PGA Tour pro James Hahn reveals how much he loved selling shoes to support his career
Golf is an expensive game whether you are an amateur or a professional.
Dizzying sums are involved at the highest level and even Bryson DeChambeau recently unveiled PGA Tour spending.
As players “try to be successful” there are a number of jobs that they must look to to make ends meet or have the chance to get referrals.
In the modern age, there are a large number of gamers who are trying to monetize their social media to give them some breathing space.
But this luxury was not available to the older generation and so they had to accept whatever was offered to them.
PGA Tour player James Hahn, 39, recently spoke to the Sub Par podcast and spoke on a number of topics
One of them being the different jobs he had had over the years trying to further his career.
Hahn revealed that he sells women’s shoes and loves it.
“To be honest with you, selling women’s shoes was so much fun,” Hahn told the podcast.
“It’s just the camaraderie. You see the same guys, and we’re still talking about the customers, the girls we need to serve and so on.
“It was the first job I had where I had to wear a suit to work.
“And every time you wear a suit to work, you feel special. You feel respected.
“Wearing a suit to work, punching in and your punch card and stuff, getting a paycheck every two weeks, that was pretty cool.
“It was probably one of the funniest times I have had.”
Hahn achieved PGA Tour status in 2013.
To go along with his $ 11 million in cash, he won the Tour twice.
These victories were won at the Northern Trust 2015 and the Wells Fargo Championship 2016.
