Jim McClean posted a fine net score of 66 to secure victory in the Esso Tiger Trophy competition, sponsored by Bute Motor Company, at Rothesay Golf Club on Saturday.

Jim’s gross score of 90, less his handicap of 24, gave him a two-shot margin of victory over Ryan McKirdy and Tommy Duncan senior, with Ryan taking second place overall - though Tommy did at least have the consolation of returning the day’s best scratch score in the form of a round of 75.

Only two players scored a two during Saturday’s competition, and it was a family affair for the pair in question, with both Tommy and John Duncan managing the feat at the 11th hole.
