I have been playing with a few pro's for the last 3 of months, since this post and I have been competing with them and shooting great rounds. They all told me I have what it takes to compete and do well in advanced. The only issue will be turning of my brain and playing my game. I play with one pro who throws 600' and it is humbling but if I throw 400' and still get my par then I don't feel so bad. The mutant players out there can sometimes be intimidating.
