Check out the video here.
Dan is attempting to make it on the PGA Tour by putting in 10,000 hours of deliberate practice.
After playing 18 holes with Dan, here is what I learned:
1) Dan is focused and hard working, without taking himself too seriously.
2) He is about 3000 hours in and is already a 6 handicap.
3) Dan is gradually improving, his handicap is continually dropping.
4) He plays about 27 holes a day beyond his practice, he has a swing coach, a mental coach, and works out to better his golf game. He also reads everything there is to read about golf.
5) Dan does a good job of learning, testing and applying. He has a great system for focusing on what works.
6) Dan’s knowledge of the golf swing is amazing. He knows why he hits the shots he does and how to correct ball flight.

7) Dan is incredibly inspirational. He saved up money and is truly living a dream to make it as a professional. Anyone can have fun chasing a dream if they plan and work hard enough. It really is all about the process.
8 ) When you are attempting a lofty goal, there are plenty of skeptics. People are actually angry that Dan is attempting this. That someone with less talent and a late start is attempting something that they have failed at.
9) People have the choice to cheer him on an be inspired, or can hope for his failure so that they can feel better about themselves
10) Dan has only been playing full golf courses with a driver for about 5 months and is already a 6 handicap. He will definitely play beyond his potential, whatever that may be!
