Their team shot an 18 under for the win. But the most talked about competition was for second place. Spirited team rivals, Titan Contracting of Owensboro and Kentucky Association of Manufacturing of Frankfort both shot a 16 under. Both teams, who were tied, came to a draw on hole nine which still maintained a tied. So both teams had to send one representative up for a single stroke who's drive lands closest to the pin.
