Former Nebraska golfer set for career debut on the LPGA

Former Nebraska women’s golfer Madeleine Sheils is expected to make her LPGA debut Thursday at the Portland Classic in Oregon. Sheils was an All-Big Ten performer for the Huskers as a senior in 2012, and finished second in a qualifier for the event on Monday to earn her first spot in an LPGA tournament.

Sheils is currently in her second season on the Symetra Tour. She ranks third on the developmental tour’s money list so far with six top-25 finishes, including a tie for fifth and a tie for seventh.
