Scott McAlister won his third Rothesay Golf Club junior championship title in a row on Saturday.

Scott’s 3 and 2 win was his second junior final victory against Lewis Poole in three years - sandwiched either side of victory over Alistair Shaw in 2014 - and comes hard on the heels of his first call-up to the Argyll and Bute area team for the recent SGU area boys’ championship event at Tulliallan.

The weekend’s other winners at Rothesay included jovial clubmaster Jimmy Crawford, who won the weekly Friday medal with a fine net 64 (73-9); Bob McKechnie, who returned the lowest net score in the June medal on Saturday in the form of a net 63 (81-18); and Andy Docherty, who won Sunday’s Jubilee Cup competition with a net 65 (73-8).
