The United States Golf Association (USGA) has named Mike Davis as the organization’s new executive director. Davis becomes the seventh executive director in the 116-year history of the Association, after serving as senior director of Rules and Competitions since 2005.

Davis succeeds David Fay, who retired on Dec. 31, 2010, after holding the position for 21 years, concluding a 32-year tenure with the USGA.

"I am humbled and extremely grateful to the United States Golf Association for the trust and confidence it has placed in me as the executive director,” said Davis, who assumes his new responsibilities effective immediately. “I am passionate about the USGA and its mission. The work of the Association is done by thousands of volunteers and hundreds of staff, whose collective efforts truly help better the game that so many of us love.”

Davis, 46, joined the USGA in April 1990 as assistant manager of Championship Relations. He was promoted to manager of Championship Relations in December 1990 and served in that capacity until his promotion to director of Championship Relations in October 1995. In 1997, he was promoted to U.S. Open Championship Director, responsible for managing the day-to-day organizational activities for the U.S. Open. He assumed responsibilities as senior director of Rules and Competitions in 2005.

In 2005, the USGA and AJGA began their partnership and unveiled an initiative aimed at the overall growth and development of junior golfers. By emphasizing the importance of community service and education, the partnership strives to enrich the lives of junior golfers and ensure there is a high level of volunteerism around the game for many years to come.

The AJGA’s Leadership Links program and the USGA-AJGA Presidents’ Leadership Award provide AJGA members community service opportunities, which breed character and leadership development through golf. The education component serves as a vehicle for teaching AJGA members about the Rules of Golf, Amateur Status and etiquette. To further develop the future leaders of golf, the USGA annually funds intern positions with the AJGA through the highly successful USGA P.J. Boatwright, Jr. Internship Program. These components have helped strengthen the AJGA and its mission to develop golf’s next generation.

In 2010, Davis became a hands-on mentor for the AJGA Operations Department. Davis spent a day at AJGA Headquarters and shared his invaluable perspective and insights on tournament administration and golf course set-up with the AJGA’s tournament directors.
