Ian and Simon's score of 47 points included a superb outward 9 of 26 points, a double bogey on 11 and a bogey on 12 partially slowed their progress, however the pair played the remaining 6 holes in one under par gross to seal the victory. Runners-up were Steve Cocca & Kevin Jones, Steve got off to the perfect start after holing his second shot to the par 4 1st, two more birdies followed for Steve on the 7th and 9th as they also reached the turn in 26 points. A score of 50 points was on the cards until bogies at the 17th and 18th handed the victory to Ian & Simon. Third place went to Nigel Wigg & Trevor Gooch, they edged Kevin Fitzgerald & Gary Clow, and Rob Dawson & Adrian Wicks on a count back, after all three pairs scored 45 points.
