A birdie two at the par-three 12th hole paved the way to victory for Leighton Thomas in the latest round of Bute Golf Club’s Winter League at wind-swept Kingarth last Saturday.

The 11-handicapper scored 37 points to edge Graham McArthur (6) into runner-up spot after he finished one point adrift of the leader. McArthur did have the consolation of achieving the only eagle of the day with a magnificent two at the fifth hole where he fired a three-wood tee shot to within 50 feet of the green and holed the chip.
