Justin Rose named 24th recipient of PGA Tour’s Payne Stewart Award

Justin Rose has been named the 24th recipient of the Payne Stewart Award, given annually to the PGA Tour player who best exemplifies Stewart’s examples of character, charity and sportsmanship.

Stewart, a World Golf Hall of Fame member who won 11 Tour titles and three majors, died in a plane crash in 1999.

“I am truly humbled and honored to be associated with the enduring legacy of Payne Stewart through this award,” Rose said in a statement. “The Payne Stewart Award has become an annual celebration of Payne’s impact on the PGA Tour and its players. I am forever grateful to be connected to a man who was the consummate professional on and off the golf course and will cherish being a Payne Stewart Award recipient well after my playing days are over.”

Rose, who was born in South Africa and has British citizenship, has a family foundation he began with his wife Kate that has benefited charities in the U.S., England, South Africa and the Bahamas.

“Justin Rose embodies everything the Payne Stewart Award represents,” said PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan in a statement. “Like Payne, he has been one of the premier players of his generation while using his platform to better the lives of those around him.
