Nick Gabrelcik graduates from North Florida, heads to Korn Ferry Tour

Nick Gabrelcik leaves the University of North Florida golf program with every important record and a Korn Ferry Tour card.

He also added his fourth Ping All-Southeast Region honor.

Gabrelcik’s Korn Ferry Tour card, which is good for the final 13 regular-season events of 2024, came through his fifth-place finish on the PGA Tour University rankings, which tracks seniors for their finishes in college events and any professional events for which they have qualified or received sponsor invitations.

He can make his first start in the BMX Charity Pro-Am June 6-9 in Greer, South Carolina.

Among Gabrelcik’s other honors at UNF:

  • First four-time winner of the ASUN Player of the Year award and was also the ASUN Freshman of the Year in 2021
  • Holds school records in scoring (69.575), victories (nine), top-five finishes (24) and top-10s (33). Gabrelcik finished among the top-10 in 75 percent of his college starts
  • Became the second UNF player to compete in the Walker Cup, and the first to play for the U.S. team. Gabrelcik also played on three Palmer Cup teams

“We’ve had a handful of good players before Nick but he raised the ball to a level that might not be matched again,” Ospreys coach Scott Schroeder said. “He did things that had not been done before at UNF and might not be again.”

Schroeder said Gabrelcik goes to the Korn Ferry Tour with one important aspect of his game pro-ready.

“His iron play is elite,” he said. “His mid-irons especially are as good as the top 20 percent on that tour right now. He’s going to have to be a little more patient sometimes and he can putt and chip better. But I think he’s going to do well.”
