I once found a very badly bent 9 iron in a tree while golfing. Still haven't found a mash tun though.
I think it could be like golf that way for a lot of people, however, a golf score is generally a binary item. It's either a stroke or not. And you count them.
With beer, it's a very subjective thing. What could be a badly flawed beer to some people might be liquid gold for another. I think at a certain point most people will be very satisfied with their beer, but then there are lots of styles to "perfect", so doing all of them great justice may take a while.
