Thanks to the green of the last hole, Robert MacIntyre won the ticket to the WGC-Dell Match Play knockout round.

On the third day of the tournament – March 26, MacIntyre was at a disadvantage during the match against Adam Long. Still being led by the opponent 1 Up when he entered the hole 18 par4, 371 yards long, MacIntyre needed a draw to continue. At that moment, he mutated his tee performance. After he swung the driver, the ball reached the end of the fairway and rolled into the green, 0.8 meters from the hole.

From that position, MacIntyre records the eagle and then achieves the expected result.

“After nine holes, I was led to 3 Up. To hole 10, my own caddy encouraged but I really lost my direction. By the last hole, I played as usual, the ball will pass the slope but will not roll. So I have to hit low to take advantage of the rolling momentum. Luckily I can avoid the trap on the left, “MacIntyre analyzed his own tactics. “And it was one of the best at the same time the best of my life,” he commented, laughing at himself.

In fact, the ball crosses the slope in front of the green. As it rolled in, Dustin Johnson was about to close the hole, 1.9 meters away against Kevin Na. Johnson stopped hands, then held par. Both matches left the tournament and MacIntyre entered the knockout round. The next match, MacIntyre lost to Victor Perez after 14 holes. MacIntyre is a Scottish citizen, born in 1996. Two years ago, he won a new European Tour title.
