Wanderscheid captures E-Z-GO/Columbia Golf Title

Omaha, NE – Nebraska Section PGA Professionals and their amateur guests were welcomed to golf course is near perfect conditions at the E-Z-GO/Columbia Golf Pro-3Am at Oak Hills C.C.  Mother-nature provided very challenging scoring conditions with winds gusting over 20 mph and falling afternoon temperatures into the low 40’s.  Despite these adverse weather conditions, Nick Wanderscheid, PGA of Green Valley G.C. used a very red-hot putter to post an impressive three-under-par 68 to capture the low professional title.  Wanderscheid’s outward nine included a bogey-free three-under-par 33 with opening birdies on the par 5 first hole and par 3 second hole.  On his inward nine, Wanderscheid scrambled his way around and managed to make some timely pars to ensure a terrific round.  Jim White, PGA MP of Firethorn G.C. finished with an eagle on the par 4 16th hole and a birdie on the par 5 17th hole to make a run at Wanderscheid to finish at one-under-par 70 to finish solo second.  Rounding out the top three was Kevin Drew, PGA of the Field Club of Omaha and Ryan Vermeer, PGA of Tiburon G.C. who finished with a solid round of even-par 71.  The shot of the day goes to Kyle Schellpeper, PGA of Oak Hills C.C. who made an albatross on the par 5 8th hole.
