What is the difference between Amateur and Professional golfers?

Amateur golfers have handicaps, professionals do not. Amateur golfers can only win prizes with a retail value of (£250/$500), professional golfers have no limit on their winnings. Amateur golfers may wear shorts in tournaments, professional golfers cannot. Players in PGA tournaments in the US must attend a school to become tour-qualified, and must be members of the PGA or associated world golf organizations. The tournament agreement stipulates a player's behavior, adherence to the rules, and disposition of their rights for broadcast television appearances.

If you are considered a professional golfer why aren't you given a PGA card?

A professional is someone who plays tournaments with cash prizes. To get on the PGA Tour, you must qualify through Q-School. PGA cards are not given, they are earned. A professional plays tournaments for money, accepts money for lessons, takes a job as a golf pro... and yes, to receive a PGA Tour Card, Q-School is one way. There are others. Win 3 Nationwide events. Win the US Amateur. Or be like Tiger.

How many golfers win prizes at The Open?

The Champion Golfer of the year gets the Claret Jug and the first place prize money, second place gets the silver salver and the second place prize money and the leading amateur (who makes the cut) gets the silver medal but no prize money. The rest of the field get their allocation of the prize money, depending on how they finished. Those who missed the cut still get a share of the purse, but it's not very much.

What does champion golfers winner gets?

What do Champion Golfers win? If that is your question this answer may help you.What a champion golfer wins in a tournament all depends on whether he/she is a professional or an amateur. Generally, for at least the professional golfers you see on television, golf and sponsorship is their main source of income. Amateurs, even the best don't play tournaments for the money, but rather for the love of the game, or just to win the tournament. However, before a golfer can turn professional he/she will be an amateur.Professional golfers, if they are really good will (i.e. playing on the PGA,, European, or even Canadian Tours) usually make anywhere from a few hundred/thousand dollars to ten million in a given tournament. Also, with wins come ranking points, the better your finish in a given tournament the more ranking points you obtain, these ranking points rank the golfers in the given tour (PGA, European...etc) from most consistent to least consistent. In addition, the vast majority of professional golfers are sponsored by a golf eguipment company, which means that the company will pay them to wear and use their products...again the more consistently you win and are seen on television, generally, the more a company will pay you. Some famous professionals, like Tiger, Phil, Ernie...etc probably get paid millions in sponsorship, and appearance money. Plus, if they win they get a nice trophy too!Amateurs on the other hand, are not alowed to win prize money, only equipment and prizes, and only a certain amount of those things. I think its probably under a thousand dollars worth. An amateur may not accept prize money because if he/she does then they become professional. Also, amateurs, instead of being paid to play a tournament, must pay to play a tournament (unless they are invited for their outstanding performance in another event)...although in some smaller events like with the local pros in your area not the big tour players may also have to pay to play..It is probably imposible to make a living as an amateur golfer just playing golf...but all the pros even the best were amateurs at one point. Basically, champion amateur golfers win the tournament, a trophy, point rankings (like the pros), a reputation, and small prizes.
