Tiger Woods Joins PGA Tour Policy Board

Golf legend Tiger Woods has joined the PGA Tour Policy board as part of a new transparency and governance measure. 

Woods is the sixth player director on the board, meaning the players now own the majority. 

“I am honored to represent the players of the PGA Tour. This is a critical point for the Tour, and the players will do their best to make certain that any changes that re made in Tour operations are in the best interest of all Tour stakeholders, including fans, sponsors and players,” said Woods in a statement released by the Tour.

He adds, “The players thank Commissioner Monahan for agreeing to address our concerns, and we look forward to being at the table with him to make the right decisions for the future of the game that we all love. He has my confidence moving forward with these changes.” 

The other board members include Patrick Cantlay, Charley Hoffman, Peter Malnati, Rory McIlroy and Webb Simpson. 

“Tiger’s voice and leadership throughout his carer have contributed immeasurably to the success of the PGA Tour, and to apply both to our governance and go-forward plan at this crucial time is even more welcomed and impactful. I am committed to taking the necessary steps to restore any lost trust or confidence that occurred as a result of the surprise announcement of our Framework Agreement. My job in the negotiations – in partnership with our player directors, PAC and the broader membership – is to advocate for what is best for the PGA Tour members today and in the future. Any agreement we reach must be shaped by our members’ input and approval earned through our player directors,” said Commissioner Monahan. 

According to Golf Channel, a player meeting with Monahan is set for next Tuesday at the first playoff event in Memphis.
