For the past 8 years, I have been trying (and failing) to become an average golfer. I found an un-discovered passion for the game and have been working to get better each year. Over this period, my uncle and friends have spent countless hours on the beautiful courses watching me hit a ball 50 yards, curse, and sometimes throw my club in anger. I commend them for their patience, because it happens much more frequently than it should. It seems I have reached my potential as a self-taught golfer and part of it is my fault for not putting in a better effort to learn/spending the money to take lessons and learn the right way. I have tried and failed at teaching myself to golf. What lies ahead is a serious investment to improve my game. The question is….is it really worth it?
