Mike Flavin defended his Tennessee State Championship title by shooting rounds of 27-29-26-27 for a total of 109 and beating local favorite Sid Davis by one stroke.  Davis was in command of the championship after two rounds with opening scores of 26 and 25.  However, the Kingsport course is proving to be a consistent challenge for players to put together low scores on a steady basis.  One of the reasons for the challenge for the TSC was the back-up experienced on certain holes due to the trouble that continuously awaits the players.  However, everybody experienced the same wait, but Flavin persevered and closed with a 9-under par to clip Davis...and also received an additional $2000 provided by one of the tournament sponsors - Food City.  The PPA thanks Food City for their support...especially Mike Flavin.  

In the APA division, Ron Epperson was 4 strokes down to Todd Trent after two rounds - but made his move in round 3 by shooting an impressive 27, while Trent struggled with a 32.  Epperson had a one-stroke lead going into the final round.  Both players closed the last round identically.  Shooting 16s on the front and 15s on the back-nine. Leaving Epperson with a one-stroke victory with a total of 120.
