    Haha yeah :lol: and yay :jive: that must have been atleast 10 years ago (I think he was only 18) Well basically, there are two types of pro, the tour pros who you see on tv (theyre on the PGA tour) and teaching pros (the pros you have lessons from).
    To be a tour pro you have be so so good. Usually they are a "+5 handicap" before they decide to turn pro, they then have to go to Madrid (I think) to be awarded pro status. You also have to play in (and win) a suffienct number of PGA competitions per year (mainly to be invited onto other competitions).

    To be a teaching pro, you usually have a degree (eg sport management) and then have to be either -5/-6 handicap. You can usually join as an apprentice to an already established teaching pro too

    Hahaha you think so? Haha phew everyone else who I discuss it with falls asleep :rofl: Okay well;

    when you play on a golf course, there is a course 'par' which is the number of shots you are supposed to take around the course. Eg par 67 means that the total number of shot you should take around the course is 67 (or less if you are really good). the handicaps come in to make the gam fairer for all the players, as some are better than others. Your handicap is measured by how many hots you are over the par. Eg, my handicap is 12 so that means I usually play the course in the course par + 12 (so I go round 'to par'). my dad's handicap is 6, so he usually goes round par + 6. The lower the handicap the better the golfer (so some really good people of +5 have 5 shots ADDED at the end of the game!)

    When you are a pro playing in the major competitions, there are no handicaps (we call this playing off scratch). So there is no score adjustment at the end of the round


    Phew that took some explaining! Please ask if I have said something you are unsure of!
