Re: Amateur vs Professional

There are amateurs out here that shoot better then pros, why?

It's a fact of life in almost every area. A pro is simply somebody who does it for money; the amateur does it for love (hence the word, amateur).

There are probably thousands of people within a few miles of me who are fantastic plumbers or car mechanics who aren't pros. Same is true — very talented amateurs — in many other fields of endeavor: music, cooking, sex.
