On Tuesday evening in downtown Atlanta, Jim Furyk became the 19th recipient of the PGA Tour's Payne Stewart Award.
The Payne Stewart Award is given to a player whose "values align with the character, charity and sportsmanship that Stewart showed," which includes respect for the traditions of the game, commitment to uphold the game's heritage of charitable support and professional and meticulous presentation of himself and the sport through his dress and conduct.
It would be silly, but if you ever questioned Furyk's popularity amongst his peers, just wait until you see all the players -- past and present -- that filled the room for his presentation.
Players who aren't even in the field for this week's Tour Championship made the trip to watch their friend receive this prestigious award.
And, after watching Furyk's acceptance speech, you can be sure they're delighted they made the trip.
Check out Furyk's remarkable, inspiring speech below, which included this gem just as he started out: "I think I'm going to break the record for the quickest to cry. Stricker is going down tonight!"
