Jimmy Crawford and Gary Steele tightened their grip on the Bike Shed Winter League pairs competition at Rothesay Golf Club on Sunday.

The overall leaders were one of two pairs to return 43 stableford points on Sunday, with past Winter League champions George Reynolds and Allan Smith having to settle for second place after a countback.

Jimmy came remarkably close to holing his tee shot at the 18th, but then proceeded to miss the simple putt that would have earned an outright win, much to the disbelief of his playing partner!

Meanwhile, Richard McIntyre won the latest Winter League singles round on Saturday with a haul of 37 points.
