RYAN McTAGGART returned an excellent net 63 to win the Robert McAlister Memorial Trophy in Port Bannatyne’s junior open on Sunday.

McTaggart’s net score, off a gross 91, saw him win the title by a single shot from Lachlan Reynolds and Arran Downie on a day when the rain which fell on Rothesay stayed away from the Port, making it a very enjoyable day for the 37 juniors who took part.

The scratch prize was won by Andrew Black with a round of 76.
