Andy Docherty played his way into Bute Golf Club’s medal finals with an excellent three-over-par score of 71 on Saturday at Kingarth.

The 10-handicapper’s net 61 gave him victory in an extra medal as he grabbed a last chance to qualify for inclusion in the prestigious Robertson Medal event next month.

A two at the third, followed by further birdies at the ninth and 16th, paved the way to success for Docherty as he edged out David Bryden (10) who was runner-up with net 62.

Richie More (9) was third on 63 with Robert McKirdy (5), and Graham McArthur (6), sharing fourth spot with scores of 64.
