Macpherson, who won last year's British Amateur Championship, has forfeited a start at the US Open next month as a result of turning professional following the Masters where he did not make the cut but where he was impressive enough, all things considered.
Macpherson has been attending the University of Georgia in recent times after a solid amateur career in Australia.
