Omaha, NE – Omaha Country Club played host to Nebraska PGA’s 2023 Pro-Pro/Scratch-Scratch event, presented by Miller & Sons Golf Cars (E-Z-GO). The tournament brings together many of the best Nebraska PGA Professionals and Amateurs across the Section. 27 teams competed in the event and the format was 1 Pro Ball & 1 Amateur Ball. Misty and chilly conditions welcomed the players making an already tough golf course and even bigger challenge.

Getting off to a quick start, Judd Cornell, PGA of the University of Nebraska, Alex Carper, PGA of Alex Carper Golf, Danny Woodhead and Scott Tridle began the day 3-under through their first three holes. Between holes 13 & 14, each player in the group contributed in a big way. Cornell and Woodhead made birdies on 13 before Carper made eagle and Tridle followed with birdie on 14. Just two holes later on the par 5 – 16th, Cornell made eagle and Tridle added in a birdie.

The foursome found themselves 11-under through their first 10 holes after beginning their day on No. 8 and they took the lead and never looked back. They finished at 12-under on the day to win the overall team event by an impressive five shots. Tied for runner-up, Jonathan Beaver, PGA of The Ridge Golf Club, Ted DiGiacomo, PGA, of Happy Hollow Club, Luke Vermeer and Kolby Brown finished at 7-under. Joining them was Tony Baranowski, PGA of Platteview Golf Club, Ryan Vermeer, PGA of Happy Hollow Club, Johnny Spellerberg, Jackson Thompson at 7-under.

Only 11 of the 27 teams shot in red figures and just six teams finished better than 2-under. Capturing the Pro-Pro division was Carper and Cornell at 8-under while there was a three-way tie for the Scratch-Scratch division. The duos of Spellerberg/Thompson, Adam Severson/Josh Peters and Jackson Sitzmann/Sam Storey all finished at 5-under.
