Golf: Islanders prevail in ‘battle of the Ports’

Port Bannatyne progressed into the third round draw for the Mail on Sunday 5 Man Team Classic event with a decisive win over Port Glasgow Golf Club on Sunday.

Despite all of the Port’s five team members giving shots to their opponents - in two cases by six shots - victory by four-and-a-half points to a half saw the islanders safely into the next round.

Graham Dunn won his game 4 and 3, Jamie Jardine triumphed 6 and 5, Robert Jardine eased through 3 and 2 and John Black won 5 and 4, while Ian Shaw halved his match to complete a successful day.
