Futures Tour players get creative
What should a mini-tour player do when the economy goes south and sponsorships dry up? Take money-making matters into her own hands. That's exactly what a group of five Futures Tour players have done by starting GolfProGirls.com, a subscription website where the very photogenic players (you may recognize Susan Choi, Amber Prange and Charlotte Campbell from former seasons of Golf Channel's Big Break and Highway 18) offer up tips on travel, gear and golf instruction with the help of 10 top-ranked PGA professionals.
Think this is a D-list operation? Think again. Rick Martino, Laird Small, Todd Sones and Gary Wiren are among the featured teachers, and the website design and video-production quality are top-notch. Membership costs $6.95 a month or $60 a year.
