Robert MacIntyre Biography – Robert MacIntyre Wiki
Robert MacIntyre is a Scottish professional golfer who plays on the European Tour. He claimed his first European Tour title at the 2020 Aphrodite Hills Cyprus Showdown.
MacIntyre started to focus on golf at the age of 17 after growing up playing his favourite sport, shinty. Between the ages of 13 and 17, MacIntyre played for his local club, Oban Camanachd in his native Scotland.
He enjoyed a fine amateur career by becoming the first player to win the Scottish Youths’ Championship and Scottish Boys’ Open Strokeplay Championship in the same year. He represented Great Britain and Ireland in the 2017 Walker Cup where he beat rising star Cameron Champ 6&4 in the singles.
MacIntyre shone in his maiden season as a professional by finishing inside the top 15 of the Challenge Tour Rankings in 2018 to earn a European Tour card.
MacIntyre burst onto the world scene in 2019 as he finished 11th in the Race to Dubai and picked up the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year award after a season that included three runner-up finishes and a tie for sixth place in his Major Championship debut at The Open.
He secured his first European Tour win the following season at the 2020 Aphrodite Hills Cyprus Showdown. With his win, MacIntyre climbed to a career-high of 62nd on the Official World Golf Ranking and into the top-25 on the Race To Dubai. He has also earned himself a cheque for €200,000.
“This is what I’ve been working for,” said an emotional MacIntyre. “It’s been a difficult few months for me. Only my family know what’s been going on. I just can’t believe it. I can’t believe it.
“It’s what I’ve dreamed of since I was a little kid watching Scottish Opens at Loch Lomond. I gave myself a lot of chances last year and this week the format suited me and we took it out.”
