In the Open, a final-round win by Miles Edwards-Wright of Sheffield over higher-graded Hull-born Richard Britton (long resident “down south”) reversed what might have been expected to be their fortunes, making Miles 2nd-3rd=.

 

The only 100% score was achieved by Richard Atkinson of Hull with 5 out of 5 in the Minor.
