golf scholars hip me:
Exactly how does one transition from being an amateur to a pro?
It goes without saying that most of the highly visible pros are white dudes, and generally middle-aged to older ones, at that.. Besides Tiger, Vijay.. Who else is out there from Gen X/Y? (Celebrity enthusiasts don't count!)
What kind of ‘recruitment protocols' find young golfers to go pro?
Naturally, private schools and moneyed suburbs will have more resources for student golf programs.. And of course, most of the courses are in suburbia..
My dad and his brother were into golf for many years.. My dad passed away before Tiger really blew up, though..
I've attended a few clinics, but haven't really got the ‘bug' yet..
