Jaime Diaz receives PGA Lifetime Award

Golf Digest senior writer Jaime Diaz has been named the recipient of the 2012 PGA Lifetime Achievement Award in Journalism.

"Jaime Diaz has a gift in providing us with many of the finest, thought-provoking profiles of our industry," said PGA of America President Allen Wronowski.

"We may think that we know all that there is to know about golf's top performers, until Jaime opens another door that causes us to pause and reflect upon the demands of this wonderful game. For Jaime's limitless passion for golf, for his talent to call our attention to the story-behind-the-story that is a great service to golf, we are very proud to present him this award."

Diaz is the 23rd recipient of the PGA Lifetime Achievement Award in Journalism. Beginning with the 1985 U.S. Open, Diaz has covered more than 100 major championships.

He has been awarded first place six times in the Golf Writers Association of America’s Annual Writing Contest.

"I am extremely honored and very humbled, because I've had a lot of help," said Diaz. "I've probably been the luckiest golf writer in terms of where I've had the opportunity to work and who I've worked with.

 I've been especially fortunate at Golf Digest, where Jerry Tarde and his fellow editors are so supportive in allowing me to write in-depth articles about the important figures and issues in the game."
