Robert MacIntyre: The numbers behind his brilliant season

Bob Macintyre Statistics

To say that Robert MacIntyre is unlikely to forget the 2019 European Tour season is the very definition of 'understatement'.

The 23-year-old from Oban became the first Scot to be crowned ‘Rookie of the Year’ since Marc Warren in 2006 after a stellar campaign that saw him contest 30 tournaments in 22 countries around the world.

Those 30 events included seven top-10s and three runner-up finishes as the Glencruitten Golf Club man finished the season ranked 11th on the Race To Dubai.

He ended the season more than €2million richer – €2,016,790.73 richer to be exact. But those are just the top-line numbers. Drill down a little deeper and a full picture of just how brilliant a season MacIntyre had soon comes into focus.

Money per event - €67,226.35
Money per round - €19,026.32
Money per hole - €1,057.02
Money per shot - €271.88

Spectacularly good, no?

WATCH - HOW TO SHOOT LOWER SCORES

Of course, to make that kind of money, you need to play exceptionally well – and, again, the numbers demonstrate just how high the quality of MacIntyre’s golf was this season.

For one thing, he had a stroke average of 69.98 – one of only 12 players to break 70 in that particular category this year.

He averaged a superb 300.18 yards off the tee, which was more than five yards longer than the tour average. He also outperformed the tour average in driving accuracy, too (58.14% vs 58%).

He finished inside the top-40 on the tour for Greens In Regulation (71.06%) and Putts Per GIR (1.76). For good measure, he bettered the tour average for Putts Per Round, too: 29.42 putts versus 1.78.

It all added up to an exceptional, award-winning year for the Glencruitten man.
