The 25-year-old from Oban has decided to try that route after coming up just short in his attempt to secure a card for the US circuit through the points list.

The world No 51 will then move on to Ohio for next week’s Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship then tee up in the Korn Ferry Tour Championship in Indiana the following week.

MacIntyre will then head home for the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth - the final counting event in the Ryder Cup qualifying race.

England’s Tom Lewis secured his PGA Tour by winning the Korn Ferry Tour Championship in September 2019.
