Dan "Smackintosh" took a long drive champion Tim Burke to task last night in Mesquite Nevada.
The son of Ron and Ann McIntosh of High River is a former Junior B Flyer and quite the golfer as well.
Both golfers were tied with shots of 428 yards after their first eight shots, on a very windy grid
.The man known as "Smackintosh" around these parts, knocked one 421, in the bonus round,
where each golfer gets four extra shots, but Burke topped him with adrive of 424 to eliminate
McIntosh, who was making his first TV appearance.
I texted Dan and said he made us proud in High River and he replied, "thanks Charlie".
That is a typical humble response from a great young man whose parents, relatives and
friends are pretty proud of today.
