Golf: Rothesay pair shrug off wintry conditions

Hughie Charker and Billy McFarlane made light of almost unplayable conditions to score an incredible 46 stableford points in the latest round of the Bike Shed Winter League at Rothesay Golf Club on Sunday.

Charker and McFarlane recorded the highest score of the competition so far in weather which saw all the competitors soaked to the skin.

Top scorers on Saturday in the third round of the Winter League singles were Stuart Strathie and Jim McClean, who both returned scores of 39 points.
