From being outside the world’s top 600 in September 2018 to finishing sixth in his first ever major championship at The 148th Open ten months later, Robert MacIntyre’s golfing ascent has been rapid.
A pair of runner-up finishes at the British Masters and the Made in Denmark tournament helped secure his place at Royal Portrush due to his Race to Dubai ranking for the 2019 season and the Scot took full advantage on the Dunluce Links.
He’d agonisingly missed out on a place at The Open in 2016 when he lost in the final of The Amateur Championship to Scott Gregory, so three years on, the opportunity to play at his first major was extra special for one of the sport’s rising stars.
