Thankyou, this is just the kind of advice i needed. I am in the process of compiling a spreadsheet for estimated costs and what each cost is for at the moment.

Reminds me of Derksen a Dutch pro who needed financial support during his first years as a pro. He started a fund you could enter. The investors were paid by his tour-earnings. And because Derksen was succesfull they got their money back.
