unpopular opinion: golf has the worst ROI per all the effort and money put in it to improve

I've never had a lesson in my life. There is a ton of great info out there that is free. Even before the internet there were books and videos that one could rent or cheaply buy. Golf clubs can be had cheaply, and if one uses the used market you don't even have to sacrifice quality to get them cheaply. Practice though does take time, but that is true with any sport or complex activity.

The main cost for me is driving range balls, but 15 bucks for an hour and a half of entertainment isn't any worse than going to a movie.

But the satisfaction of striking the ball cleanly and watching it fly is well worth the little I've invested in the sport over the last 25 years of playing it.
