Bob McIntyre between Ryder Cup and the Liv

Bob McIntyre, the Ryder Cup and the LIV Golf He had to wait almost two years to get his second win, but it was worth it. Robert Duncan McIntyre, a Scottish native of Oban, won the first time on the European Tour on November 8, 2020.

He won the Aphrodite Hills Cyprus Showdown ahead of the Japanese Masahiro Kawamura. This time he chose a different, more important stage, the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, and an equally important opponent, Matt Fitzpatrick, defeated at the first hole of the playoff.

Right from the start, McIntyre declared that for him this victory is a starting point, a stepping stone to be able to return to Rome next year not only as a defending champion in May, but also as a member of Team Europe in September.

Bob McIntyre, statements

"It's my main goal, my only goal for next season," admitted Bob. In 2021 he narrowly missed the chance to be part of Team Europe led by Padraig Harrington who suffered the heavy defeat at Whistling Straits.

McIntyre often talks to reporters, his desire to communicate is always perceived. And therefore, after the Ryder Cup argument, he could not fail to touch the key of the LIV Golf. The Scot is a great friend of Bernd Wiesberger, and through him he met Patrick Reed, entering into good relations with him too (by the way, the two will cross paths this weekend at the Cazoo Open de France).

Obviously, the question, inevitable these days, was asked: "Are you still friends with LIV players?" McIntyre gave an honest answer. "My job is my business, Bernd's is his" "I don't hate them for that, and I don't hate them in any way" "They made that choice and left."

Regarding the dispute that arose in Wentworth between Sergio Garcia and Keith Pelley regarding the effects of the strategic alliance between PGA Tour and DP World Tour on the fate and value of the latter, the Scotsman from Oban said: "The fields of the participants are important, but for me it's just about playing another golf tournament and trying to win it" "I don't pay attention to the fields, I just try to win other titles" He is only 26 years old, but he has clear ideas. Bravo Bob.
