Hayle golfer Harry Hall secured an excellent finish on his professional debut at the weekend.

Twenty-two-year-old Hall finished tied 15th at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on the European Tour, with his score of 17 under over the four rounds earning him just over 56,000 euros.

He shared 15th spot with 2019 Open winner Shane Lowry, and finished two shots better off than the European Tour's flagship PGA Championship winner Danny Willett and four-time major champion Rory McIlroy.

Hall, who is based in Las Vegas, played alongside the Northern Irish world number two in Sunday's final round at St Andrews as he shot a seven-under round of 65 – his best of the week.

Hall expressed his delight with his weekend on Instagram, posting a photo of him and McIlroy on the tee, saying: "Had the most amazing week making my professional debut on the European Tour at the Dunhill Links.

"What made it even more special was that I got to compete at the home of golf on a Sunday afternoon with Rory McIlroy! Thank you to the Dunhill Links and European Tour for the invitation."

Hall started his week with a two-under round of 70, followed by back-to-back four-under rounds of 68, before his excellent final round of 65.
