A 24-year-old Buckhaven golfer is hoping to make the move into the professional ranks following an appearance at this year’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

James White had initially planned to caddy at this year’s tournament but was instead offered a playing place alongside English professional Steve Webster.

They finished the event with a team score of 16-under-par, but failed to make the cut by five shots.

“We made the score respectable today after dropping eight shots,” said James who wants to turn pro in 2013.

“I got off to a good start, was three-under after five so that got us off and rolling and then Steve made a few birdies after that,” said James.

“I played well today but Steve played really well throughout.

“He hardly made a bogey in three rounds.”
