SCOTS golfer Robert MacIntyre has shared the moment he made his first hole in one as a professional golfer – including his emotional celebration.
The golfer from Oban, Argyll and Bute was participating in the DP World Tour Chase The Ace challenge.
In the challenge, he was given 500 balls and one day on the par three 142-yard eighth hole at Pinheiros Altos Golf Club in the Algarve, Portugal.
The 26-year-old is shown lining up one of his shots and offers commentary in a video shared to social media yesterday.
He says: “The fade is the shot isn’t it?” as he unleashes his well executed lofted shot.
As the camera continues to focus on MacIntyre’s face, he says: “Oh oh, just get there, go a wee bit more, cut, spin.”
The video then shows the ball travelling in the air before landing with a bounce onto the green and rolling into the cup to give MacIntyre his first ace.
As the clip cuts back to the Scots golfer he lets out a delighted roar before kicking his legs up into the air and galloping away in celebration down the hill.
MacIntyre continues to chuckle in delight saying: “Get in there, aww thank f**k for that. There we go, job done.”
The Oban native who has twice been a winner on the DP Tour posted the video to TikTok yesterday writing: “Job done, 1st ace as a pro.”
His video has been viewed more than 32,000 times and received more than 3,000 likes with dozens of comments from supporters of the golfer.
One said: “I want to see a celebration like that at the next Masters.”
Another added: “Celebration made me smile, well done.”
A third simply responded: “Class.”
A fourth replied: “You should have been head first in that water.”
MacIntyre made his ace on the 103rd attempt during the Chase The Ace challenge.
MacIntyre turned professional in late 2017 following a successful amateur career which saw him win titles including the Scottish Youths Championship and the Scottish Amateur.
The plucky Scotsman is currently ranked 72nd in the Official Golf World Rankings, ahead of familiar names like Justin Rose and Danny Willett.
