Robert MacIntyre joins Bounce Sport Stable

Robert MacIntyre, who will tee up for GB and I in next month’s Walker Cup match at Los Angeles, has joined Grant Forrest and Ewen Ferguson in the Bounce Sport stable – as he takes the same path as his former Scotland team-mates to lay down the foundations for a professional career. 
MacIntyre, pictured, the world amateur-ranked No 14, is delighted to have signed up with the Edinburgh-based management company on an am-to-pro agreement after watching Forrest and Ferguson benefit enormously since they made the same decision last year. 
As they did with Forrest and Ferguson, Bounce Sport will help MacIntyre, a 21-year-old left-hander from the Oban club Glencruitten, make a smooth switch to the paid ranks after he brings down the curtain on his amateur career. 
MacIntyre has been selected along with compatriot Connor Syme for the 46th Walker Cup, which is being held at Los Angeles Country Club on September 9-10. Forrest and Ferguson were both on the winning Great Britain and  Ireland side against the Americans at Royal Lytham two years ago. 
"I'm delighted to be joining Bounce Sport for the next stage of my golfing career," said MacIntyre, winner of the 2015 Scottish Amateur Championship at Muirfield. "It's been something I’ve been thinking about over the past year and to finally get things going is great. 
"Bounce Sport have done a great job with Grant and Ewen at the end of their amateur careers and the start of a new chapter for them in the professional ranks as both guys look like they are finding their feet well."
