The top net score in flight 1 of 63 was earned by Steve and Todd Robinson; Gene Whitley and Don Beeson shot 64.

In flight 2, Chuck Krieg and Marv Seelye combined for a gross of 71; Tom Belew and Tom King finished at 75.

Tying for first in flight 2 net were Leo Troha/Vince Hagel and Dave Holmly/Dave Wichers at 61.
