    2008 Kentucky State Amateur champion Tyler Sharpe claimed his fifth straight J.B. Holmes Invitational on Sunday afternoon at the Campbellsville Country Club.

    Sharpe, from Greensburg and a Lindsey Wilson College graduate, bested 2009 Taylor County High School grad Dillon Mays, who will transfer from Eastern Kentucky University to Western Kentucky in the fall, on the first hole of a sudden death play-off. Sharpe had tied the match with a birdie on No. 17, and Mays just missed a birdie putt on the first extra hole.
