Scotland Golf Club News 4th Nov, 2019 by ukclubgolfer.co.uk
After his incredible performance in his debut Open, finishing T6 and qualifying for Royal St George’s next year, the Scotsman decided to help raise money for a cause that is close to his heart by selling his limited edition TaylorMade tour bag from the 2019 Open.
MacIntyre was raising money to help fellow Fort William Shinty Club member James Tangney on his road to recovery after suffering a horrific illness.
After 20 bids, the golf bag went for an incredible £1,050 to the highest bidder, which was David Cooper.
Shinty is a sport that is close to the left-handers heart, as his dad used to play for Fort William, and to help Tangey is something that he was incredibly keen to do.
MacIntyre’s efforts are aimed to help Tangey’s recovery and rehabilitation after suffering an accident in India that initially left him paralysed from the neck down.
After surgery in India he was flown to the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Glasgow where he is recovering through intense physio.
Tangey has captained and been player of the year a number of times for Fort William Shinty Club, and the money raised will go a long way to help in his recovery.
