Through his work with at-risk children, David Toms is showing that success on the golf course can be leveraged to help those in need.

The Shreveport golf champion and former LSU player won the Payne Stewart Award, given to honor PGA pros who contribute to their communities.

Toms is the second Shreveport pro to win the award. Hal Sutton won in 2007.

In both cases, we applaud their commitments to helping others.
