Thirty-five golfers braved the heavy rain to compete for the Jimmy Whitelaw Cup at Port Bannatyne Golf Club on Sunday.

The tournament, played over two rounds of 12 holes, is one of the biggest on the Port’s fixture list, but fears that the horrendous weather might put a severe dent in the entry list happily proved unfounded.

Not for the first time the trophy stayed in the family, with son-in-law Graham Dunn taking the prize by virtue of the better second round score after both he and Tommy Wilkinson scored 85.

Graham carded a 44 and a 41, while Tommy scored a 39 in the first round but could only manage a 46 in the afternoon.

Third place went to Robert Jardine with his 24-hole total of 87 comprising rounds of 42 and 45.
