Former Bute Golf Club champion Robert McKirdy recaptured his title-winning form of last year on Saturday as he cruised to victory in the third round of the club’s Winter League.

The six-handicapper scored 42 points in a round of level-par 68 at Kingarth which included seven threes - four of which were birdies.

He covered the inward-half in one-under-par 33 thanks to a strong finish with back-to-back birdies at the 17th and 18th holes.

McKirdy was three points clear of joint runners-up Graham McArthur (5) and Andy Docherty (10), who both scored 39 points, with Docherty getting the only two of the round at the 15th hole.
