Three of the Great Britain
and Ireland's winning 1999 Walker Cup team will start their professional careers
when they start in the Kenya Open starting on Thursday.
Simon Dyson, Lorne Kelly
and Graham Rankin, played their parts in the thrashing 15-9 win over America's
amateurs at Nairn last September.
Rankin, who has come to
the professional game somewhat late at 33, didn't make the best of starts to
life on the Challenge Tour when he was disqualified on his debut in the Challenge
de Espana last month.
