A Perry-Perry good Sunday for Kenny Perry and son
Sunday was a great day for Kenny Perry, who won the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship for his long-awaited first major championship at any level.
And about the same time as Perry was wrapping up his come-from-behind victory over Fred Couples and Duffy Waldorf, his son Justin was putting the finishing touches on a big victory of his own – the club championship at the Club at Olde Stone in Bowling Green, Ky.
''Wow, what an awesome weekend! Club Champ at #oldestone and it feels great!! Daily Double for Team Perry!,'' Justin tweeted after his victory.
Justin, who's a Realtor in Bowling Green these days, played college golf at Western Kentucky just like his father, and has caddied for his father on multiple occasions. In fact, Justin also tweeted on Sunday that he ''can't wait to caddy'' at the Greenbrier Classic on the PGA Tour, where Perry is scheduled to play this week.
No doubt the upcoming reunion of the First Family of Kentucky Golf at the Greenbrier will be an extra-happy one.
One final note: Kenny's victory earns hm a spot in the 2014 Players Championship next May, while Justin's earns him a spot in the Kentucky Open in August.
