Jeff Morgan won the see-sawing final of the major singles against a gallant Wayne Moffatt at the Mullumbimby Bowling Club.

Morgan shot away to an early 10–1 lead after six ends with both players well and truly on their game.

Moffatt then staged a great fightback to snatch a 12–11 lead after 14 ends and continued to find the jack, edging to a 20–12 lead. The high standard of bowls continued with Morgan then staging his own fightback to regain the lead at 23–22.

As the pressure mounted, Morgan held the upper hand and eventually took the title 31–26.
