Three men who masterminded Europe's triumph over the US in last year's Ryder Cup have been recognised in the Queen's birthday honours.
Leading player Lee Westwood will be heading to the palace alongside Rob Holt and Jim McKenzie.
Former world number one Westwood will be honoured with an OBE for his service to the sport over almost 25 years and for his part in the most recent Ryder Cup triumph.
Holt and McKenzie will receive an OBE and MBE respectively for their efforts in ensuring the course was ready to host the event and for the dedication to keeping the clash on track following torrential rain in Wales.
The Ryder Cup was extended into an extra day but it was down to the work of Holt, McKenzie and their respective teams in keeping the matches against the US bubbling to an exciting climax.
"It was a huge surprise when I found out I'd been awarded this honour," McKenzie revealed.
"I have managed to keep it a secret up until now though."
