Trevor Immelman has been awarded Honorary Life Membership of the European Tour in acknowledgment of his US Masters triumph at Augusta in April.
Keith Waters, Director of International Policy for The European Tour, presented the South African with the Honorary Life Membership ahead of the South African Open.
“I actually have goosebumps just thinking about this,” said Immelman. “It's a cliché, but it's a dream come true to become an Honorary Life Member of The European Tour.
“I grew up here in South Africa watching professional golf, watching The European Tour, listening to Renton Laidlaw commentate about Seve and Sandy Lyle and Ian Woosnam and all those guys.
“So for me to join them and become an Honorary Life Member of The European Tour is something that's just extremely special for me and that I will cherish for the rest of my life.”
Including Immelman, there are now four South African players who hold Honorary Life Membership of The European Tour – the other Major winners Gary Player, Ernie Els and Retief Goosen.
Immelman, Goosen and Els are all competing in this weekend’s South African Open – and Els opened with 65.
