OOLTEWAH, Tenn. (May 27, 2012) -- Kris Mikkelsen posed for pictures holding the Lupton Memorial trophy last year.

He did so again on Sunday with an addition.

Mikkelsen sat his eight-week son in the championship cup for pictures beside the 18th green at The Honors Course after he defended his title in the mid-amateur division of the Lupton Memorial Invitational.

"That will be a picture that we can look at 20 years from and just smile," said Mikkelsen, who wore a pink shirt for the final round again. "I'm pretty surprised that I played well given everything that's been going on since Holt was born."

Mikkelsen shot a final-round 2-under-par 70 for a 54-hole total of 2-under 214.

Third-round leader Andrew Lawson shot a final-round 78 for a 1-over total to finish tied for second with first-round leader Tyler McKeever and Honors Course member Tim Jackson at three strokes behind Mikkelsen.

Doug Hanzel won the senior division with 111 Stableford points to beat Brady Exber, Paul Simson and Chattanoogan Neil Spitalny by just one. Doug Marsh won the super-senior division by nine with 116 points.
