10000 hoursTheDanPlan.com:┬áDan McLaughlin had never played golf when he decided to see if 10,000 hours of practice would turn him into a pro. That’s the theory of Anders Ericsson, popularized in the book “Outliers,” by Malcolm Gladwell. That theory maintains it’s the number of hours that makes you a musician, an artist, or even a golfer. Dan quit his job, hired a golf coach, and worked on this full time. His handicap went down to 3.1 last November after around 4,200 hours, but it’s back up to 5.5 in April, his most recent tally.
