Check out the golf courses in the Omaha metro.

FREMONT, Neb. — Omaha Creighton Prep sophomore Connor Steichen overcame a slow front nine Wednesday to win the Nebraska Junior Amateur at Fremont Golf Club.

Steichen shot a 1-over 72, leaving him at even-par 213, despite a double bogey and two bogeys in the early going. Former Prep teammate Jake Boor, a Creighton signer and the 2021 Class A high school champion, and Marcus Holling of Grand Island were three strokes behind at 216.

Boor tied Steichen with a birdie on the par-5 15th, but Steichen was in the last twosome of the day and matched it, then birdied the par-3 17th to open a two-stroke advantage.
