I live in Michigan so I don’t exactly get to play golf all year long. I have recently tried getting instructions at an indoor golf dome in Okemos, near Lansing but I don’t know what else I should do to get my game in gear, or if I am a fool wishing for that lucky pot of gold. I realize that golf is an expensive game but what other steps could be taken to improve my game and how can someone appreciate the game of golf as they did as a kid if they play the sport competitively.

Depends on your definition of the word “pro”. A pro in the golfing world is simply a member of the PGA, which is not the same as the PGA Tour. A PGA member is simply a person whose profession involves golf, usually club pros/instructors. I believe requirements for the PGA are somewhere in the neighborhood of a +3 handicap, I am not sure of that exactly. The PGA Tour, however, is a completely different animal. The Tour is the competitive side of the PGA, just look at a leaderboard on a Sunday to see what kind of game you need to make it out there.
