IAN McFARLANE posted a 24-hole aggregate score of 84 to lift the Jimmy Whitelaw Cup at Port Bannatyne on Sunday.
McFarlane returned a net score of 46 in the first of two 12-hole rounds and followed up with a net 37 in the afternoon to secure the trophy by a comfortable seven-shot margin ahead of runner-up Gordon Whitelaw.
The ever-changeable summer weather did not deplete the large entry for the ever-popular competition, although strong winds and heavy showers did blow some first-round scores sky-high - in fact, many of the first round entrants did not venture back out to complete their second 12 holes.
John Black completed the podium with a score of 92, while Mark Crichton’s 97 was the best scratch score of the day.
* Elaine Thom, Graham Dunn and Jim Bicker won the second mixed Texas scramble of the season, for the Ken Chisholm Memorial Trophy, on Friday night with a score of 38.6.
Anita Rutherford, Ian Shaw and Calum Robertson were second on 39.4 and Glenda Shields, Donald Standaloft and Robert McArthur on 39.9.
