Omaha -
Alex Schaake of Omaha took an early lead and hit cruise control to win 7 and 6 in the 36-hole Final of the 51st Nebraska Match Play Championship at Champions Run. Schaake made seven birdies during the first 18 holes to take a 5 up lead, before closing out the match with a par on the 30th hole (No. 12). It is Schaake's first Nebraska Match Play title, but his eighth NGA title over all, tied for the second most all-time, with the great Bob Astleford of Omaha. He's also the 15th player to win a Nebraska Amateur and a Nebraska Match Play. Visit the Scoring tab above for the final match play bracket. Link to the Media Center below for the video recap.
