Amateur Champions who work
You may be wondering why I do not have a list of the great amatuers and there pictures on this page.  According to the USGA this is not allowed (USGA asked us to remove them).  Like the game of golf we will follow the rules and ask that if you would like to know of some of the great golfers and there stories please call or write us.  Below is the USGA' Rule 6. Use of Golf Skill or Reputation.
Rule 6. Use of Golf Skill or Reputation

The following regulations under Rule 6 only apply to amateur golfers of golf skill or reputation. 


 

6-1. General
 

Except as provided in the Rules, an amateur golfer of golf skill or reputation must not use that skill or reputation for any financial gain.

6-2. Promotion, Advertising and Sales

An amateur golfer of golf skill or reputation must not use that skill or reputation to obtain payment, compensation, personal benefit or any financial gain, directly or indirectly, for (i) promoting, advertising or selling anything, or (ii) allowing his name or likeness to be used by a third party for the promotion, advertisement or sale of anything. 

Exception: An amateur golfer of golf skill or reputation may allow his name or likeness to be used to promote:

(a) his national, regional, state or county golf union or association; or 

(b) a recognized charity (or similar good cause); or 

(c) subject to the permission of his national golf union or association, any golf competition or other event that is considered to be in the best interests of, or would contribute to the development of, the game. 

The amateur golfer must not obtain any payment, compensation or financial gain, directly or indirectly, for allowing his name or likeness to be used in these ways.

Note 1:  An amateur golfer of golf skill or reputation may accept golf equipment from anyone dealing in such equipment provided no advertising is involved.

Note 2:  Limited name and logo recognition is allowed on golf equipment and clothing. Further information relating to this Note and its proper interpretation is provided in “Decisions on the Rules of Amateur Status."

6-3. Personal Appearance

An amateur golfer of golf skill or reputation must not use that skill or reputation to obtain payment, compensation, personal benefit or any financial gain, directly or indirectly, for a personal appearance.

Exception:  An amateur golfer of golf skill or reputation may receive actual expenses in connection with a personal appearance provided no golf competition or exhibition is involved.

6-4. Broadcasting and Writing

An amateur golfer of golf skill or reputation may receive payment, compensation, personal benefit or financial gain from broadcasting or writing provided:

(a) the broadcasting or writing is part of his primary occupation or career and golf instruction is not included (Rule 5); or

(b) if the broadcasting or writing is on a part-time basis, the player is actually the author of the commentary, articles or books and golf instruction is not included.

Note:  An amateur golfer of golf skill or reputation must not promote or advertise anything within the commentary, article or books  (see Rule 6-2).

6-5. Educational Grants, Scholarships and Bursaries

An amateur golfer of golf skill or reputation may accept the benefits of an educational grant, scholarship or bursary, the terms and conditions of which have been approved by the Governing Body.

A Governing Body may pre-approve the terms and conditions of educational grants, scholarships and bursaries, such as those that comply with the regulations of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in the United States of America, or other similar organizations governing athletes at educational institutions.

If an amateur golfer is in receipt of an educational golf scholarship, or may apply for such a scholarship in the future, he is advised to contact the national body regulating such scholarships and/or the relevant educational institution to ensure that any third party contracts and/or agreements (Rule 2-2b) or competition expenses (Rule 4-2) are allowable under the applicable scholarship regulations.
