Seth Reeves Wins the Pinnacle Bank Championship presented by Aetna

August 02, 2020
By Sean Wildhack, PGATOUR.COM

OMAHA, Nebraska – Spurred by a final-round 64, Seth Reeves erased an eight-stroke deficit to capture his first Korn Ferry Tour title at the Pinnacle Bank Championship presented by Aetna, finishing the week at 11-under 273.

“I fist pumped my birdie putt on No. 18 because I thought it secured a top-10,” Reeves said after his win became official. “I’m just kind of shocked, really.”

Reeves, who teed off more than two hours before the final group, dropped a shot with an early bogey on the par-4 third. Despite the setback, the Georgia Tech product rebounded with birdies on Nos. 4, 6 and 7 to get back to 6-under for the week.

As Reeves made his way to the back nine, 54-hole leader Ryan Ruffels began his final round. Ruffels struggled early carding back-to-back bogeys on Nos. 2 and 3. Despite the early struggles, he followed a birdie on the par-5 fourth with an eagle at the par-5 seventh and regained the solo-lead at 13-under.

Reeves caught fire on the back nine and continued his climb up the leaderboard. After birdies on Nos. 10 and 11, the 29-year-old recorded an eagle on the par-5 15th, moving him to 10-under for the week. On his 72nd hole, Reeves made his sixth birdie of the day to post 11-under and take the clubhouse lead.

“I started realizing it was close when I was tied for the lead and the last group only had two holes to play,” Reeves said. “I just was just kind of like, ‘Wow this could actually happen.’”

After the eagle, Ruffels gave a stroke back with a bogey on the par-3 eighth. The Australian tallied another birdie at the par-4 10th to get back to 13-under, but quickly gave two strokes back with bogeys on Nos. 11 and 13. Entering his final stretch of holes, Ruffels carded a birdie on the par-5 15th to regain the lead at 12-under.

As Reeves began to warm up on the range for a potential playoff, Ruffels carded back-to-back bogeys on Nos. 16 and 17, giving Reeves the solo-lead at 11-under. On his 72nd hole, Ruffels’ lengthy birdie attempt narrowly missed, securing Reeves’ first Korn Ferry Tour title.

“I didn’t think I was going to get it done,” he said. “I decided to come back out here and warm up like normal and was shocked that I had the lead with one hole to be played in the tournament. It went the opposite of how I thought, I’m still shocked.”

After earning his PGA TOUR card through the 2018 Korn Ferry Tour Finals, Reeves struggled as a rookie on TOUR. In 25 TOUR starts, Reeves made 11 cuts but failed to retain his card.

After returning to the Korn Ferry Tour this season, his struggles continued. Prior to his victory, Reeves had made only three cuts in 11 starts this season and entered the week ranked No. 135 on the points list. With his win on Sunday, Reeves jumped 117 spots to No. 18 on the points list.

“I finished dead-last two weeks ago. It’s been hard, I’ve been in kind of a dark place with my game and trying to figure out how to play to my abilities,” Reeves said. “When you struggle as much as I have, you have all those doubts. This tells me I can do it. If I can do it once, I can do it again.”

Qualifiers Selected for Pinnacle Bank Championship

Nebraskan Carson Schaake among qualifiers to earn a spot in Korn Ferry Tour Stop

Three golfers — including one from Omaha — will play in the PGA TOUR’s 2020 Korn Ferry Tour Pinnacle Bank Championship July 27-August 2 and compete for a share of the $600,000 purse.

Will Grimmer, a native of Cincinnati, Ohio, who turned pro in 2019 and Wisconsin native Jordan Niebrugge who broke Bobby Jones’ record for the lowest score by an amateur at the Open Championship in 2015 have earned two of the spots in the 2020 Pinnacle Bank Championship presented by Aetna and hosted at The Club at Indian Creek. Grimmer and Niebrugge are the restricted qualifiers selected by the Pinnacle Bank Championship board of directors.

Omahan Carson Schaake, a graduate of Creighton Prep who played his collegiate career at University of Iowa, earned his spot by winning the Nebraska Qualifier on July 2, 2020 played at ArborLinks. He shot a 10-under, 134 to edge 2019 Pinnacle Bank Championship qualifiers Ryan Vermeer and Luke Kluver, who finished tied for second place at 7-under-par.

Grimmer is a graduate of The Ohio State University, during which time he represented the U.S. on the Arnold Palmer Cup Team. He has 13 USGA Championships, which were highlighted by two US Open appearances with a made cut at Shinnecock Hills in 2018. He also competed at The Memorial on the PGA Tour last year on a sponsor’s exemption.

Niebrugge earned his Korn Ferry Tour status after a 2016-2017 season highlighted by a top 10 finish on the Mackenzie Tour Order of Merit where he had two runner-up finishes and a T35 finish at the 2017 US Open in Wisconsin. He played collegiate golf at Oklahoma State, finishing his amateur career as the fifth ranked amateur in the world, and was a Byron Nelson finalist.

The Championship’s other unrestricted exemption will be awarded to the winner of the Indian Creek Invitational this Sunday, July 12.

Pinnacle Bank Championship Media Day

The Pinnacle Bank Championship announced the rules that will be followed while covering the 2020 Championship, scheduled for July 30 – August 2.

The PGA TOUR has developed a Media Operations plan which will provide media the opportunity to cover the Pinnacle Bank Championship, while also taking into consideration the protocols necessary to all for the Tour’s return in a safe and responsible manner.


Exemptions for the 2020 Championship will be announced at a later date.


The Championship is also announcing that this year’s benefitting charity will be Children’s Hospital & Medical Center. The Championship has given more than $252,000 to area charities supporting such organizations as Make-a-Wish Nebraska, The Lane Thomas Foundation, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and TeamMates Mentoring Program, which has been the tournament’s benefactor as its charitable partner since 2017.

“We are grateful to Pinnacle Bank and all who support and enjoy the Pinnacle Bank Championship, which will benefit Children’s Hospital & Medical Center in 2020,” said Beth Greiner, Executive Director of Children’s Foundation. “As the only full-service, pediatric health care center in Nebraska, all funds raised will benefit the health – and improve the lives – of our region’s children.”


As was announced on Monday, June 15, the Championship will be played without spectators. The decision was made in accordance with and recommendations from local, state and federal government agencies tasked with ensuring the safety of those essential to conducting the tournament. While some of those restrictions have been loosened in recent days, multiple options were vetted before making our decision, it would be difficult to change course at this point in time.

Pinnacle Bank Championship Set for July to be Held Without Fans

Decision made to protect the health and safety of players and community.

Omaha, Neb. – The Pinnacle Bank Championship announced today that the 2020 Championship, scheduled for July 30 – August 2, will be contested without fans onsite. The Korn Ferry Tour said it supports the decision believing conducting the tournament without crowds onsite is in the best interest of protecting everyone, including the Omaha community at large.

The decision was made in accordance with and recommendations from local, state and federal government agencies tasked with ensuring the safety of those essential to conducting the tournament.

“While we will miss the great crowds and visible community support at the Championship, we look forward to next year’s tournament scheduled for July 26-August 1, 2021 when we can enjoy golf together again,” said Jessica Brabec, Pinnacle Bank Championship Tournament Director.

“In January, we were moving full steam ahead with our plan for this tournament, and like everyone else, by March, based on the information available, we had to make some tough decisions. We felt, and the TOUR agreed, that no spectators was the best course of action to take for the safety of the players and the community,” Brabec said.

In spite of fans not being onsite, the Tournament will continue its long tradition of supporting a local nonprofit through its charity donation.

“We are fortunate to be able to support local nonprofits through the generosity of local companies and appreciate their support in spite of the challenges we’ve all had to work through this year,” said Marc Hock, president of Pinnacle Bank.

The pro-ams scheduled for Monday, July 27 and Wednesday, July 29 will go on as scheduled. Players will all use separate carts and those playing in the Wednesday pro-am will play nine holes with each of two pros.

Unfortunately, Youth Day is also impacted by this decision. Tournament officials are working on a plan to engage with young people through a virtual event. Details to follow.

PGA TOUR announces Korn Ferry as umbrella sponsor of newly named Korn Ferry Tour

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 19, 2019

CONTACTS:
Stewart Moore, PGA TOUR, 904-540-2765, StewartMoore@pgatourhq.com
Dan Gugler, Korn Ferry, 310-226-2645, Dan.Gugler@kornferry.com

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida – The PGA TOUR and Korn Ferry (NYSE: KFY) announced today a 10-year agreement making the Los Angeles-based, global organizational consulting firm the Umbrella Sponsor of the newly named Korn Ferry Tour.

In replacing Web.com, Korn Ferry’s sponsorship takes effect June 19 and extends through the 2028 season. The Korn Ferry Tour will continue to award PGA TOUR membership to the Tour’s 50 leading players, including the top 25 from the Regular Season points list and the top 25 from the three-event Korn Ferry Tour Finals points list.

The announcement was made jointly by PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan, Korn Ferry Chief Executive Officer Gary Burnison, and Korn Ferry Tour President Alex Baldwin on Wednesday morning in New York City.

“We welcome Korn Ferry to the PGA TOUR family with today’s announcement,” said Monahan. “Our thanks to Gary Burnison and his team for a partnership that will promote Korn Ferry’s mission of helping people and organizations exceed their potential, collaborating with a Tour that has proven to identify the next generation of PGA TOUR talent over the last 30 years.”

Korn Ferry also becomes a PGA TOUR Official Marketing Partner as the “Official Leadership Development Firm” of the PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions, and Korn Ferry Tour. Additionally, Korn Ferry will assume sponsorship of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance in Evansville, Indiana – the third and final event in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals.

“We’re excited to partner with the PGA TOUR. Our organizations are both all about talent – getting players and people to that next level and advancing their careers. People will never discover their full potential until they are provided an abundance of opportunity. Korn Ferry and the Korn Ferry Tour provide that opportunity,” said Burnison. “This sponsorship will further elevate our brand as a global organizational consultancy and extend awareness of our firm to new audiences around the world.”

Korn Ferry develops and coaches 1.2 million people a year, puts someone in a new job every three minutes and has worked with companies to evaluate and assess nearly 70 million professionals. The firm has offices in more than 50 countries and 8,500 employees.

Korn Ferry works with clients to design their organizational structures, roles and responsibilities. The firm helps them hire the right people and advise them on how to reward, develop and motivate their workforce. Korn Ferry also helps professionals at all levels navigate and advance their careers.

“This is a tremendous day for our organization, and we are eager to work with Gary and his team as we continue to build the Korn Ferry Tour from the strong foundation already in place,” said Baldwin, the first female to be named president of one of the PGA TOUR’s six global Tours earlier this year. “Korn Ferry has an impassioned desire to enhance the careers and brands of our players through this incredibly competitive Tour. This partnership will allow us to further those goals while elevating the Tour and our tournaments for our partners and fans.”

With 50 available PGA TOUR cards for the following season (since 2013), the Korn Ferry Tour is the path to the PGA TOUR. Twenty-five TOUR cards are reserved for the leading points earners at the end of the 24-event Regular Season. Another 25 are up for grabs at the three-event Korn Ferry Tour Finals that follow the Regular Season in August and September.

During the PGA TOUR’s 2017-18 season, eight players from the Korn Ferry Tour Class of 2017 won titles, including Aaron Wise, whose victory at the 2018 AT&T Byron Nelson was the 500th by a former Korn Ferry Tour player – a list which includes 24 major championships and eight PLAYERS Championships, including Gary Woodland’s win on Sunday at the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

Four players from the Class of 2018 have won on the PGA TOUR this season – Cameron Champ (Sanderson Farms Championship), Adam Long (The Desert Classic), Martin Trainer (Puerto Rico Open) and Max Homa (Wells Fargo Championship).

Other notable PGA TOUR players who got their start on the Korn Ferry Tour include major champions Justin Thomas, Jason Day, Bubba Watson and Zach Johnson.
