Golf: Only one unbeaten pair left in Port league battle

Sam Jamieson and Roddie Shaw are the only remaining undefeated pair in the Rothesay Motor Services Winter League at Port Bannatyne - even though Roddie has been present for only one of their three games!

With Robert Turnbull as his partner for the week 4 qualifying games on Sunday, Sam defeated the previously unbeaten pair of Jim Bicker and John Marshall by 2 and 1 in a tightly-fought match to go top of League C on game difference.

The other unbeaten League C pair going into Sunday’s matches was Robert Cassidy and Jim McKirdy, but their record bit the dust after they lost to John Black and Bobby Pedder.

In League A Graham Fisher and Ian McFarlane put Robert Jardine and Mark Crichton’s undefeated run to rest with a win of 4 and 3; the other undefeated record to fall on Sunday was that of Ian Shaw and Francois Lintermans, who lost 4 and 2 to Harry Slaven and Ted McDonald.
