Stuart Wilson celebrated New Year with an emphatic victory in the latest round of Bute Golf Club’s Winter League on Saturday.

The 14-handicapper enjoyed his best performance so far in this season’s stableford tournament with a score of 44 points - a total boosted by birdies at the 13th, 14th and 18th holes - and finished four points clear of nearest challenger John McBride (11).

Graham Bolton returned the top scratch score of the day in the form of a one-over-par 69, while former club champion Robert McKirdy continues to lead the league’s overall standings with a best-eight-rounds tally of 323 points, ten ahead of McBride.
