There is a young golfer striding faraway fairways shooting pars and birdies and making his mark under the standard of Zimbabwe but with ‘Made in Scotland’ stamped all over his remarkable rise to prominence.

Trust Makanidzani – even his name could sound Scottish if you try hard enough – lives a traditional village life in eastern Zimbabwe close to the Mozambique border and he is soaring up the sport’s leaderboard thanks to equipment sent from Perthshire, coaching set up by the R&A and funded by Scottish benefactors and a helping hand from world football’s hottest property, Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Braut Haaland.
