USGA chief business officer Pete Bevacqua has resigned from his post, according to a Golf Channel report. Bevacqua's resignation follows the ascension of Mike Davis to USGA executive director last month. Former executive director David Fay announced his own resignation last December.
Bevacqua was 35 when he was named chief business officer for the USGA in July 2007 after serving the organization as in-house corporate counsel and managing director of the U.S. Open Championships. As chief business officer, he oversaw revenue-producing activities for the USGA, including marketing deals with American Express and Lexus.
The USGA is the governing body for golf in the United States and Mexico and holds 13 national tournaments, including the U.S. Open, the U.S. Amateur, the U.S. Women's Open and the U.S. Senior Open.
