Bute Golf Club's Winter League stableford competition takes place at the club's Kingarth course every Saturday.

The deadlock at the top of Bute Golf Club’s Winter League was broken by Robert McKirdy last Saturday as he recaptured the initiative in his defence of the McArthur Cup.

A one-over-par score of 69 edged last season’s winner ahead of Leighton Thomas after the two players had shared top spot for the past three weeks.

McKirdy, who had set the pace in the early stages of the stableford tournament, made the most of the favourable weekend weather to post his winning tally of 41 points, while Thomas was joint third with David Bryden on 38; Pat McDonald continued his good run of form to finish in second place on 39.
