Mills took a commanding three shot lead with four holes to play when Burrow fought back with a magnificent eagle two on the 15th hole closing the gap to one shot. The pivotal moment in the match came on the penultimate hole where Burrow scored a triple bogey to give Mills a comfortable four shot lead going to the last hole. Mills sealed the victory with two steady rounds of 73+73 for a total of 146 to win the Championship for the fourth consecutive year.

In the Ladies Division, Adrienne Fullerton managed to just pip defending Champion Adele McKelvey for the title, the latter had a five shot lead going to the 35th hole where she scored a quadruple bogey 7 shrinking her lead to 1 shot going down the last hole. Fullerton was able to close out her first Championship with both players taking a 5 on the last hole.
