The reigning champions of the Integrity Home Care Pro-Am turned the trick again Saturday at LedgeStone Country Club and, even better, earned a return trip to play at Pinehurst, N.C.’s Nos. 2 & 8  courses – where Springfield’s Payne Stewart once won a U.S. Open.

The team of Nathan Stokes, Jacob McLaughlin, Ryan Pinnel and Kent Oglesby teamed with pro Ron Streck to fire a 54 and win on a scorecard tiebreaker.

The victory means the group can play in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ National Scramble Championship on Nov. 17-19 at Pinehurst.
