Tommy Duncan won the first class section of the May medal at Rothesay Golf Club on Saturday by the narrowest of margins.

Both Tommy and his nearest challenger Michael Murty returned net scores of 66 - Tommy shooting 73-7 and Michael 71-5 - but it was Tommy who took the honours after a countback.

The division two medal was also won with a net 66 - Jimmy Ewing’s score of 75-9 gave him a three-shot margin of victory over Hughie Charker and Ryan McKirdy, and earned him a one-shot handicap cut and a return to the division one category for the next medal.

Division three, like division one, was won on a countback, with Jim McClean edging out Colin Spear after both players scored net 67s.
