The tournament was contested in good spirit and was once again an awesome test of golf on some super courses. On the first day, 2011 WBC Champion Dave Warwick and partner Pw Jones, who had played many but never contended in the WBC, skipped out to a two-shot lead over 2010 Champion Rob Lugton and partner Chris Stimmel. On the second day the swoopers came with 2010 Champion Matty Thomas and partner Chris Hull posting the best round, but it was not enough to catch the leaders as they grafted out a gutsy round of one over par in tough conditions. When the scorer had set down his abacus, Diesal and Pw were declared the winners by three shots in what was another great tournament. The final placings were:
