US PGA creates an award for China

THE US PGA continued its courtship of Chinese golf yesterday by creating an award to recognise "outstanding contributions" to the growth of the sport in the world's most populous country.

The award is named after the developer of the 12-course Mission Hills golf complex in Shenzhen, David Chu, who was also the first recipient of the bronze medal which bears his likeness. "Doctor Chu's legacy is one of a pioneer, visionary and philanthropist," said US PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem, who presented the award. "Thanks to his efforts, Mission Hills has provided a platform for golf in China to take root, grow and flourish - the effects of which are certain to exceed all expectations in the years to come." Chu was behind Tiger Woods's first visit to China in 2001.
