Lineups squared away for Tri-Cities Matches

from staff reports

   The lineups have been set for the Second Annual Tri-Cities Cup Matches for Thursday and Friday at Cattails at Meadowview in Kingsport.
   The amateur team, captained by Mark Meredith, has a strong lineup and appears ready to challenge the pros who won last year's matches 14-10.
   Hunter Howe, the Ridgefields Invitational winner, was unable to play last year due to illness, but is in this year's lineup along with other newcomers Mark Dugger of Elizabethton and Greeneville's Spencer Smith.
   The pros, captained by Darren Howard of The Ridges, will be without Graysburg's Steve Munson, who is unable to play this week.
   A bonus for the Pro team is that Sam Adams, head pro at Roan Valley and a former winner on the PGA Tour, will play on this year's team.
   Open Division returnees include Euggie Jones, Mark Houser and Chris Stacy. Heading the list of Senior Division entries are Fred Minor, Jerry Wilson and Kyle Minor.
   The matches will include a nine-hole best-ball match on Thursday afternoon, beginning at 4 p.m. A players' party will follow with two more nine-hole matches played Friday morning, beginning at 8:38 a.m. The first will be alternate shot and the second singles.
