About Nebraska

I grew up in Geneva, Nebraska and am a 2018 UNL PGA Golf Management graduate. I have been a team member of the Nebraska PGA staff since 2018. I manage and operate the Nebraska Junior Golf Tour with the help of the NJG Assistants I hire each season. I am also the PGA Jr. League staff liaison for the PGA Professionals in the Nebraska Section and run the Section post season events. My department is also responsible for running the Drive, Chip and Putt local qualifiers each summer to start the kids' journeys of hopefully advancing all the way to the National Finals at Augusta National (Home of the Masters) each spring. I also assist with PGA REACH Nebraska programming, specifically PGA HOPE (Helping our Patriots Everywhere). I married my wife Katherine in June of 2022 and we live in Lincoln, Nebraska.
