OMAHA, Neb. -- A Nebraska native scored a huge win on the golf course this weekend.

Scott Gutchewski, who graduated from Ralston High School and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, picked up his first professional win in almost 15 years to put him on the verge of returning to the PGA Tour.

Gutschewski holed a massive putt from the fringt to win in a playoff over Logan McAllister in the LECOM Suncoast Classic on the Korn Ferry Tour.

The win nets Gutschewski $180,000, but more importantly, puts him on the brink of re-earning his PGA Tour card.

Prior to Sunday's victory, Gutschewski had made the cut in half of his eight Korn Ferry Tour appearances this season, and he had finished no higher than tied for 22nd.

Gutschewski was playing on the Korn Ferry Tour after finishing outside of the top 125 on in the FedEx Cup last season. He had re-earned his PGA card the season prior, but was unable retain his place on the PGA Tour.

Sunday's win was the third professional victory for the 46-year-old, all of which have come on the Korn Ferry Tour. It moved him up from 66th to ninth in the Korn Ferry Tour standings, with the top 25 automatically moving onto the PGA Tour next season.
