Golf: Iain enjoys double Rothesay trophy win

Iain McMurchie tasted victory twice in five days at Rothesay Golf Club this week after winning both the Seafoods Trophy and the Learmonth Trophy.

McMurchie rose above difficult conditions to win the Seafoods Trophy with 41 stableford points, five clear of his nearest challengers Donnie McDermid and Malcolm Brown, on Wednesday, and followed that up with a fantastic net 59 (69-10) to take the Learmonth Trophy in rather better weather on Saturday.

Brothers Stuart and Robert McKechnie were tied at the top in the weekly Friday evening medal, with Stuart taking first place on a countback after both players returned net scores of 64.
