MATT SHANER, PGA LEADS TEAM TO CAPTURE NATIONAL CAR RENTAL PGA PRO-AM SERIES EVENT

Lincoln, NE. – Area amateur and PGA Professional golfers teed off for first of two National Car Rental PGA Pro-Am Series at Hillcrest C.C.  Professional and Amateur golfers competing in one of Nebraska’s largest Pro-Am’s of the year were treated to near perfect golfing conditions.  Ryan Vermeer of Tiburon G.C. capitalized on these conditions to win the low professional title at three-par 69.  Vermeer made seven birdies on the day but a couple untimely bogeys and one double-bogey prevented Vermeer from really having a spectacular day.  Finishing two strokes back at one-under-par 71 was Nick Wanderscheid, PGA of Green Valley G.C.  Tony Baranowski, PGA of Shadow Ridge C.C. rounded out the top three low professionals by posting his best finish of the season with an even-par 72.

 

The team competition featured two net best balls of four.  It was a shootout with the defending champions of Matt Shaner, PGA of Kearney C.C. and his amateur partners, Bill Shaner, John Clare and Mark Morrissey at an impressive 16-under-par.  One stroke back at 15-under-par with a strong performance was Justin Onken, PGA of Champions Run and his amateur partners, Alex Farrell, Tyler Denker and Taylor Steger.  Rounding out the top three teams at 13-under-par featured a home course team of Jerad Palmer, PGA of Hillcrest C.C. and his amateur partners, Chris Ober, Scott Reins and Mark Mayer.
