PGAs of Europe Board Director Jonathan Mannie has assumed the chairmanship of the Ryder Cup European Development Trust Board (RCEDT), the charitable arm of Ryder Cup Europe.
In taking on the role, Mannie is following in the footsteps of past chairmen Sandy Jones and Mikael Sorling. He will lead the RCEDT Board of Trustees in their work supporting grass roots golf and reinvesting the profits generated by European-based Ryder Cup matches into the growth of the game across the continent.
“I am delighted to be taking on the role of Chairman for the Trust,” said Mannie. “It is a real honour to be able to head up this Board of Trustees, and to play our role in the development of grass roots golf. I have been very lucky to be close to the development of the game across Europe for a number of years, and I am excited by the potential that golf has ahead of it – the RCEDT has a responsibility to support European golf and we look forward to continuing this work into the future.”
