On Thursday, July 18, the course setup at Pinehurst was changed so that every hole was played as a par three and every team member played their own ball. The team score was arrived at as the sum of the best three scores on each hole.
Finishing first at 102 was the foursome of Steve Woleben, Marty Gollnitz, Jim Wise and Mel Allen. Second went to Bob Lokietek, Bob Lewis, Ray Lewis and Les Yokom with a 103. Also at 103 but losing on the tie-breaker were Dick Furman, Vinny Paternosh, John Jones and Lou Barresi. All of the above were money winners.
With a score of 105 the crew of Bill Ottaway, Gene Noble and Todd Swanson came in fourth.
At 106 were Jim Quinn, Dave Holser, Bard Schaack and Rick Lawson finishing fifth.
In sixth place with a 106 were Doug Rothwell, Ed Holmes and Dennis Shively.
Coming in seventh at 108 were Butch Joint, Frank Benamati, Bob Rogers and Bill Christ.
The group with the greatest total of 112 was the threesome of Jim Higginbotham, Sam Arcadipane and Bill Cole.
Closest to the pin awards were made to:
Hole No. 2 - Barresi
Hole No. 5 - Cole
Hole No. 7 - Rogers
