CAIRO, Neb. -- In the final edition of Spencer vs. the Pro's for 2018, Local4's Spencer Schubert entered trailing by two and finished the series trailing by three as the pro's carded yet another birdie.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"It's time for another edition of Spencer vs. the Pros, and we're making a trip out to Cairo for Centura Hills Golf Club," Spencer said. "I'm joined now by the Head Pro Garrett Rathke, and Garrett we're on the Par 4, 18th Hole - one tip before I try to take you down."

"Don't miss right and don't miss left," Rathke replied. "Driver is probably the play to try to get past the course. It's a little dogleg left to get past the tree line. Then it will give you a great opportunity to make birdie."

"All right, just get past the tree line," Spencer affirmed. "Let's take a look."

After halving the first hole at Centura Hills, Rathke maintained his honors on the tee box, and his tee shot was perfect. He crushed it over the tree line and landed it right in the middle of the fairway.

Spencer, knowing he needed to make up strokes in a hurry, followed suit with a solid drive that left him on the right side of the fairway with a good look coming in.

Spencer's second shot took off well, but a little too well as it sent him just a little bit long. He ended up on the fringe on the back part of the green. Rathke then made sure to slam the door shut on Spencer's hopes as he stuck a great second shot to within about 5-7 feet.

Spencer's birdie putt from just off the green sure looked like it was going to actually fall, but it lipped out right at the end of the putt to force him into a tap-in par. He finishes the series at even par, which is very respectable!

Rathke, however, finished off his birdie with a silky putt to put the pro's at three-under par overall.

"Well, we're going to finish our Spencer vs. the Pro's series for this summer the only way we know how - with an ice cold beer," Spencer said. "I get a par on 18, you get another birdie. The pros end up winning the series overall. Garrett, how do you think we played?"

"I think we played the hole pretty well considering the circumstances," Rathke said. "You needed to come in with a good score and hope I hit one off the planet. You put a little pressure on me there knowing we only had a two-stroke lead going into the final hole, but fortunately we were playing one of my favorites out here, so I was able to pull off a birdie. With you getting a par, it's never a bad score on a golf course, Spencer."

"All right, once again a par for me and a birdie for the pros," Spencer said. "And Garrett, a cheers to the pros for another great summer of Spencer vs. the Pros."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

That puts a wrap on another year of Spencer vs. the Pro's, but Spencer played his most competitive season yet - shooting even-par overall. The pros proved why they hold the jobs they do, however, shooting three-under par to end the series.

Thanks for watching!
