Macaulay follows Ramsay into field
for next week's Alfred Dunhill Cup

Callum Macaulay has been called up from the reserve list for next week's Alfred Dunhill Cup over the Old Course (St Andrews), Carnoustie and Kingsbarns links.
Richie Ramsay, another European Tour rookie, was called into the field on Friday following Paul Casey's withdrawal.
Now Macaulay (pictured right by Cal Carson Golf Agency), Steven O'Hara and David Drysdale have all received the call to arms.
Macaulay's inclusion means that the three men - Gavin Dear and Wallace Booth are the others - who won the Eisenhower Trophy world amateur team championship for Scotland in Australia last October are together again as professionals, although heading their own pro-am teams.
Dear's participation will help to soften the blow of falling at the first hurdle in the European Tour Qualifying School Stage 1 Section B process at The Oxfordshire on Friday. Gavin came up one stroke short with a three-under-par total for 72 holes.
Carnoustie's Keir McNicoll, who shot a brilliant 65, to make the cut-off for Stage 2 with nothing to spare has also received a sponsors' invitation into the event.
