Leave it to John Hurley to have a golfing adventure to go with his wedding.
On March 16, the O’Neill, Neb., native married Lyndsey Weller in Spring, Texas. Two days later, they drove to Lafayette, La., where the Web.com Tour rookie made it through Monday qualifying for a spot in the Chitimacha Louisiana Open.
In his first Web.com Tour start of 2013 and only the fourth of his pro career, the 25-year-old made the cut (65th).
“I’m playing Brazil,” Hurley said. “That will be the honeymoon.”
The Brasil Classic in Sao Paulo starts Thursday. Former Husker Steve Friesen also is in the field, but Scott Gutschewski of Omaha is bypassing the trip to South America.
Fremont graduates turn in solid results
Recent college tournaments have brought high finishes for Fremont High School graduates McKayla Anderson and Andy Sajevic.
Anderson won for the first time in her McNeese State career. Last year’s Nebraska Women’s Amateur champion captured the title at the Ocala (Fla.) Spring Invitational, shooting a college-career low 67 in the second round for the school record and finished off the win with a final-round 70.
She is a junior who plans to graduate in December, after only seven semesters, but intends to finish out the 2013-14 season with the Cowgirls.
Sajevic, a junior who is in his first season with North Carolina after transferring from Charlotte, had his best tournament as a Tar Heel by tying for seventh at the Hootie at Bulls Bay Intercollegiate in Awendaw, S.C.
