2001 Mitchell High School graduate, Nate Lashley, today won his first ever PGA Tour tournament title, finishing at 25 under par at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.

Lashley shot a final round two under par 70 to finish at 25 under for the tournament and he earned a six shot win over Rory Sabbatini and Wes Roach.

Lashley’s first place finish this week earned him $1.341 million dollars.

With the win Lashley moved from 132nd in the FedExCup standings to 40th.

Lashley has earned a two year exemption on the PGA Tour and he’s earned a spot in the Open Championship in a couple weeks while also earning his first invite ever to The Masters next spring.

Prior to today only three other Nebraskans had ever won a PGA Tour event; Johnny Goodman, Tom Sieckmann, and Mark Calcavecchia.
