Miller Brady has been named President of PGA TOUR Champions, as he will succeed Greg McLaughlin when he begins his role as the World Golf Foundation Chief Executive Officer & President of The First Tee in early 2019.
“I’m extremely excited and humbled by the opportunity to lead PGA TOUR Champions as President,” Brady said. “Greg has been a great leader and mentor the last several years, and I’m looking forward to building on everything we’ve accomplished.”
Brady grew up in Atlanta and graduated from Georgia Southern University with a Bachelor of Science in Health Science and minor in Business. He began his career in the sports industry in 1996 with Advantage International (now Octagon), and his responsibilities included overseeing BMW’s grassroots golf program and Bank of America’s sponsorship of the PGA TOUR’s West Coast Swing.
After joining the PGA TOUR Corporate Marketing Department in 1999, Brady went on to work with Commissioner Finchem as the Special Assistant to the Commissioner for two years during the development of the FedExCup. He then joined the PGA TOUR Champions staff, and as Senior Vice President & Chief of Operations he oversaw tournament business affairs, operations, competitions and player relations as well as scheduling.
“I’m proud of the growth PGA TOUR Champions continues to make every year,” Brady said. “We’ve built a tournament schedule with great sponsors at world-class golf courses, and tournaments make tremendous impact on their communities with charitable contributions that grow annually.”
The 40th season of PGA TOUR Champions will begin January 17-19 with the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai. In all, the schedule includes 27 tournaments in four countries and 19 states, with total prize money of nearly $58 million.
