The weather continued to play havoc with Bute Golf Club’s Winter League tournament on Saturday when just four players braved the wind and rain which swept the Kingarth course throughout most of the day.

Only Robert McKirdy and Jim Thom completed the course and, as a result, splashed their way to the top of the leader board.

McKirdy (5) produced the remarkable tally of 35 stableford points from a gross score of 74 which included 11 pars, while Thom (11) also played on to the bitter end to score 29 points.

After the completion of seven rounds McKirdy, who won the tournament last year, leads with a total of 263 points, while Thom is in second place on 251.
