Robert McBride achieved a well-earned victory last Saturday in only his fourth appearance of the season in Bute Golf Club’s Winter League tournament.

The 13-handicapper notched the only two of the day – at the sixth hole – on his way to a 39 points’ winning total. Mike Whaley (20) also did well to finish runner-up on a tally of 38 points which was boosted by an excellent three at the ninth.

However Richie More, in third place with 36 points, was the “birdie king” of the day after beating par at the eighth, 10th and 18th in a round which unfortunately was marred by three non-counting holes.
