Robert McKirdy and Leighton Thomas are level at the top of the overall standings of Bute Golf Club’s Winter League after the latest round of the stableford competition at the club’s Kingarth course.

McKirdy’s tally of 36 points on Saturday was only good enough for fourth place on the day, but it took him on to a best-eight-scores total of 302 points and a share of the overall lead.

Winner on the day was John McBride (12) with 39 points from a round which included a level-par last six holes and a birdie at the 17th; the in-form David Coll (12) took a share of second place with Pat McDonald (20), both players scoring 37 points.
