What is the different between amateur and professional sports?

A amateur has less experience and is not as good as a pro While this is a good description of the meaning of the words "amateur" and "professional," but in sports it's often a matter of whether or not the player is getting paid for participating in the sport. It used to be that professional sports players could not play in the Olympics, only amateurs. College basketball players would be amateurs, NBA and WNBA players are professionals. It was felt that some countries' amateurs (primarily capitalist countries) were at a disadvantage to players whose countries (primarily communist countries) supported amateurs. In 1986 this changed, some sports allow professionals. It's up to the International Olympic Committee. see the forum for the pbs newshour for the july96/olympics_7-23.html

What is the difference between amateur golf balls and professional golf balls?

There is no difference between golf balls that amateurs and professionals use. Yes you could say that professionals only use the high end golf balls, whereas amateurs use any ball they buy. The professionals may have their name, a sponsors logo or special numbers on the ball. But in terms of playability there is no difference.
