SCOTS golf pro Robert MacIntyre has impressed fans after being filmed doing keepy-uppies with a golf ball.

The 24-year-old shared the clip on Twitter yesterday asking the Scotland national team if it was “too late for a call up”.

The clip shows MacIntyre, of Oban, Argyll and Bute, dropping the white golf ball down onto his right foot to begin his keepy-uppies. 

The left-handed pro then proceeds to juggle the ball between his two white golf shoes and knees during the video.

At one point MacIntyre almost loses control of the ball as it pings off.

But the Scots golfer somehow manages to cushion it back down and begins a well managed run of touches between his two feet. 

MacIntyre continues the rally and counts up a total of 22 keepy-uppies before finally catching the ball with his hand. 

As MacIntyre completes the impressive rally, the camera man is heard praising the effort, saying: “That’s unbelievable. 

“No one would have had you down for that.”

The up and coming talent posted the video to Twitter last night ahead of Scotland’s first fixture in a major tournament for 23 years today.
