PGA Q School: Where Golfers Go to Get Their MBA’s

There are a lot of good…let me re-phrase that…Excellent golfers out therePGA and those who feel they are up to the 7 days a week job of hitting golf balls for a living have to go through THE MOST difficult test golf has to provide.  You have heard that the US Open is the true test of golf…well put three weeks of US Opens together, make it a 36 hole per day event on a half dozen different courses with different playing conditions in several different parts of the country and you have the PGA Qualifying School….yes folks the PGA Tour is a job.  It is work and these guys.  Though they make it look easy, they are the CEO’s of their businesses and it is up to them, nobody else, to make the revenue.  Come up short and usually you have to start all over if you want to stay in this business.

Most people just see the glitz and glamour the PGA Tour puts on the events and may think it is a party for a bunch of rich people…well take a look at the list of the players who fought it out last week to get their Tour Card…don’t see any rich kids in that field… 

 

Here’s to you guys…and good luck in 2007.
