Congratulations Rob

December 16th, 2015

We congratulate Robert Maxfield on his appointment as Deputy Chief Executive of The Professional Golfers’ Association with effect from 1st January 2016.

From that date Rob will work directly alongside current Chief Executive Sandy Jones to maintain the smooth day to day running of the Association.

He will become Chief Executive when Sandy steps down from his current post after the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine, with the precise date to be finalised.

With these arrangements in place David Murchie, Chairman of the PGA, and his Board will have achieved a seamless transition to their next Chief Executive – not always an easy task.
