BRANSON – The A-Plus Payroll team, featuring pro golfer and 2008 Central High School graduate Kevin Kring, captured the Integrity Pro-Am championship on Saturday at LedgeStone Country Club.

Third place went to the Barker, Phillips, Jackson team of Sean McQueary, Rob Haik, Larry Smith and Justin French. Their pro was Bob Jacobson.
