On a low scoring first day Jonny Foster and Matt Hart posted a six under par better ball score of 64 to take a one shot lead over Mark Blaber and Paul Hendy and Warren and Chris Harmston.
Six teams finished on 66 including Gary Wolstenholme and Steve Davis and Nick Gammon and Phil Rowe. With an individual score of 67 Wolstenholme shared the lead with Chris Harmston in the professional's event, Jon Langmead and Adam Frayne were two strokes back on 69.
The second day Rye Greensomes proved difficult for the first day leaders and they slipped down the leader board. But Joe Yorke and Adam Frayne moved from three strokes back into a one stroke lead after a superb 64 gave them a two day total of 131.
Gammon and Rowe also scored 64 to move into second place on 132, and Andrew Cloke and Neil Raymond secured third place after repeating their first round 67 for a total of 134.
Wolstenholme and Davis held their position on 135 and Trevose professional Gary Lenaghan and Mickey Turner added a 69 to move up the leader board also on 135. In the foursomes on day 3, Yorke and Frayne extended their lead over the field to six strokes with a five under par 67 after completing the first nine holes in 31 strokes, with three birdies and an eagle three.
Lenaghan and Turner moved up to second place with a 69 and a total of 204, while Cloke and Raymond held their position in third place after a 72.5 gave them a total of 206.5.
Among the leading pairs the casualties included Gammon and Rowe who slipped from second place overnight to eighth on 208 after a round of 76. Wolstenholme and Davis also slipped back with a 73 and a total of 208.
There was nowhere to hide on the final day with every stroke counting towards each pair's aggregated score, and of course, the tournament.
Yorke, with a level par 72, (76–4 handicap), and Frayne with a superb 66, (64 2 handicap), withstood the pressure and posted 138 for a total of 336 to hold their position at the top of the leader board.
Lenaghan and Turner also held second place with a 144 for a total of 348 and Wolstenholme and Davis moved back up the leader board to third place on 351 with a day score of 143.
