‘Smart golf helps
By Darren Ivy
Working in a German bank the rest
of her life was not Nebraska golfer
Shirin Homecker’s idea of a good pro
So she cashed in on her golfing abil
ity and moved to the United States five
However, it took the Munich,
Germany, native awhile to find her pot
“I was close to going home my first
year,” Homecker said. “I didn’t know
anyone. I didn’t have a car, and it took
me eight hours to do homework because
I had to look up every word.”
But Homecker stuck it out
Her perseverance resulted in a golf
scholarship to Lamar University in
Beaumont, Texas, but that didn’t work
out, so she transferred to NU and now is
one of the Comhusker’s best golfers.
And NU Coach Robin Krapfl is
glad Homecker transferred.
Since coming to NU, Homecker has
been one of the top four golfers. Krapfl
said the senior is a good player because
she is a smart golfer.
“She doesn’t make a lot of mental
mistakes,” Krapfl said. “She hits the ball *
solid and keeps it in play.”
This spring, Homecker, like many
of her teammates, has struggled to get in
a rhythm because of the weather. Her
best round has been a 76.
“I putted bad at the first meet and
lost my confidence,” Homecker said.
“I’m looking forward to turning my
Homecker said she doesn’t miss the
private golf courses in Germany
“Golf is still a prestige thing in
Germany,” Homecker said. “I like golf
better in the United States because
everyone can play.”

BACKS from page 7
Huskers list little experience on
their roster at running back.
Sophomore Dan Alexander and
freshman Dahrran Diedrick - who
joined the Huskers in January - will
vie for time.
Both Evans and Buckhalter said
the £roup has adjusted well to a new
position coach and has begun to
work better with the new offensive
And Gillespie, who said he has
been equally impressed with the run
ning backs, doesn’t think NU will
have a problem collectively making
up for the loss of Green.
Which leaves the Huskers with
only one question: Which I-back
will earn the starting spot for next
Gillespie isn’t saying, but bar
ring injury, he said he is confident
with either Evans or Buckhalter.
Evans said it would “be very
gratifying”-to get the nod.
“I’ve been through a lot physical
ly and psychologically,” Evans said.
“Earning the starting job would be
rewarding after this.”
