Calm weather conditions earlier in the day contributed to a wave of low scoring in the latest round of Bute Golf Club’s Winter League stableford competition sponsored by Optimize Financial Solutions, Ltd.

John McBride led the way with a tally of 43 points which included the only two of the day – at the sixth hole – and further birdies at the 14th and 18th.

The 14-handicapper was one point ahead of Stuart Wilson (15) with 42 points in just his second outing in the tournament. Others who finished among the leaders were Andy Docherty (9) and David Bryden (10), both on 41 points, and Graham McArthur (6) and Richie Smith (19) who shared fifth place on 40 points apiece.

The tournament continues on Saturday, November 30, with the usual 8.30am ballot at the clubhouse.
