John McBride free-wheeled to victory in the Bike Shed Summer League tournament at Bute Golf Club last week as he stayed two points clear of the chasing pack.

Newcomer McBride (15), who is in his first full season at Kingarth, took the title with a tally of 125 stableford points from his best three rounds out of six.

It was a lead that McBride had maintained from the halfway stage, and it proved to be a total unassailable to his three main challengers - Peter Martin (21), Robert McKirdy (5) and last year’s winner Leighton Thomas (10) - who all finished in joint second place on 123 points.
