Robert MacIntyre's mother HELPS MAN after health scare at BMW PGA

Robert MacIntyre's mother came to the rescue after a spectator collapsed at Wentworth in round one of the BMW PGA Championship. 

A man fell to the floor while following the three-ball of MacIntyre, Alex Noren and Graeme McDowell on Thursday, and it was there that Carol MacIntyre was on hand. 

The man was attended to by Carol before he was eventually taken to St. Peter’s Hospital in an ambulance with a police motorcycle escort.

“She knows what she’s doing," said Robert MacIntyre.

"She’s done nursing stuff. She’s a jack of all trades. She’s not a doctor or can diagnose something straight away, but she knows the basics and she knew to cool the guy down.

"I was watching what she was doing, but there were more people than just here there to help. She’s some machine is Carol Mac."

MacIntyre would eventually card rounds of 74 and 69 but it would lead to a third consecutive missed cut on the circuit. 

The Scot held every chance of earning one of three captain's picks in the European Ryder Cup team, but his recent form saw Padraig Harrington decide to look elsewhere.

Harrington picked Shane Lowry, Ian Poulter and Sergio Garcia as his three wildcard picks for the clash against United States at Whistling Straits in two weeks time. 

MacIntyre needed to win the BMW PGA last week in order to automatically qualify for the team.
