At the end of the day’s play, Payten Wight had the best round with 77. His father, Michael Wight, who had the best round two weeks earlier at North Sound Golf Club was one stroke back.

14-year-old Justin Hastings hit a solid 80, followed by fellow teenager Aaron Jarvis with 82. Brian Ross shot 84 to round out the top five on the day. Four golfers were tied with 86.

Two juniors were the only two females on the course. Holly McLean shot 95 and Lauren Needham hit 110.
