The boy’s been taken out of Oban, but can Oban be taken out of the boy? It seems unlikely as Robert MacIntyre appears to be unfazed even by his exalted company in the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open this week.

Justin Thomas has been looking for ways to get match-ready for next week’s Open Championship, and he figured his method of coming to the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open beats Tiger Woods’ solution.
He has been a professional for over a decade, won big tournaments on both sides of the Atlantic and carried the tag of ‘Scottish number one’ for a few of those seasons on tour.
