Jerry Cole Sportsmanship Award Nominations Sought


The Jerry Cole Sportsmanship Award is presented annually to an AJGA golfer who displays integrity and respect for the game. Golf is a game rich in tradition and the AJGA believes it is important to promote honor and sportsmanship among golf’s next generation.

Is there an AJGA golfer who you would like to nominate for the Jerry Cole Sportsmanship Award? Past recipients of the award have displayed sportsmanlike behavior on the golf course and in life. This can be seen in the way they overcome adversity, serve their communities, live their lives with integrity, and impact others with their positive attitudes.

Last year’s recipient, MacKinzie Kline of Encinitas, Calif., represented all these ideals. Kline is an ambassador of the game of golf and for the Children’s Heart Foundation. Born with a severe congenital heart defect, Kline found that golf was one of the few sports she could play. She has not only played, but excelled. In addition, she has raised more than $1 million for research at the Children’s Heart Foundation. For the positive effect she has had on so many others around the world, Kline was given the 2007 Jerry Cole Sportsmanship Award.

In an effort to promote the ideals of golf, the AJGA wishes to honor another deserving individual in 2008. To submit a nomination, please send the following information to award@ajga.org (the deadline for nominations has been extended to Sept. 18):

  • Name and hometown of nominee
  • Detailed explanation supporting your nomination
  • Your name and contact number

The recipient will be honored at the Rolex Junior All-America Banquet November 23 at Ginn Reunion Resort. The player will also be invited to participate in the Polo Golf Junior Classic, November 22-28.

Past recipients include Jonathan Moore, Jennifer Tangtiphaiboontana, Virada Nirapathpongporn and Jason Gore.
