At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.

We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a  subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device.  In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.

Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).

Golfing’s elite will gather at Augusta over the next two days to battle it out for the prestigious Green Jacket and Oban’s Robert (Bob) MacIntyre will be right in amongst them.

A tremendous two under par second round yesterday saw the 24-year-old Masters debutant comfortably through to the third round today (5.30pm BST) when he will partner Canadian Mackenzie Hughes around the National course.

Bob was the only one in his group to move on to weekend play, his opening-day 74 combining with yesterday’s 7o leaving him tied 21 at even par for the tournament, only seven shots behind leader Justin Rose.
