Enjoying each others company, the teams of Sandy McCall and Dave Bozeman and Mike Arnold and Chip Puhl decided to play an extra hole as both teams finished tied at 3-under par forcing a sudden death playoff which lasted one hole as McCall and Bozeman hit tight second shots on the 384 yard par-4 10th hole sealing the victory.
