The Iowa sophomore finished tied for fifth with a total of 215 in that tournament (71, 73, 75), leading the Hawkeyes to a third place finish. Including himself, four Hawkeyes finished in the top 20.
A native of Omaha, Nebraska, Schaake had two top 20 finishes last season, and tied for fourth at the Hawkeye Great River Entertainment Invite.
So far, Schaake is tied for 28th at +2 in round one of the Windon Memorial Classic, where play has been delayed due to weather. The Hawkeyes are in third at +10.
