Nickeas finished at 75-74-71—220 to tie for second with Mack, who wound up at 80-67-73—220.

Six-time SCGA player of the year Randy Haag Orinda was in the chase until the final round, carding a score of 72-69-80—221 to tie for fourth with Craig Steinberg of Agoura Hills, who totaled 75-74-72—221, John Hoffman of San Diego, who shot 74-71-76—221, and John Plotkin of Carlsbad, who finished at 74-72-75—221.

Jeff Burda of La Quinta, the 2011 and 2014 SCGA Senior champion, posted a score of 73-73-76—222 to tie for eighth with Jeff Thomas of Costa Mesa, who wound up at 70-77-75—222, while Greg Cesario of San Marcos shot 77-72-74—233 to tie for 10th with Jim Ream of Cerritos, who came in at 73-75-75—223.
