In the ladies’ championship, 16-year-old Lauren Needham maintained her first-day four- stroke lead over Emily Ribbins after they each shot 78 in the final round, while Ashley MacDonald took third at two strokes back.

Scott Kapuscinski took home the senior’s prize finishing ahead of Robert Woods and Paul Wammer to win his fourth straight championship. Paul Woodhouse won the super senior championship, defeating Mick Whitworth by one shot after a back-and-forth battle on the final day.
