Bob Macintyre’s struggles continued last week at the BMW International in Munich, Germany.

A second round 74 saw him miss the cut by one shot and he is now perilously close to falling outside the world’s top 100 golfers in the official world golf rankings.

There were no signs off the disappointment to come after a bogey-free 67 on the opening day left the Oban man inside the top 10 going into day two.
Speaking after the round Bob was upbeat about his game, saying: ‘I’m striking in the middle of the club face and I’m seeing the golf I used to play a year-and-a half ago.’

That it all went so wrong on the Friday will be of real concern to Bob and his team going into a pivotal stage of the season. He has three huge tournaments coming up, starting with the Irish Open today (Thursday) followed by the Scottish Open the following week and culminating in a visit to St Andrews for the 150th Open on July 14.

With all three tournaments carrying huge world ranking points the Oban star has a huge opportunity to find his form and climb back up the rankings where he belongs.
