With excellent climate situations, there had been some brilliant scores recorded in each the gross and the nett divisions. Tenzin Tsarong, the current National Champion, won the greatest gross with a commendable 76, but because he is as well young to be a senior, Puli Sharma from Muscat Hills won the cup with an impressive score of 78 gross. Runner-up gross was Osman Yousuf with an 82 gross. The nett division was won by Srenivas Hebbar with an amazing 68 nett and runner-up was Sumant Sunder with 71 nett.
