    You are a role model for all the duffers who can’t break 100 playing right handed. Mehbe they should switch to the sinister side too… 😀

    Andrew, awesome display of patience and having a plan, hope you reach all your lefty goals,

    I did the same thing at the age of 51, now 8 years into the journey, need some clubs? Have a couple sets I can send you if you want some choices.

    Reply to email,

    Love it. This is awesome. It’s a solid testament to the value of playing shots that make sense for the hole. Each hole is a problem set, play the shots the help solve the problem the best. Well done, sir. Well done.

    Amazing! This is really great content and interesting to see/follow. Keep doing it and why not make some videos where you hit the range, practice etc. some as well.

    Keep it up Tursk, all the best from Sweden

    You’ve trained and played left handed before because you can’t transfer the kinematics of a right hand golf swing to the left side so quickly. Confess….

    This is insane! Highly impressive. Really fun to watch. I do suspect that the road to 90 and below will, in comparison, take forever, but I would have bet money you wouldn’t have broken 100 on the first round out, so who knows.

      With the way he’s chipping and putting, I don’t really think it’ll be that far away. He left a handful of strokes on the course that could’ve been easily avoidable, and I suspect those kind of shots will start disappearing with a little more time on the course. As long as that short game doesn’t drop off, I’m pretty confident he can get under 90 relatively soon.
