Manori Jayakody of 'Hyundai Motor Company' fame at last struck form to win the Ladies Gross champion with a Gross score of 93 followed by Fran de Mel Gross 98 and Jyoti Haynes Gross 99 making it a closely contested battle for the top three places.

Englishman Ian Tait, a former cheshire Minor County cricketer and ruggerite did well to register a Gross 84 to win the Mens overall Gross title. But hot on his heels were Sirath Kasturiratne Gross 86 and Scott Wanigasekera Gross 85 making it a tough contest between this trio.

Sirath Kasthuriratne a former President of the Sri Lanka Cricket Foundation in England also struck form after quite sometime to finish second runner-up. He was also first winner of the Lectra Golf Championship a few years back.
