Colbert and Thorpe shot two under par for their first round on the Par 3, then fired a four under par in the final round to beat Bruce Fleisher and Larry Nelson by three strokes.

The duo birdie the 2nd Hole but gave it back at the 4th with a bogey, but then finished strong birding four of the final five holes including Colbert knocking in a 40 footer to seal the win with an 11 under par score.

The team of Fleisher and Nelson birdied only the eighth hole on their final round to finish second at eight under par. John Bland and Graham Marsh along with the team of Butch Baird and Al Geiberger finished at six under par while Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player finished at five under par.

The shot of the day was by Dale Douglass, who knocked in a Hole in One on the 2nd Hole.
