Five years ago, Dan McLaughlin decided to quit his day job to test out the fabled 10,000 hours rule, the one made famous by author Malcolm Gladwell  that says that it takes about 10,000 hours  of practice to be exceptional at anything. So Dan took up golf. He's now more than half way through his 10,000 hours of practice. We spoke to him two years ago and we'll find out how much his game has improved.
