Tournaments and stuff can support you, but to me that seems like trying to break into show biz.

Fisher K and Brandon has my vote. It's important to start on the bottom rung and work your way up as you build a reputation and network with others. Take a look at Horton, he started in college guiding here and there, and he was dirt broke. He built himself up tourney through tourney and meeting and greeting. Now look... More
