She was presented with a medal at today’s press conference by Royal Birkdale Captain, Jonathan Seal.

Dame Laura Jane Davies, is an English professional golfer who has achieved the status of her nation’s most accomplished female golfer of modern times, being the first non-American to finish at the top of the LPGA money list as well as winning the LET Order of Merit a record seven times: in 1985, 1986, 1992, 1996, 1999, 2004 and 2006.

As of 2012, she has 84 professional wins worldwide, with 20 on the LPGA, including four majors and, since turning professional in 1985, has won at least one individual title somewhere in the world every season, except for 2005 and 2011, though she was a member of the winning Solheim Cup team in 2011.

She is a member of U.S.-based LPGA Tour, a life member of the Ladies European Tour, and needs only one major victory or two regular LPGA Tour wins to enter the World Golf Hall of Fame.
