There's not much money to be made unless you're on a major tour.

Be aware of the different segments of the $70 billion a year USA golf industry. You have:

  • Golf equipment manufacturing and sales (Callaway, Ping, TM...)
  • Golf merchandising: Selling the stuff that Callaway, etc., makes. Think Golf Galaxy, Golfsmith
  • Golf operations: Managing golf course operations
  • Golf clubhouse operations: Food service, banquets and catering at the course clubhouse
  • Golf instruction: Teach aspiring or long-term golfers at a countryf club, course, driving range, or a golf superstore (You'll' need a PGA teaching card to make $$ at this)
  • Golf events and destination promotion - coordinate with the above five segments to put on events, or draw in vacationers
  • Pro golf tour... you know about this, but there's a lot more to professional golfdom than PGA, LPGA and Champions tour.

If you can help manage inventory, and understand cost accounting, these are a plus for breaking into golfdom.

Remember, you'll probably have to start at the bottom. Realize that age 30 - you're already 27 -  is about the time many of those who started at the bottom a decade ago decide whether to stay in golfdom, or try something else.

If you enter a PGA certification program and work as a teaching pro, you probably could get sponsored by one of the companies. They won't pay you $$ to play their gear, but they would give you a new bag every couple of years, and new clubs to try out and play.

It's like skateboarding.

If you're cool you'll certainly get money.

Just tell them what you want. Make a few calls and you'll get some cash.

If they want to give you stuff like bags and shoes with their name on it just ask for cash instead.

The good looking golfers get the most sponsorship but the ones who are just good players only get bag unless they put out a song or something like that.

Yes, but you won't get a chance to play in the British and US Open.

Hey, if those preteen kids can play in the US Open, women\s, why can't he get into the men's US Open?  It's an open door, if you are skilled enough to find the key.

If you manage that you'd probably already have sponsorship! If you wanna make some money within golf, try lake diving, retrieving lost balls from lakes! There's money in that! If you get really good at you might even make a name for yourself!

    • Looking for new irons - - - HELP!!
      Just bought new irons myself.  It's a process.  Not sure if you're a single-digit hdcp'er or a relative hack like me.  Ether way, here are some suggestions to get you moving in the right direction. 1. As example only, a link to Golf Digest 2016 GI Hot List clubs:  http://www.golfdigest.com/hot-list/golf-clubs/game-improvement-irons 2.  Determine what you expect to get from a new set of irons.  Straighter?  Higher flight? Distance? 3. Identify 3-5 iron models that you think fit your requirements 4. Go to a Golfsmith, Golf Galaxy or other location where you can try irons from each manufacturer, hit and evaluate results on launch monitor. 5. Go with the set that delivers the best results based on your swing. Other thoughts as I just went through the process: Get a thorough fitting.  There is a point at which hybrids might make more sense than longer irons.  My new set starts at 6-iron and include 4- and 5-hybrids on the longer side. Irons and hybrids are NOT the same brand, either. You should be able to order ONLY the clubs you want from reputable dealers. So many sets come 4-AW off the shelf.  That club lineup might not be best for you. A fitting to determine what club complement is best for you is what's most important before plunking down a lot of money. I don't like to be brand conscious when I go though a decision process like this.  Keep it fact-based and data driven and you'll arrive at the best option for you.  Launch monitors don't lie.  At least I believe they don't. You should go into a club fitting with a short list of irons you think might work for you. ASK the club fitter if there are other models he or she would recommend you try.  This should round out your 'possibles' to 5 or 6 at most. Be prepared to make a lot of swings. Bring a glove.  You'll need it. Good luck and keep us posted on your journey. dave
    • What did you buy on your last trip to the golf store?
      No, she doesn't want ME TO BUY new irons, SHE WANTS TO BUY ME new irons. She is probably thinking, hey if I buy him new irons maybe he will spend more time out golfing and give me more time to myself. There is a method to her madness.
    • Custom Headcovers?
      Custom embroidery would be an option. Your initials, a logo or image could be used for a set. Premium Head Covers are available. Caddy Daddy offers the Inferno, Lucky and High Roller Casino based Themed Driver Head Covers. Features include 40,000 stitch embroidery on synthetic leather fabric with inside padding and polyester ribbed sock. http://www.caddydaddygolf.com/driver-head-covers.htm
    • Using Game Golf to Analyze Gaps
      That might be the case. My 4 iron is a more game improvement iron. It's a cavity back versus a muscle back. Also, I do use it off the tee more than the 5 iron, so the lie is perfect.  Maybe my game is more suited for a more GI type iron in the long iron set. It's something to consider looking into.   
    • "The Putting Bible" by Dave Pelz
      The very first thing Dave Pelz says In his book----- after the acknowledgements is. " I want to start this book with a short explanation. Look closely at the title. Notice that  I don't claim this to be  "THE" putting bible. I call it Dave Pelz's Putting Bible because it truly is "my" bible on putting. It is a compendium of my research, my studies, my test results, my teaching philosophy, and my beliefs about the art and science of putting. It is my bible or if you prefer, my notebook or data log  book-into which I have transcribed my thoughts, interpretations of test results, observations, and theoretical work that have been instrumental in forming my understanding of putting. It is also from this work that I draw my philosophy for teaching the putting game in the Dave Pelz Scoring Game Schools".      As far as the 8 seconds is concerned, and with apologies to Mr. Pelz let me summarize on page 122 5.6 Two Types of Muscle Memory Ridding a bicycle is one type of memory (long term) you never really forget. Your mind remembers only the body's most recent sensations (short term memory), and these, too, fade by 30 percent every 8 seconds. True or not I will still take his word for it. As it was done as scientific research. "about as accurate as the story of Noah's Ark"...............don't know, can't say, wasn't there, but will say this. If a booming voice coming out of the sky tells me to build a boat....trust me, I'm building a boat!!
