Kevin Lacey, winner of the IPPT South Major (Louisville, KY).

21 April 2002 - Louisville, KY - Cincinnati Touring Pro Kevin Lacey left little on the table Sunday as he feasted on drying carpets in Louisville to win the IPPT South Major.

Then came the knock out punch that tied the course record. A 21 in the second round to open up a 10 stroke lead over Dave Nutini. Lacey followed that with a third round 27 to post a 36 under par 72 at the half way point. Three putters, Brandon Yee, Jeff Garrison and Tom Gross were 11 shots back in second place with 83's.

Zach Smith, winner of the IPPT South Major APA Division (Louisville, KY).
