Dream On: One Hack Golfer’s Challenge to Break Par in a Year
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.
