Rankin awarded Patty Berg Award

Two-time USA Solheim Cup team captain Judy Rankin has been awarded the prestigious Patty Berg Award for 1999.

The award, set up in 1979 by the LPGA board of directors, honours LPGA founder Berg.

Rankin, a 26-time winner on the LPGA Tour, said: "It means the world to me to win this award. Patty was the first woman professional golfer I met as a child so it is very important to me."
