Rookie pro Paul Dunne has adopted the attitude that if he looks after his golf, the money takes care of itself.

So far, so good on both counts.

Dunne's golf has been good enough in his first two Tour events as a professional to bank €87,573 just a month after quitting the amateur ranks following the Britain & Ireland Walker Cup win over the USA.

The Greystones GC member finished tied-19th in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, earning €47,536 on his European Tour debut.

Last Sunday he shot 71 to finish the British Masters at Woburn in joint 25th place for €39,487 - and let's not forget the €550 Dunne received for getting through the first qualifying stage of Tour School on September 25.

This week he has a chance to add to his prize money in the Portuguese Masters at Vilamoura.

Dunne is ranked 173 on the Race to Dubai and barring a sensational performance, his best chance of a Tour card remains at Q-School.
