Golf legend recognized for lifetime contribution

9.00am 4th June 2004 - People

Jack Nicklaus, one of golf’s most influential forces on and off the course, has been selected to receive the 2005 Old Tom Morris Award from the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA). The award will be presented at the GCSAA 2005 Golf Industry Show in Orlando next February.
The Old Tom Morris Award, GCSAA’s most prestigious honour, is presented each year to an individual who “through a continuing lifetime commitment to the game of golf has helped to mould the welfare of the game in a manner and style exemplified by Old Tom Morris.” Morris (1821-1908) was greenkeeper and golf professional at the St. Andrews Links Trust Golf Club; a four-time winner of The Open (1861, ‘62, ‘64 and ‘67); and ranked as one of the top links designers of the 19th century.
“Jack Nicklaus truly embodies the spirit of the award,” said GCSAA president Mark J. Woodward. “Few, if any, rival his lifetime contributions to the game. He has touched nearly every aspect of the game, and has done so with the utmost class, integrity and excellence.”
The Golf Industry Show debuts 10-12 February 2005 in Orlando as the merged trade show of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America and the National Golf Course Owners Association,.
