Dave Soutar Earns Senior Tour’s Dick Weber Sportsmanship Award
Hall of Famer Dave Soutar, who retired after more than 50 years of competing on the PBA Tour and Senior Tour, was voted the winner of the Senior Tour’s Dick Weber Sportsmanship Award.
In a career that started in 1961, Soutar won 18 titles on the PBA Tour and seven on the Senior Tour and becomes the first player to win sportsmanship awards from both Tours. He earned the PBA Tour’s Steve Nagy Sportsmanship Award winner in 1970.
“I’ve always respected my competitors and felt that if someone beat me they bowled better than I did and they did the job they were supposed to do,” said the 72-year-old Soutar, who bowled in a record 259 Senior Tour tournaments. “I’ve always been pretty low key. If I got beat or wasn’t bowling well I usually directed my anger at myself and not my opponents.”
