Jimmy Ewing won the Cowal Building and Plumbing Supplies Senior Open at Port Bannatyne Golf Club on Sunday with a net score of 64.

On a day when the course had its teeth out, making pars, let alone birdies, hard to come by, Jimmy managed to stay out of the rough to secure the prize by a single shot from the Port’s greenkeeper John Marshall, though John did at least have the consolation of securing the 50-60 age group title.

The scratch winner was Rothesay’s Iain White with a round of 74; the prizes were presented by Ronnie Hair from CBPS.
