Glen Trevor (Thornton) gave him a run for his money and shot 67-70 finishing one stroke behind Chapman at a 137 2-day total. The other former Champion who was in the hunt, Adam Neville (Denver), shot a 68 the second day and came in 4 th .

Ethan Fine came in third with a two- round total of 139.

In the Senior Men’s Championship, after firing a 68 in the first round, Brian Woody (Castle Pines) held on to his lead and shot 71, winning by two strokes and defending his Senior Amateur Championship title. Bob Schuler out of Albuquerque followed Woody by 2 shots with a two-round total of 141.
