“This type of global recognition for amateur excellence at all levels has never been done before,” said Global Golf Post Founder and Publisher Jim Nugent.
As a part of the multi-page feature in the December 2 issue, The Post named winning Walker Cup Captain Jim Holtgrieve and U.S. Senior Amateur Champion Ellen Port as its inaugural Amateurs of the Year in America.
“Jim and Ellen are tremendous choices for our first annual awards,” commented Jim Nugent, Founder and Publisher of Global Golf Post. “They exemplify all that is important in the global amateur game today, on and off the course.”
Holtgrieve led the 2013 U.S. Walker Cup team to a decisive 17-9 victory over the Great Britain and Ireland Team at the National Golf Links of America in September. In his four-year run as Captain of the American squad, Holtgrieve was a passionate advocate for the amateur game and the importance of playing for one’s country.
Port successfully defended her 2012 U.S. Senior Amateur time, winning for the second time at CordeValle. She is one of the most decorated women in amateur golf, winning six USGA titles. Fittingly, she will captain the 2014 U.S. Curtis Cup team that will challenge Great Britain & Ireland in her hometown of St. Louis in June, 2014.
