Lucas Cromeenes had a little bit of trouble on the sixth hole.

But he fought through it.

Now he's being rewarded.

Cromeenes has won the professional title at the 2011 Pepsi/SuperValu Irvin Cobb Championships.

After a double bogey on the sixth hole, Cromeenes still kept his composure and was able to win the tournament.

The Metropolis, IL native and current Paducah, KY resident defeated second place finishers Cameron Carrico and Kyle Hosick by just one stroke.  Cromeenes takes home the $8,000 dollar grand prize along with his first career professional victory.

In the amateur division, Kody Alexander had very few issues.  He had the best two-day total of anyone: nine-under, 133.  That gave him the amateur championship.  Alexander won by three strokes over second place finisher Tyler Mitchell.

Matthew Zakutney wins the junior division with a two-day score of two-over, 144.
