Golf: Pack closes in on Kingarth league leader

The chasing pack is catching up fast on Bute Golf Club’s Winter League leader Andy Docherty - with at least four other contenders still vying for the crown.

Docherty, who failed to improve on his points total of 325, is still favourite to lift the trophy - but Richie More, Robert McKirdy and Graham McArthur all made significant advances on Saturday.

McKirdy was one of three players who finished joint top after the latest round of the competition with 42 points apiece - the others were Stevie Neilson and David Bryden - while McArthur was next on 41.

More, on 40 points and in second place overall, shared fifth place on the day with Graham Bolton, whose superb 66 was the best gross score.
