Byron Nelson Award presented by Cleveland Golf Finalists Named
Buccolo, Enander Hedin, Grube, James and Sykora top Nelson candidates
NORMAN, Okla. ? The GCAA has announced the finalists for the 2008 Byron Nelson Award presented by Cleveland Golf, in cooperation with the Four Seasons Resort and Club Las Colinas and the Salesmanship Club of Dallas. The finalists are Bruno Buccolo of Oklahoma Christian, Charlotte?s Jonas Enander Hedin, Rob Grube of Stanford, Washington & Lee?s Nathaniel James and Joseph Sykora of Alabama.
Candidates for the Nelson must be a graduating senior and the selection committee considers equally a nominee?s entire collegiate academic and golf career and his character and integrity while in college. Particular consideration will be given to a nominee?s good citizenship, as portrayed by Mr. Byron Nelson over the course of his life and golf career.
The recipient of the Nelson Award - which is in its seventh year of sponsorship with Cleveland Golf - will be named prior to the NCAA Division I Championships.
