Rory McIlroy all but earned his tour card by finishing third in the Alfred Dunhill Links in his second start just three weeks after turning pro.

Phelan makes his move as Schwartzel dominates
Kevin Phelan continued his impressive start to his professional career with a solid third round 68 in the Alfred Dunhill Championship at Leopard Creek.
