One of America's great jewelers and sculptors, Malcolm DeMille, created the AJGA Jerry Cole Sportsmanship Award Trophy.

Jerry Cole Sportsmanship Award

The AJGA strives to impress upon young golfers the importance of respecting fellow competitors and the game of golf. One way to achieve this is the Code of Conduct. Another is the AJGA’s Jerry Cole Sportsmanship Award.

This award has been presented annually since the AJGA's inception in 1978. The Jerry Cole Sportsmanship Award honors one outstanding junior golfer with exemplary integrity and sportsmanship in the game of golf, and off the golf course demonstrates humility, a scholarly focus, philanthropy and character. The award was named for Jerry Cole in 2000, after the AJGA’s longtime friend and board member passed away.

Each year, the Jerry Cole Sportsmanship winner earns entry into the Polo Golf Junior Classic and is honored at the Rolex Junior All-America Awards Banquet.
