At even par ending up with a 144 for the tournament was Luke Ainsworth recording a 73 and a 71 respectively for his two rounds.
Dr. Ainsworth commented on his nephew after the tournament, "It was a comfort to have Luke playing alongside me today. I played well all day and Luke's presence calmed me down to execute good shots."

In the ladies division, Brenda Shifferly won her 17th women's City of Decatur event shooting a 78/80 two-round score of 158 to seal the title.
