WANDERSCHEID WINS INAUGURAL CHAMPIONSHIP AND WRAPS UP OMEGA PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Omaha, NE – Gusty winds and on and off again rain could not put a damper on Nick Wanderscheid, PGA of Green Valley G.C. from playing arguably one of his finest rounds of the year to capture the Nebraska PGA Pro-Am Championship at famed Omaha C.C. Entering the championship, Shane Zywiec, PGA of Highlands G.C. held a slim lead of 17 points over Wanderscheid for the OMEGA Player of the Year points race. Zywiec opened with an outward nine of one-over-par 36 and took a one stroke lead over Wanderscheid heading into the final nine holes. Wanderscheid made an eagle on the par 5 10th hole to jump start his round while Zywiec made a par on the same hole. An untimely double-bogey by Zywiec on the par 5 16th hole did him and resulted in a five-over-par 76. Wanderscheid finished capped off his round with an impressive birdie on the par 4 18th hole to shoot one-under-par 70 and the only Professional to finish under-par for the day. Wanderscheid finished the year with 1.95 points more than the three-time defending Player of the Year Zywiec to capture his first OMEGA Player of the Year Award. Tremendous playing all year long by both of these champions!
