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.
