Depends on his family’s financial situation…a white kid from a country club…probably not an issue but who knows. The hypocrisy is universities make millions on these kids but if he takes a hamburger from a booster the NCAA goes beserko. Amateur status is just a convenient gimmick to keep the money in house. Why can a law student intern for money, an accounting major work summers at a PA, an environmental major get paid to clean up the oil spill, a journalism student gofer at a TV station?

He was wearing a Titleist hat during Saturday's round.

Looks like he is playing the St. Jude in Memphis

Had he been a pro, he would have made $94,250 for his T16. Another respectable finish and he would be able to pay for college to fall back on. College will always be there...

If he was a pro he wouldn't have been playing in the tournament. He got the sponsors exemption because he was a 16 year old amateur.

16 year old kid T7 for the championship on saturday. gents, i think we might be looking at the next tiger woods.

Or the next Ty Tryon

true, but why pay for college when you can get a free ride?.......and he could always play in some tour events and then eventually turn pro.....it's apples and oranges (as I can see a agrument for both sides)

Scholarships are renewable on a yearly basis…one douche bag coach has enormous control over the student athlete.

I don’t have a problem with an amateur not getting the $90K prize money as he is not a tour member nor a pro, my beef is on the promo side…Notice Justin had a HP logo on his shirt and another poster mentioned he was wearing a titlest hat..and no way he could make a penny. Why? Easy the NCAA wants that promo dollar for themselves not some poor kid makin $100K for doing a few Gatorade commercial
