UPDATE:

 

 

McLaughlin stuck to his task for years, but 6,003 hours in, his back would no longer comply. “I couldn’t swing a club for six months,” he says. Today, he’s fine—as long as he doesn’t try to play golf every day. And the Dan Plan is a digital ruin, trailing off mid-stream amid the plaintive questions of diehard fans

 

Barely over halfway through, he’d pared his handicap to an all-time low of 2.6—a mark achieved by fewer than 6 percent of golfers.

So basically, the much quoted 10,000 hours golden rule now has a footnote: "Provided your body doesn't give out before the end."

Waggles excluded? You reach 10,000 in one round.

He had a couple of issues around how he defined the "hours".

For example, he used to count only 3, sometimes 4 hours for a round.

On top of that, he would have had start playing four round tournaments pretty soon if he was going to have a hope of qualifying for the PGA tour by the 10000 hour mark...and he was a long way off playing four round tournaments .

4 round tournaments consume a huge number of "hours" and therefore I think he pulled out knowing he was never going to get there...that and a bad back

Have to say pretty impressive if he had never picked up a golf club before starting. Be happy to reach that handicap. Here is an interview discussing what happened and future plans - https://the19thhole....with-animations

He was way too old when he started, You won't be elite beginning at 30 years old. Most of the elite would have had at least a 15 - 20 year head start on him.
