Watch:The most Emotional Interview Bob Maclntyre and His Father After Winning RBC Canadian Open.

Scotland’s Bob MacIntyre lands maiden PGA Tour title at RBC Canadian Open

European Ryder Cup hero Bob MacIntyre is now a PGA Tour winner in his debut season following a gutsy victory at the RBC Canadian Open.

Scotland’s Bob MacIntyre sealed an emotional first title on the PGA Tour with a narrow one-shot victory at the RBC Canadian Open.

The win was made even sweeter for MacIntyre, 27, with his father Dougie acting as a stand-in caddie for him at Hamilton Golf & Country Club this week.

MacIntyre carded a 2-under 68 to finish 16-under par and see out a narrow one-shot victory over playing partner Ben Griffin, who posted a solid 65.

The European Ryder Cup hero is competing in his first full season on the PGA Tour having earned his card through the DP World Tour Rankings in 2023.

The win for MacIntyre comes in his 45th start on the PGA Tour, and it marks the third of his career to go alongside his two DP World Tour titles.

MacIntyre now becomes just the sixth Scotsman in the modern era to win on the PGA Tour.

He will now vault into the world’s top 40 on Monday morning, and he also scoops a healthy $1.7m first prize.

MacIntyre also earns an exemption on the PGA Tour through to the end of 2026.

Frenchman Victor Perez birdied the 18th for a joint best of the day 64 to finish solo third on 14-under par.

That was one shot ahead of Rory McIlroy and Tom Kim, who also shot a 64 to finish T4.

How can you not love this!?!?!?
