Lehman Gains Recognition

The Golf Writers Association of America is to honour Tom Lehman with the 2001 Charles Bartlett Award for his contributions to the betterment of society.

The award will be presented at a banquest on 4 April in Augusta. Where Tom will be in the company of the Ben Hogan Award winner (Robert Allenby) and Players of the Year (Tiger Woods, Karrie Webb and Larry Nelson).

Past winners of the Charles Bartlett Award include Arnold Palmer, Payne Stewart and Scott Hoch.

Lehman, 41, a former British Open champion, is involved in a number of charities and holds an event each year in Minneapolis, raising over $3.5 million in the past six years.

A member of the PGA Tour's policy board, Tom is very committed to his charitable work, to the point where he plays in other charity tournaments for free. He is also involved in a programme called Match Point in Phoenix, which helps troubled children, giving both his money and time.
