This time the two players were to compete in a three round 45-hole contest, beginning at the brand new 9-hole indoor (in a Bar!) Mini Golf course at The Swingers Club at the Plaza Hotel & Casino, followed by a revisit to the 18-hole Pike's Pass Miniature Golf course at the Adventuredome at Circus Circus, and with a final round at The Putt Park Mini-Golf course.
In Round One at The Swingers Club Richard defeated Emily 22-27
In Round Two at Pike's Pass Richard defeated Emily 45-57
In Round Three at The Putt Park Richard defeated Emily 42-53
So Richard became the Irregular Mini Golf Tour's Las Vegas Minigolf Desert Classic Champion for 2011 with a score of 109(+19) to Emily's score of 137(+47).

Despite finishing as the runner-up in the tournament, Emily did receive a unique prize as the Silver Medallist as she received a Bicycle Balloon Hat from The Balloon Guy who was at The Putt Park as part of the two-year anniversary special event at the course.
Richard made it two wins on the day as he also won that afternoon's Putt Park Annual Mini-Golf Tournament
