GOLFERS WHO GIVE BACK JIM NANTZ, DARIUS RUCKER AND DAVIS LOVE III CONTINUE THE PALMER TRADITION
▶ If you want to feel good about golf and what the sport does for others, you’ve come to the right place. For the seventh year, Golf Digest is celebrating Golfers Who Give Back, partnering with the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and Monterey Peninsula Foundation. ▶ Our joint committee has selected country-music star Darius Rucker, CBS Sports commentator Jim Nantz and World Golf Hall of Famer Davis Love III as this year’s Golfers Who Give Back.
▶ No individual golfer gave back more than Arnold Palmer, and each of these three honorees will receive The Arnie Award, Golf Digest’s highest honour, at the AT&T in February. The Arnie is a trophy-size version of a Palmer bronze sculpture created by artist Zenos Frudakis. As part of the Golfers Who Give Back program, Golf Digest will donate a total of $100,000 to Monterey Peninsula Foundation and Arnie’s Army Charitable Foundation. ▶
