Robert MacIntyre is a great ambassador for Glencruitten Golf Club, Oban and beyond and it is worth mentioning some of what he has achieved over the last year.
He's had another stellar season with him finishing 5th in the European Nations Cup In February. April saw him win The Scottish Champion of Champions at Leven with a record 21-under par, four-round total.
In June, Robert travelled to Royal Porthcawl in Wales and narrowly lost 2 & 1 in the final of the amateur, narrowly missing invitations to The Open, The Masters and The U.S. Open.
The following month saw him as part of the winning six-man Scottish team for The European Team Championship, where they defeated Sweden in the final.
He was selected for the Great Britain & Ireland team for the bi-annual match against Europe. Robert, at 19 years of age, was the youngest in either team by two years. The Great Britain & Ireland team for The Walker Cup is usually gleaned from this team.
He finished third in the European Amateur Championship on 13 under par in Estonia, despite the fact he had no practice round, due to the late arrival of his clubs which were lost in transit.
He was selected for the three-man Scottish team for The World Team Championship held in Mexico.
In Australia in Janaury 2017, Robert got to the semi-final of The Australian Amateur Championship.
He is currently ranked world number 6 amateur and in February 2017, was awarded Scottish Amateur Player of the Year by The P.G.A.
