The Dan Plan: 10,000 Hours to Become a World-Class Golfer?

In the north west corner of America there is currently an experiment running that may have a significant impact on the lives of every human being. It may prove that nothing, literally nothing, is beyond the powers of any individual. In all likelihood, you won’t have heard of this groundbreaking experiment, but The Dan Plan may offer hope for future generations to achieve all that they aspire too in life.


The inspiration for the plan comes from a theory pioneered by Dr. K.
