Nick Wanderscheid, 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 faced with some tough scoring conditions as winds were steady at 25 to 30 mph and gusts over 40 mph.  Ryan Vermeer of Tiburon G.C. managed his way through the very tough weather conditions to post an impressive one-under-par 71 and the only round under par on the day.  Vermeer made two bogeys but managed to make some timely putts for birdies on the par 5 4th hole, par 4 13th and par 4 15th hole to cap off his round.  Finishing one stroke back at even-par 72 was Jim White, PGA MP of Firethorn G.C. who got off to a rocky start with bogeys on his first two holes of the day.  However, White bounced back by playing his last 16 holes in two-under-par.  Rounding out the top three was Nick Wanderscheid, PGA of Green Valley G.C. who finished with a two-over-par 74.
