No, this is not what you think. This really did come from the USGA


Far Hills, N.J. (July 9, 2007) – The United States Golf Association (USGA) has named Peter Bevacqua its Chief Business Officer overseeing the revenue-producing activities conducted by the USGA. 

Bevacqua, 35, joined the organization as in-house corporate counsel in September of 2000. He has served as the managing director of U.S. Open Championships for the USGA since August of 2003. Bevacqua will become the first chief business officer in the Association’s history, reporting to USGA Executive Director David Fay. 

"I truly look forward to working with our staff and Executive Committee in connection with many of the ongoing activities and potential new revenue-producing activities of the USGA, including our broadcasting relationships, our USGA Members program and our new corporate partnerships,” said Bevacqua. “It is an exciting next step for me and for the USGA." 

Ah, the Members program as a revenue producing activity. Maybe they can sell ads in that sexy newsletter?

Prior to joining the USGA, Bevacqua was with the New York law firm of Davis, Polk & Wardwell. Bevacqua graduated magna cum laude from the University of Notre Dame in 1993, and earned his Juris Doctor, cum laude, from the Georgetown University Law Center in 1997. Bevacqua resides in Bronxville, N.Y., with his wife, Tiffany, and will continue to operate out of the USGA's headquarters in Far Hills, N.J. 

What, no presence in The City?

"I am delighted that Pete's accepted this position," said Fay. "Pete has done a superb job as managing director of the Open and I am confident that he will provide strong leadership, creative thinking and solid judgment in this new and very important position. Pete has earned the respect of the USGA staff and I know his selection is fully and enthusiastically supported by our Executive Committee."
