Midlands golfers were shut out in Monday’s qualifying for the Pinnacle Bank Championship.

That last happened at Omaha’s stop on what is now the Korn Ferry Tour in 2008.

The closest was amateur Alex Schaake of Omaha. The Big Ten player of the year at Iowa, who will be a senior, and four-time winner of the Nebraska Amateur was three strokes out of a playoff at Bent Tree in Council Bluffs.

Schaake, who shot a 2-under 70, was 1-over making the turn after bogeying what he considered an easy par-5. An eagle 3 on 15 and a birdie on the next hole weren’t enough to bring him back.

“I’m pretty disappointed in how I played,” said Schaake, who succeeded last year in Monday qualifying at Bent Tree. “I didn’t play the par-5s on the first like I needed to. I hit a loose drive on 9 (a par-5), so there’s two shots right there I could have gotten, for it would have been driver-wedge had I hit it in the fairway.”

The field of 160 was split between Bent Tree and Wilderness Ridge in Lincoln, where it took a 3-under 68 to claim one of the six available spots in the PBC. The best from Midlands golfers were 72s from second-year pro Rylee Reinertson of Gibbon and NU men’s golf assistant coach Judd Cornell of Omaha.

Andre Metzger of Scottsdale, Arizona, who played in the PBC last year as an alternate call-up, and former Iowa State golfer Denzel Ieremia of New Zealand had the low rounds at Bent Tree of 8-under 64.

Blake Cannon, a 2017 Colorado State graduate, had Wilderness Ridge’s best score of 5-under 66.

Schaake came close to qualifying on Sunday through the Indian Creek Invitational won by Kansas-bound Luke Kluver of Norfolk. Schaake was tied for the lead with three holes left and was on the 18th green with a potential tying putt had Kluver not made a 15-footer first.

A year from now, Schaake expects to join older brother Carson in pro golf. Carson, who’s won on the Dakotas Tour this season, shot 77 Monday. They now head to their birthplace for the Waterloo (Iowa) Open this weekend, with Alex playing in the amateur division.

“These guys out here are grinding every single day, trying to make money,” Alex said. “I’m not too unhappy with how it all turned out. I know someone’s going to get in on the spot I could have and they could do big things.”
