Matt Parziale has been celebrated a bit recently as an amateur… when really, the guy is a former (and failed, you could say) pro golfer who got his amateur status back. Many in golf feel that these "lapsed pros" shouldn't be able to get their amateur status back, or if they should, they should have to wait longer than a year or so. I don't really care too much myself, but I care enough to start the topic, and to discuss it. What do you think the rules for regaining your amateur status back should be? How long - or how much success - at being a pro should make you ineligible? Where do you draw the line between golf professionals and professional golfers? Just to give it a bit more space - so that people can enter their own posts instead of immediately debating whatever I end up posting as my take - I'm going to hold my take for a bit and just leave it as an open-ended question for now.
