I am 64 years old and I have been playing for over 50 years. I did not take lessons until I retired a couple years ago. Last week I had a lesson with a new instructor, Ryan, later that same day I played Tijeras Creek with my buddy Dennis. On the 5th hole Dennis hit first and he suggested I change from the 8 iron in my hand to a 7 iron. I took his suggestion and the rest is history. Thank you Dennis and Ryan !
