MacIntyre Could Be Now Puchasing Mum A New House With A Made In Denmark Win

Ultra-talented Scottish lefty Robert ‘Bobby’ MacIntyre could be looking to now buy his mum a new house should the Scot pull over victory in the Made in Denmark.

MacIntyre, 22 brilliantly muscled his way into a share of second in posting third round 68 to trail Austrian giant, Bernd Wiesberger (67) who three-putted the last for bogey and lead by one at nine-under par.

MacIntyre capped his round with five birdies, including birding the ‘Beer Tent Tee’ par-4 14th for a third day running in bright but bitterly cold conditions that had many fans wrapped in blankets about the Himmerland course near Aalborg.

MacIntyre also managed birdies at two, 11 and 13, and his only bogeys at three and 12.

He said: “I am really pleased with my round as I played well out there today.

“My caddy and I got a couple of winds wrong out today but aside we will continue to keeping doing what we are doing.

“My short-game is sharp while I’m continuing to hole some good birdies putts.”

It is the second Tour event for MacIntyre he has put himself in frame for a maiden Tour success.

Last fortnight, MacIntyre secured a share of second at the British Masters to earn a tidy £230,000 and easily his best finish in 13 events in a rookie main-Tour season.

MacIntrye immediately promised his mum a new kitchen in the house where he grew-up, overlooking the 12th tee at Glencruitten Golf Club, and where his father, Dougie has been the head greenkeeper for over 20-years.

At home also is two older sisters while the MacIntyre’s have two foster children.

MacIntyre loves everything about the West Highlands and had also set himself a goal at the start of his rookie year, and was last November in Hong Kong, to earn around £100,000 and maybe buy himself an apartment closer to Oban Airport.

Well he’s tripled that amount in pocketing £322,000 in his 13 events to buy a handful of apartments.

Now he’s staring at a near £Stg 1/2m prize cheque should he join compatriots David Law (ISPS Handa Vic Open) and Stephen Gallacher (Hero Indian Open) as Scottish winners on this year’s European Tour.

Victorious 2012 Ryder Cup captain, Sam Torrance is very impressed with his young countryman.

Torrance, called the shots for SKY Sports, said:  “He has a lot of great attributes and I will be watching his career with much interest.”

Scott Jamieson broke 70 for a first time in three days in signing for a 69 to move to share of 11th place on four-under par.  The Florida-based Scot grabbed six birdies but also had four bogeys.

Also, at four-under is Richie Ramsay, who was five-under for his round through 14 holes, and also have birded the ‘Beer Tent Tee’ hole at 14 for a second straight day.

However, Ramsay then bogeyed his 15th and 16th holes in a score of 68.

And Craigielaw’s Grant Forrest signed for a 70 to be two shots further back on two-under par.
