He was one of the greatest teaching professionals of all time, and Harvey Penick’s Little Red Book became the best-selling golf book ever published. As an ardent admirer of Mr. Penick, as he was known to many, the USGTF has established a new award, the Harvey Penick Trophy For Excellence In Golf Teaching. The award will be presented during the closing banquet at the United States Golf Teachers Cup Tuesday evening, October 8, in Tunica Resorts, Mississippi (for more information on the US Cup, please visit www.UnitedStatesGolfTeachersCup.com).
Nominations for the Harvey Penick Trophy will be accepted at the USGTF National Office until Friday, August 30, 5:00 p.m. EDT. USGTF members may nominate any USGTF member in good standing, including themselves. The recipient of the trophy will be based on service to the golfing public, integrity, and golf teaching accomplishments. Please forward a letter of nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org. The recipient will be chosen by the USGTF Technical Committee, whose decision shall be final.
