Stifel Renews Its Sponsorship of the Haskins Award Honoring the Nation's Top
ST. LOUIS, MO -- (Marketwired) -- 09/23/13 -- Stifel Financial Corp.
(NYSE: SF) today announced that it has renewed its sponsorship of
college golf's highest honor, the Haskins Award.
"We're excited to sponsor the 'Heisman Trophy of golf' for a third
straight year," said Ron Kruszewski, Chairman, President, and CEO of
Stifel Financial Corp. "We are honored to partner with an award that
distinguishes a college player's commitment to excellence, a value we
hold high at Stifel."
Now in its 43rd year, the Haskins Award is given to the nation's top
collegiate golfer each season as determined by balloting among NCAA
Division I golfers and golf coaches, national golf media members, and
past Haskins Award winners. Voting is administered by the 14-member
Haskins Commission. The award is named in honor of Fred Haskins,
instructor to dozens of champion golfers and tireless promoter of
amateur golf. Past Haskins Award winners include Ben Crenshaw, Phil
Mickelson, Curtis Strange, and Tiger Woods.
"Our partnership with Stifel has opened many doors and enabled us to
firmly establish the Haskins Award's standing in the world of golf,"
said Haskins Commission President J. Madden Hatcher Jr. "Connecting a
historic honor with high ideals, such as the Haskins Award with a
respected institution like Stifel, has been logical and rewarding. We
look forward to years of growth and excitement as we pay tribute to
young golfers who are talented on the golf course and in life."
