John Feinstein Goes Inside the PGA's 'Q School'

Plenty of people wish they could play golf for a living, but few are good enough to do it.

Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods are among a few dozen golfers who earn the big bucks. Hundreds of others make a living playing professionally. And some barely squeak by, but keep at it as a labor of love.
