k2014: Junks came into the Ryder Cup quietly but was very quickly known. After a dominant performance against Zach and Steve, he managed to help take down Team Kendziorski on Saturday morning. After that, he upset Andy Kasischke handing him his only loss of the weekend to finish a perfect 3-0 on the weekend. A perfect weekend and one of Lombardo's key performers.
2015: After a 3-0 record in 2014 Junks came into 2015 with high expectations. He immediately lost his undefeated record thanks to Casey and the Bandit. However, he shot very well on Saturday earning a draw against Patty and Andy in the morning and a big victory against Andy in the afternoon. Immediately after both afternoon rounds, he was sound asleep in his bed being attacked by ticks.
2016: As impossible as it seems, Junks went a perfect 3-0 again at the Ryder Cup in 2016. He partnered up with the MVP on Friday and had to face the utterly worthless team of Kevin and Luke on Saturday. But the big surprise victory came on Saturday afternoon as he was able to make a legendary comeback. After trailing by a hole heading into #17, Junks finished par – par to win the final two holes and beat Patty by 1 UP.
2017: Junks had a pretty good 2017, considering being paired with an ailing Ken in the Saturday morning round. Junks and Dan took on Dever and the Bandit and kicked those twerps to the curb. Saturday morning was a tough morning for Junks and Ken. By the turn, Junks was looking towards his afternoon round against Patty. The afternoon match was up and down, with Junks just holding on, taking 18 to keep it AS with Patty. Considering the Lombardo let down, once again, Junks was a key contributor considering his team let him down.

Junks is Lombardo's wildcard. His scores range from the low 90s to 110s. You never know what you are going to get with him on the golf course. But, you usually have a good idea what you will get off the course. His downfall could be the enormous amounts of binge drinking peer pressure that will be applied by Pat Mihelich. If Dan-o isn't sleeping on that first tee box, smart money would be on Junks there.
Ryder Cup Highlight
Junks was on a "high" the whole weekend of 2014. While he was a perfect 3-0 on the golf course in dominating fashion, the highlight for his Ryder Cup had to be getting the pizzas delivered to the condo 2 hours after eating dinner. Never has anyone been so fired up for some late night pizza.
Similar to Spiderman, Junks gained super powers last year when he was bit by a tick. Now Junks has the ability to dwell into somewhere (his condo) and hibernate for several months.
