The winner was Tommy Gulin from Espoo Ringside Golf who had a pretty exciting round of level par 71 which featured 4 birdies and an eagle offset by four bogeys and a double. He won by a comfortable three shot margin from Petri Lehto (Helsingin Golfklubi) with Kytäjä players Henri Lahdenperä and Andy Fowlie one shot further back.
The challenging conditions meant that only nine players were able to break 80 and also resulted in the CBA being -3.

Well, 3rd is a decent result... but I was very disappointed to finish my round in the way I did. I made a total mess of a routine 8 iron approach from the fairway on the 14th, dumping it in the hazard on the right in a terrible lie... and a few minutes later I was missing a double bogey putt and holing out for a triple bogey 8. Bogeys followed on 15 and 16. There was really no need for that... but I guess I just lost my concentration for some reason. I feel like I threw away the tournament, having been one under up to that point and playing pretty comfortable golf, with the good birdie chances on 14, 17 and 18 I would have been disappointed not to at least shoot level and get into a playoff.
My golf has been pretty good for most of the year but I have not managed a win. My handicap came down by a couple of points to +0,5 (thanks to the CBA) so that is some consolation.
