National hero Robert MacIntyre best Scot this century

The Camanachd Association would like to put on record our warmest of congratulations to Robert MacIntyre for an astounding performance at the Masters this weekend.

A debutant at the competition, the expectations were – make a good account of yourself. Once again however, Bob surpassed these expectations massively. Finishing up -2 and tied 12th not only means that he has the best finishing rank of any Scot at the Masters this century, the top 12 (including ties) will all be invited back to Augusta in 2022.

Ambitious by nature, Bob has been quoted in the media this week saying:

“If someone had given me tied for 12th for a start, I’d have taken it,” said MacIntyre. “But then once I started getting into the battle, I could see how people were making scores. Obviously, I got off to a poor start today but I battled back the way I normally do. Disappointing bogeys on 16 and 17, but it was huge birdieing the last.

“This is a place you want to be competing every year. My first time this year, and I obviously put up a decent fight, but once you come here, you don’t want to miss another one. I’m not missing next year for anything. I’ve played some great golf over the last week, and I feel like my game suits this golf course.  

“The way I play golf suits the way this golf course wants you to play golf. I’m just over the moon to finish the way I finished.”

We would once again like to offer our warmest congratulations to Bob on this sensational achievement and hope to see him pitchside at the very least when conditions allow.
