So with 82 points, Jack Florance and Connor Ryan were the runner-ups.

Balls: 77 points were rewarded with three balls each, 66 points two balls and 61 points one ball.


Saturday, February 3 double par was played on the old course.

Nearest-the-pins: A-grade winner Will Power also won the sixth and eighth holes, with the eighth being the money hole for the day. Dale Casley took out the 12th and Ray Toy the 17th.
