WALLA WALLA - Gene McIntire of Sunnyside led the Black Rock Creek Golf Course team at last week's senior tour event, staged at the Walla Walla Vets Course.
McIntire carded an 87, besting teammates Del Guthmiller, Dennis Petrea and Akira Nozaka by four strokes. Guthmiller, Petrea and Nozaka each finished with a 91.
One shot back, with a 92, was teammate Art Pittillo.

Together, the two skins were worth $77 to Ward. Also earning skins that day were Black Rock Creek's Larry Kleingartner for his gross 3 on the 13th hole, worth $19; and John Fleming for his net skin on hole No. 6, worth $58.
Black Rock Creek's Rudy Slupsky won the KP contest on No. 6, as well, which earned him a $22 payout.
