Weekend wrap-up (May 5)

J.B. Holmes (second from left) competed in staple events like the CB&I Boys Championship and the Natural Resource Partners Bluegrass Junior.
During a rare return to golf at the Concession Cup, Trip Kuehne, a member of the inaugural Wyndham Cup, reflected on the 25th anniversary of the Wyndham Cup.

“I remember Tiger Woods was my partner and we kicked Stewart Cink’s butt,” Kuehne said. “He was so mad he was close to tears.”
Cink’s East squad went on to win the first Wyndham Cup (then known as Canon Cup), 32-18. A year before the inaugural Cup, Cink defeated Kuehne, 3 and 2, to win the 1989 Polo Golf Junior Classic.

Before attending the University of Kentucky, Holmes competed in five AJGA events from 1998-2000. He made appearances in staple events like the CB&I Boys Championship in 2000 and the Natural Resource Partners Bluegrass Junior in 1998 and 1999, with his career-best performance coming at Bellefonte Country Club in 1999 when he tied for fourth.

Lewis played in eight AJGA tournaments during the 2001 and 2002 seasons. Her junior career was highlighted by a T4 finish at the 2002 Aaron’s / Bob Estes Abilene Junior and a seventh-place finish at the 2002 Junior All-Star at Colonial.
The most decorated women’s golfer in the University of Arkansas history, her collegiate career concluded as a four-time All-SEC and four-time All-American selection. Lewis was a two-time SEC champion, as a freshman in 2005 and as a senior in 2008. As a junior, she won the 2007 NCAA individual title and was presented the Dinah Shore Trophy.
