However, a swift change in weather ushered in brisk winds and rolling clouds, presenting a formidable challenge. Adding to the complexity were the ever-changing greens, further testing the skills of the competitors.

However, Larry Barber emerged as a formidable force, showcasing his mastery with an impressive string of eight pars and one bogey, clinching the best back nine performance in the division and securing a final score of 85. Yet, the battle was far from over as Jeff Grubb and Steve Winnick refused to relent, applying relentless pressure on Rick. A stumble by Rick with a double bogey on the 11th momentarily opened the door for his challengers. Unfortunately for Jeff, a series of bogeys and a double bogey dashed his hopes of contention. Meanwhile, Steve Winnick’s stellar performance on the back nine, highlighted by five pars and a 38, brought him tantalizingly close to the top spot with a final score of 83.

Initially, Gregg seemed to have a comfortable lead, boasting a six-stroke advantage with a solid 43 compared to Andrew’s 49 and Robert’s 47. However, it was the back nine where the plot thickened and the drama intensified. As Gregg encountered challenges, struggling to find his rhythm with just one par and three double bogeys, the door swung wide open for Andrew and Robert to mount a comeback. Andrew unleashed a relentless charge, determined to overtake Gregg, but despite his valiant effort, time ran out, and his final score of 90 fell short of Gregg’s 88.
