Other Huskers also showed strong performances, with Evan McDermott, Evan Myers, and Grant Jabenis all finishing in the top 15, scoring 73, 74, and 74, respectively. Nebraska’s Head Coach Judd Cornell finished tied for 19th with a 75.

Scheve’s next challenge will be at one of the ten U.S. sites for final qualifying, including notable venues such as the Dallas Athletic Club on May 20, and others like Lake Merced Golf Club in California and The Bear’s Club in Florida, all hosting on June 3.
