Hurley from golf

Former state champion John Hurley, of Nebraska, Nebraska, recently announced to leave professional golf.

"Although it's hard to move further … I will continue to play, but now I will enjoy the game more knowing that life does not drop to my hand," said Tomball, Texas, who was on Twitter.

Hurley had five professional wins, played a year at the Tour and played PGA Tour events at Quad Cities and Phoenix after the NCAA's Texas A & M team and won three Nebraska Match Play titles in four years.

One hook

Omahan Bob Meyer thought he would take his team 2-up in an occasional four-game match at the Sand Valley 17-hole, the par-3 Sandbox course, when he put his victim on a nine-hole 12 hole.

However, Omaha eye doctor Pete Whitted rejected the shotgun and pulled 138 feet (46 meters) away.

"Instead of being 2-up, the match was square, and everyone who participated laughed uncontrollably. It's the longest putt I've ever seen and makes the game so fun," Meyer said.

Hello Skinner

LPGA actors Pat Bradley, Amy Alcott, Nancy Lopez and Laura Davies appeared in a video for North Platte golf pro Dick Skinner at last year's Nebraska Golf Hall of Fame banquets.

Sixteen-year-old LPGA winner Val Skinner, Dick's daughter, said during the presentation that Alcott used Skinner's wins to win five times in one season, and the wedge he made for Bradley was involved in her show at the USGA golf course.
