So, You Want to Start Your Professional Golf Career
Ok so you want to learn how to be a pro golfer. You watch golf on television every week and watch PGA and LPGA tour players battling it out for huge purses and you want to be part of it.
Well good for you!
But before we begin, and just to be clear, what you want is to make your living playing in golf tournaments for prize money right?
This is quite different from becoming a golf professional who works in the golf industry as either a golf instructor/coach, golf shop retailer or in some aspect of golf club management.
Professional golfers are a growth industry and many young male and female golfers from every corner of the world are now considering this career choice over many others. And I do mean career choice, as any golfer contemplating a life as a professional golfer must realize that you have to be in it for the long haul.
To be a professional golfer you have to love golf and the idea of competing in tournaments so much that you will devote a large part of your life to it.
This is not a decision to take lightly. Obtain information and education, that will help you to make an informed decision.
Preparation + Hard Work Will Trump Talent
You have to manage your game so that you can continually lower your competitive score average even when your golf scores are already around par or better.
