Sportsmanship Award Nominees Sought: 3/11/2009

The PDGA is requesting candidates for the annual Bob West Memorial Award for Sportsmanship, where a sportsman or sportswoman is defined as "someone who observes the rules of play and wins or loses with grace."

Do you know of an unsung PDGA member player who consistently exhibits the qualities of sportsmanship and camaraderie during competition, and who has contributed in significant other ways to the positive growth of the sport for several years or longer?

If you do, we would be very appreciative if you would email a brief statement outlining the qualities and contributions of the proposed candidate to bgraham@pdga.com by Friday March 27th.

The PDGA will review the candidates received and list those most deserving on the ballot to be voted on by the Touring Pros, the State/Province and Country Coordinators, the Major and NT event TDs, and the Board of Directors and staff.

Jay Reading was the recipient of the award in 2008. Others nominated included Joel Abrian, J. Gary Dropcho, Marty Hapner, Brad Schick, and Mike Werth.
