Allan Crooks splashed his way to victory in the Weldsave Kingarth Open at a rain-lashed Bute Golf Club on Sunday.
The visitor, from Eastwood Golf Club on the outskirts of Glasgow, won the Middleton Cup by edging Rothesay’s Iain Simpson into second place on a better inward half after both players returned scores of net 65.
A back-nine of 35 secured victory for the eight-handicapper as Simpson, also playing off eight, scored 37.
Rothesay’s Jim McAlister took the scratch award with a score of 73 in conditions made difficult by continuous rain throughout the day.
