Nafeza 2 world - "It was my sixth week in a row and if I had played last week it would have been nine weeks in a row on tough golf courses," explained the 27-year-old.

"And I wanted to share something special with the people that really matter to me.

"When I'm on the road there are nice people but they don't care as much about me as my family and friends do.

"You don't win a lot and I wanted to celebrate it with the ones that have helped me get to where I've got to, and who really matter in life.

"So I spent some time with my family then on Friday night we had some friends and family at the golf course and had a few drinks."

The Ryder Cup player will tee off at 12:18 BST in the second round of the US Open on Friday - and that means he will be finished in time to watch Scotland's footballers open Euro 2024 against Germany.

"I was hoping I would get the draw I got. I've not checked the weather, I don't care about that... I just want to see the football game," MacIntyre added.

"We will grab a coffee after the round then sit in the house and cheer them on.

"Hopefully the boys can do an upset. They've got the players and the skill, it's just about executing.

"It's exciting for the whole country and to go back-to-back in Euros - we are starting to build momentum. It shows things are possible. So who knows what might happen."
