World Golf Hall of Fame member Gary Player, considered by many to
be the greatest international golfer of all time, has been named
the 10th recipient of the PGA TOUR's Lifetime Achievement Award.
Created in 1996, the Lifetime Achievement Award honors individuals
who have made an outstanding contribution to the TOUR over an
extended period of time through their actions on and off the
course. Player joins a distinguished list of past Lifetime
Achievement Award recipients: Gene Sarazen; Byron Nelson; Arnold
Palmer; Sam Snead; Jack Burke Jr.; Pete Dye; Deane Beman; Jack
Nicklaus; and President George H.W. Bush. "This is a great honor,"
Player said. "Golf has allowed me to live a truly blessed life, and
I have tried my best to give something back to the sport. Being
recognized with true gentlemen of the sport like Gene Sarazen,
Byron Nelson and Jack Nicklaus is humbling, and I will continue to
help promote and support this wonderful game until the day I die.
