    Dan McLaughlin

    Golfer in Training, The Dan Plan LLC

    Dan McLaughlin decided, at 30 years old, to quit his day job and become a PGA Tour golfer. The only issue was that he had zero experience in the sport, having never actually played 18 holes of golf. So, he started The Dan Plan, an experiment in one human?s potential. The ultimate goal? To see what is possible through 10,000 hours of highly focused deliberate practice. He has been writing about his experiences and recording statistics since the project began in April, 2010.
