University of Iowa Children's Hospital Open

In addition to the popular Nate Kaeding Golf Scramble came the University of Iowa Children's Hospital Open held the following day at Brown Deer Golf Course in Coralville. Along with Nate and his wife Sam, Iowa Football coach Kirk Ferentz and his wife Mary as well as Iowa Radio Play by Play announcer Gary Dolphin hosted the two-day event wtih proceeds going to the Children's Hospital.

The Children's Hospital Open took on a more competitive nature with the foursomes being joined by a local pro vying for a collective purse of $13,000. Ryan Smith of Muscatine joined us for the tournament and took home the championship with a six under 65.

Smith was a late addition to the tournament, and played very steady throughout the day. Eight birdies and two bogeys led to the one shot win over course pro Sean McCarty of Coralville. This was Smith's first tournament of the year as he looks to prepare for the PGA Tour stop at John Deere in the Quad Cities, or the lesser known Waterloo and Cedar Rapids Open.
