Bob makes a major impact in New York
Three majors played, three cuts made – Bob MacIntyre continues to impress on the biggest of stages.
The Oban left-hander showed once again why he is one of the rising stars of the game with a gutsy performance at the US Open in New York.
With a host of big names, including Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson failing to make the half-way cut, Bob found himself teeing up over the weekend at the brutal West Course at Winged Foot with his plus-six score squeezing him in right on the cut line. Although he didn’t quite have the weekend he hoped for, with rounds of 76 and 79 effectively stalling any prospects of a high finish, he will take away a lot of confidence after another week mixing with the best golfers on the planet.
The fact eventual winner Bryson DeChambeau was the only player to finish under par shows just how tough a test this was.
While Bob can take a great deal of satisfaction from his own performance, the big-hearted star will also be delighted his 10 birdies raised $35,000 for the Hurricane Laura relief fund in Louisiana where Bob went to university. All in all, an excellent week’s work.
