RETIRED butcher Richard McIntyre sliced his way through the rest of the field to secure victory in Rothesay Golf Club’s senior open tournament.

A scratch score of 80, less his handicap of 16, gave Richard a one-shot margin of victory in the annual competition, sponsored by local firm George Hanson (Building Contractors) Ltd.

The age group prizes were won by H. Crooks (50-57), David Coll (58-64) and John Simpson (65-plus), while overall runner-up John Duncan took the scratch prize with a round of 72.
