By Southland GolfPublished: September, 2012

Steve Stricker has been named the 2012 recipient of the Payne Stewart Award. The award goes to a player that reflects Stewart’s respect for golf’s traditions and commitment to charity.

“This award means a great deal to the players on the PGA TOUR, and I am truly grateful to be the recipient of the Payne Stewart Award,” said Stricker. “I take great pride in being recognized for the values that the Payne Stewart Award stands for. I was fortunate enough to spend time with and compete against Payne, and I watched how he handled himself on the course, with his fellow competitors, with the fans and volunteers. I hope that by leading by example, just as Payne did, that our younger players will follow in the traditions of sportsmanship, integrity and charitable efforts that he helped bring to our sport.”

Stewart died in a plane crash in 1999.

Stricker is the 15th recipient of the award and joins an exclusive club that includes Byron Nelson, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Ben Crenshaw, Nick Price, Tom Watson, Jay Haas, Brad Faxon, Gary Player, Hal Sutton, Davis Love III, Kenny Perry, Tom Lehman and David Toms.

Stricker, 46, has 12 PGA wins.

Readers Feedback:

This is a quick heads-up so that everyone is aware that we are no lonegr saving Sept. 14th for our annual golf tournament. It will have to be at another location after their aeration schedule allows. The short explanation is that Legion Golf Course, or more specifically Premier Management Company, wanted more than $65 from each golfer. Premier now requires shotgun golf tournaments to all rent golf carts, and added shotgun tournament fee, etc. We are trying to be good managers of your dollars, and are in the process of finding a suitable course. The tournament is still happening, but we are working out the kinks of a later date.Stay tuned. Sorry for any inconvenience.Sincerely,Frank
