Sheils Wins First Pro Event

Former Nebraska women's golfer Madeleine Sheils captured a tournament title in her first event as a professional golfer, winning the season-opening event at Club West on the Cactus Tour on Wednesday, Jan. 30.

Sheils graduated from the University of Nebraska in December of 2012, after competing as one of the top Huskers on the course for four seasons from 2009 through 2012. The native of Boise, Idaho, fired three straight even-par rounds of 72 on the 6,077-yard layout at Club West to finish the 54-hole event at 216.

Sheils entered Wednesday's final round in third place at 144, two shots back of Caitlin McCleary and one stroke behind Sadena Parks in a 23-player field. Sheils closed the tournament with a one-stroke victory over Parks, who managed a two-over 74 in the final round to take runner-up honors.

Sheils will continue Cactus Tour action next week by competing in the second tour event at Wigwam Red, Feb. 4-6.
