When the tournament ended in inclement weather, Hackett scores read Net 33 and Gross 42.
Watkins, with a handicap of two, recorded Net 34 and Gross 36 to take second spot, while Prashad, playing off a handicap of five, scored Net 34 and Gross 39.
William Walker (handicap five) took fourth with Net 35 and Gross 40.
Paton George was the Closest-to-the-Pin winner, while Rakesh Harry copped the award for the Longest Drive.
