The flight winners went into a Shootout to determine the overall champion. The format was Alternate Shot with the Guest teeing off on Hole #1, the Member on Hole #7, the Guest on Hole #8, the Member on Hole #9 and finally the Guest on Hole #18. When they reached the final hole (#18), the teams of Scott Dunbar-Bradley Hunt and Jordan Reece-John Sessions met for the overall championship.  After tying the 18th hole the first time the 2 teams went back and played #18 again this time with the member teeing off. It looked as if the Reece-Sessions team was in control until Dunbar saved his team with a 25 foot putt uphill which hit the back of the cup and bounce up and in for a bogey 5.  Reece-Sessions had a par putt to win the tournament but barely missed. The teams went back to play the 18th hole for a 3rd time with the Guest teeing off first. This time around, Dunbar hit the team’s approach shot into the green and ended up only 4 feet away from the cup. Hunt calmly stroked the 4 foot birdie putt into the cup for the overall championship.
