Bill Young, "Sixtysomething"

Old career: Technology sales
New venture: Golf pro

Young rode the 1990s Internet boom as a tech salesperson, but his mind was always on the golf course —so he quit his job in 1999 to become a full-time golf pro. "Believe it or not, it's pretty easy to do," Young says. The key, however, is having a good golf game. He's a scratch golfer. Young started working at golf courses and teaching golf clinics. Now he earns as much as $48,000 per year "with a lot of side perks, which include golfing every day," he says. Oh, and guess what: Those trips to Hilton Head? Tax deductible.
