Andy Docherty and Jason McKay will win their first Winter League title at Rothesay Golf Club this Sunday - unless the reigning champions can pull off a minor miracle in pursuit of the crown.

Four wins in the last five weeks for Docherty and McKay means that holders Jimmy Crawford and Gary Steele will have to score 50 points in this Sunday’s final round to have a chance of retaining the prize.

This year’s leaders and last year’s winners were two of the three pairs who shared top spot in last Sunday’s penultimate round, with Darren Leonard and Graham Shaw completing the triumivate after all three pairs returned scores of 44 points.
