Robert Macintyre’s bid to secure a tour card for next season’s USPGA tour suffered a major setback last week when he failed to make the cut in the opening leg of the three-tournament Korn Ferry Tour finals in Boise Idaho.

Despite a superb 67 on Friday, the Oban golfer was unable to fully repair the damage done with his opening day 74 and finished two shots short of the cut mark.

With two tournaments left in the play-off finals, Bob now moves on to the second leg at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship in Columbus Ohio starting on Thursday, August 26, and will know that a huge performance is required to get him back into contention for a top 25 place.
