Nagy named Byron Nelson Award finalist

The Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) announced Charlotte senior standout golfer Corey Nagy is among the six finalists for the 2010 Byron Nelson Award. The Nelson Award finalists are Nagy, Seth Fair of Indianapolis, Wake Forest's Brendan Gielow, Adam Long of Duke, Jack Newman of Michigan State and Air Force's Tom Whitney.

Candidates for the Nelson Award 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.
"Being recognized for this award speaks to Corey's character and integrity," said 49ers head coach Adam Pry. "I cannot think of anyone I know who embodies what this award stands for more than Corey.

"He is a true gentlemen in every sense of the word and represents everything that is great about college golf."
