Rothesay Motor Services Final by Webmaster @ 23:38 GMT
Robert Jardine and Mark Crichton were runners up in the Rothesay Motor Services Winter league for 2012 - 13 but they went one better in 2013 - 14 when they took the title by defeating John Black and Bobby Pedder in Sunday's final by the narrow margin of 2&1. Despite being the middle of April it was certainly wintry conditions with the cold wind and the occasional shower to let all players know that they were playing in the Rothesay Motor Services Winter League Finals Day. Third place went to the father and son pairing of the Greers who defeated Graham Fisher and Ian McFarlane by 3&2 although this reporter strongly suspects a bigger defeat since this foursome was off the course very early! At the other end of the spectrum, Jim Thom and Gordy McIntyre were defeated 6&5 by Ian Shaw and Frankie Lintermans thereby sealing their fate to the dreaded wooden spoon.
Other results were: Hector Whitelaw & Stephen Renfrew, subbing for Donald Standaloft who had ventured to the Cup semi final to support his beloved Aberdeen - bet he wishes he had stayed and played on Finals day - defeated Colin Renfrew & Gordon Peacock by 2&1. Arran and mathew Dunn were soundly beaten by David Reid & David driver by 6&4. Roddie Shaw & Sam jamieson defeated Jim Bicker & john Marshall 4&3. Calum MacPhail and Pete Barnett had a very sociable and friendly halved match with David Bodys & Hunter Martin.
In the Junior competition Alistair Shaw had a comfortable win over Scott McAlister in the final while Connor McLymont took third place.
So, after what has been a very frustrating winter season for all, The Rothesay Motor Services Winter League has finally been completed. Thanks go to all players, Janey Jardine for her catering throughout, John Marshall for his hard work and especially to David Reid and family of Rothesay Motor Services for the generous and continued support of this very popular competition.
Port Bannatyne Junior sections April medal has been rescheduled to Saturday 19th April. Please remember to add your name to the entry sheet and please return all cards even NR's.

Semi's decided by Webmaster @ 23:17 GMT
The semi finalists for the Rothesay Motor Services Winter League were decided on Sunday and these games will be played on April 6th. Graham Fisher and Iain McFarlane had the biggest margin of win in the four quarter final games with their 5&4 defeat of David Reid and David Driver. Last year's finalists Robert Jardine and Mark Crichton had a comfortable 3&2 win over Colin Renfrew and Gordon Peacock. The other two games were a lot closer. The father and son Greers were actually dormie two down to the cousin partnership of Matthew and Arran Dunn but fought back to be all square after 18 and walked off the 19th green as winners. The final game between Hector Whitelaw and Donald Standaloft against Bobby Pedder and John Black was all square on the 18th tee but a perfect chip shot from above the green by Bobby Pedder gave his pairing a two which neither Donald or Hector could match and therefore took Bobby and John into the semi finals.
The draw for the semis is as follows:-
9.30 - Pedder & Black v Fisher & McFarlane: 9.37 - Greer & Greer v Jardine & Crichton.
For 5th to 8th places the draw is:
8.37 - Renfrew & Peacock v Whitelaw & Standaloft: 8.44 - Dunn & Dunn v Reid & Driver.
In the Non Champions League it was disappointing to see that two pairs had walk overs. Ian Shaw and Frankie Lintermans had one against Jack Paterson and Jamie Jardine while David Bodys and Hunter Martin had theirs against John Wilson and Steve Robson. In the other games Roddie Shaw and Sam Jamieson defeated Jim Thom and Gordy McIntyre by 2&1 while Calum MacPhail and Pete Barnett beat John Marshall, playing on his own due to Jim Bicker's peg leg, to the tune of 5&4.
Games in the Non Champions League for the 6th of April are:-
8.51 - Shaw & Jamieson v Shaw & Jamieson: 8.58 - Marshall & Bicker v Robson & Wilson: 9.05 - Bodys & Martin v Jardine & Paterson: 9.12 - MacPhail & Barnett v Thom & McIntyre.

Winter golf At last by Webmaster @ 22:47 GMT
At last! The weather took a turn for the better to allow qualifying games of round 3 of The Rothesay Motor Services Winter League to take place, although, it has to be said, going by the nature of some of the defeats, a few pairings will be wishing that the weather had stayed the same!
With only one more qualifying round to go, which will be this Sunday in conjunction with the Club Day, it is still tight for places in that vital top 8.
In League A, providing two players are on the tee and on time, David Reid & David Driver have qualified. On 11 points already and with a certain 1 point to come in their last game this will give them a finishing total of 12 no matter the result. Their 6&5 win over Calum MacPhail and Pete Barnett securing their place in the last 8. They can cement that place on Sunday with a win over bottom of the table John Wilson and Steve Robson who were beaten 7&6 in their game by Jamie Jardine & Jack Paterson. That match tee off time is 9.21. Lying second in League A are Colin Renfrew and Gordon Peacock who defeated Roddie Shaw & Sam Jamieson with a score of 3&2. They have 9 points but play Jardine & Paterson on Sunday who lie in 3rd place on 8 points at 9.28 so it looks like the other qualifier in this League coming from the winner of this game although a halved match would maybe enough for Renfrew & Peacock. However, MacPhail & Barnett also have 8 points but a poorer game difference and they face Shaw & Jamieson with a 9.35 tee time. Should they win their match and the previous match is a half then they will leapfrog both pairs to take the qualifying spot.
D. Reid & D. Driver 11 +6
G. Peacock & C. Renfrew 9 +6
J. Jardine & J. Paterson 8 +3
P. Barnett & C. MacPhail 8 +1
R. Shaw & S. Jamieson 7 -4
J. Wilson & S. Robson 3 -26
League B Points Game Difference
R. Pedder & J. Black 11 +12
R. Jardine & M. Crichton 10 +7
A. Greer & A. Greer (J) 9 +3
I. Shaw & F. Lintermans 7 +1
As with A, League C is a tight affair. Graham Fisher & Ian McFarlane secured top spot with a 3&2 win over Jim Bicker & John Marshall. Fisher & McFarlane now have 11 points but play second placed Arran Dunn & Matthew Dunn on Sunday at 9.42. Arran & Matthew took second place by virtue of their 1 up win against David Bodys & Hunter Martin and they have 9 points. A defeat for either pairing could see their hopes of making the top 8 dented. Hanging to both pairs, and also on 9 points, are Hector Whitelaw & Donald Standaloft. Their 6&4 win over Jim Thom & Iain Macleod, subbing for Gordy McIntyre, (get well soon Gordy), making sure their challenge is kept alive. Standaloft and Whitelaw play Bicker & Marshall at 9.15. The other game in this League is the bottom of the table clash between Bodys & Martin against Thom & McIntyre at 9.08.
League C Points Game Difference
G. Fisher & I. McFarlane 11 +9
A. Dunn & M. Dunn 9 +5
H. Whitelaw & D. Standaloft 9 +5
J. Bicker & J. Marshall 7 -5
D. Bodys & H. Martin 6 -3
G. McIntyre & J. Thom 5 -12
