Nominations Now Open For 2020 Bob Jones Award

Lee Elder

The USGA is seeking nominations from the global golf community for the 2020 Bob Jones Award, the highest honour annually bestowed by the organization.

Presented since 1955, the Bob Jones Award highlights the most noteworthy demonstrations of sportsmanship in golf, and celebrates those individuals who, in the spirit of its namesake, have displayed character, integrity and respect while playing the game. Beyond his playing career — with a record-tying nine USGA championship titles — Jones embodied the game’s values throughout his life.
