Recommended Reading: Stephanie Connelly on the Futures (Tour) Market, Lisa Mickey on Christine Song
My slowly-recovering back prevents me from playing, caddying, or even attending the pro-ams at the Futures Tour's Alliance Bank Golf Classic this week in Syracuse, but I do plan to be walking Drumlins East Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I'll be sure to check in on Stephanie Connelly, who just wrote a fantastic post at Waggle Room about the actual costs of a season on the Futures Tour. Think on the order of an Ivy League education for a year! That's why it's so important for teenagers who turn pro early and make the FT their alma mater to have their heads screwed on straight and take advantage of their opportunities. And that's why it's so good to hear about and from 19-year-old Christine Song, who leads the FT money list with 4 events left to go in their 2010 season.
