FRIESEN CAPTURES HARRIS GOLF CARS PRO-AM

Omaha, Nebraska – Near perfect scoring conditions welcomed Nebraska PGA Professionals and their amateur guests to Tiburon G.C. for the Harris Golf Cars Pro-3Am.  It was evident early on that everyone was shaking off some winter rust but as the temperatures rose so did the level of play as afternoon scoring was around par or better.  Steve Friesen of Firethorn G.C. made his professional debut in the Section and got off to a solid start with an opening nine-holes of one-under-par 35.  Over the course of his next 18-holes, Friesen posted six-under-par 66 to finish at seven-under-par 101 and clip the reigning Nebraska Section PGA OMEGA Player of the Year, Ryan Vermeer, PGA of Tiburon G.C. by one stroke.  Vermeer took advantage of the par 5’s as he birdied all six of them on his card.  However, he was unable to capitalize on some home course knowledge when he needed to convert a birdie.  Nick Wanderscheid, PGA of Green Valley G.C. also had a solid round of golf but an untimely triple-bogey seven on the par 4 second hole of the Mako course ended up costing Wanderscheid the chance to catch Friesen.  Jim White, PGA MP who recently celebrated his 68th birthday showed the entire field he game is ready for the 2018 season as he attempts to add onto his record setting 19-time Nebraska PGA Player of the Year award.
