Rare Honor For Golfer

 Golfer Fred Funk is larger than life in Omaha these days.  A 12-foot statue of his likeness has been installed in front of the Mutual of Omaha building.  It depicts Funk on a putting green with a leader board behind him.  Funk is sponsored by Mutual of Omaha and will be competing in next month’s U.S. Senior Open.  He won the event in 2009.
