Ryan McKirdy enjoyed not one but two medal wins at Rothesay Golf Club at the weekend.

His net 66 (75-9) beat Douglas Torrance to top spot in the weekly Friday evening medal - but that was just an appetiser for Saturday, when his superb net 59 (67-8) earned him a four-shot margin of victory ahead of Shaun Kernaghan.

This week’s action features one of the highlights of the club’s year in the form of the annual visit by the Ecclefechan Fusiliers golfing society, reaching a climax with the playing of the Robin Strong Trophy on the evening of Friday, June 5.
