Kincer Cup Goes to North Team for 2nd Consecutive Year

Kincer Cup golf teams

May 6th marked the Kincer Cup competition hosted by EKU’s Professional Golf Management (PGM) program. The Kincer Cup is named after EKU’s PGM Director, Ms. Kim Kincer.

This one-day event allows 24 of the top point earning students from both the fall and spring semester tour events to battle for bragging rights in a 36-hole, North vs. South team match-up.

The North team was led by faculty member and Captain Ross Lingenfelder, player development coordinator of PGA Golf Management. The rival South team was led by faculty member and Captain Tyler Caviness, program coordinator of PGA golf management.

The winning North team members each received a piece of crystal and bragging rights for the next year as a prize for their triumphant win over the South.
