Full results are not available and only three scores are known in this event. [Hermann Glass] won the event. He had injured his hand severely in 1903 causing him to concentrate on the rings as his specialist event, but this was his only major title. Runner-up [William Merz] and third-placed [Emil Voigt] both represented the Concordia Turnverein in St. Louis.
