Seve Ballesteros receives Recognition Award

Five-times major champion Seve Ballesteros won the PGA Recognition Award on Friday for his outstanding contribution to golf.

"We always recognise greatness but in life we get very few occasions to recognise genius and Seve is simply a golfing genius," said chief executive Sandy Jones as he presented the award at the PGA's annual luncheon in London.

"Throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s he lit up world golf with his charisma, skill and flair, winning millions of fans and playing a significant part in making the European Tour what it is today.He also left a lasting impact on the Ryder Cup."

The 49-year-old Spanish maestro, who won three British Opens and two U.S. Masters titles, quashed retirement rumours earlier this month by announcing he would play on next year's U.S. seniors tour.
