University of North Florida golfer Nick Gabrelcik makes the Valspar Championship cut

For Nick Gabrelcik, the first taste of life on the PGA Tour is an occasion you will never forget – and now his Tour debut continues this weekend.

The University of North Florida junior shot a 4-under 67 in Friday’s second round of the Valspar Championship, climbing clear of the cut line in his PGA Tour debut.

And not just any debut — one with friends and family cheering him on in the crowd, his brother Donnie serving as caddy and a hometown feel in the air. The Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Golf Resort in Palm Harbor, north of St. Petersburg, is less than 10 miles southwest of Mitchell High School, where Gabrelcik earned honorable mention honors all four seasons.
