Open champion Darren Clarke will receive the PGA Recognition Award at this December's annual PGA Luncheon in London.

The 43-year-old, unable to collect the award at the end of last season, follows in the footsteps of other Claret Jug winners Sir Nick Faldo, Tony Jacklin and the late Seve Ballesteros.

"We had considered Darren for this award long before his Open triumph because he had already made an immense contribution to golf," said PGA chief executive Sandy Jones.

"His outstanding success in becoming Open champion meant his commitments prevented him from collecting the award last December, but we look forward to welcoming him as guest of honour at the lunch."
