The second round of Thurso Golf Club's A&A Mackay sponsored summer league took place in glorious weather on Saturday. Sandy Cumming (handicap 32) amassed a massive 44 points to be the clear winner.

Mick Ross (17), who is hitting the ball a long way, reached the turn in three over par after a birdie at the eighth. Two no-scores on the back nine still saw him post 40 points.

Willie Lipka (19) played some solid golf as he returned 38 points alongside Scott Mackay (14), who birdied the fifth and sixth. Stuart Bell (21) had a welcome return to form with 37 points, with Jordan Bain (18) a point behind on 36.

Scoring was again low on Sunday as Callum Mauchlen (19) won the Bert Loomes memorial with a net 63. David Dunbar (3) birdied the first, fourth, eighth, ninth, 11th and 13th and returned the lowest gross with a fine 68 to finish in second place.

Tyler Gordon (14) was third with a net 65, one ahead of Ronnie Gray (13). Jordan Youngson (9) was next best with a net 69.
