Rory McIlroy revealed he intends joining the PGA Tour’s Players Advisory Committee (PAC) to get better involved with the decisions being made on Tour.

The 16-player committee is the PGA Tour equivalent of the European Tour’s Tournament Advisory Committee, and directly advises Tour Commissioner, Jay Monahan and the Ponte Vedre-based Board of Directors.
“I had a couple conversations with Jay (Monahan – PGA Tour Commissioner) and I’m not on the PAC,” McIlroy said.
“I’m probably going to join the PAC next year.  Nice to sort of know what’s going on and give your input and whatever.”

One decision that clearly has not warmed McIlroy’s heart is the decision, and confirmed on the eve of the Tour Championship, is that winning the season-long FedEx Cup victory will count as a Tour victory as opposed to winning an individual tournament.
“I mean, I like it for the FedExCup but I don’t know how it fits in with — I don’t necessarily think it should be an official Tour win,” said McIlroy.
“I don’t know how the World Ranking points are going to work in that regard.
“So, there’s a lot of stuff that still needs to be figured out with the new format from next year.”
Jordan Spieth will from 2019 chair the committee and take over from Davis Love 111.
