The day, which started on a rainy note, saw conditions improve as the day went on, with the participants playing with the format of a better-ball Stableford off the yellow tees on the International Course.

In third place was Ian Ream and Nigel Watmough of Buckingham GC, who also finished with 44 points.

Nearest proximity to the pin on the fifth hole was Martin Keogh (Handsworth GC), while Mark Triggs (The South Staffordshire GC) was closest on the 14th.
