Jordan Spieth has become a new member of the PGA Tour Board. Rory McIlroy has held the same position for several months. However, he decided that it was time to dedicate himself to golf as much as possible, and ignore other obligations.
The only reasonable decision was to resign. Jordan Spieth is an experienced golfer who many expect to make important decisions and be one of the main ambassadors of the PGA Tour. DP World Tour golfer Pablo Larrazabal is one of the first to react via social media.
Pablo is not happy with certain differences between the DP World Tour and the PGA Tour. He immediately called on Jordan Spieth to urge and make changes in the future. "The PGA Tour gives away 100 Million to the Players Impact Program (PIP), 3 times more than the money that they pay to the DP World Tour for all year," -Pablo Larrazabal wrote on X.
"Well, I hope that Jordan Spieth (new chairman of the PGA players board) makes the DP World Tour great again."
Jay Monahan reacted
Jay Monahan, PGA Tour Commissioner, is happy to have Spieth on the Board. They had to think hard about who could succeed Rory McIlroy.
Spieth proved to be the best option. “With Rory McIlroy resigning from the PGA Tour Policy Board last week, per the PGA Tour Tournament Regulations, the five remaining Player Directors have elected Jordan Spieth to serve the remainder of Rory’s term which expires at the end of 2024."- Jay Monahan wrote on social media.
The fact that Spieth has the experience of holding similar functions is certainly optimistic information. We will see how much Spieth can really do and whether he will be the initiator of certain decisions. “Jordan has extensive experience with the Tour’s governance process, having served two years on the Player Advisory Council (2017-18) including PAC Chairman in 2018 and three years (2019-21) as a Player Director."- he concluded.
