Best Answer

Amateur status is defined by the USGA and R and A as simply not a professional golfer. The maximum amount of money an amateur can win is £250 / $500. If an amateur accepts a prize of greater than this they are deemed to have broken the rules of amateur status and therefore become a professional golfer.
