Leighton Thomas is the new pace-setter in Bute Golf Club’s Winter League stableford tournament after a 36-point haul in the latest round of the competition.

The 11-handicapper now leads defending champion Robert McKirdy by one point in the battle for the McArthur Cup, while Jim Thom closed to within five points of the lead in Saturday’s round at Kingarth.

But all the main challengers at the top of the overall standings were eclipsed on Saturday by David Coll, who produced his best performance of the campaign in the form of a gross 75 which earned him a total of 41 points.
