Brothers Craig and Hughie Charker topped the standings in the ninth week of the Three in One Winter League singles competition at Rothesay Golf Club on Saturday.

Craig held a one-point lead over his brother after the front nine, but Hughie turned it round on the inward half and scored three points to his brother’s two at the 18th hole to finish one ahead with a total of 39 points.

Only two pairs were brave enough - or daft enough - to play in the Winter League pairs in pouring rain on Sunday, with Gary Steele and Billy McFarlane’s 35 points placing them one ahead of Allan Laughlan and Stuart Strathie.
