I'm a 3.0 player that has come in and out of the sport over the last 20 years. I've had no training at all and have a very unique style. I don't think my style is that far from the norm, but it's definitely just what feels right to me and nothing more. The problem is I basically haven't improved in 20 years.... I'm playing the same game (other than better consistency) than I did 20 years ago (with less energy) Will lessons do me any good at all considering that I've done things the way I have for so long? PS> Very nice forum. I've enjoyed reading so far!
