Dan McIntosh hoping for success in long-drive world
Dan ‘Smackintosh’ McIntosh, Candidate For Membership at River’s Edge GC, will often set up at corporate tournaments or other on-course shindigs, where the local long-drive competitor charges about five bucks per player to crush a golf ball on your behalf. “It’s a way for me to get a paid practice,” said McIntosh, who was raised in High River and just made the move to the Calgary suburbs. “And there’s pressure, too, because somebody has paid me to hit a good drive for them. So I have to hit a good drive”. Click here to read the full article from the Calgary Sun.
