Ernie ElsErnie Els is the recipient of the Payne Stewart Award, annually rewarded by the PGA Tour and Southern Company to a professional player who “best exemplifies Stewart’s steadfast values of character, charity and sportsmanship.”

Els’ philanthropic endeavours include improving the lives of those with autism spectrum disorder as well as development of junior golf talent in South Africa.

“It’s an unbelievable honour,” Els said when the announcement was made. “It’s very easy for us to start giving back, because the PGA Tour is a very charitable organisation. We learn quickly what charity is all about. And stuff that is dear to our heart, we
want to make better.”
