World’s #1 Golfer Dustin Johnson named the monthly Hickok Belt® Award winner for second time in 2020

ROCHESTER, NY – Dustin Johnson has been selected as the Hickok Belt® Award winner for the month of November – marking the second time he was selected for the award this year. Voting was conducted by a select panel of members of the National Sports Media Association (NSMA). The voters selected Johnson based on his first Masters victory on November 15th. The Masters is the world’s most sought-after golf title. This major golf tournament was Johnson’s 24th official victory on the PGA Tour. He won by five strokes over his closest competitor. His 20 under par total of 268 was the lowest score by any golfer in the history of the Masters.

Other finalists for the month of November in order of how the NSMA ranked them were: Patrick Mahomes (football), Derrick Henry (football), Chase Elliott (auto racing), Rafael Nadal (tennis), Authentic (John Velazquez aboard - horse racing), Jason Pierre-Paul (football), Travis Kelce (football), Sei Young Kim (golf) and Gervonta Davis (boxing).

Johnson’s selection as the Hickok Belt® Award winner for November 2020 recognizes him as “the best of the best” in professional sports for the second time this year and makes him a strong candidate to receive the 2020 overall award. Johnson joins other 2020 monthly winners LeBron James, Bryson DeChambeau, Donovan Mitchell, Jon Rahm, Tyson Fury and Patrick Mahomes as contenders for the overall 2020 Hickok Belt® Award.
