A level-par performance over the first nine holes set up Richie More for a winning total of 41 points in the latest round of Bute Golf Club’s Winter League at Kingarth.

Birdies at the fifth and ninth holes were the highlights of an outward score of 34 for 23 stableford points as the 10-handicapper produced his best return of the tournament so far.

Scoring became more difficult on the back nine as the westerly winds - which gusted up to 30mph - took their toll, but More still managed to amass 18 points, boosted by a further birdie at the 14th, to finish one point clear of runner-up Graeme Connor.
