Bailey started the year in great form winning the Leeds Stroke Play Championship at Wakefield in May followed by consistant performances in the YIDU team matches where he secured 21 Order of Merit points then finished the season as the lowest scoring player in the Leeds team at the YIDU Team Championship at Hornsea in September giving him a total of 31 OOM points for the year.

Josh started to secure OOM points playing for the team in the opening YIDU matches then won the coveted Swithenbank Trophy as leading player in the First Division Team Championship at Leeds G C in July. Further OOM points were secured in the remaining matches with a total of 25 points to match Bailey's overall total of 31 points.
