David MacCuish won the Glencruitten Golf Club Championship for the 19th time last weekend.

The Oban man has taken the title 11 times in the last 12 years after taking a break last year.

Before that he won the tournament 10 times on the trot. This year, he pipped Philip Murphy.

The championship is played over four rounds, with David scoring a total of 252, with rounds of 63, 63, 62, 64.

Philip’s second place effort saw him score a total of 268, with rounds of 67, 66, 66, 69.

Speaking about his triumph, David said: ‘It meant as much winning that as the first time because I had that year off and the older you get, you appreciate it more.

‘Obviously the likes of Robert [MacIntyre] and that have taking it to another level. But you can only beat what is in front of you. You have to try your best.’

The week before the handicap championships took place at Glencruitten, and that was won by Dale Robertson with a score of 191 over three rounds of 66, 59, 66.

Runner up was James Muir with 196 with 66, 63, 70.
