Golf: Cuthbertson shines in Rothesay medal finals

RON CUTHBERTSON posted the lowest overall net score of the day in Sunday’s medal finals and extra medal at Rothesay, winning his seventh medal of the year in the process.

Ron always looked the favourite to win the division two title, and he finished the season the way he started it, taking the title with a net score of 65.

Stan Gaston took the McNeil Trophy for the overall winner in division one after being one of three tied on net scores of 67, while the division three title went to Mike Spear.

Neither Stan nor Mike won their class on the day - the honours in first and third class went to Jim McAlister and Drew Pearson respectively, though neither Jim nor Drew had qualified for the medal finals.
