COLIN Morikawa stormed to victory in The Open this weekend, becoming the first golfer ever to win two different majors at his first attempt.

Just one player matched the American’s score over the final two rounds – Scotland’s Robert MacIntyre, who secured an unlikely top 10 finish after narrowly avoiding the cut.

Despite placing higher than any other Brit, the Oban man’s heroics did not get the attention they deserved on Sky’s coverage, according to many angry viewers.

The broadcaster has been inundated with complaints on social media after it failed to air large parts of MacIntyre’s final round.

A score of 67 – which included a bogey six after he drove out of bounds on the 14th at Royal St George's – lifted him to seven under and joint-eighth.

On Saturday, MacIntyre had the best round of any players as he flew up the leaderboard with an outstanding 65.

Yet viewers were frustrated at how little they saw of his performance, with the cameras focusing on bigger name stars and even panel discussions among the pundits.

Sky’s coverage was branded “shameful”, with Scots raising complaints from the start of MacIntyre’s final round.

Willie Harrison commented on one of Sky Sports Golf’s posts: “Why don't you show golfers teeing off instead of showing Paul McGinley talking?

“Bob Macintyre had the best round yesterday but you opted to show golfers that were nowhere near competing.

He added: “We pay Sky a lot of money for watching golf.”

Linda Hannah added: “Why are we not seeing more of Bob MacIntyre, the leading British player? Very poor from Sky sports!”

Iain McCallum dubbed the coverage of the Scot “truly awful”, while Keith Henderson said it was “shameful”.

Another Twitter user wrote: “Oh look Bob MacIntyre has just got another birdie ... Too late you've missed it. C’mon Sky I know it hurts you that he is the highest place ‘Brit’ but of course he's Scottish.”

Live coverage of The Open is produced by The R&A World Feed and broadcast on SkySports channels.

Having secured a top 10 finish, MacIntyre celebrated in his now customary fashion, with a rendition of Yes Sir, I Can Boogie.

The Scot also set his sights on securing his PGA Tour card in America. The qualifying points he earned mean it is a trip back Stateside to play the 3M Open in Minnesota rather than Cazoo Open supported by Gareth Bale at Celtic Manor in Wales.

"It's been a good week. Obviously disappointed at the way I finished," he said. "I want to win one of these, I don't turn up to not compete, we're all trying to win.

"I feel I've got the game to win an Open, I'm yet to show it, but I'm young and I've got plenty time. There's a lot I can learn.

"My face doesn't show it yet, but once this week's over I'll be absolutely delighted with the result.

"[A top 10] in the States to try and chase down a PGA Tour card and then I don't know what I do, whether I come home and go back out to Memphis [for the final World Golf Championship event of the year] or just stay out there.

"I've not got playing rights in the US yet so my base is Oban, it always will be. When the time's right I'll get a place out there, I'm not in a rush."
