Jim Thom won the latest Salmon Leap competition at Port Bannatyne Golf Club, beating Brian MacKillop to top spot by virtue of the better inward half.

The Salmon Leap was the only competitive golf of the week at the Port, with Sunday’s horrendous weather forecast putting paid to Ian Shaw’s Captain’s Day event.

The Captain’s Day will now be played on Saturday, September 28; the club’s revised fixture list for the rest of this month now features the September medal on September 21, the Greenkeeper’s Quaich and medal finals on September 28 and the club outing to Easter Moffat on September 29.
