Ashland, Nebraska – Spring was in the air as temperatures were in the mid-70’s and welcomed Nebraska PGA Professionals to Iron Horse Golf Club for the Club Car Pro-Pro.  This new event featured one-best-ball of the two players and a professional skins game.  Although not the longest course, Iron Horse Golf Club has numerous penalty areas, OB throughout and the greens were in immaculate condition with plenty of speed.  It took many teams numerous holes to get adjusted but in the end the team of Jon Petersen, PGA of Tiburon G.C. and Shane Zywiec, PGA of Highlands G.C. captured the team title with a seven-under-par 64.  Petersen and Zywiec played their last 14 holes in seven-under-par and featured a spectacular eagle on the par 5 tenth hole by Zywiec.  Closely on their heels were four teams that posted a solid round at five-under-par 66.

The Nebraska Section PGA would like to thank Presenting Sponsors, Nebraska Golf & Turf (Club Car) and regional representative, Don Brudny.  In addition, we truly appreciate our Supporting Sponsors, Chronogolf and regional representative, Ben Cruise and PGA TOUR Tournaments for their support.  The Nebraska PGA also featured Tito’s Handmade Vodka as the Official Wine and Spirits of the Nebraska Section PGA. Tito’s Handmade Vodka “Holes of the Week” are brought to you by Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits of Nebraska. Players will vie for the Tito’s Handmade Vodka “Holes of the Week” title by competing in the various 21 “Holes of the Week” throughout the 2019 season and will post their lowest scores relative to par.  Lastly, this event would not be possible without the support of The Iron Horse G.C. professional staff led by General Manager, Brian Kuta, PGA and Golf Course Superintendent, Nevin Kotera.
