Response to Do adults succeed? Do we get any better?
I used to "suck" at golf too. About 15 years ago I would have been really happy to break 100. I then stumbled onto the Heard Super Swing which instantly cured my slice (but brought on some other minor issues)... and brought my score down to the low to mid 90's. Found this forum years ago (10 years?), which enabled me to find the Scott Hazledine/IMA way to play golf. Have dabbled in other books as well - always trying to educate myself about the game. I have stayed away from all CG instruction. Yes I practice almost every day (15 minutes or so)... even in the winter I will swing a power fan, a weighted club, a super light club... something. I now play a few rounds a week and score in the low to mid 80's with plenty of rounds in the 70's. Low score of 73 on a par 71. Shot a few 74's on par 72 courses. And of course, the occasional bad round in the low 90's still is present. My goal for this year is no rounds in the 90's and a handicap of 7 would make me happy. Currently a 10.2
My point being, yes we can get better. Bertholy is the best bet - but alot of work. Too much for me actually. So I stick with IMA, and do the drills often. Practice the short game... and putt well - that will definitely help.
