The older play­ers can re­lax. Jin Jeong won’t be tak­ing their money for a few more months.

The only am­a­teur to make the cut at this Bri­tish Open tied for 14th, a fin­ish that would have earned him al­most $88,000 if he was a pro­fes­sional. Jeong, 20, said he’s put his plans to turn pro in Septem­ber on hold.

“I can play the Masters next year, and I re­ally want to play that tour­na­ment,” the Bri­tish Am­a­teur cham­pion said. “So I’ll prob­a­bly stay am­a­teur un­til then.”
