How to Return to Competitive Golf After 10 Years Off

Fore The People


All right, so you watch those guys, you're like, all right, I'm in golf mode now. I'm back in golf mode after a decade off. Like nowadays, it's the whole PD and I have talked about this on the pod before, but it's like, you know, every dude has his track, man.
