Only three players braved atrocious weather conditions to take part in the latest round of Bute Golf Club’s Winter League at Kingarth on Saturday.

Robert McKirdy scored 42 stableford points to take first place, followed by David Coll with 39 and Graham McArthur with 34.

All three have now competed in all four weeks of the competition so far, putting them halfway towards the eight counting scores needed to qualify for the prizes at the end of the season.
