Davren, Rozic named Nicklaus Award semifinalists

Eastern Florida State College men's golfers Ryan Rozic and Fraser Davren were named semifinalists for the NJCAA Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year award presented by Barbasol.

Davren, a sophomore from Glasnow, Scotland won the Coastal Alabama Spring Invitational in February and finished sixth in two other spring events this season. Davren led the Titans to a second-place finish in the District 4 Championship last week, placing in a tie for fourth with a score of 218 over the three rounds.

Rozic, a sophomore from Melbourne, has had a solid sophomore season for the Titans and finished in a tie for 12th in the district championship. 

Davren and Rozic join 28 other NJCAA golfers who were recognized for the Nicklaus Award. Finalists will be selected and announced on May 14 and the Nicklaus Award recipient will be announced May 31 at a ceremony during the final round of the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide at Muirfield Village Golf Club.

It is the third straight season a member of the Titans has been named a semifinalist for the prestigious award. Former Titan Kerry Sweeney won the Nicklaus Award in both 2015 and 2016.

 The Titans will compete in the national championship tournament in Lubbock, Texas for the 16th straight season.
