The PGA Tour has announced the election of Jordan Spieth as Chairman of the Player Advisory Council (PAC) by the Tour’s membership for the 2018 calendar year.

The 16-member PAC advises and consults with the PGA Tour Policy Board (Board of Directors) and Commissioner Jay Monahan on issues affecting the Tour.

Spieth, who prevailed over Billy Hurley III for PAC Chairman, will succeed Davis Love III (2016-18) on the PGA TOUR Policy Board next year. He will serve a three-year term (2019-2021) as Player Director along with Charley Hoffman (2017-2019), Kevin Streelman (2017-19) and Johnson Wagner (2018-2020).

“Having a player with Jordan’s pedigree and perspective will be a tremendous addition to the PAC this year and the Policy Board starting in 2019,” said Monahan. “We certainly looked at this as a win-win for the Tour, as both Jordan and Billy were excellent candidates and both will make significant contributions to the Tour in helping to shape policy.”

The 24-year-old Spieth is an 11-time winner on the PGA Tour and captured the 2015 FedExCup title. Last year, the Dallas native won three times and advanced to the season-ending Tour Championship for the fifth time in as many attempts, finishing the season No. 2 in the FedExCup standings. A member of three U.S. Presidents Cup Teams (2013, 2015, 2017), Spieth played collegiately at the University of Texas.
