Two-time PGA Tour winner Seamus Power has been voted onto the 16-member PGA Tour Player Advisory Council (PAC) for 2024 while fellow Irishman Shane Lowry has chosen to step down.

News of the new-look PAC was released today by the Tour, and is in place to advise and consults with the PGA TOUR Policy Board (Board of Directors) and Commissioner Jay Monahan on issues affecting the TOUR.

Nine players who were on the 2023 PAC – Ryan Armour, Corey Conners, Rickie Fowler, Brice Garnett, Lowry, Maverick McNealy, Henrik Norlander, Adam Scott and Will Zalatoris – did not return this year, though Scott became a player director.

Kevin Streelman and Camilo Villegas have been selected by the Player Directors to run for PAC Chairman via election, which ends February 27. The leading vote-getter will replace Jordan Spieth on January 1, 2025, as a Player Director on the PGA TOUR Policy Board, serving a three-year term (2025-27).

The other Player Directors are Patrick Cantlay (2024-26), Peter Malnati (2023-25), Adam Scott (2024-26), Webb Simpson (2023-25) and Tiger Woods.

Griffin was very vocal last fall discussing who should replace Rory McIlroy on the board, telling Golfweek, “The guys that are making the decision are obviously going to look out for themselves. That’s where there is a disconnect for guys in my position, the normal guys. So having someone who will listen and not be only concerned about the top 10.”

Griffin added: “To have the deck stacked against us – we’re losing points, money, starts, it feels like, who’s making these decisions? Then you have what Jay did to us and I don’t know how he still has his job at this point.”
