16. DISPUTE RESOLUTION (INCLUDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT; JURY TRIAL WAIVER; CLASS ACTION WAIVER)Please read this this Section 16 carefully. It affects Your legal rights. It provides for resolution of most disputes between You and the PGA TOUR Parties through individual arbitration instead of court trials and class actions. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court, uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and discovery is more limited. Arbitration is final and binding and subject to only very limited review by a court. This Section 16 also contains a jury trial waiver and a waiver of any and all rights to proceed in a class, collective, consolidated, private attorney general, or representative action in arbitration or litigation to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.

Arbitration Agreement.

(A) Binding Individual Arbitration. Any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use, Your use of PGATOUR.COM, or Your relationship with the PGA TOUR Parties, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, including claims for mental or emotional distress or injury not arising out of physical bodily injury (“Dispute”), will be resolved through binding individual arbitration, except that either You or the PGA TOUR Parties may elect to have a Dispute heard in small claims court so long as it is not removed or appealed to a court of general jurisdiction. Whether a Dispute falls within the jurisdictional limits of small claims court is for the small claims court to decide in the first instance unless You and the PGA TOUR Parties agree otherwise. Dispute shall be interpreted broadly and include, but not be limited to: (1) any dispute or claim that arose before the existence of these or any prior Terms of Use (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising); (2) any dispute or claim that is currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which You are not a member of a certified class; and (3) any dispute or claim that may arise after termination of these Terms of Use. Dispute, however, does not include disagreements or claims concerning patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets and claims of piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property and claims arising out of physical bodily injury. The arbitrator shall decide all issues except the following, which are for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide: (1) issues that are reserved for a court in these Terms of Use; (2) issues that relate to the scope, validity, and enforceability of the arbitration agreement, class action waiver, jury trial waiver, or any of the provisions of this Section 16; and (3) issues that relate to the arbitrability of any Dispute. These Terms of Use and this arbitration agreement do not prevent You from bringing a Dispute to the attention of any government agency. You and the PGA TOUR Parties agree that these Terms of Use evidence a transaction in interstate commerce and that this arbitration agreement will be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law (not state arbitration law).

(B)Mandatory Informal Dispute Resolution Process. You and the PGA TOUR Parties agree to the following informal dispute resolution process before You or the PGA TOUR Parties may initiate arbitration. In the event of any Dispute that arises between You and the PGA Tour Parties, the party asserting the Dispute shall first send written notice to the other party (by first class or registered mail) that includes all of the following information: (1) contact information (including name, address, email address, and telephone number); (2) a detailed description of the nature and basis of the Dispute and any claims being asserted; and (3) a detailed description of the relief sought, including a calculation for it. The notice must be personally signed by the party asserting the Dispute (and Your or our counsel, if represented). Your notice must be sent to: PGA TOUR, Attn: Legal, 1 PGA TOUR Boulevard, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32082. If the PGA TOUR Parties have a Dispute with You, notice will be sent to the most recent contact information we have for You.

For a period of 60 days from receipt of a completed notice (which can be extended by agreement of the parties), You and the PGA TOUR Parties agree to negotiate in good faith in an effort to informally resolve the Dispute. The party receiving the notice may request a telephone settlement conference to aid in the resolution of the Dispute. If such a conference is requested, You and the PGA TOUR Parties representative will personally attend (with counsel, if represented). The conference will be scheduled for a mutually convenient time, which may be outside of the 60-day period. Completion of this Mandatory Informal Dispute Resolution Process (“Process”) is a condition precedent to initiating arbitration. If the sufficiency of a notice or compliance with this Process is at issue, such issue may be raised with and decided by a court of competent jurisdiction at either party’s election, and any arbitration shall be stayed. The court shall have the authority to enforce this condition precedent to arbitration, which includes the power to enjoin the filing or prosecution of arbitrations and the assessment or collection of arbitration fees. Nothing in this paragraph limits the right of a party to seek damages for non-compliance with this Process in arbitration with a Process Arbitrator or merits arbitrator. All applicable limitations periods (including statutes of limitations) shall be tolled from the date of receipt of a completed notice through the conclusion of this Process. You or the PGA TOUR Parties may commence arbitration only if the Dispute is not resolved through this Process.

(C) Arbitration Procedures. The arbitration of any Dispute shall be administered by and conducted in accordance with the applicable rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (where appropriate) (“AAA Rules”), as modified by this arbitration agreement. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org. Each party has the right to challenge the application of the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules in connection with a Dispute as a threshold administrative issue. You and the PGA TOUR Parties understand and agree that the AAA’s administrative determination to register this arbitration agreement means it comports with the Consumer Due Process Protocols and that this determination is final and neither a court nor an arbitrator has the authority to revisit it. If the AAA is unavailable or unwilling to administer the arbitration consistent with this arbitration agreement, the parties shall agree on an administrator that will do so. If the parties cannot agree, they shall petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint an administrator that will do so. An arbitration demand must be accompanied by a certification of compliance with the Process and be personally signed by the party initiating arbitration (and counsel, if represented). If You are submitting an arbitration demand, You shall send it to: PGA TOUR, Attn: Legal, 1 PGA TOUR Boulevard, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32082 and follow the AAA Rules for initiating arbitration. If the PGA TOUR Parties are submitting an arbitration demand, the demand will be sent to the most recent contact information on file for You and follow the AAA Rules for initiating arbitration. By submitting an arbitration demand, the party and counsel represent that, as in court, they are complying with the requirements of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b). The arbitrator is authorized to impose any sanctions available under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11 on represented parties and their counsel. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by a phone, video, or in-person hearing, or through written submissions, except any Dispute seeking $10,000 or more or injunctive relief shall have an in-person or video hearing unless the parties agree otherwise. You and the PGA TOUR Parties reserve the right to request a hearing in any matter from the arbitrator. You and a PGA TOUR Parties representative will personally appear at any hearing (with counsel, if represented). Any in-person hearing will be held in the county or parish in which You reside or at another mutually agreed location. An arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available in a court, including injunctive or declaratory relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, You and the PGA TOUR Parties agree that each may bring claims against the other only in Your or our individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, consolidated, private attorney general, or representative proceeding. Further, unless both You and the PGA TOUR Parties agree otherwise, an arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of class, collective, consolidated, private attorney general, or representative proceeding. An arbitrator must follow and enforce these Terms of Use as a court would. If, after exhaustion of all appeals, any of these prohibitions on non-individualized injunctive or declaratory relief and class, collective, consolidated, private attorney general, or representative proceedings are found to be unenforceable with respect to a particular claim or request for relief (such as a request for public injunctive relief), then such a claim or request for relief will be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction, after all other claims and requests for relief are arbitrated. The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain essential findings and conclusions. The arbitrator shall apply the cost-shifting provisions of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 68 after entry of an award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction, except an award that has been satisfied may not be entered. An award shall have no preclusive effect in any other arbitration or proceeding to which You are not a party. Arbitration may be requested at any time, even where there is a pending lawsuit, unless a trial has begun, or a final judgment entered.

(E) Additional Procedures for Mass Arbitration. You and the PGA TOUR Parties agree that these Additional Procedures for Mass Arbitration (in addition to the other provisions of this arbitration agreement) shall apply if You choose to participate in a mass arbitration. If 25 or more similar Disputes (including Yours) are asserted against the PGA TOUR Parties by the same or coordinated counsel or are otherwise coordinated (“Mass Arbitration”), You understand and agree that the resolution of Your Dispute might be delayed and ultimately proceed in court. The parties agree that as part of these procedures, their counsel shall meet and confer in good faith in an effort to resolve the Disputes, streamline procedures, address the exchange of information, modify the number of Disputes to be adjudicated, and conserve the parties’ and the AAA’s resources. If Your claim is part of a Mass Arbitration, any applicable limitations periods (including statutes of limitations) shall be tolled for Your Dispute from the time that Your Dispute is first submitted to the AAA until Your Dispute is selected to proceed as part of a staged process or is settled, withdrawn, otherwise resolved, or opted out of arbitration pursuant to this provision.

· STAGE ONE: If at least 50 Disputes are submitted as part of the Mass Arbitration, counsel for the claimants and counsel for the PGA TOUR Parties shall each select 25 Disputes to be filed and to proceed as cases in individual arbitrations as part of this initial staged process. The number of Disputes to be selected to proceed in Stage One can be increased by agreement of counsel for the parties (and if there are fewer than 50 Disputes, all shall proceed individually in Stage One). Each of the 50 (or fewer) cases shall be assigned to a different arbitrator and proceed individually. If a case is withdrawn before the issuance of an arbitration award, another claim shall be selected to proceed as part of Stage One. The remaining Disputes shall not be filed or deemed filed in arbitration nor shall any arbitration fees be assessed or collected in connection with those claims. After this initial set of proceedings, counsel for the parties shall participate in a global mediation session with a mutually acceptable mediator in an effort to resolve the remaining Disputes (as informed by the adjudications of cases in Stage One), and the PGA TOUR Parties shall pay the mediator’s fee.

· STAGE TWO: If the remaining Disputes have not been resolved at the conclusion of Stage One, counsel for the claimants and counsel for the PGA TOUR Parties shall each select 25 Disputes per side to be filed and to proceed as cases in individual arbitrations as part of a second staged process. The number of Disputes to be selected to proceed as part of this second staged process can be increased by agreement of counsel for the parties (and if there are fewer than 50 Disputes, all shall proceed individually in Stage Two). No more than three cases may be assigned to a single arbitrator to proceed individually. If a case is withdrawn before the issuance of an arbitration award, another claim shall be selected to proceed as part of Stage Two. The remaining Disputes shall not be filed or deemed filed in arbitration nor shall any arbitration fees be assessed or collected in connection with those claims. After this second set of staged proceedings, the parties shall engage in a global mediation session of all remaining Disputes with mutually acceptable mediator in an effort to resolve the remaining Disputes (as informed by the adjudications of cases in Stages One and Two), and the PGA TOUR Parties shall pay the mediator’s fee.

Upon the completion of the mediation set forth in Stage Two, each remaining Dispute (if any) that is not settled or not withdrawn shall be opted out of arbitration and may proceed in a court of competent jurisdiction consistent with the remainder of these Terms of Use. Notwithstanding the foregoing, counsel for the parties may mutually agree in writing to proceed with the adjudication of some or all of the remaining Disputes in individual arbitrations consistent with the process set forth in Stage Two (except Disputes shall be randomly selected and mediation shall be elective by agreement of counsel) or through another mutually agreeable process. A court of competent jurisdiction shall have the authority to enforce these Additional Procedures for Mass Arbitration, including the power to enjoin the filing or prosecution of arbitrations and the assessment or collection of arbitration fees. These Additional Procedures for Mass Arbitration and each of the requirements are essential parts of this arbitration agreement. If, after exhaustion of all appeals, a court of competent jurisdiction decides that these Additional Procedures for Mass Arbitration apply to Your Dispute and are not enforceable, then Your Dispute shall not proceed in arbitration and shall only proceed in a court of competent jurisdiction consistent with the remainder of these Terms of Use.

(F) Future Changes to Arbitration Agreement. If we make any future changes to this arbitration agreement (other than a change to the contact information for the PGA TOUR Parties), You may reject any such change by sending Your personally signed, written notice to the following address within 30 days of the change: PGA TOUR, Attn: Legal, 1 PGA TOUR Boulevard, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32082 with a clear statement that You wish to opt out of changes to the arbitration agreement. Such written notice does not constitute an opt out of arbitration altogether. By rejecting any future change, You are agreeing that You will arbitrate any Dispute between You and the PGA TOUR Parties in accordance with this version of the arbitration agreement.

Class Action Waiver; Jury Trial Waiver.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AND THE PGA TOUR PARTIES WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.
