We are proud to award the second annual Scott Hamilton Novice Men Development Award at this year's Scott Hamilton Invitational. Novice Men was a pivotal point in Scott's career and he strongly believes ALL Novice Men (no matter what place they end up) should be honored with their names on a plaque.
"Novice men is where my heart is. The greatest achievement in my career came out of massive underachieving at the Novice Men's level. We celebrate the victors and doubly celebrate those learning from defeat, being strengthened by it & understanding where they need to go!" Scott Hamilton
