Posted by on   /   Posted in golf reviews

Robert MacIntyre has just made the crack along with his fellow ScotWorld Super 6, Lake Karrinyup, PerthLeading three-round scores: -10 P Langfors (Swe); -9 P Dunne (Ire) K Rietan (Nor) B Kennedy (Aus). Selected others: -7 B Evans (Eng); -6 C Syme (Sco), R MacIntyre (Sco). Failure to cut: -6 T Murray (Eng); -2 G Forrest (Sco); Par R Ramsay (Sco); +2 T Lewis (Eng); +6 D Law (Sco).

Robert MacIntyre says that he and his friend Connor Syme understand that it is a "murdered or killed" situation as they prepare to meet on the World Super 6.

They are the only Scots among the 24 players from a field of 156 to make it the six-hole match play format from Sunday in Perth, Australia.

These will be reduced to the winner through a series of heads-to-play heads.

"It's six holes and it's a sprint," MacIntyre told BBC Scotland. "You have to go there and attack."

The 22-year-old Oban is currently on his debut season in the European Tour, while Drumoig's Syme, who is a year older, his virgin had years at that level in 2018.

"It will be a friendly match, but there will not be too much talk," MacIntyre said before repeating the draw.

"There were about 10 balls left, so five more bands, and I just turned to him and said:" You realize that you and I will be against each other & # 39 ;.

"My name was called, so I went up to the podium and I saw them opening the ball for whom I was playing.

"Connor's name was reversed, but I could still see it through the paper and I just looked at him and nodded – and he was coming."

& # 39; Started laughing when my name came from & # 39;

Connor Syme's spectacular 18-hole putt helped secure his place

MacIntyre and Syme want to follow the victory of fellow Scot David Law's European Tour title at the ISPS Handa Vic Open in Australia last weekend .

Per Langfors from Sweden top scorer after three rounds of stroke on the World Super 6 on 10 below, one ahead of Ireland, Paul Dunne, and the two partitions in a group of 11 out of six, which is a playoff got for the remaining 10 places, with the English Tom Murray standing up as the unlucky loser.

Syme, who previously won Down Under, lifted the title of Australian Amateur in 2016, took a spectacular break on Saturday, March 18 to secure his place in Sunday's struggle with his friend.

"It's angry, is not it?" Syme said. "He started to laugh when my name came out.

" We grew up playing together and it's six-hole match play and everything can happen.

"I and Bob are friends off the track, but if I'm in that matchplay situation, I could play against everyone, I'm just in the zone."
