The PAC advises and consults with the PGA Tour Policy Board of directors and PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan on issues affecting the Tour.
Rory McIlroy was on the board but he chose to step down at the end of 2023 in order to better focus on his game and to spend more time with his family outside the ropes.
Monahan recently sent an email to players stating the five remaining player directors had elected Spieth to serve the remainder of McIlroy’s term, which expires at the end of 2024.
Spieth, 30, previously served two years on the Tour’s Player Advisory Council in 2017 and 2018 and was PAC Chairman in 2018.
He was then a player director from 2019-2021.
In a press release sent out by the Tour on 28 January 2024, the circuit confirmed its 16 players on the PAC for 2024.
This season will likely prove the most important year to be apart of the PGA Tour PAC as a result of the pending framework agreement between the circuit and the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF).
Here are the players in alphabetical order:
- Sam Burns
- Lanto Griffin
- Nick Hardy
- Brian Harman
- Max Homa
- Mackenzie Hughes
- Keith Mitchell
- Grayson Murray
- Seamus Power
- Scottie Scheffler
- Adam Schenk
- Kevin Streelman
- Nick Taylor
- Josh Teater
- Justin Thomas
- Camilo Villegas
Voting will end on 27 February and the winner will replace Spieth and serve for three years starting on 1 January 2025.
