Oban’s European Tour golfer Bob MacIntyre missed the cut in last week’s Scandinavian Invitation at the Hills Golf and Sports Club in Gothenburg.

The Glencruitten left-hander carded a two-over-par 72 in the first round, which featured three birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey on the sixth which proved costly.

Round two was better as he carded two bogeys and three birdies for a one-under-par round of 69, but unfortunately this wasn’t good enough to make the cut for the last two rounds.

The tournament was won by South African Erik Van Rooyen with a superb 19-under-par total of 262.

Bob now moves on to the Omega European Masters which is held at he Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club at Crans Montana, Switzerland, starting on Thursday.
