Robert MacIntyre is a two-time DP World Tour champion who has long been regarded as a future star of European golf.
The 27-year-old from Oban, Scotland, has demonstrated an ability to compete at the highest level, finishing in the top eight at both the 2019 and 2021 Open Championships, and he is now poised to make his Ryder Cup debut.
A former DP World Tour Rookie of the Year, the left-hander realised a lifetime ambition when he sealed his place in the 2023 European Ryder Cup team thanks to a top-three finish in the European Points List.

MacIntyre was born in Oban, Scotland, where he still lives. He is the current touring pro for Glencruitten Golf Club.
The majority of MacIntyre's career earnings have come from his time on the DP World Tour, where the Scot has banked more than £6m since making his debut at the Joburg Open in December 2017.
MacIntyre earned approximately £170,000 for winning the 2020 Cyprus Showdown and £428k with his victory at the 2022 Italian Open, but his biggest payday came at this year's Scottish Open, where he earned £750,000 after finishing second behind Rory McIlroy.
MacIntyre's net worth is estimated to be in the region of £5m, mainly due to DP World Tour career earnings in excess of £6m.
The Scot has also earned money through endorsements with Nike, who supply his clothing, and club manufacturer TaylorMade.
MacIntyre decided to switch caddies in June, rekindling his partnership with Greg Milne, who was on his bag throughout the early part of his career, including when he finished sixth at the 2019 Open.
MacIntyre parted company with Milne in September 2020 in a move he described at the time as the "most difficult decision" of his life, appointing fellow Scot Mike Thomson in his place.
Thomson teamed up with MacIntyre for his wins in Cyprus and Rome, but Milne will be on the bag for his Ryder Cup debut.
MacIntyre plays a Titleist TSi3 driver with Graphite Design Tour AD DI 7 X shaft and he uses a TaylorMade Stealth Plus three-wood and a TaylorMade Stealth 2 Rescue Hybrid.
His irons are also TaylorMade, all fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 shafts, while he carries Titleist Vokey Design wedges.
MacIntyre putts with a Scotty Cameron T5.5 Prototype and he plays a TaylorMade TP5x ball.
Robert MacIntyre is a Ryder Cup rookie. He earned his place in the 2023 European Ryder Cup team after he finished third on the European Points List.
As an amateur, he was a member of the 2017 Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup team, winning 1.5 points from three matches, including a 6 & 4 singles win over Cameron Champ, who would go on to win three PGA Tour titles.
MacIntyre will spend this week in Rome, ready to make his Ryder Cup debut at Marco Simone Golf Club.
