Gavin Dear, who teamed up with Wallace Booth and Callum Macaulay to win the world amateur team golf championship for the Eisenhower Trophy in Australia in 2008, has been resinstated to the amateur ranks after a pro career that never got off the ground.

Dear, pictured, played successfully for four years on US college circuit as a student at Lynn University, Boca Raton and turned pro shortly afterwards.
"I can confirm I have been reinstated as an amateur and am in the process of getting a handicap," said Dear who hails from Scone, near Perth.

"The decision to apply for reinstatement was quite simple because I am not a PGA professional and it would have been very difficult for me to continue to play. Returning to the amateur game allows me to play competitions and contribute to the game.

"I have already been involved in a Perth and Kinross county squad gathering and enjoyed playing again (apart from the snow). I am yet to decide how much I will play this year as I am very busy working at Golf Scholars, Shot Scope and golphinforkids but will hopefully manage to play in the Scottish amateur match-play championship at Muirfield at the end of July.".
