But the squabble in the playground between Mac and Ham (good dish by the way)
gives me pause to consider something.
Exactly what does it mean to be a golf "pro"?
There is a body of concrete knowledge about
teaching the swing that is small enough that
most twelve year olds could master it in a short
span of time. Most "pros" but certainly not all
can play the game with a degree of expertise. It seems
to me that anyone who can play the game well and
is a good communicator could call himself a "pro"
without fear of being sued or disbarred and could
create for himself a source of income.
So what exactly is a golf "pro"?
