Oban golfer Robert MacIntyre failed to make the cut at the Hopps Open de Provence last week which was played at the International de Pont Golf Club in Mallemort, France.

Robert had a disastrous six over par in the first round to card a 78 which included four birdies, three bogeys and three double bogeys.

His second round was much better with seven birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey for a one under par 71 for a two round total of 149.

The tournament was won by Frenchman Romain Langasque, who carded a four-round total of 273, 15 under par, to pick up the winner’s cheque for 32,000 euros.

The Glencruitten golfer will be hoping to get back on track as the Challenge Tour moves to Ireland for the Monaghan Irish Challenge played at the Concra Wood Golf Club in Castleblayney, County Monaghan, starting on October 4.
