Of course, some great college players CAN do it but anyone who is absolutely great can try and qualify if they had the game for it.
NBA on the other hand is different because their recruiting is very heavily based on scouting college players. You can be the best street baller from Brooklyn, but you won't get discovered that way. This is why great street ballers neve get recognized because scouts don't goto the streets to recruit.
This is not true for golfers, though sponsors may find college players to play for sponsors exemptions but thats a very small number. If you have the money and the game for it, you can try to qualify for an event.
