Monahan approved as new US PGA Tour commissioner


MIAMI: Jay Monahan was appointed the new commissioner of the US PGA Tour on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) by the group’s policy board, taking over on January 1 when current commissioner Tim Finchem retires. Monahan, 47, has been the tour’s deputy commissioner since 2014 and working for the tour in some fashion for the past eight years. Finchem, 69, has served more than 22 years in the job since replacing Deane Beman on June 1, 1994. That same year, Tiger Woods won his first US Amateur crown and served notice of the legendary golf career that would unfold on Finchem’s watch.
