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

Winter league by Webmaster @ 23:00 GMT
With only two qualifying rounds to go in the Rothesay Motor Services Winter League not one single pair out of the 18 have a full possible nine points out of nine and, in the form of the old cliche, all of the three leagues are wide open. In League A, the undefeated pair of David Driver and David Reid delivered a thumping 7&5 defeat to the much fancied pair, and last year's finalists, Jamie Jardine and Jack Paterson. Sam Jamieson and Roddie Shaw had a walk over against the bottom of the league pairing of John Wilson and Steve Robson who may need to heed the print of The Buteman rather than listening to information out with this publication and the club's website! The other game in this league was a win for Calum MacPhail and Pete Barnett over Gordon Peacock and John Preston who was subbing for Colin Renfrew by the 2 up margin.
In League B Robert Jardine and Mark Crichton were gifted three points by the call off of the Shanks brothers while Captain Ian Shaw and his partner Frankie Lintermans beat Harry Slaven and Ted McDonald by 2&1. The shock defeat of the day came in the form of the 7&5 defeat of the father and son Greer combination by John Black and Bobby Pedder. The shock not in the actual defeat of the previously all conquering pair but in the margin of that defeat.
In League C Jim Bicker and John Marshall were given a walk over by the non appearance of the League leaders Matthew and Aran Dunn who, beginners to the Winter League, probably learned a hard lesson not to be over 10 minutes late for tee off times. With the non appearance of their opponents and the non appearance of Shaw and Jamieson's opponents the four decided to play a bounce game against each other with the latter pair coming out on top by the narrow margin of 1 up. Elsewhere in League C Hector Whitelaw and Donald Standaloft overcame David Body's and Hunter Martin by 3&2 and Graham Fisher and Iain McFarlane beat Gordon McIntyre and Jim Thom by the narrow margin of 2&1.
So, two games to go and, as the League tables below show - it is all to play for!

Winter golf by Webmaster @ 23:16 GMT
The old saying of "Three times is a charm" was certainly not the case with the December Medal which was meant to be played on Sunday. The weather claimed this competition, kindly sponsored by Iain McFarlane, for the third time and it will have to be re-scheduled.
Calum MacPhail won the last Salmon Leap of the year with his score of 23 points.
The annual January 2nd match turned out honours even between the Captain's side and the Match Secretary's side with a halved match. Thanks to all who turned out on the day.
This Sunday is round 4 of the qualifiers for the Rothesay Motor Services Winter League with the following matches and times:-
League A:- 8.30 - R. Shaw & S. Jamieson V J. Wilson & S. Robson: 9.28 - D. Reid & D. Driver V J. Jardine & J. Paterson: 9.35 - P. Barnett & C. MacPhail V G. Peacock & C. Renfrew:
