In the second flight, Jeff Probst had the low gross with an 87, followed by Curt Massey with a 91. The low net title went to Gary Pangburn with a 73, followed by Carl Olson with a 74.

In the third flight, Todd Werbelow had the low gross with a 69, followed by Walter Mayland and Ross Henderson, who tied with a 95. Chuck Williamson and Al Madden tied for low net honors, each posting a 72.
