Another accolade in a career spanning over 25 years, Parry was honoured alongside AFL Legend Tony Lockett, Paralympics champion Amy Winters, Australia II crew member Colin Beashel and boxer Kostya Tszyu.
Since turning Professional in 1985, Parry has earned 23 career victories, including two PGA TOUR titles.
