Nicholas Gabrelcik captured his second-career FSGA Championship win

WINTER GARDEN, Fla. –  Nicholas Gabrelcik went wire-to-wire to win the Amateur Public Links Championship on Sunday at Orange County National Golf Club and Lodge. He carded three under-par rounds to post a 10-under 206 for the championship.

The Trinity native was in first place heading into the final round on Sunday, with a one-stroke lead over the field. He posted a 1-under on the front nine, with two birdies and a bogey, with a one-shot lead over Josh Pisarri and Eugene Hong.

Gabrelcik birdied two of the four holes on the back nine, moving to 11-under for the championship. He played the last three holes at 1-over to secure the win with a final-round 2-under 70. This is Gabrelcik's second state title, after he captured the Amateur Match Play Championship last year.
