Lachlan Reynolds (16) wins Argyll and Bute stroke-play after four-hole play-off
A moderate breeze and drizzle greeted players  at the Argyll and Bute area stroke-play championship at Rothesay Golf  Club.  Despite the weather it was 16 year old Lachlan Reynolds who was last man standing as he won a remarkable four  area titles  by virtue of his  four-hole play-off victory over Graham Bolton. In addition to  the  area championship title he secured victories by winning  the youths, boys and Under-16s crowns as well .
Lachlan's total of 139 ( 72-67), one over par, separated him and Graham by two  shots from the rest of the field. In third place was ex -champion Craig Pirie with Donald Standaloft one shot further back.
In the team trophy Rothesay secured victory by pipping holders Millport by virtue of better third score and will represent Argyll and Bute in the Scottish Club Championship at Kinross in September.
