The Auburn University senior will be competing in his first U.S. Open after earning his place in The Bear's Club final qualifier in Jupiter, Fla., and advancing from local qualifying at The Club at Weston Hills. Kozan, a member at The Bear's Club, posted 4-under 140 in final qualifying to finish three strokes behind medalist Patrick Rodgers. Kozan advanced to the Round of 32 in last year's U.S. Amateur at Bandon Dunes, losing to eventual semifinalist Matthew Sharpstene. The West Palm Beach, Fla., resident also qualified for match play in a pair of U.S. Junior Amateurs (2015 and 2016). Kozan posted three top-10 finishes in the 2020-21 season for the Tigers.
