“The Spangler, 2013” Set for Sept. 13 at ArborLinks

By NU Athletic Communications

The ninth annual "The Spangler" will be held Friday, Sept. 13 at ArborLinks Golf Course in Nebraska City. "The Spangler" is a special event benefiting the Dick Spangler Scholarship Fund. The Dick Spangler Scholarship, honoring Nebraska coach Bill Spangler's late father, Dick, is awarded annually to a Nebraska golfer who made significant contributions to the men's golf program through his attitude, effort and team spirit.

The entry fee per player for "The Spangler" is $200.00, and that covers golf, cart, range, food and drink. Registration and the opening of the range will be at 10 a.m. "The Spangler" is a 4-person shamble that is set for a noon shotgun start. The 19th Hole Celebration is slated for 5 p.m. For more information, please contact Rich Spangler at rlspangler3@gmail.com.

Dick Spangler earned three letters for the Nebraska golf team from 1950 to 1952, was a Nebraska Amateur champion and served on the board of the Trans-Mississippi Golf Association. Always a gentleman, his quick wit, enjoyable sense of humor and his dedication to the game of golf bring honor and credit to our University and the great game of life. Spangler was inducted into the Nebraska Golf Hall of Fame in 1997.
