Jay Mon­a­han has been ap­pointed as the new com­mis­sioner of the PGA Tour fol­low­ing Tim Finchem’s re­tire­ment. Finchem will step down from his role af­ter 22 years, hav­ing first taken up the of­fice in June 1994, with Mon­a­han tak­ing over from Jan­uary 1, 2017. The change in roles was ap­proved at the tour’s board meet­ing in Florida on Mon­day. Mon­a­han, who is the cur­rent deputy com­mis­sioner and chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer, told pga­tour.com: “I am greatly hon­oured by the trust the pol­icy board has shown in me to suc­ceed Tim Finchem as com­mis­sioner. “Un­der Tim’s lead­er­ship, the PGA Tour has made re­mark­able progress, even in the most dif­fi­cult eco­nomic times. We are now en­ter­ing a very im­por­tant time in our or­gan­i­sa­tion’s his­tory, and I know our ex­ec­u­tive team will draw upon and be in­spired by the in­valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence of work­ing with Tim on the Tour.”
