The pros received cash and the amateurs gift certficates to the pro shop.

Mark Houser, Cayman Ratliff, Brandon Worley and Todd Foster finished second with a 122 total (64-58), while Braxton Hunter, Jason Cox, Jonathan Cox and Davis Bunn tied Matt Manzaro, Lee Maxwell, Paul Ballard and Barrett Steakley for third at 21-under-par 123.

Bear Trace professional Kelvin Burgin and partners Dale Wheeler, Tracy Graham and Calvin Clark tied for sixth at 19-under-par 125 (64-61), while Golf Capital Learning Center professional Greg Wyatt, Druid Hills assistant pro Adam Forgey and amateurs Tim Richardson and Blake Garrison tied for eighth at 18-under-par 126 ((62-64).

Tansi head professional Matt Phipps and his assistant pro, Cody King, and amateurs Jason Sitton and Mark Hickey tied for 19th at 14-under-par 130 (66-64).

There was individual competition for regular professionals, senior professionals, regular amateurs and senior amateurs, with two of those winners coming from Cumberland County.

Burgin and Audie Johnson of Lebanon Country Club shared the regular pro championship at six-under-par 68 to earn $850 each.

Cody King and Wyatt tied for fourth at two-under-par 142 and received $375 each. Forgey tied for 16th at nine-over-par 153, while Phipps finished 20th at 20-over-par 164.

Lee Maxwell of Cookeville won the regular amateur crown with an eight-under-par 138 to earn a $500 gift certificate to the pro shop. Crossville's Tracy Graham finished ninth at three-over-par 143 to receive a $125 gift certificate.

Other Cumberland County finishers were Dale Wheeler (T-14) at six-over-par 150; Jake Dailey (T-23) at 13-over-par 157; and Jason Sitton (T-28) with a 19-over-par 163.

Crossville's Eddie Wyatt had the low score for the senior amateurs shooting 72-70 for a two-under-par 142, while Randy Helton took home the low score in the senior professional division, firing a 68-67 for a nine-under-par 135.

"We would like to thank each and every player for coming out and participating in this great event. We would also like to send a very special thank you to the city of Crossville for being our title sponsor as well as host professional Matt Phipps and his staff for helping us put on such a great event," added Echols.
