WATCH: Robert MacIntyre in seventh heaven after securing Masters invite

Robert MacIntyre made no bones about the fact that his upcoming Masters debut will be a childhood dream come true.

The 24-year-old Scot secured his place in the top 50 of the world – and thus his invitation to Augusta – after making it all the way to the Last 16 of last week’s WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Every player inside the top 50 as of March 31 receives a Masters invite, and MacIntyre admits he can’t quite believe he’s about to receive his.

“It’s been a long time I’ve had it in my sight, so to finally do it is just going to be — when that letter or email comes through — it’s just going to unbelievable,” he said.

“It’s something I’ve worked my life for, it’s something that not many people get an opportunity to do — and to finally get a chance to do it, and to see it, I mean it is going to be unbelievable.”

MacIntyre watched the Masters many times as a child and dreamed of one day playing there, but like most, he thought it would probably never happen.

“That’s just what I’ve dreamed of as a wee kid. You watch it, year in and year out, and you think ‘I’d love to play there one day’, but realistically you think ‘It probably won’t happen’.

“But I’ve put the work in, and people around me have put the work in, and it’s been rewarded.”
