You don't see Lendl, Sampras or Connors winning any golf tournaments, and they usually play a fair number of pro-ams.
Congrats to Scott, but in all fairness he is a "professional golfer". Lendl, Sampras and Conners are amateurs and have never trained or claimed to be pro golfers. In these pro-am event they are the amateurs not the pros.
