The in-form Matthew Baylis Womack won the event for the second time with his score of 76-12-64 having won it for the first time in 2004.

His resultant handicap cut came at a bad time with the Tolly competition imminent. David Wells (78-12-66) was the runner-up despite suffering from a bad back (beware the injured golfer) with Willie White third on 88-20-68.
