On Monday, July 10th, nearly 80 golfers and former Husker players came together for the 2nd Annual Team Jack Golf Classic, held at Wilderness Ridge in Lincoln. It was a beautiful day, which began with a Longest Drive competition between the former Husker players. Golfers could buy chances to guess which one of the players would win the competition. Nate Gerry was the winner of the competition, with his drive traveling 296 yards while barefoot! Joe Ganz and Brandon Reilly were close behind. Rick Sliva of Fat Brain Toys won a new putter for guessing the winner correctly!
