at times. It is something that can always be used.
    • There is one reason to have the latest greatest equipment.  If you love having no money in your bank account and can't afford to play golf anymore, then the newest clubs are a must have.  Don't get me wrong if I have a club in my bag that is not working I will replace it.  But I will buy last years model from a second hand seller, and still have way better equipment than Sam Snead or Bobby Jones ever played with.
    • You know, sometimes. I have found though that as I have improved, my times have gone way down. An hour and a half to walk nine. It used to take me over two hours. I don't hurry any more than I did, I read the putts the same, I still take a practice swing or two. I actually hurry less, I used to pick up on holes, or not even look for balls and just drop one. It's just that now I progress towards the hole significantly with each swing, balls are easier to find if they are usually in the short grass, This past weekend, I hit a bucket before playing, the range is right next to the first tee, across a little drive. A couple got to the first tee in a cart just as I walked to the range. I hit a whole bucket of balls, crossed the road to the first tee, and they were still playing the first hole about 150 yds out from the tee, looking for balls, I think. Anyway, they waited for me on the second hole and let me play through, so I couldn't be mad. But wow.
    • FWIW, I had a long (forced) layoff from golf a few years ago. I basically had to start over from day one. The reason for my layoff required that I start slow, and easy. I started with my putter, and worked my way from there, back to the tee box. You can "google"  learng the game backwards for more information. I know it works, because I have seen it it work with a few golfers. Obviously getting quality, personal  instruction is probably the better way to go. However, it's pretty difficult to find that quality instruction, unless you do your home work, and can find the right instructor, and more importantly have the time/money to spend with that instructor.
