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.”
