Best Answer

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.

What is the difference between pro golf scores for men and women?

There is very little difference between men's and women's golf scores, they both shoot considerable scores under par. The difference is that the women play holes from tee boxes that are a lot farther forward than the men, this isn't because they aren't as good, but it is because they do not hit the ball as far. The handicap systems are the same, for amateur golfers are the same for men and women, but as you know professional golfers don't have handicaps.
