The Men Super Senior with twelve competitors was led by Bert Tomlinson with a score of seventy-eight.  George Hugh was just one stroke behind on seventy-nine.  Mike Boyd – eighty was third while former JGA president Wayne Chai Chong and Carlyle Hudson were tied for fourth on eighty-two.  Current JGA president Peter Chin was in eleventh place after scoring eighty-seven.
