Golfers dream. No matter how poorly one plays, there are occasional flashes of greatness that cause golfers to believe they can harness that moment into an entire round and achieve a career round. John Richardson was a weekend golfer who found it difficult to break 100, so he decided to devote a year of his life with one goal in mind: to shoot a sub-par round. This is no trivial accomplishment. Most golfers are lucky to break 90, so shooting a round under par is like winning the lottery for the average golfer. With the assistance of his golf pro in England and the support of his family, his Quixote-like quest began. Originally published in England, and a bestselling book across the pond,DREAM ON: One Hack Golfer’s Challenge to Break Par in a Year is a light-hearted but endearing tale of one golfer’s quest. It may inspire you to plot out a strategy to accomplish your golf dream. Time and effort are all you need.
