The low round of the day belonged to Ritch Nigh of the Seniors division. Nigh recorded a 71 (+1) on the day, highlighted by three birdies. Nigh claimed the Senior division title by 5 strokes over second place finisher John Samples (76).

In the Open division, Lee York came out on top with a 74 (+4) round at Lawrence CC.

Charles Rinehart finished second only by 1 stroke with a 75 (+5). In a two-way tie for third was Jason Adkins and Gregory Diederich was 76 rounds (+6). The close competition in the Open division is always great to see by the KCGA.
