sure, I would give up the getting up at 5 AM, 1 hour drive in brutal traffic each way, dealing with clients who don't want to hear what you have to say, risk improvement goals, etc etc  ... to play golf for a living.   I wish there was a HELL YEAH option...
... wasn't she supposed to do NFL sideline interviews after leaving TGC - haven't seen anything out of her this year.    Anybody see her doing anything for the NFL ?
A little self-assessment can't hurt going into the new year ...   GOOD: - Driving way more consistent - just grooving a nice controlled tempo, and gaining a bit more length to boot. - Sand game - much better, made more up and downs than ever. - Lag putting - hot and cold, but far more hot than cold ... trending well.   BAD: - Approach shots - used to be my strong suit ... leaving too many long lag putts from easy 80-110 yd approach shots. - Green side chipping -...
