Honorary OBE awarded to Bernhard Langer

"Her Majesty The Queen is pleased to appoint Bernhard Langer to be an honorary Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) in recognition of his services to Golf."
(via)

British Honours are awarded on merit for exceptional achievement or service to British interests. The Most Excellent order of the British Empire awards founded in 1917 to recognise service by civilians in the First World War. The order now honours civilians and service personnel for public service and other distinctions.

The honour OBE is that of an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. Honorary awards are conferred by The Queen, on the advice of the Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary, on those foreign nationals who have made an important contribution to British interests. They are made throughout the year and are quite distinct from the New Year and Birthday Honours list.
