Despite the threat of severe thunderstorms, 16 men turned out at the Pinehurst Golf Club for the regular Thursday morning scramble. Scoring an eagle and four birdies on their way to easily capturing first place was the foursome of Jim Quinn, John Jones, Marty Gollnitz and Ray Lewis at six under par. Two strokes back were Bill Ottaway, Les Yokom, Lou Barresi and Butch Joint to capture second.
Finishing third was the team of Keith Rothwell, Todd Swanson, Dick Furman and Bill Cole shooting two under. Fourth slot went to the crew of Bill Christ, Bob Rogers, Gene Noble and Sam Arcadipane also with a card of two under par.
Individual rewards for better than average shots were given to:
Ottaway - closest to the pin on No. 3 (after the second shot)
Noble - closest to the pin on No. 4
Barresi - closest to the pin on No. 7
