Sajevic Battles to Win Fourth Senior Amateur

It was a different story, but the same result, as John Sajevic of Fremont battled to win the 21st Nebraska Senior Amateur Championship at Wilderness Ridge Golf Club in Lincoln on Tuesday. Last year, he caught fire and dominated the field. This year, he had to battle to win his record fourth title by one stroke with a 146 (+4) total. It's also his 10th NGA men's title, which is a new record. Visit the Scoring tab above for full results, and scroll down to read about Sajevic's win and to see the video recap and interview.

Code of Conduct:

The NGA may reject an entry application, revoke an accepted application, expel from the Championship and/or suspend a player from future championships if the player engages in conduct detrimental to the integrity and image of the game of golf and/or public confidence in the NGA. Such conduct may include, but is not limited to, damage to the golf course or the player's equipment, verbal or physical abuse of spectators, officials, volunteers, or staff, blatant or excessive profanity, disorderly behavior, failure to abide by club rules, or any other unbecoming conduct.
