Bob makes a ma­jor im­pact in New York

Argyllshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

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.

Bob MacIn­tyre.
