Shark Tank’s Kevin O’Leary Tried To Convince 2017 Masters Low Am Stewart Hagestad To Go Pro
Stewart Hagestad was the low amateur at the 2017 Masters. Unlike most amateurs who have played in the Masters before him, the 25-year-old Hagestad has no intention of turning pro. People keep asking him if he is going to do it and he keeps saying he wants to get his MBA and have a career in business. Here’s how that will turn out…
Although he has no intentions of turning pro, Hagestad has been taking advantage of his newfound fame by doing some TV appearances. This morning he was on CNBC and while he was on Shark Tank‘s Kevin O’Leary took the opportunity to plead with him to follow his dream.
This is a refreshing take. Finally, someone had the balls to tell him, on live TV, what everyone has been thinking. And that is, “GO PRO, BRO!” Or, in a much more long-winded version of that, “You’re 25-years-old, you finished the Masters T36 which is better than a lot of very accomplished professional golfers, and you have the rest of your life to be a fucking financial analyst. Why are you not at least trying to play professionally? MY GOD, STEWART, I WANT TO SHAKE YOU.”
It’s his life, he can spend it or waste it however he sees fit. I get it. But at the same time I really don’t get it at all, because I’m not a rational human being and I can’t understand why anyone who doesn’t already have millions of dollars just chilling in their bank account would walk away from this opportunity.
