Updated: October 1, 2013

Peter Jacobsen, known for his passion and personality throughout his 37-year PGA Tour and Champions Tour careers, has been named the 2013 winner of the Payne Stewart Award.

The Payne Stewart Award is presented annually to a professional golfer who best exemplifies the values of character, charity and sportsmanship.

The past winners have all distinguished themselves through their respect for the game, the Tour’s tradition of charity and their ability to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

Stewart, an 11-time winner on the PGA Tour and World Golf Hall of Fame member, died tragically the week of the Tour Championship by Coca-Cola in 1999.
