The event, which was played over two rounds was a close affair and at the half way point there were four players tied for the lead on 70 (-1) with a further six players within three shots.

The winner, Gordon Dunlop, shot a superb second round of 69 (-2) to edge out Greg Cathie on the better second round score to win the trophy for the first time with a total of 142.
