The final event of the 2016-2017 Eastern Kentucky University PGA Golf Management tournament schedule, the Kincer Cup, ended the year with an incredible finish. For the third consecutive year, the North Team brought home the annual Kincer Cup prize. However, this year it was due to a victory in 2016. On Friday May 5th at the University Club at Arlington, each team battled through blustery conditions to a 4-4 tie, which meant the North Team would retain the Cup for 2017. The prized Kincer Cup is named after EKU’s PGM Director, Ms. Kim Kincer.

This one-day, match-play "Ryder Cup style" event allows 24 of the program's top point earning PGA Golf Management students from both the fall and spring semester tournaments to battle for bragging rights in a North states vs. South states team event.

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 North team members each received a piece of crystal and bragging rights for another year.
