Celebrating 40 years as the professional association for ALL disc golfers

Sportsmanship Nominations Sought

The PDGA is requesting nominations for candidates for the annual Bob West Memorial Award for Sportsmanship, where a sportsman or sportswoman is defined as "someone who exemplifies sportsmanship both on and off the disc golf course, observes the rules of play, and wins or loses with grace."

Do you know of an unsung PDGA member 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 write up a brief statement outlining the qualities and contributions of the proposed candidate and email it to the PDGA Office Manager. All nominations must be submitted by June 23, 2015.

The PDGA office will review the nominations received and list the top 5 most deserving on the ballot to be voted on by the Touring Pros, the State/Province and Country Coordinators, the PDGA Major and National Tour event tournament directors, and the PDGA Board of Directors and staff.

Jonathan Baldwin #18114 was the recipient of the 2013 Bob West Memorial Sportsmanship award, which was presented to him at the 2014 PDGA Professional World Championships in Portland, OR.

Previous winners of all the different PDGA Awards from 1984 to 2013 can be viewed by downloading the PDGA Award Winners PDF. The awards include Player of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Tournament Director of the Year, and the Bob West Sportsmanship Award.
