Jim Nantz to receive 2021 Old Tom Morris Award

By |  November 9, 2020 0 Comments

Jim Nantz, a three-time Emmy winner and lead anchor of CBS’s golf coverage, will be the recipient of the 2021 Old Tom Morris Award from GCSAA. The organization will present the award live on Feb. 2, 2021, during the Opening Session of the virtual 2021 Golf Industry Show.

“(The Old Tom Morris Award) is a big one,”  Nantz said. “I treasure the relationship that I have with many superintendents around the country, and I value their efforts so much. They work so hard and they don’t get the acclaim I feel they deserve. They’re so incredibly well educated and trained on all issues involving agronomy. It’s been an eye-opener for me the last 35 years.”

The award presentation and Opening Session will be part of the interactive and engaging events during the Feb. 2-4 virtual event or watch it later as part of the extended show access.
