Rain, sleet and a freezing wind made scoring very difficult in the latest round of the Three in One Winter League pairs competition at Rothesay Golf Club on Sunday.

Stuart Strathie partnered Allan Laughlan to the day’s top score of 42 stableford points, helped in part by an earlier start than the rest of the field which ensured they avoided the very worst of the weather.

Gordon Shaw and Willie Glen beat Ron Cuthbertson and Jim McClean to second spot by virtue of the better inward half after both pairs returned 40-point totals.
