KEARNEY, NE (August 27, 2017) - For Nebraska Four-Ball winners Dylan Heng and Lance Lawson it was worth the wait. Originally scheduled for April but due to the weather the event was postponed to late August and that proved to be perfectly okay with Heng and Lawson.
Tied for the lead at the start of the final round following an 8-under 64, Heng and Lawson exploded during the final round at Awarii Dunes Golf Club to finish 19-under-par and as a record five-stroke winners.
The duo pulled away on Sunday with a record setting 11-under 61 that included 11 birdies and for the second straight day a blemish free scorecard. Heng and Lawson began the day a bit slowly, after a birdie on No. 1 they parred the next four holes before catching fire and birdieing Nos. 6-12 in succession and then adding additional circles on the 14th, 16th, and 17th holes.
Overall the duo combined for 17 birdies and one eagle over the course of two rounds while really creating their separation the back nine where they shot consecutive 6-under 30's for a 12-under total on the side.
Doug Mitchell and Dave Roseberry finished second at 14-under, Aaron Stockton and Jon Deines took third at 12-under while Nick Swaney and Baylor Falk; Greg Stanek and Philip Maschka shared fourth at 11-under.
