FORMER champion Donald Standaloft and Arthur Hunter lead the way after the first qualifying round of Bute Golf Club’s title tournament at the weekend.
Both players returned gross scores of 73 to head the leaderboard – one shot clear of Robert McKirdy and Richie More on 74. Defending champion Jim McKirdy, who was nursing a hand injury, did well to finish among the leaders on 76, while Andy Docherty is also in contention with 78.
Thirteeen-handicapper Robert McBride recorded the only two of round — at the 12th hole — on a day of high scoring when the competition scratch score rose by two shots to 66.
The eight players with the best 36-hole aggregate scores after the second qualifying round tomorrow (Saturday) will go forward to the match-play stages while those remaining competitors with leading net scores will compete for the Cuthbertson Cup in the “Wee Championship”.
