The Findlay Area Golf Association presents its annual male and female "Player of the Year Award" in the name of Dr. Charles "Doc" Spragg. This award is named after our founder and long-time President of the Findlay Area Golf Association. Doc was a tireless individual who not only promoted the FAGA over many years, but also spent countless hours devoted to this fine organization. He was an individual that stood out as a person and mentor to our junior golfers.

Doc’s contributions to junior golf are immeasurable and we owe much of our organization’s success to him. He passed away, at the age of 76, on March 27, 2017 and continues to be missed by his many friends.

As an amateur golfer, Doc had a rewarding and distinguished career:

Just as Doc Spragg, the recipient of this award not only has fine playing abilities, but more important, they must display those qualities of fair play, honesty, respect for fellow competitors, sportsmanship and dedication. This award signifies the hours of practice and self-discipline that is required to be the best of a group of participants. It allows FAGA to thank the winner for being a good example to their peers and for providing the proper role model for the other players in the FAGA program.
