Nantz joins the ranks of golf greats such as Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Billy Casper, among others who have received recognition for their contributions to golf in years past.
“It is humbling to receive this honor, which has gone to so many great legends in the game, at such a special occasion named for a man who was a gift to us all,” said Nantz, who now lives at Pebble Beach and was a longtime friend of Jim Langley. “I could not feel more blessed by this.”
