He also worked as an agronomist for Nicklaus Design, traveling the world as a consultant. One of his favorite projects was The King and The Bear in St. Augustine, Fla., where he worked with Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. Later, Mr. McIntosh formed his own company, Turfgrass Consulting Inc. He worked for many well-known golfers, including Ernie Els. He is survived by his wife, Wanda McIntosh; daughter, Tracey (Leonard) Wilcox; son, David (Stacy) Mc- Intosh and their children, Sophie, Landyn, George, and Chandler; daughter, Nicole McIntosh and Craig Saccavino and their children, Paul, David and Griffin; daughter Amy Moore and her children, Mac and Liam; brother, Bill (Diane) McIntosh and their children Kirstie and Bill Jr. Rodolfo Ruiz , 76, died July 9, 2018.
