Winter League new boy, Jamie Campbell, produced a debut performance like no other at Kingarth last Saturday when he introduced himself with a record score of 52 stableford points.

The 28-handicapper raced to the turn in 39 for 27 points and he kept it going over an inward half of 41 for 25 points which included a birdie three at the 14th hole.

Handicap convenor Leighton Thomas was in immediate action to cut his handicap to 22!

Campbell, who joined the club only this season, finished a massive 13 points clear of runner-up Graham McArthur (7) who had the best scratch score of the day with 72 for 39 points. David Bryden (11) was in third place on 38 points. Other leading scorers included Richie Smith (17) and John Kernaghan (15) who both had scores of 33 points.

The competition scratch score was 66.

The tournament, sponsored again this year by Stephen Thomas of Optimize Financial Solutions, continues on Saturday with the usual 8.30am ballot at the clubhouse. Competitors not in the ballot can also take part by making their own playing arrangements later in the day.
