Bute Golf Club’s Summer League champion Leighton Thomas received his trophy this week from David Kilpatrick of the tournament’s sponsor, Rothesay cycle shop The Bike Shed.

The prize, Thomas’s sixth of the season, was achieved by a narrow margin after he edged holder John McBride into second place by virtue of a better fourth score, after both players finished on 123 points in the competition, in which the best three scores from six rounds count.

Graham McArthur finished third on 118 points with Robert McBride on 117 and Andy Docherty on 114.
