    Perhaps solely British Open champion Shane Lowry left Royal Portrush on Sunday a lot of happy than Robert MacIntyre, the young Scotsman who tied for sixth in his initial major championship.
    The 22-year-old left-hander from Oban, already with a combine of contender finishes on the european Tour this season, created his debut a unforgettable one and more increased his growing name as one to keep an eye on.
    He created only 1 bogey during a stellar three-under-par sixty eight in tough conditions on Sunday, once the wind blew and therefore the rain fell, simply however it’s meant to be in links golf he observed.
    And he may hardly are happier once capping off his week by sinking a extended birdie at the ultimate hole.
    “Highlight of the week has to be holing a 15-20-footer on 18 there. The hair is standing on the back of your neck when that putt went in,” said MacIntyre.
    “Unfortunately that placet wasn’t to win the Open however it’s put Maine in sensible position for the long run.”
    The result can boost MacIntyre’s world ranking to the sting of the highest a hundred, and he is a healthy 14th on the European Tour’s Race to Dubai season-long ranking.
    Now he can have 3 weeks off before power train up for the tip of the season, and he will definitely savour his recent kind.
    “You never know how many of these you’re going to get,” he said of his Open appearance.
    “For the first one, it’s been a dream come true. It’s time to enjoy this one.”
