Wonderful to hear that Lee Elder has this week been awarded the Bob Jones Award at Pebble Beach. It is the USGA’s highest honour and he becomes the first African American ever to receive it. Mike Davis, the USGA’s Executive Director said “Lee’s perseverance, positive attitude, and generous spirit personifies the ideals that the Bob Jones Award represents,” His grace and humility demonstrate his extraordinary character, and his work at the community level has paved the way for generations of future golfers. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to honor his incredible sportsmanship in the game.”
