Talk to a pro in 250 characters


The potential winner of the Charles Schwab “Talk to a Pro” contest should, among other things, be creative and curt. It’s a duel skill-set that eludes “Shag Bag” but should be low-hanging fruit for the ever-expanding Twitter nation.

In 250 characters or less you need to explain the similarities between golf and investing and “I can’t break 100 in either,” we’ve been told, is not an acceptable answer.

The winner of the contest will win a trip to the Champions Tour’s 2011 season-opening event in Hawaii in January, a spot in the pro-am, a lesson with renowned instructor Hank Haney and a financial plan from Schwab.
