Zikas of Concordia (NE) Recipient of David Toms Overcoming Adversity Award presented by the AJGA
Nolan Zikas, a senior at Concordia (NE), has been named recipient of the David Toms Overcoming Adversity Award presented by the AJGA. While a freshman in high school and 15 years old, and after enduring months of leg pain, Zikas was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, the most common form of bone cancer. Treatment kept Zikas homebound, as his immune system could not handle the germs found in public places. Over the next nine months he received 18 rounds of chemotherapy and six surgeries. The most major surgery involved removing the tumor, replacing his right femur bone with a titanium rod and knee replacement. After the surgery he was unable to bear weight on his right leg for three months. Despite that challenge, Zikas attended golf practice to support his teammates. Focusing on golf, and even hopping up to the tee box on his left leg to swing a club, proved the outlet to stay positive during a challenging time. The difficult moments would continue as over the next several years the cancer spread to Zikas lungs. However, he saw the new right leg as an opportunity. He had to relearn how to walk, rebuild and reuse certain muscles, learn to balance, and how to swing a club again. Through hard work he went on to become a three-time qualifier to the state championship, claiming medalist honors twice. During his freshman year at Concordia Zikas won a Great Plains Athletic Conference qualifier event. Two days later he learned that a tumor in his lungs had spread. An additional surgery was required. Although doctors told him no1 golf for a month after surgery, Zikas would still go to the basement to practice his putting. Now in his senior season at Concordia, Zikas is cancer free for three years. He has been told “you have cancer” five separate times and undergone 11 surgeries. He has participated in two different clinical trials at the Mayo Clinic. Throughout difficult times Zikas stayed focused on the positive aspects of family, love of golf, and God. Being on the golf course was his sanctuary during his battle with cancer. Zikas believes that if he was unfortunate enough to have cancer at least he was fortunate enough to have a type that allowed him to physically play golf. Zikas will leave Concordia as perhaps its most decorated golfer. He’s on pace to break the program’s record for career scoring average and is a three-time all-conference selection through his junior season. He also excelled in the classroom, earning Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar recognition. “Winning the David Toms Overcoming Adversity Award has provided me with so many opportunities and I can’t thank everyone enough for these opportunities,” said Zikas. “I also need to thank everyone involved in my life (friends, coaches, family, and God) for the continued support and will to keep fighting the great fight and still pursue my goals and dreams in life! This award is not only for me but for everyone involved in my life. Thank you again for the wonderful opportunities and considering me as the award winner.” About the AJGA: The American Junior Golf Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the overall growth and development of young men and women who aspire to earn college golf scholarships through competitive junior golf.

NORMAN, Okla. – Nick Clinard of Auburn will coach the boys team at the 2019 Toyota Junior Golf World Cup. The event will be held June 18-22 on Chukyo Golf Club’s Ishino Course outside Nagoya, Japan. “I’m excited for the opportunity to coach Team USA in Japan at the Junior Golf World Cup,” said Clinard. “It’s an honor and a privilege to be chosen by the Golf Coaches Association of America. I’m looking forward to getting to Japan, getting to learn my guys, represent the United States and compete for a title.” Clinard is in his 18th year overall as a head coach and 10th season with the Auburn men’s golf team in 2018-19. Auburn is one of four teams in the nation - Illinois, Oklahoma, and Texas the others - who have made at least seven-straight NCAA Championship appearances. In his career, Clinard has 42 tournament victories, including three conference championships, coached 12 All-Americans, 17 Academic All-Americans, two conference players of the year, three individual conference champions and 32 all-conference selections. The 2017-18 Auburn men’s golf team produced its best finish in program history when it tied for third in the country at the NCAA Championships. Freshman Brandon Mancheno tied for medalist honors at the NCAA Championships, tied for the best finish in program history before falling in a playoff. The Tigers won their fourth Southeastern Conference title and first since 2002 following a 3-2 victory over Alabama during match play at the SEC Championship. Freshman Wells Padgett secured the title with a 20-foot putt on the 18th green in the final match. Auburn finished with a record of 174-31-7 (.837) and was ranked for the entire 2017-18 season, reaching as high as No. 6 in the nation. The Tigers captured four tournament wins: The All-American, Tiger Invitational, John Hayt Invitational and the SEC Championship. Junior Trace Crowe earned medalist honors at the Gary Koch Invitational, highlighted by a program record-tying round of 63 in the second round. Mancheno and Jovan Rebula became the first duo to be named PING All-America selections in the same season since 2012 and just the sixth all-time. For his efforts, Clinard was tabbed as the SEC Coach of the Year, Southeast Golf Pride Grips Region Coach of the Year and was a finalist for the Dave Williams National Coach of the Year Award presented by Golf Pride Grips. Mancheno was selected as the SEC Freshman of the Year and was a semifinalist for the Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year Award presented by Barbasol. In addition, the Tigers boasted a GPA over 3.0 landing them a 18Birdies All-Academic Team for the ninth consecutive season, all under Clinard. The Gastonia, N.C., native graduated from Wake Forest University in 1995 with a Bachelor’s degree in speech communication. He played one year of collegiate golf at SMU before playing his final three years at Wake Forest from 1992-95, where the Demon Deacons were ranked in the top 10 in the nation all three seasons. Clinard is married to the former Susan Roberts, and they have two daughters, Chloe and Peyton.
