Truth & Rumors: Peter Bevacqua to be named PGA of America's CEO

Posted at 12:41 PM by Samantha Glover | Categories: PGA of America, Truth & Rumors

According to Golfweek's Adam Shupack, the search for the next chief executive officer of the PGA of America is over.

Peter Bevacqua, most recently of CAA Sports, has unofficially been offered the position. The decision is expected to be confirmed at the PGA of America's annual meeting in Baltimore this weekend, according to the report.

Prior to his time at CAA, Bevacqua spent more than a decade working for the USGA, acting as in-house corporate counsel, managing director of the U.S. Open Championships and ultimately the organization's chief business officer. In 2009, Bevacqua was among candidates being considered for the role of the next commissioner of the LPGA, according to the Golfweek report.

Bevacqua will replace Joe Steranka, who announced his resignation from the post in April.
