And How Was Your Weekend? Just Ask Pro Golfer Bill Haas

Yup, why most of us were doing yard work, bbqing, getting a hair cut, Mr. Haas was busy earning over 11 million dollars via winning the Fed Ex cup. Even better, his little brother, Jay Jr., was looping for him. The standard caddy fee is 10%. Their father Jay Sr., a very good golfer on the regular tour, and now the senior tour, has not made that much cash on the grass, in his entire career.

I can’t think of anything better than making a living, not only for yourself, but your entire family, doing something that you truly enjoy. Good for Bill and Jay Jr. I hope they have a really good accountant, seeing that they are now the target of Obama and those who despise people who have “more” than they do.

    I played golf maybe 5 times in my life, I never had classes on how to play golf so it was mainly just trying to hit the ball without bending the clubs. Sounds like a good hobby and career if someone was good at playing the game.

    I met Mr. Benson a former pro golfer when he was living in Modesto, he offered to give me classes on the basics I never took him up on his offer. Don’t remember his first name now. He was in his 70’s 20 years ago.

    He was old school and I believe a Scotsman.

    Wayne, that is what makes the game so great. age is not a factor when it comes to enjoying, or playing the game. When I was in college, I often played golf with a man named Heck. Easily in his late 70’s. I was in my very early 20’s, and there were times when he would beat me. You can’t say that about too many sports.

    I like the golf, I think it would be an interesting sport to play more often. Do you remember Mr. Chafkin he used to be a teacher in the Ceres Schools. He was a golfer. He was a good guy.

    No I don’t. Being a high school golf coach, I can see how rewarding the game can be. Knowing that you have gotten a student hooked on the game for life, and knowing it is something that they will share with their kids, and family someday, is awesome. I still talk abot my coach fro high school.

    I can see how that would be a rewarding experience. Maybe some day I will learn the game. For right now though I need bigger clubs….LOL!
