It would be incredibly difficult, however, if you are dedicated nothing is out of your reach. It depends on your game really, if you have only been playing the game for a couple of years you will have natural ability so getting down to the +5 mark is a good target. But if you have been stuck around 8 for a couple of years it is unlikely.

There are players who have picked up the game and turned pro withing 3 years so it is do-able. There is always the seniors tours, for golfers of 50 and over this could be perfect for you.

If you want to be a teaching pro, you only have to get down to about 4 or so, so this could be another option for you. Of course there are courses and a playability test which you have to pass.

What was Tiger Woods' handicap?

"Handicap" refers to a numerical representation of a golfer's playing ability. Handicaps are meant to represent a golfer's potential rather than simply be an average of a golfer's scores. While professional golfers do not normally maintain handicaps, their handicap can easily be calculated by entering their tournament scores into a handicap calculator. Here is a link to a guy that once calculated Tigers handicap. According to his calculations, Tigers handicap during that stretch was an astonishing +13.5. Most tour players average around +5 or +6. I do recall back in the early 1990s where a golf magazine calculated Greg Norman's handicap at around +9. Suffice it to say, tour pros are 5 to 13 strokes better than a scratch golfer. What I find most remarkable is that these scores are obtained under tournament conditions, with fast greens and high rough, in front of millions of people, playing for millions of dollars! As of June 11, 2013: Tiger's Hanicap is +6.3 according to
